The Spider #42 Audiobook
Satan's Workshop
by Emile C. Tepperman writing as Grant Stockbridge
Read by Nick Santa Maria
There was no clue to the kidnapping of wealthy, powerful men and beautiful, talented women — until the Man Who Dealt in Death broke into Richard Wentworth’s stroll in the moonlight with the wanton wounding of his own lookout. From that stricken gangster Wentworth obtained the first hint of the devil-brain that was using science and surgery, death and torture and extortion, to enslave the city’s great. And Wentworth, better known as the Spider, answered the challenge of the Laboratory of the Lost — gambling life and more against weird dangers that no man had ever faced before!
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. Legend has it that he was playing tennis and spotted a spider walking across the court. That gave him a catchy yet creepy title. 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, a newspaperman and practitioner of the Edgar Allen Poe tradition in pulps such as Dime Mystery Magazine. 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 Satan's Workshop with indescribable emotion. Originally published in The Spider magazine, March, 1937.
