Suspense
Volume 22
 
 
“And now...another tale well-calculated to keep you in ... SUSPENSE!”
 
Fans and experts alike recall many episodes of Suspense as spine tingling thrillers or even tales of horror, and so often it gets listed along with other anthology shows with similar pedigrees. What often gets overlooked, however, is that more often than not, Suspense proved to be one of the finest showcases for true mysteries, from whodunits to procedurals and beyond, to ever air on radio.
 
While mysteries often also qualify as thrillers and even end up tales of horror, Suspense specialized in tension building tales of crime and detection. The lead might be a hard boiled cop or an unfortunate who just stumbled their way into murder and intrigue. Regardless, director William Spier and the Suspense writers insured that, just like nearly the entire run of the series, every mystery presented on Suspense was top notch.
 
Of course, it didn’t hurt that Spier’s go to writer was one John Dickson Carr, a legend even at the time in mystery fiction. Carr understood not only how to properly construct a mystery, but also how to draw a listener into the story, to make it real, regardless of how fantastic the premise might be. This worked well with Spier’s direction, also aimed at pulling performances out of his cast that would make the hearts of listeners race right along with them.
 
In ‘The Flame Blue Glove’, Lana Turner plays a private investigator forced by her own sense of duty back to work, taking up a very personal murder case. ‘The Search for Isabel’ also features a mystery, sending a man in search of the person who once had his phone number. In each episode, the pacing of the stories combined with the skill of the actors brings listeners to the edge of their seat for the conclusions just as much as any horror or thriller tale would.
 
Enjoy twelve stellar shows of mystery, thrills, chills, action, and adventure in Suspense, Volume 22, from Radio Archives, restored to Sparkling audio quality by Radio Archives.

The Murder Prophet
by G. Wayman Jones
Read by Milton Bagby
 
 
Out of the night comes a menacing winged figure! Blind district attorney Tony Quinn takes his battle for justice from the courtrooms to the streets, battling evil as The Black Bat!
 
A doctor of deviltry is one of the suspects in a baffling mystery that defies solution! When the mysterious death predictions of a jittery little man prove uncannily accurate, Tony Quinn begins an investigation which pits him against a diabolical, elusive master of crime!
 
The Black Bat’s crusade against crime very much resembles that of Tony Quinn, his true identity. Using his position as a Special Attorney, Quinn identifies criminals that need to be brought to justice and The The Black Bat’s crusade against crime mirrors that of Tony Quinn, his secret identity. Quinn uses his position as a Special Attorney to identify criminals that need to be brought to justice and The Black Bat lends a gauntleted hand to law enforcement by doing so, often outside the very law that Quinn stands for. This leads Quinn to facing off more with racketeers, gangsters, and murderers than he does monsters, dictators, and mad scientists. It also often leaves him not only pursued by the lawless, but also by those sworn to uphold the law.
 
Although The Black Bat often assists Commissioner Warner’s police force, one man in particular makes discovering who The Black Bat is his personal mission. Promoted from lieutenant and detective sergeant, the eventual Captain McGrath is a friend of Tony Quinn’s. Even with that, however, McGrath remains convinced for much of the series that The Black Bat and the ‘blind’ lawyer are in fact the same person. He bases this on them having similar physical appearances and other characteristics. McGrath, as is always the case in these situations, is always one step behind in proving that Tony Quinn is The Black Bat!
 
Thrill to The Murder Prophet originally published in Black Book Detective #74 June 1947 and read with two fisted excitement by award winning voice actor Milton Bagby.

Suspense Magazine eBook
#2 Summer 1951
 
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.
 
Inspired by the CBS Radio program series, Suspense Magazine brought readers the finest in tales of nail-biting thrills. It contained a wide variety of stories, from mystery to science fiction, from fantasy to the macabre, every one a real page-turner. Farrell Publications brought out the first issue in Spring of 1951, and priced this quarterly magazine at 35¢, when other magazines were more traditionally 20¢, so that it could pay its writers at a higher rate. It attracted names like William Tenn, John Dickson Carr, Theodore Sturgeon, Ray Bradbury, Ambrose Bierce and A.E. van Vogt. Unfortunately, financial constraints forced the magazine to close publication after only four issues. The final one was dated Winter 1952. Suspense Magazine returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.

#74 June 1947
 
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.
 
Black Book Detective magazine was probably best known for its long-running series of adventure stories featuring the crimefighter known as The Black Bat. But The Black Bat didn't appear until six years into the magazine's run with the July 1939 issue. The magazine first hit the newsstands with the June 1933 issue. For the next six years, it tried different approaches. Issue one began with a featured novel and several backup short stories. The following year it started promoting "three new complete novels" in each magazine, but abandoned that approach after four issues. It then tried shorter novelets, combined with short stories. In 1935 and 1936, it tried the "weird menace" approach, featuring scantily-clad women in peril on the covers, then switched back to hard crime. In 1938 they tried featuring recurring characters in their main novel. Gentleman thief Raffles appeared in two consecutive issues. Jonathan Drake, Ace Manhunter appeared in three issues.
 
The editors struck gold with The Black Bat, who first appeared in the July 1939 issue. Supposedly blind District Attorney Tony Quinn was secretly the master crime fighter known as The Black Bat. The stories were credited to the house name of G. Wayman Jones, but in actuality were written mainly by Norman A. Daniels. The Black Bat stories ran exclusively in the bi-monthly Black Book Detective magazine until it finally printed its last issue in the Winter of 1953. Black Book Detective returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.

Explore the amazing worlds of tomorrow with Dynatmic Science Fiction! This pulp magazine published its first issue with December 1952, when the science fiction boom was nearing its peak. It came from a small publishing company, Columbia Publications, in Massachussets. Columbia Publications started producing pulp magazines in 1934 with the debut of Double Action Western Magazine and continued publishing a wide variety of magazines, detective, romance, western, sports, air adventure and mystery. Unfortunately Dynamic Science Fiction failed to find an audience and only six issues were published in its entirety. The sixth and final issue was the January 1954 issue. During that unfortunately short run, some of science-fiction's biggest names appeard in the magazine. Lester del Rey, Alfred Coppel, Poul Anderson, Arthur C. Clarke, James Blish, and others appeared in its pages. Dynamic Science Fiction returns in vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.

During the science-fiction boom of the 1930s, there were over a dozen pulp magazines dedicated to the subject. Analog, Startling Stories, Amazing Stories, Wonder Stories, Captain Future and Super Science Stories were just a few. In 1939, the pulp magazine publisher of Jungle Stories, and many others, added its own entry into the sci-fi field, Planet Stories. Until it folded in 1955, it published ground-breaking science fiction from some of the genre's brightest stars, including such luminaries as Ray Cummings, Frederic Arnold Kummer, Jr., Eando Binder, Leight Bracket, Isaac Asimov, Clifford D. Simak, Henry Kuttner, Ray Bradbury, Frederik Pohl, James Blish, A.E. van Vogt, Theodore Sturgeon, Alan E. Nourse and Robert Sheckley. Planet Stories returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.

Thanks for all the work you do in preserving the golden age of radio!
 
Charles from Canada writes:
These old pulps often offer us modern-day readers a historical time capsule of their period, and that especially seemed the case with this installment of Operator 5. Just happened to be reading about the Isolationist-Interventionist debates in the pre-WWII era, so for me this book's period flavor made for fascinating reading, as it wades chin-deep into that political hot-button issue of the day. Also worth mentioning: I think this is the first appearance of a really fun idea that the author will continue for a handful of stories..: the “Hidden Hundred”, a mysterious group of rebellious agents formed to... well, no spoilers..!

I was excited to see Miracle Science Stories made available in ebook form. It is a rare pulp, and really the best way to read it is electronically. Buying the ebook and downloading it was easy. Now I’m enjoying the stories, which are quite good.
