The Spider #78 Audiobook
Slaves of the Laughing Death
by Norvell W. Page writing as Grant Stockbridge
Read by Nick Santa Maria
Out of the dim recesses of the past came Munro, Man of a Thousand Faces, to corner America’s gold with a sinister agency for devouring flesh... and with a mysterious power to control mass emotions at will! Only one man was equipped to fight him — Richard Wentworth, alias The Spider. But The Spider was being stalked by three rich fearless adventurers whose one aim was to destroy him as ruthlessly as in the past they had trapped and killed beasts in the jungle!
One thing that sets the Spider apart from other hero characters is magnitude; the villains commit acts of destruction on a grand scale, sinking whole ocean liners, toppling entire buildings, wiping out entire towns with germ warfare. The evil masterminds are in truth more terrorists than criminals, their villainy often more for its own sake than any concrete plan for profit.
The Spider did not speak lightly of evil. He was too gentle, too tender a lover, to blot the glamorous night with useless vaporings. He was too courageous to take fright from vague notions. But through years of ceaseless struggle and hourly danger—not alone from the Underworld but also from the police who considered his brand-marked executions of criminals only murder—he had developed an uncanny feeling like the sixth sense of bats. Flying in the dark, scarcely seeing, the convoluted facial feelers of a bat received, apparently, an impact of air waves which forewarned the animal of obstacles in its path. So something—thought waves?—warned the Spider of danger.
