    Strange Detective Mysteries premiered in October of 1937. After two issues, it changed its title - and its focus - to Captain Satan. It featured a crime-fighting hero much in the style of Robin Hood or The Saint, who robbed from the crooks - a grim, hard vigilante of justice. By day, he was wealthy Cary Adair. By night, Captain Satan! Assisted by a dozen aides, none of whom knew the identities of the others, this scourge of the underworld brought terror to all men of evil.

    For our latest Spider audiobook, we've jumped ahead in time to 1939 and one of the most dramatic and horrific exploits of Richard Wentworth's nightmarish career. "Exploits" might not be the operative term for Claws of the Golden Dragon. It's actually one of the most intense ordeals the Master of Men ever endured in his decade-long career as a crime hunter. And that's saying a hell of a lot!

    The Captain Future stories were not only populated with magnificent characters, but they were also set in a wild, imaginative, almost psychedelic universe. Edmond Hamilton built worlds and star systems that in many ways completely disregarded what the public knew to be true about outer space, but they did not care. Nearly every planet in our solar system could support life, and danger lurked there, too. Although the original stories took place amongst familiar planets, Hamilton would take fans far beyond anything familiar in later tales.

    Among fans of classic pulp fiction, aficionados of supernatural stories consider Popular Publications' Terror Tales, the magazine, for people who found the Lovecraftian stories in Weird Tales too tame and Universal's classic monsters too Hollywood! Between 1934 and 1941, Terror Tales and its legion of unholy authors spewed forth an unremitting litany of horror, terror, torment, and torture - all directed at ordinary American couples faced with supernatural menaces torn from their deepest, darkest nightmares. Think Scream during the Great Depression.

    We thought: If customers like this brand of retro-horror so much, why not go back to the dark well from which it all sprang? That meant Dime Mystery Magazine, the pulp that started the Weird Menace sub-genre back around Halloween of the horrific year of 1933. Since we were planning on celebrating the 80th anniversary of Popular Publication's G-8 And His Battles Aces and The Spider during this autumnal epoch, why not do the same for their sister publication?
