The Spider #71 Audiobook
The Spider and the Fire God
by Norvell W. Page writing as Grant Stockbridge
Read by Nick Santa Maria
 
 
The Master of Flame and Burning Death held New York fast in unholy worship of his strange god. For thousands had fled their doomed churches, lest they perish by fire — and the Spider alone remained to face this monstrous cult-leader from hell!
 
Driven, deadly, the Spider was a daredevil caught between the law that branded him as a criminal and the underworld he terrorized with his metallic laugh and searing lead. A self-appointed savior of humanity, driven manic-depressive, and possibly undiagnosed paranoid schizophrenic, the Spider was known and feared as the Master of Men.
 
While the Spider borrowed his black slouch hat and cloak from the already thriving Shadow, the rest of the character was significantly different. Richard Wentworth himself is strongly emotional, plumbing the thrills of victory as readily, and as deeply, as the depths of despair during his escapades. His long-suffering fiancée, Nita van Sloan, is a worthy character in her own right, though frequently relegated to the traditional role of hostage-bait. As additional exotic spice, Wentworth maintains a Sikh manservant/warrior companion, Ram Singh, as well as chauffeur Ronald Jackson, the sergeant from his old army days. Rounding out the cast of characters is Commissioner of Police Stanley Kirkpatrick, Wentworth’s staunch friend and the Spider’s greatest adversary; Kirkpatrick himself lives in a state of constant angst for fear that duty will one day force him to send his friend to the electric chair as punishment for the Spider’s crimes. And indeed, that fear nearly becomes fact on several occasions.
 
Nick Santa Maria breathes life into the Spider in The Spider and the Fire God. Originally published in The Spider magazine, August, 1939.
