Diamonds 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!
 
The Phantom Detective takes part in a mad race with death on the gory trail of a sinister killer whose victims writhe in a strangle-hold of dread! As he runs the gauntlet of organized crime — facing the worst that the cohorts of criminality can threaten — bravely storming the very lairs of the Grim Reaper in his one-man war on the underworld, the world’s greatest sleuth’s resourceful brain and varied accomplishments are often taxed to the utmost capacity. Never have the fates so conspired against him — never have the forces of evil arrayed themselves so strongly, in such evil guise, to combat him as in this mystery in which the dreaded Scourge of the Underworld goes through a diabolical ordeal that will chill you to the marrow!
 
The Phantom Detective was more or less a straightforward lawman, albeit in a mask. Other Pulp heroes took on lost races, psychotic madmen with plots to litter the streets of New York with thousands of bodies, or mysterious monsters and insane mad scientists. The Phantom Detective, more often than not, steered clear of such outlandish threats and focused more specifically on street level crimes, be it actual crimes against citizens or massive underworld plots to rob the world blind. This more realistic take on a Pulp hero may have made the character easier for multiple authors to either write stories from beginning to end, or even to take tales they were already writing and simply rework them to fit as a Phantom Detective adventure. Regardless, the accessibility of the series made sure that Phantom Detective fans had 170 stories to read from a fantastic variety of authors.
 
‘Diamonds of Death’ was originally published in the June 1934 issue of The Phantom Detective Magazine and is read with pulse pounding intensity by award winning voice actor Milton Bagby.

Recruit for the Spider Legion
by Norvell W. Page writing as Grant Stockbridge
Read by Nick Santa Maria
 
 

The Master and his evil clan of one-eyed executioners sprung their man-breaker trap on Police Commissioner Kirkpatrick. The Spider, speeding to the aid of his friendly enemy, Kirkpatrick, brought the full fury of Kali’s assassins down on his own head. And Commissioner Kirkpatrick, the soul of honor, was forced to fight outside the law he had always upheld!

 
The genius of Norvell W. Page’s Spider lies in Richard Wentworth having a secret identity, but hardly anyone being fooled by it! The white-hot relationships between the cast of characters were mature, even modern by our standards. This while he battled supercriminals such as the Fly, Iron Man and the Bat-Man. Authentically captured, the Spider would make a wonderful high-velocity movie.
 
As the Spider, Richard Wentworth believed in his mission implicitly: “He was, he told himself, no longer a human being, but a cause. He was the Spider! He must live to defend humanity....”
 
The reader could easily believe it. With a “cold cosmic anger” in his eyes, his “eerie weapons of mercy” blasting away, the Spider seemed superhuman, shrugging off crippling bullet wounds and performing other feats of preternatural endurance that would have demolished an ordinary mortal. No wonder Norvell W. Page called him a “man of steel” four years before Superman.
 
This thrilling Spider audiobook features acclaimed voice talent Nick Santa Maria, who has made the Spider his own! Recruit for the Spider Legion originally published in The Spider magazine, March, 1943.

Volume 2
Gene Moyers, Greg Hatcher, Tim Holter Bruckner and Terry Alexander
Read by Paul Curtis
 
 
The Robin Hood of Great City
 
In the middle of the Great Depression, many unscrupulous people found ways to enrich their own wealth while ignoring the plight of those less fortunate. It was an injustice the law could not remedy. Men like Detective Sgt. Stephen Thatcher found themselves at odds with the very laws they were sworn to uphold. But, unlike the others, Thatcher solved his moral dilemma by creating an alter-ego who would rob from the very rich and give to the poor. Wearing a bizarre argus glass globe over his head, the Moon Man became the Robin Hood of Great City and one of pulpdom’s most endearing classic heroes.
 
Writers Gene Moyers, Greg Hatcher, Tim Bruckner and Terry Alexander have now whipped up four new stories pitting the Moon Man against a variety of foes and challenges. From a group of street kids emulating The Moon Man to deadly Nazi saboteurs, the glass globe wearing champion of the underdogs, finds himself battling as never before to see that justice will triumph in the end.
 
Read with stirring excitement by Paul Curtis.

In the late 1930s, the "Golden Age of Science Fiction" began, and Thrilling Wonder Stories played a large part in its explosive growth. It began in 1936, after combining Science Wonder Stories and Air Wonder Stories into a single magazine. Along with its sister publication Startling Stories, Thrilling Wonder Stories featured some of the brightest names in science fiction. Edmond Hamilton, who went on to create Captain Future, cut his teeth writing for Thrilling Wonder Stories. Eando Binder, creator of robot Adam Link, was regularly featured in the magazine. Other writers included Frederick Arnold Kummer, Arthur Leo Zagat, Murray Leinster, A.E. van Vogt, James Blish, Ray Bradbury and John W. Campbell. Thrilling Wonder Stories returns in vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.

Comments From Our Customers!

Gary Crawford writes:
I had ordered Information Please #2 on a whim since it was on sale. I’m HOOKED. In five days I’ve gone through the whole set. My bus commute is very long…and so I can finish one CD on the way into work and one on the way home. This show is so understated that it’s charming, but never dull. Well, rarely ever. This set from 1939 is also features some very prophetic moments when some of the experts begin talking about what they think is going to happen internationally. Example---they were discussing WWI as the “big” war and one of the commentators in subtle fashion said, “the next one is going to be bigger”. I got a chill from that. And of course the guest experts like Gracie Allen and Lillian Gish are delightful……and I was floored when Clifton announced one of the questions was submitted by author, Upton Sinclair. The commercials actually had me thirsty for some Canada Dry ginger ale.

The audio quality is, for the most part, pristine and sounds like it was broadcast just last week. I guess part of that is due to your restoration work and also due to the fact that many of the shows were recorded for playback on the West coast, so there was always a recording made. Whether you had access to the original discs or dubs made from them, I don’t know, but it sounds soooooo good. I just ordered Volume 4 a few minutes ago.

Thanks again for making these available. If not for your company and the half price sale you had on Volume 2, I probably would never have heard the show and would have missed a great experience.
