The Spider #43 eBook
April 1937
by Emile C. Tepperman writing as Grant Stockbridge
 
Total Pulp Experience. These exciting pulp adventures have been beautifully reformatted for easy reading as an eBook and features every story, every editorial, and every column of the original pulp magazine. As a special bonus, Will Murray has written an introduction especially for this series of eBooks.
 
Another epic exploit of America’s best-loved pulp-fiction character of the 1930s and 1940s: The Spider — Master of Men! Richard Wentworth — the dread Spider, nemesis of the Underworld, lone wolf anti-crime crusader who always fights in that grim no-man’s land between Law and lawless — returns in vintage pulp tales of the Spider, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.

Satan’s Smoke — An Editorial
 
The Full-Length Spider Novel
Scourge of the Yellow Fangs
by Emile C. Tepperman writing as Grant Stockbridge
The curse first fell upon the squalid settlements where Oriental folk lived their transplanted lives in growing terror of the new menace against which the white man's law could not protect them. But it burgeoned in murder and massacre until New York and her sister cities saw grim chaos on the horizon, rolling up with the swift deadliness of a man-made thunder-head. Only the Spider sensed the hidden purpose that launched the Scourge of the Yellow Fangs. And the Spider — Richard Wentworth to his friends — was a man already marked for ghastly death.

5 of 5 A good one! February 26, 2022
Reviewer: Michael Klein from Tampa, FL United States  
Another in the "yellow peril" line of that era, but it makes for a more believable story because the villain is just who he is; no mask (which always tell you some goon you read about in passing is the brains of the outfit), and he has no completely weird schtick (heat rays, flame-throwers, etc, etc) like most of Wentworth's foes. In fact, most of the stories featuring criminal masterminds from afar are generally like this.

While prejudice against Asians in literature  abounded in that age,  the story does a commendable job of giving our Asian citizens of that time a fair break, often treating them with a measure of dignity. I've noticed this in other Spider stories dealing with Chinese-Americans, so give them some begrudging credit there.

Above average story, an oh, Nita gets kidnapped (but you know that already, don't you?).
