The Spider eBook 
#6 March 1934

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.

Citadel of Hell

Men fought snarling in the streets over crusts of bread or ferreted, beast-like, through the charred ruins of some once-majestic building in search of food scraps... To such dire state had the city fallen when the Spider, weakened by weeks of illness, returned to take up his seemingly hopeless battle against the Food Destroyers.

5 of 5 The Spider 006 - The Citadel of Hell May 28, 2022
Reviewer: Trash Menace  
The Spider faces a conspiracy of firebugs that threaten to destroy America's food supply.  Not a lot of detection in this one - the first full half of the book is one extended action sequence as the Spider tries to find clues while evading the police, who are after both the Richard Wentworth and the Spider for murder.  He gets close, gets captured by the police, does something clever to escape, his ruse falls through, gets captured by the police, wash, rinse, repeat.

The scale of the menaces the Spider faces has been steadily increasing as the magazine goes on, and by this issue thousands are killed and the entire nation is starving.

Aside from the manic pace, what stands out is massive car chase involving the police, the gang cars, the Spider in a double decker bus, and an absurd amount of firebombs and explosions.

5 of 5 The Best Yet! November 7, 2019
Reviewer: Spider Fan from Arizona  
I was recently introduced to the Spider and have been reading the books in order. I'm having wild fun with these stories, with this being the best one yet. Great non-stop action with heart.

I got a kick out of the scenes between Wentworth and the D.A., Kirkpatrick working with the Spider, and the final scene between Wentworth and Kirkpatrick. Great fun!
