Audio Clip
 
“I am the Whistler and I know many things, for I walk by night. I know many strange tales hidden in the hearts of men and women who have stepped into the shadows. Yes, I know the nameless terrors of which they dare not speak!”
 
Of the actors and actresses known as “Whistler’s Children,” director George Allen saw particular skills in each one that he used to his benefit. Allen utilized Gerald Mohr of Phillip Marlowe fame for either rather sophisticated characters or street level criminal goons. When he needed ‘a perfect blowtop’, someone who could express losing his cool just the right way, Allen brought in Wally Maher. Hans Conried also had his own place in Allen’s top choices for the show.
 
The Whistler didn’t shy away from having women at the heart of the chilling crime stories it told. And fortunately for director George Allen, he had extremely capable actresses to pick from amongst Hollywood’s Radio Row. Betty Lou Gerson starred in several episodes because, according to Allen, she could play “parts that convey mental superiority, she’s perfect for women who have catty, fencing dialogue.” Likewise, Allen made great use of Lurene Tuttle, stating that she “can be anything: she may change her performance on the air as she finds another facet of the character; she picks out the parts of her characterization that didn’t ring right in rehearsal and corrects them.”
 
Of all the familiar voices on The Whistler, it was the title character himself no one knew. The Whistler’s identity was kept mostly a secret, especially from listeners, for ten years. Even though The Whistler was portrayed by several actors over the years, Bill Forman is recognized as the penultimate voice of the character.
 
The Whistler combined horrific crimes, deserved justice, and an engaging narrator to make it one of the best shows of classic radio. Experience it for yourself with twelve broadcasts restored to sparkling digital quality by Radio Archives in The Whistler Volume 14.

G-8 and His Battle Aces #90 Audiobook

Raiders of the Red 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!

 

From the tombs of the Pharaohs to No Man’s Land, Death had placed his dreadful token — secret, invisible doom, sweeping cities from the face of the earth! While the very hand of War was stilled, a trapped army realized that only G-8, the Master Spy, remained to cope with this death blow to the Allies and the World!
 
As colorful as G-8 was as a hero, he was by no means alone on his various adventures. The Master Spy’s adventures as written by Robert J. Hogan were replete with solid, even over the top characters.
 
G-8’s Battle Aces were two pilots who helped him escape capture in his first printed adventure. Nippy and Bull would fly alongside the Master Spy for the entire run of the magazine.
 
Nippy and Bull, were based on actual pilots who, coincidentally, shared their first names. The interactions between Nippy and Bull often provided breaks of tension within the stories, even humor at times. The two characters also gave the often over the top, fantastical tales a more grounded feeling, something for readers to relate to.
 
Together, these three Battle Aces would fight a war that was equal parts nostalgic flashback, perhaps morbid fascination with the horrors of war, and the stuff nightmares are made of. Monsters and madmen flew into battle every month against G-8.
 
Known as a master of disguise, G-8 learned that skill from his manservant, the singularly named Battle. Battle also proved to be useful to his master and the Battle Aces in a variety of ways, even at times actively taking part in adventures when legs on the ground were needed.

 

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 Raiders of the Red Death Originally published in the March, 1941 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.

Volume 2 Feast of the Cannibal Guild
by Chuck Miller
Read by Paul Curtis
 
 
Return of the Bay Phantom
 
When a shadowy group of criminals start shaking down restaurants in Mobile, Joe Perrone once again dons the cloak and goggles of the Bay Phantom. Shortly thereafter, wealthy young men begin dropping dead without warning. What do these things have in common with a mysterious psychic, a sinister funeral home, and a nationalist movement known as the Transatlantic Patriots Guild?
 
That is what the Bay Phantom must learn, and he must do it without his trusted aide, Mirabelle Darcy. She is away on a mission of her own; one that necessitates her breaking into the Leavenworth Federal Penitentiary. Thus left to his own devices, can the Phantom thwart the Cannibal Guild and their deadly assassin, the Mummifier? Or will he become their next victim?
 
Once again Chuck Miller offers up a thrilling new adventure set in the Deep South and starring his original pulp hero; The Bay Phantom. This is pulp action with an added spicy kick. Read with stirring excitement by Paul Curtis.

The Lone Ranger rides again! Return with us to the old west, where one masked man and his faithful companion fought for justice. Four years after The Lone Ranger's broadcast debut, the popularity of the thrice-weekly radio series, prompted a short-lived series of pulp magazine stories. Trojan Publishing, which was also responsible for such pulp titles as Dan Turner, Hollywood Detective; Private Detective Stories and Spicy Detective Stories bought the magazine rights in 1937, and released the first issue of The Lone Ranger Magazine dated April 1937. After eight monthly issues, the final issue of the magazine was dated November 1937. The Lone Ranger returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.

Radio Archives Pulp Classics
Action Stories eBook
December 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.
 
Action Stories was one of many pulp magazines published by Fiction House, also known for their air pulps (Air Stories, Wings, Aces, George Bruce's Air Novels), western pulps (Lariat Stories, Frontier Stories, Civil War Stories), sports pulps (Fight Stories, Baseball Stories, Football Action), detective pulps (Detective Classics, Detective Book Magazine, Bull's-Eye Detective), science fiction pulps (Planet Stories) and general adventure pulps (True Adventures, Jungle Stories, Sheena). Action Stories published its first issue in September 1921. During its 30-year run, it contained a mixture of subjects, including sports fiction, war stories, adventures in exotic locations, a few science fiction tales, and a good smattering of western adventures. If a story couldn't find a place in any of the other Fiction House pulps, there was always room for it in Action Stories. Not to say these were second-tier stories, each was top-notch quality, which explains why the magazine survived for an amazing 224 issues. The final issue was published in the fall of 1950. Action Stories now returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.

Comments From Our Customers!
 
Robert Cockrum writes:
For some people, The Whistler is probably an "also ran," outdone by Suspense and its range of subject matter and those big Hollywood stars in leading roles. But The Whistler, I think, had more twists and turns -- somewhat like television's "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" -- or The Twilight Zone (but without so much sci-fi or fantasy).

Secret Agent "X". In terms of overall quality regarding these e-book publications, for the low cost, they can't be beat! While I rarely cover them in my reviews, in addition to getting a short novel length story about the titular character's exploits, the books also contain (usually) a mystery novella and a few short stories, which range from decent to excellent. There's also the rather quaint "Secret Council Meeting", which features letters from contemporary readers of the time, a run down on the featured story and a preview of the next edition.
