Stunned, lost, the remnants of a once proud army charge unchallenged against an unseen foe — to die without being fired upon! And roaring across death-filled skies, G-8 and his Battle Aces gamble against fearful odds to come to grips with War’s most sinister phantom of doom — who has sworn to turn a mighty fortress into the funeral pyre of an Empire! 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. $2.99.
In 1934 a new type of magazine was born. Known by various names — the shudder pulps, mystery-terror magazines, horror-terror magazines — weird menace is the sub-genre term that has survived today. Dime Mystery Magazine was one of the most popular. It came from Popular Publications, whose publisher Harry Steeger was inspired by the Grand Guignol theater of Paris. This breed of pulp story survived less than ten years, but in that time, they became infamous, even to this day. This ebook contains a collection of stories from the pages of Dime Mystery Magazine, all written by Norvell W. Page, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format. $2.99.

Pulp fiction’s Master of Men returns in two classic stories from 1935 and 1938. First, in “Reign of the Death Fiddler”, high-ranking citizens are being slaughtered, major businesses robbed, and The Spider meets one of his most illusive foes. Who is this maestro of evil? Will there be a finale to this orchestrated insanity? And can The Spider strip away the layers of this insane mystery? Then, in the “City of Whispering Death”, over New York’s hushed streets, a fearsome muttering is heard, telling men that the time has come to die. Throughout the entire panic-stricken metropolis, no man dares to testify against a single criminal lest he himself be slashed to bloody bits by an invisible death which leaves no clue save a quivering and mutilated corpse. While the Underworld runs riot and the police stand aghast, The Spider lets loose his mightiest effort: a counter reign of terror which strikes at the murder-maniac whose every word is a death sentence and who has coined a fortune out of unclaimed corpses! These two exciting pulp adventures have been beautifully reformatted for easy reading and feature both of the original full color covers as well as interior illustrations to accompany each story. On sale for $12.95, save $2.00

Great news. Thanks for the quick answer and thanks for the great service I’ve gotten whenever I order stuff from Radio Archives.
I am a long time supporter of your web site and have enjoyed not only the quality of the programs but the sound quality of the programming.
I really enjoyed The Black Bat story. I’m looking forward to more of them being issued for the Kindle. I’m a fan of the ‘Pulp’ magazines.
