“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!”
 
The Whistler shared several aspects with other hosts of radio anthology shows, from the Mysterious Traveler to the Hermit in The Hermit’s Cave. Some of this was simply inherent in anthology programs with hosts, each show wanting to give its narrator his or her own personality. The shared characteristics include everything from their roles as passive observers to some sort of trademark laugh or phrase. Perhaps the most glaring comparisons can be made between The Whistler and The Shadow. Both had laughs that struck terror into the hearts of listeners and thrilled them each and every week. Both shows also had unique openings that almost became catch phrases for each of them. And a common characteristic amongst all these types of characters was definitely present in The Whistler - the almost arcane knowledge of the evil that lies in every man’s heart.
 
The comparisons between The Whistler and The Shadow go even deeper. Both initially have their origins as narrators for crime centered radio anthology shows, The Shadow hosting Detective Story Hour before helming his own program. Although no real physical description was given to The Whistler, the aspects of the character on the radio program lend themselves to the same sort of image The Shadow casts- a dark figure in cloak and hat watching from the shadows, waiting for crime to be committed, for death to come. While The Shadow, however, went on to fight crime, The Whistler was quite pleased simply to continue observing and sharing it with listeners.
 
Experience the weird justice of The Whistler in this astounding Radio Archives collection. Listen to twelve broadcasts in The Whistler, Volume 18 restored to sparkling digital quality and as originally aired in 1949.

Harvest of Death
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!
 
Three men fall victim under the grim scythe of slaughter — with never a word to utter testimony against their ruthless betrayer! The Phantom sets himself the task of discovering a secret of doom locked within dead lips!
 
House names, that is multiple authors writing under a single pseudonym for a series, were fairly commonplace in Pulp magazines. Notable characters often had only one author attached to them on the covers of magazines, but in reality, multiple scribes may have added to their legacies. This was no different for The Phantom Detective and actually this particular series may have held the record for the number of authors writing under a single house name, due in part to its 170 issue and twenty year run. It is fairly well accepted that the first eleven issues, all of them under the name G. Wayman Jones, may have all actually been written by noted Pulp author D. L. Champion. The house name changed, however, with issue twelve, switching to Robert Wallace. Some experts and fans have theorized that this was done to perhaps gain some recognition due to the similarly named mystery writer of the period, Edgar Wallace. Although a list of authors contributing to The Phantom Detective has been compiled at various times, no one single author seemed to consistently write the character for any consecutive length of time. Norman A. Daniels wrote the most stories under the Wallace name, penning more than 36 tales. Each author, whether they took the Phantom Detective far afield or kept him close to the crime ridden streets, left an indelible mark on the character, adding to the most interesting legacy in Pulp.
 
‘Harvest of Death’ was originally published in the May 1937 issue of The Phantom Detective Magazine and is read with pulse pounding intensity by award winning voice actor Milton Bagby.

Flight of the Green Assassin
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!
 
The bony fingers of Death and chill of the hungry grave hang over the Western Front, as the Master Spy fights a menace he does not understand! What greed for power and what disdain for human life can have given wings to this Master Mind of Crime who brings his Green Death to the Sky? What manner of man can laugh while brave men give up their lives; what genius of destruction can render G-8 helpless? Yellow hands upon the triggers of destruction blaze their bloody path across the skies and reach with their skeletal fingers for the life of the Master Spy!
 
Even though G-8 and His Battle Aces took on creatures from the depths of Hell and things not even conceived of in nightmares, readers connected to America’s Master Spy for another reason. Author Robert J. Hogan pulled no punches in creating a World War One unlike the event in the history books, yet it was still World War One. The planes G-8 and his men flew were accurate, the descriptions of war and period pieces necessary to set the scene were dead on, and overall the feel Hogan provided allowed fans to feel as if the war G-8 was fighting might have been the actual battle going on, one hidden from the public.
 
Just enough reality seeped into the pulp pages to hook the interested. With the hint that these stories were related to Hogan by the Flying Spy himself, the dangerous blend of historic authenticity with the outlandish plots and fiends thrown at him every month made G-8 a must read for many fans.
 
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 ‘Flight of the Green Assassin’. Originally published in the September 1937 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.

Chinese Martial Artist, Yi Xiao, having been transplanted to California is still seeking his Doa, that elusive wisp of spiritual peace that is so elusive.

Bly’s goal is to steal the all-powerful magic of the mighty Old Man Mountain spirit and Xiao has to stop him.
 
Luckily Yi Xiao has his own unique allies. There is Wu Chang, the walking-dead martial artists sent from China by Xiao’s grandmother to be his bodyguard. Then there is Deathshead, the Indian Coyote spirit with his own agenda and a community of Spanish born sisters that also possess strange arcane abilities. Throw in a water horse and a fire snake creature and once again writer Barbara Dorn cooks up a fantasy stew unlike anything ever imagined.

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.

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.
 
Thrilling Mystery magazine came from Thrilling Publications, who also produced titles such as Thrilling Wonder Stories, Thrilling Adventures, Thrilling Western, Thrilling Sports, Thrilling Love, Thrilling Baseball, Thrilling Detective, Thrilling Ranch, Thrilling Sports. They also published a number of pulp magazines without "Thrilling" in the title, such as Captain Future, The Black Bat, The Green Ghost and the Phantom Detective.
 
Thrilling Mystery made its debut in October 1935 as a weird menace publication, following the success of other magazines like Dime Mystery and Terror Tales. As public tastes changed, so did the magazine, gradually phasing out the weird menace angle, and becoming a conventional mystery magazine. With the winter 1945 issue, the title changed to Thrilling Mystery Novel Magazine. In the summer of 1947 it became Detective Mystery Novel Magazine, and finally in the winter of 1949 issue, the title became 2 Detective Mystery Novels Magazine. It was a long-lived pulp magazine that published its last issue in the winter of 1951. Thrilling Mystery returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.
