The Spider #10 eBook

July 1934
by Norvell W. Page writing as Grant Stockbridge

Total Pulp Experience. These exciting pulp adventures have been beautifully reformatted for easy reading as an eBook and features every story, every editorial, and every column of the original pulp magazine. As a special bonus, Will Murray has written an introduction especially for this series of eBooks.


Another epic exploit of America’s best-loved pulp-fiction character of the 1930s and 1940s: The Spider — Master of Men! Richard Wentworth — the dread Spider, nemesis of the Underworld, lone wolf anti-crime crusader who always fights in that grim no-man’s land between Law and lawless — returns in vintage pulp tales of the Spider, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.

Meet the Spider!

by Will Murray


The Full-Length Feature Novel
The Corpse Cargo
by Norvell W. Page writing as Grant Stockbridge
A lurching skid, grinding tires — a resounding crash. And Richard Wentworth, hastening to investigate the wreck of the car he had been pursuing, found all its occupants dead — electrocuted before the moment of collision! Within a week the passengers of a crack New York Central train met a similar fate. Go with the Spider as he rides alone — human bait in a speeding death trap — on one of the nation’s doomed trains. Pierce with him the far-flung, gun-bristling cordon of an aroused Underworld — as he fights to save a hundred thousand Yankee lives!
The Murder Torch — A Doc-Turner Story
by Arthur Leo Zagat
Doc Turner, suffering for each new death at the hands of the Morris Street fire-bug, vowed that he who lit the murder torch must die!
Police Escort — A Short Story
by Wyatt Blassingame
Will Pride, daring the dread power which was spreading throughout his city, found that his life hung actually on the ticking of a clock!
The Web — A Department
by Inspector Leslie T. White
Armament for America’s fighting legions — in their war against crime.

5 of 5 Terrific! November 7, 2019
Reviewer: Spider Fan from Arizona  
My favorite Spider story so far has been "Citadel of Hell." In it, the Spider saves the life of an innocent; that person then saves the Spider's life and is given a ring with instructions: "If you ever need help, send this ring to Commissioner Kirkpatrick and I'll come." I wondered if we'd get that follow-up story.

Well, this is it! And what a doozy! Great action, a diabolical villain, and a plot that doesn't pull punches. A total rollercoaster ride.

5 of 5 WOW! December 4, 2012
Reviewer: Andrew Salmon from Vancouver, BC Canada  
When I first dove into the Corpse Cargo I did not have high hopes. Giving Wentworth a boy sidekick did not look like a great idea. Then I finished the first couple of chapters during which a sadistic gang of modern day pirates torture the boy's friends, carving a skull and crossbones into the chest of one.

Heavy stuff.

The action is heavy in this one, savage, unwavering and the pirates, led by a beautiful and deadly sociopath are some of the most hideous villains the Spider has ever faced. This group has harnessed electricity and are using it to simply electrify passing trains and planes, then looting the corpses. The pirates' raid on one train load full of people is one of the best sustained action sequences in the history of pulp fiction, new or old.

This one also sees the Spider and his love, Nita, faced with deadly decisions and no chance of escape. The action is heavy here, the emotions run high and you will be on the edge of your seat.

My highest recommendation.
