The Spider #83 Audiobook
Pirates from Hell
by Norvell W. Page writing as Grant Stockbridge
Read by Nick Santa Maria
 
 
Across these broad United States swept the grisly hordes of LaFitte, modern counterpart of ancient, blood-thirsty piracy. In their horrible wake remained only red ruin and the charred skeletons of the Nation’s crack trains... Such was the criminal blitzkrieg of LaFitte, the brutal buccaneer no man dared challenge — save Richard Wentworth... alias the Spider!
 
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.”
 
The Spider was the only pulp hero to suffer under a messiah complex of immense proportions. As Norvell W. Page related his complicated backstory: “Wentworth had sworn his crusades of justice long ago solely because of his hatred of injustice, his great altruistic love for mankind.
