The Dancing Doll Murders
by Robert Wallace
Read by Milton Bagby
 
 
Forged in war, The Phantom Detective wages a one-man battle on crime! Solving impossible mysteries and delivering his own justice, he is the underworld's masked nightmare!
 
Waxen manikins leer vicious death threats at the command of a diabolical dealer in murder who employs all his evil arts to war against the keen-witted Phantom, man of a thousand faces!
 
With the end of his magazine in 1953, The Phantom Detective seemed to drop out of circulation literally and out of the minds of fans, yet his long-lasting impact can't be denied, coming from two conventions within his twenty year run of stories. The only person to know The Phantom Detective's true identity was Frank Havens. Keeper of this knowledge since the first story, Havens, as publisher of the city's newspaper, often assisted The Phantom Detective with his cases, even acting as the one requesting his unique help, often at the behest of law enforcement. To summon the masked man, Havens had a red light installed atop the Clarion Building, one that would shine when the Phantom Detective was needed. This is definitely a precursor and most likely the inspiration for a much more famous signal that debuted in comics years later. It isn't really a leap to connect Batman's Bat Signal to the Phantom's Clarion beacon. Two of the editors in the early days of Batman actually cut their teeth editing The Phantom Detective.
 
Another impact, one that was more immediate on some of his Pulp counterparts, like The Spider, was the fact that The Phantom Detective carried a calling card of sorts as an identifier. To prove he was in fact the real Phantom Detective, he would show a badge of platinum fashioned into the shape of a domino mask. These seemingly simple concepts show the Phantom Detective's long-term effect on heroic fiction.
 
'The Dancing Doll Murders' was originally published in the June 1937 issue of The Phantom Detective Magazine and is read with pulse pounding intensity by award winning voice actor Milton Bagby.

The Hand of Steel
by Robert J. Hogan
Read by Nick Santa Maria
 
 
They called G-8 the Flying Spy. History never recorded his exploits—and for good reason! No one would ever believe World War I was that wild!
 
There is blood on the hook of The Hand of Steel that cuts its red path across the skies, and casts the shadow of Death upon the wings of the Master Spy! Out of the fires of war, fed by the blood and hatred of destruction, comes the Cripple of Hartsburg! What is the curse be has placed on the head of the Allies? — what mad vengeance is sought by his distorted brain? Only G-8 can learn the answer; and to find it he must search the hungry jaws of death!
 
Normally, pulp publishers put house names on series that might seem risky, or to make sure they were not stymied by unreliable authors. But Robert J. Hogan's byline was pure pulp gold, so Popular Publications' Harry Steeger took a chance. The series would carry the author's true name for every single story, 110 in total. Hogan never let him down.
 
Before it was all over, G-8 battled weird menaces ranging from Martians to Zombies, with assorted undead minions of the Kaiser in between. If Hogan couldn't concoct a fresh beast-man, a clutch of cave men or freshly-defrosted Viking berserkers would keep readers riveted. Recurring foes came and went. G-8 finally vanquished Herr Doktor Krueger late in the series. Or did he? Readers would never know, as Hogan kept G-8's adventures exclusively set in World War One until the series' end in 1944.
 
Through it all, Robert J. Hogan never seemed ashamed to have his Christian name attached to effusions bearing overblown titles like 'The Flying Coffins of the Damned'. And he a minister's son.
 
Nick Santa Maria brings G-8, Nippy and Bull to thrilling life in their desperate struggle to defeat a deadly nemesis unlike anything they have ever before encountered in 'The Hand of Steel'. Originally published in the October 1937 issue of G-8 and His Battle Aces magazine.
 
Nick DeGregorio composed the music for the G-8 and His Battle Aces series of audiobooks.

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.
 
G-8 and his Battle Aces rode the nostalgia boom ten years after World War I ended. These high-flying exploits were tall tales of a World War that might have been, featuring monster bats, German zombies, wolf-men, harpies, Martians, and even tentacled floating monsters. Most of these monstrosities were the work of Germany’s seemingly endless supply of mad scientists, chief of whom was G-8’s recurring Nemesis, Herr Doktor Krueger. G-8 battled Germany’s Halloween shock troops for over a decade, not ceasing until the magazine folded in the middle of World War II. G-8 and his Battle Aces return in vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.

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.
 
Thrilling Mystery magazine came from Thrilling Publications, who also produced titles such as Thrilling Wonder Stories, Thrilling Adventures, Thrilling Western, Thrilling Sports, Thrilling Love, Thrilling Baseball, Thrilling Detective, Thrilling Ranch, Thrilling Sports. They also published a number of pulp magazines without "Thrilling" in the title, such as Captain Future, The Black Bat, The Green Ghost and the Phantom Detective.
 
Thrilling Mystery made its debut in October 1935 as a weird menace publication, following the success of other magazines like Dime Mystery and Terror Tales. As public tastes changed, so did the magazine, gradually phasing out the weird menace angle, and becoming a conventional mystery magazine. With the winter 1945 issue, the title changed to Thrilling Mystery Novel Magazine. In the summer of 1947 it became Detective Mystery Novel Magazine, and finally in the winter of 1949 issue, the title became 2 Detective Mystery Novels Magazine. It was a long-lived pulp magazine that published its last issue in the winter of 1951. Thrilling Mystery returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.
