Six Prints of Murder
by Robert Wallace
Read by Milton Bagby
 
 
Forged in war, The Phantom Detective wages a one-man battle on crime! Solving impossible mysteries and delivering his own justice, he is the underworld’s masked nightmare!
 
Baffling clues balk all attempts at solution as the Phantom pits himself against a sinister, fiendish master of crime whose heinous deeds defy justice! Diabolical plans are put into place that even the World’s Greatest Detective may be unable to decipher. And even if he can, it could mean his own death!
 
Oftentimes, readers of Pulp magazines in their Golden Age of publication read the wild, over the top stories for one reason - escape. Looking to get out of the humdrum of Depression or War era America, fans of all ages marveled to the adventures of larger than life heroes and insane villains. The Phantom Detective met this qualification to be a Pulp Hero, but also stood out in his own unique way as a relatable character. Though born into wealth, Richard Curtis Van Loan became a self-made man when he decided to become The Phantom Detective. Undertaking to train himself in every aspect of crimefighting, including disguises, forensics, psychology, and escape techniques, Van Loan crafted his own destiny. He also did this without a super scientist father, a likely mystical training in a far-off land, or any other such devices. Granted, he had wealth that many of his readers did not have at his disposal, but still, Van Loan was in many ways a regular joe who saw a need and came up with a very unique way of helping fill it. Yes, he is introduced in the earliest stories as a world renowned detective, but later tales fill out how he came to be such, why law enforcement around the world respects a masked man so much, something that many of his counterparts before, during, and after his series did not enjoy.
 
‘Six Prints of Murder’ was originally published in the June 1936 issue of The Phantom Detective Magazine and is read with pulse pounding intensity by award winning voice actor Milton Bagby.

Vultures of the Purple Death
by Robert J. Hogan
Read by Nick Santa Maria
 
 
They called G-8 the Flying Spy. History never recorded his exploits—and for good reason! No one would ever believe World War I was that wild!
 
Men without faces, without hearts and without souls — ambassadors of murder! These were the opponents of the Master Spy — men driven to madness by the blood-lust of Krueger — the heartless, avenging Vultures of the Purple Death! Who were these faceless sky beasts that roamed the fields and the skies of death, stealing the blood of the blind? G-8, himself, was swallowed in this Purple Curse — left helpless and alone — exposed to the merciless hand of the enemy — an enemy gone mad with its thirst for blood, spreading its scourge across the civilized world!
 
110 full length G-8 and His Battle Aces pulp stories show that creator Robert J. Hogan knew what he was doing writing tales that would thrill readers for decades. Hogan brought his own unique take to World War One as well as crafting G-8 in such a way that, although a hero, he was also enough of an everyman to intrigue readers from issue to issue. With that in mind, however, Hogan also knew the audience he was writing for. Pulp fans looked for particular characteristics, certain tropes in their Hero pulps, and Hogan gave them enough to keep them coming back.
 
G-8 was indeed a hero and although not superhuman, he was the top pilot and spy in the game. He also had his team, his aides, in the form of Nippy and Bull, as well as Battle, his manservant. Most of all, Hogan was a master of Pulp pacing, making sure that the story moved at a breakneck speed toward an explosive end, with G-8 sometimes barely victorious.
 
Nick Santa Maria brings G-8, Nippy and Bull to thrilling life in their desperate struggle to defeat a deadly nemesis unlike anything they have ever before encountered in ‘Vultures of the Purple Death’. Originally published in the August 1936 issue of G-8 and His Battle Aces magazine.
 
Nick DeGregorio composed the music for the G-8 and His Battle Aces series of audiobooks.

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.
 
G-8 and his Battle Aces rode the nostalgia boom ten years after World War I ended. These high-flying exploits were tall tales of a World War that might have been, featuring monster bats, German zombies, wolf-men, harpies, Martians, and even tentacled floating monsters. Most of these monstrosities were the work of Germany’s seemingly endless supply of mad scientists, chief of whom was G-8’s recurring Nemesis, Herr Doktor Krueger. G-8 battled Germany’s Halloween shock troops for over a decade, not ceasing until the magazine folded in the middle of World War II. G-8 and his Battle Aces return in vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.

The Lone Eagle eBook
February 1940
 
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.
 
The Lone Eagle was Intelligence Agent John Masters, fighting ace of World War I, world's greatest sky fighter. The Lone Eagle magazine told his stories, his amazing adventurers in the air. John Masters was a newspaper reporter for a Chicago paper, but known to only two men, he was secretly The Lone Eagle, special agent and pilot extraordinaire. By 1940 the second world war raged in Europe, and the stories in The Lone Eagle were updated to feature conflicts in the current war. The Lone Eagle was published by Thrilling Publications, home of its companion pulps Air War and Sky Fighters. It made its inaugural appearance with the September 1933 issue. In August 1941 the title of the magazine was changed to The American Eagle, partially because Charles Lindbergh, the inspiration for these stories, was opposed to America's entry into World War II. There was another slight change to the title in the Spring 1943 issue, and it became known as American Eagles. That was the final issue. A total of 75 of John Masters' adventures had been published during its ten year run. The Lone Eagle returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.
