The Ghost! To men of crime, the name sends stabs of terror along their spines. Only six people know that George Chance, professonal stage magician, is in reality the crime fighter, the terror of the underworld, The Ghost! His assistants are Glen Saunders, his near-twin, Joe Harper, man about town, Tiny Tim Terry, a midget, and Merry White, his on-stage assistant and off-stage sweetheart. They know the secret of The Ghost. Ned Standish, Commissioner of Police and Robert Demarest, keen-eyed Medical Examiner are also "in the know." The following year, George Chance added a ghastly green glow to his death's-head features, and became widely known as The Green Ghost.
The Ghost first appeared in the January 1940 issue of "The Ghost, Super-Detetive" published by Thrilling Publications, responsible for such other fare as The Black Bat, Captain Danger and The Phantom Detective. He had a total of fourteen adventures published over the next four years. Mystery and magic — thrills and excitement — legerdemain and suspense — you’ll find them all in the Ghost’s repertoire. Now, The Ghost, sometimes called The Green Ghost, returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.
