The Spider #118 Audiobook
When Satan Came to Town
by Prentice Winchell writing as Grant Stockbridge
Read by Nick Santa Maria
As if he did not have enough death and danger threatening every moment because of his dual identity as the Spider — that great crime-crusader hunted and hated by police and underworld alike — Richard Wentworth now took on a third role. And this was just as deadly a character part to play. As Case Brent, ex-inmate of Alcatraz, Wentworth tricked The Conqueror, and stood alone in the path of this master-madman’s hordes from hell as they attempted to riot and slaughter their bloody way through the whole of America — to the Capital!
A deeply religious man, Norvell W. Page began infusing his latter Spider stories with undercurrents of a strange spiritual quest. A Tibetan monk became a recurring character, issuing prophecies. Psychic phenomenon became a constant theme. Jesus was often evoked.
The Spider magazine folded with the December, 1943 issue, battered and bloodied by the onslaught of the new comic book superheroes, wartime paper shortages which led to wholesale cancellations of pulp magazines, and the tragic death of Norvell W. Page’s first wife, Audrey. He coped by abandoning fiction altogether and becoming a writer for the Office of War Information, later working for various Washingtonian entities. He died in 1961, never imagining that the Spider would birth a weird posterity.
Nick Santa Maria reads When Satan Came to Town with the crackling intensity you have come to expect of his superb talent. Originally published in The Spider magazine, December, 1943.
