The Spider #63 Audiobook
The Withering Death
by Wayne Rogers writing as Grant Stockbridge
Read by Nick Santa Maria
 
 
Sere, ghastly, the Severed Hand brought its grisly warning to New York. Its citizens must pay the extortioner’s price or die, their living bodies slowly, agonizingly transformed into rigid mummies! The police were helpless, and only Richard Wentworth, in the Spider’s weird garb, could wage battle — against the master murder-chemist who killed to corral a fortune!
 
Author and former crime reporter Norvell W. Page, who penned the majority of the Spider’s exploits as Grant Stockbridge in Popular Publications’ infamous pulp magazine, The Spider, once described his hero in gigantic but unflinching terms: “His exploits had raised him to the proportions of a legendary hero. In ancient times, Rome would have made him an emperor-god. Salem might have burned him as a sorcerer. The modern world—well, the police had offered rewards totaling thousands of dollars for his capture ‘dead or alive.’ And the Underworld hated him and plotted his destruction with a fierceness bred of abject terror.
 
“Yes, Richard Wentworth was a murderer in the eyes of the law—a butcher who had slain a hundred, a thousand of his fellow men. They took no account of the fact he killed only those who richly deserved to die, that he alone had prevented a score of master criminals from overwhelming the forces of law and order.”
 
“There’s a madness that gets in me when the Spider walks....” Wentworth once admitted.
 
Once more,the incomparable Nick Santa Maria reads another thrilling Spider exploit. The Withering Death originally published in The Spider magazine, December, 1938.
