The maddest of the mad scientists - Doctor Death - starred in his own bizarre pulp magazine in early 1935. He consorted with demons, elementals, zombies, disinterred mummies, and other unclean denizens of Hell. Standing against him were the Secret 12, a band of the top U.S. civil and business leaders, headed by Jimmy Holm, a millionaire criminologist and occultist. One of the rare unabashedly supernatural series the pulps ever produced, Doctor Death returns in vintage pulp tales, reissued for today's listeners.
"The Shriveling Murders", by Harold Ward, writing as Zorro: Giants shrivel to doll-size in Death's most horrible scientific coup! Washington is about to collapse! Jimmy Holm uses the sinister scientist's own gory weapons to battle the learned monster. This saturnalia of science is filled with bloodshed and terror.
