Gunsmoke
Volume 17
 
 
Around Dodge City and in the territory on west -- there’s just one way to handle the killers and the spoilers -- and that’s with a U.S. Marshall and the smell of “Gunsmoke”! “Gunsmoke” starring William Conrad. The story of the violence that moved west with young America -- and the story of a man who moved with it. I’m that man, Matt Dillon, United States Marshall -- the first man they look for and the last they want to meet. It’s a chancy job -- and it makes a man watchful...and a little lonely.
 
William Conrad contributed more than just his stunning performance as Matt Dillon to Gunsmoke. The most experienced radio actor in the company, Conrad often offered his thoughts and suggestions on multiple aspects of the series, including even naming and expanding characters that would become listener favorites.
 
Voiced by Parley Baer, Chester Proudfoot was originally just a nameless townsman that Dillon interacted with on occasion as demanded by the script. “Chester” came into being as a fully fleshed out character in the Gunsmoke radio series when Baer acting on that impulse some actors occasionally have about their characters, ad-libbed the name “Chester” during a take. Baer’s ad-libbing almost ended up on the cutting room floor until William Conrad intervened on “Chester’s” behalf. Conrad’s vast experience as a radio actor, narrator, and even on occasion, director played a vital role in Gunsmoke’s success on the radio. Conrad voiced his support to Baer’s naming of his unidentified “Townsman” character and fleshing out his background.
 
Conrad also gave Doc Adams his name. He was a bit playful in naming Doc – who was at first a grumpy, kind of grim and dark character with a mysterious past. As a fan of the cartoonist Charles Addams, Conrad gave the still unnamed town doctor the surname of Adams as a wink and a nod towards the ghoulishness of The Addams Family.

The Spider and the Jewels of Hell
by Norvell W. Page writing as Grant Stockbridge
Read by Nick Santa Maria
 
 
Tough and dauntless were Colorado’s mining sons. But these hardy men were helpless in terror as their homes were destroyed, their loved ones mangled and slaughtered by The Killer — a crime colossus who sought to cripple America by seizing her most priceless assets! Fight beside the gallant Spider as he plunges into the depths of the earth — to battle the termites of hell!
 
Norvell W. Page churned out Spider sagas for three white-hot years, then dropped from sight in the middle of the four-part Living Pharaoh series, not to return until 1937.
 
No one today can say exactly what happened. But rumors suggest a nervous breakdown of some kind. God knows, you could see it coming in his alter ego, Richard Wentworth....
 
Other writers stepped in to take up the slack. But Norvell W. Page refused to remain out of action for long. Like the Spider, his inborn sense of duty compelled him to return, where lesser writers who were his contemporaries, were falling by the wayside trying to keep up with the deadline demands of the Spider’s pulpy competition.
 
“There was a time when the burden of writing yet one more Spider seemed too much to undertake,” Page subsequently wrote. “But I never feel that way anymore. I know now that the Spider actually does help people; that there are those who appreciate his idealism even though it is expressed in violence.”
 
Once more,the incomparable Nick Santa Maria reads another thrilling Spider exploit. The Spider and the Jewels of Hell originally published in The Spider magazine, December, 1940.

The Doom Director
by G. T. Fleming-Roberts writing as Brant House
Read by Milton Bagby
 
 
His true face unknown, his identity forever buried in a secret government file, Secret Agent “X” came back from the dead to take on the sinister sadists and evil extortionists who prey on innocent Americans. A master of disguise who carries a non-lethal gas gun, “X” the unknown is backed by a cabal of wealthy citizens and is answerable only to the shadowy K-9 in Washington.
 
Invisible doom came to change the living into strangled, purple-faced gallows corpses. And Agent “X”’s cunning inventions and courage were falling before the wile of a fear-mad killer, who could send his unseen death to Sing Sing in time to cheat even the electric chair.
 
The enigma of enigmas, Secret Agent “X” has been deputized by a high government official to battle the darkest, most diabolical enemies of America before they sink their poisonous fangs into the nation’s healthy core. Faceless and unsung, “X” infiltrates these threats in a bewildering array of disguises.
 
Operating out of the supposedly haunted Montgomery Mansion, Secret Agent “X” ventures forth in a bewildering array of false identities to infiltrate the darkest underbelly of the underworld—and destroy it from within. A master investigator of a thousand guises and surprises. The only clue to his true identity is his haunting whistle…..
 
Secret Agent “X”s true role as a crimefighter was kept from most people. Only a select few, including reporter Betty Dale and his mysterious handler, K-9, were truly aware of “X”’s mission against evil.
 
Though Paul Chadwick was the creator of Secret Agent “X”, other well known Pulp writers also added their own contributions to the canon. All writing under the “Brant House name”, G. T. Fleming-Roberts, Emile C. Tepperman, and Wayne Rogers wrote Secret Agent “X” tales as well over the 41 story run.
 
Follow the Man of a Thousand Faces as he confronts the menace of The Doom Director, ripped from the pages of Secret Agent “X” magazine, August 1936 and read with chilling intensity by Milton Bagby.

Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow knows! Lamont Cranston takes center stage in three classic pulp novels by Walter B.

Then, a “Guardian of Death” protects a crypt’s incredible secret until it’s unearthed by The Shadow! Finally, Lamont Cranston goes undercover in a big city hospital to clear a physician falsely accused of committing “Murders in White.” This triple-novel special leads off with a knockout color pulp cover by George Rozen and also showcases the original interior illustrations by Tom Lovell, Paul Orban and Edd Cartier and historical commentary by Will Murray.

Comments From Our Customers!

Charles Wullenjohn writes:
Gunsmoke is a great radio series that makes miles in the car fly by. All episodes are consistently of high quality. Radio Archives does an excellent job at ensuring audio excellence.
 
Michael Klein writes:
I'd like to add that I simply love the "X" series and happy to see you offer a profuse number of titles from the golden age of pulp fiction. I'll be purchasing many more of these and other titles and want to thank you for making this great stuff available again! I'm especially pleased that time was taken to put the texts into an e-book format. Your competitors simply reproduce these periodicals in the simple PDF format, which is very unwieldy, extremely hard on the eyes, and unresponsive to tools available on my Kindle, such as the dictionary and text change functions, for example.
