The Spider #89 Audiobook
The Spider and the Slave Doctor
by Norvell W. Page writing as Grant Stockbridge
Read by Nick Santa Maria
In the name of Humanity, young Doctor Gilmuir bravely faced execution for a ghastly murder he didn’t commit! And Richard Wentworth, the only man who could save him, must first crush the slaves of the Man in the Red Mask — the master-killer whose nation-wide terror plague was calculated to monopolize all life-giving drugs! The Spider walks through thirty-six breathless, death-strewn hours!
A deeply religious man, Norvell W. Page began infusing his latter Spider stories with undercurrents of a strange spiritual quest. A Tibetan monk became a recurring character, issuing prophecies. Psychic phenomenon became a constant theme. Jesus was often evoked. In the 100th novel, Death and The Spider, Wentworth battles the Grim Reaper himself to rescue President Roosevelt. Just when the series couldn’t get any weirder, it ended like a fever breaking.
The Spider magazine folded with the October, 1943 issue, battered and bloodied by the onslaught of the new comic book superheroes, wartime paper shortages which led to wholesale cancellations of pulp magazines, and the tragic death of Norvell W. Page’s first wife, Audrey. He coped by abandoning fiction altogether and becoming a writer for the Office of War Information, later working for Washingtonian entities ranging from the Atomic Energy Commission to various Presidential Commissions. He died in 1961, never imagining that the Spider would birth a weird posterity.
Nick Santa Maria breathes life into the Spider in The Spider and the Slave Doctor. Originally published in The Spider magazine, February, 1941.
