In addition to nineteen original broadcasts from 1945 and 1946, this collection concludes with a real rarity: "The Mystic Knights of the Sea Minstrel Show," a mid-1930s attempt to present the characters of "Amos 'n' Andy" in a weekly prime-time slot. The effort was very short-lived, primarily because Gosden and Correll disliked the notion of presenting their characters in the context of a minstrel show, "minstrelsy" being the sort of dated and 19th century concept that the team knew their black listeners might quickly grow to resent. Taken from a worn aircheck found in Charles Correll's library, it is one of only two examples of the series known to exist and, though the audio quality is rather rough, we think that the historic value of the program alone merits its inclusion here. 10 hours.

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 Harrison Storm and Russell Gray reissued for today’s readers in electronic format. $2.99.
One by one the Eight Frightened Bachelors met violent deaths, meted out by a merciless ring of midnight murderers... that could be challenged only by the fabulous Captain Zero, whose strange, eerie gift was at once a double-edged weapon of deliverance — and of destruction! Captain Zero premiered in November 1949, and had the dubious distinction of being the last of the single-character hero pulps. Captain Zero was a fabulous character whose strange and deadly career began each midnight at the stroke of twelve — and ended each gray dawn with the first rays of the sun. During those few hours, he became completely invisible! But even that wonderous feat wasn't enough to save the pulp magazine. It ended after only three issues. Now, once again, you will experience the reading thrills in the adventures of this amazing, yet compellingly human, character of fiction... the Master of Midnight, Captain Zero... as he returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format. $2.99.
