Cities for Ransom
by G. Wayman Jones
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!
 
Follow the Phantom Detective on the gory trail of a master criminal plotting the wholesale pillage and destruction of a great American metropolis. The Phantom Detective never gives up the grim game of life and death that he must play in the pursuit of his chosen career. No power on earth can stay his hand. Feared by the underworld — and himself fearless — the world’s greatest sleuth wades into the very thick of the fight against organized crime, a gallant leader in the mighty war waged by humanity on those who would undo progress and destroy civilization.
 
Many and formidable have been his opponents — but none so daring, none so diabolical or fiendishly ingenious as The Black Admiral, who sought to terrorize and plunder the principal cities of the United States — who conceived one of the most sinister plots ever to come out of the human brain!
 
According to legend, The Phantom Detective may be responsible for the direction a now famous comic strip character took in his own development. When first debuted by creator Lee Falk in 1936, the crimefighter known as The Phantom was actually Jimmy Wells, a millionaire playboy fighting crime in New York City. With these similarities, along with the character’s name being so close to that of The Phantom Detective, some believe that Falk may actually have taken inspiration from the pulp character. It may also have led Falk, according to sources, to make a decision that appeared to be sudden. Within the strip itself, the character took a hard turn from city bound masked man to being the now legendary jungle oriented ‘Ghost Who Walks’ that millions of fans recognize.
 
‘Cities for Ransom’ was originally published in the September 1933 issue of The Phantom Detective Magazine and is read with pulse pounding intensity by award winning voice actor Milton Bagby.

The Spider and the Flame King
by Norvell W. Page writing as Grant Stockbridge
Read by Nick Santa Maria
 
 
If you lived in the oil-field city of Piperstown, you’d be afraid to open the door of your own home . . . for nitro hell might explode in your very face. You’d dread stepping on the starter of your car. You’d cringe from opening your own breadbox. You’d know fear — such — as only the wanton cruelty of the Flame King could strike into your heart. And you’d blame the Spider for aiding in these atrocities. ... For the Spider — who fought alone to save life, property, and oil for our war effort — was blamed by the police for every new outrage. And the Flame King rode high on his self-made flood of black gold and red blood.
 
The Spider was the star of his own pulp magazine for a wild decade bound by 1933 and 1943. Seeing rival pulp house Street & Smith breaking sales records with The Shadow Magazine, Popular Publications president Harry Steeger decided to clone him. He hired mystery novelist and occultist R. T. M. Scott to write The Spider Strikes! and a sequel, The Wheel of Death. Mysteriously, Scott bowed out of the picture around the time of the first issue, dated October, 1933.
 
Enter Norvell W. Page. Writing under the pseudonym of Grant Stockbridge, he remade the Spider into his own psychic twin, often dressing up as the Master of Men when delivering his monthly manuscripts.
 
Nick Santa Maria reads The Spider and the Flame King with the crackling intensity you have come to expect of his superb talent. Originally published in The Spider magazine, December, 1942.

Legends Live Forever
 
Webster’s dictionary defines “Myth” as a traditional or legendary story, usually concerning some being or hero or event, with or without a determinable basis of fact or natural explanation, especially one that is concerned with deities or demigods and explains some practice, rite, or phenomenon of nature. A collection of myths is a mythology.
 
Airship 27 Productions now brings you four such tales of wonder and imagination as distilled through the minds of today’s New Pulp writers. The stories that have been handed down before the written word that still mesmerize and entertain us. In these pages you will find such eternal heroes as Hercules, Achilles, the Monkey King and Beowulf in classic adventures courtesy of Jaime Evans, Joel Jenkins, Barbara Doran and Fred Adams Jr.
 
In Pulp Mythology, ancient thrills are made new again and legends live forever. Read with stirring excitement by Paul Curtis.

The Phantom Detective! The name alone conjures up action and adventure. From the same publisher that brought you The Black Bat, Captain Danger, The Crimson Mask and The Green Ghost came one of pulpdom’s best-known detectives. Scourge of the underworld, The Phantom, as he was called, aided the Law with his sweetheart Muriel Havens. His first adventure was published in February 1933 and they continued for 170 thrilling exploits until the Summer 1953 issue. The Phantom Detective returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.

Radio Archives Pulp Classics
 
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.
 
Startling Stories was the younger sibling of Thrilling Wonder Stories. It began in 1939 at the urging of science fiction fans who clamored for a full-length novel in each issue. At this point, Thrilling Wonder Stories contained a variety of novelets and short stories, but fans wanted something longer that allowed for more character development. And thus, Startling Stories was born. Each issue started off with a book-length novel, and was filled out with a variety of short stories, science columns, special features and, of course, letters to the editor. Some of science-fiction's best authors appeared in Startling Stories, including luminaries such as Stanley G. Weinbaum, Eando Binder, Edmond Hamilton, Alfred Bester and Robert Campbell, Jr. The magazine thrived through the 1940s and early 1950s, but fading revenues forced it to close with the Fall 1955 issue, after a 99-issue run. Startling Stories now returns with these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.

Comments From Our Customers!

 
Lee Withers writes:
Boston had no idea what a hit it had when Bob Elliott and Ray Goulding began their Matinee with Bob & Ray on WHDH in the late 1940s. Fortunately, their gentle satire from their formative years is delightfully preserved by Radio Archives in a third volume of twelve half-hours digitally remastered from original WHDH 16” transcription discs. To single out a particular episode would be pointless, as they're all worth listening to (and yes, B&R fans, you'll hear even more of Linda Lovely, the precursor to their longer running soap opera parody, Mary Backstayge). The Two And Only; were at their best when they were biting the hand that was feeding them, radio...which was every time they got behind the microphone. There's a reason these two are legendary. And the proof is in this set.
