The Spider #73 Audiobook
The Spider and the Eyeless Legion
by Norvell W. Page writing as Grant Stockbridge
Read by Nick Santa Maria
 
 
How could a man, enslaved and blinded, still strike terror to the hearts of his captors? How could that man, apparently helpless, remain the only hope of a city laid low by crime? Read here how the Master of Men cast off his shackles and led a populace to redemption and vengeance! The most gripping, dramatic Spider novel ever published!
 
The problem for his poor writer, Norvell W. Page, was that there are only so many plot variations for a hero who fought crime in his dual identities. So as the year 1939 dawned, Page’s editors must have put their heads together and asked themselves, “What can we do that we’ve never done before?”
 
Evidently, they decided to subject Dick Wentworth, his fiancee Nita van Sloan, and the other stalwart Spider crew to a monthly series of challenges designed to make the readers clutch at their hearts.
 
The stirring sequence began with Rule of the Monster Men, and ran for half a year––no doubt the worst of Richard Wentworth’s harried and hectic career.
 
The Spider and the Eyeless Legion is the final part of this multi-story sequence of Spider novels in which first Nita van Sloan was reduced to a helpless cripple, and then Wentworth himself was forced to become a wanted fugitive. It is in that unaccustomed and dangerous role that this electrifying novel takes place.
 
This time, Wentworth must battle a new underworld power who is determined to conquer New York City, using the power of the Eyeless Terror as his sinister scepter. Forced to don new disguises and alternate identities, separated from his loyal aides, former millionaire Richard Wentworth works the mean streets as he attempts to topple this latest underworld czar. Then things take a terrible turn as the Spider is struck blind and enslaved by the malevolently fat Amoy.
 
The incomparable Nick Santa Maria narrates another thrilling Spider exploit. Originally published in The Spider magazine, October, 1939.
