The Spider #86 Audiobook
The Spider and His Hobo Army
by Norvell W. Page writing as Grant Stockbridge
Read by Nick Santa Maria
 
 
Murder and destruction had momentarily stupefied the nation. The zero hour had come. The vast and insidious Order of the Double Cross was ready to blast America from the face of the earth! Could Dick Wentworth, alias the Spider, wounded and at bay, crush the minions of the Double Cross, with only a handful of ragged, tatter-demalion hoboes who had rescued him and imbued him with a strange, new courage?
 
Norvell W. Page, a newspaperman and pulp author, was the primary architect behind the Spider. Writing under the pseudonym of Grant Stockbridge, he remade the Spider into his own psychic twin, often dressing up as the Master of Men when delivering his monthly manuscripts.
 
He spoke often of the Spider’s motivations. “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.
 
“Oh, there had been personal reasons behind his initial foray beyond the law—a dear friend was being framed out of life and honor and home. And there had been the example of his father, who had died when Wentworth was scarcely in his teens, a great lawyer murdered by criminals because he had dared defy them to save an innocent man they had made their scapegoat.”
 
In a letter to a Spider fan, Norvell W. Page wrote, “Think of me as Wentworth, if you will. The line between us is not too distinct.”
 
Nick Santa Maria once again brings the Spider to life in The Spider and His Hobo Army. Originally published in The Spider magazine, November, 1940.

Nick is the Spider!  Great job!  My grandchildren insist that I turn the Spider on when we ride the streets together!  They absolutely love it, and surprised to learn that only one man is able to captivate their attention  ... the master of men!
