The Spider #67 Audiobook
Blight of the Blazing Eye
by Wayne Rogers writing as Grant Stockbridge
Read by Nick Santa Maria
Over New York fell the murderous spell of Death’s burning stare — and men died in the throes of some terrible, secret, inner fire! Richard Wentworth, alone, as the Spider, dared challenge this astounding attack by a modern Genghis Khan gone mad with a passion for loot and power!
The Spider was by far the most complicated and violent pulp hero. Yet there was a human side to this complex man. Consider his strange relationship with his semi-fiancé, Nita van Sloan.
When he had met Nita, his life was already pledged to the service of humanity. The Spider had been a scourge of the Underworld for three full years. So he had fought against the love he knew could never reached culmination in marriage. What man could marry, have a home and children, when death and disgrace hung hourly over his head? No, he could not permit Nita to face such a possibility. He had told her that, long ago, when they found their love was stronger than the will to resist; had told her about his secret life in the hope that it might accomplish what his will had not. It had only drawn Nita closer to him, and they had fought the hard way together. As Wentworth once remarked to her, “How perfectly is thy mystic karma attuned to mine!”
His best friend, Commissioner Stanley Kirkpatrick, pointedly informed him on one blunt occasion that he would send Richard Wentworth to the death house if positive proof that the wealthy criminologist was really the Spider ever came into his hands. Once, Kirkpatrick actually did. And Wentworth admired him for it.
Nick Santa Maria reads Blight of the Blazing Eye with indescribable emotion. Originally published in The Spider magazine, April, 1939.

Reviewer: Blain Toman from Ellsworth , KS United States  
Nick is amazingly talented!  He breathes life into each reading, including this one!  Wayne did a great job in continuing the manic pace that Page has relentlessly set for our hero.  At times I feared that I was confused or lost!  But Nick ... aka ... THE MASTER OF MEN, triumphs!  I enjoyed it!
