Corey's constant struggle to maintain law and order on the interplanetary frontier was frequently hampered by the villainous likes of Mister Proteus (Marvin Miller), Agent X (Norman Jolley), and Prince Baccaretti (Bela Kovacs), who also answered to the sinister moniker "The Black Falcon." There was also an evildoer on the distaff side named Tonga (Nina Bara), but she proved to be so popular with listeners/viewers that the producers rehabilitated her and made her a member of the Space Patrol team. Corey's other crew members included Major "Robbie" Robertson (Ken Meyer), Dr. Van Meter (Rudolph Anders) and Carol Karlyle (Virginia Hewett), daughter of the secretary general of the United Planets. Carol also served as Corey's would-be squeeze, although the romance was a bit one-sided because, as radio fans have learned, keeping the peace "makes a man watchful...and a little lonely." Also heard on the series as the show's announcer was Dick Tufeld, who achieved later television immortality as the voice of the robot on TV's "Lost in Space" ("Danger! Danger, Will Robinson!")."Space Patrol" was written by Lou Huston and directed by Larry Robertson and, for most of its run (1951-54), was sponsored by Ralston Cereals, which offered a tantalizing series of premiums tailor-made for the show's young fan base - goodies like the Space-O-Phone - "sounds just like a walkie-talkie...looks just like the space-o-phone Buzz Corey himself uses!" Ralston's sponsorship of the show resulted in what could very well be called the crème de la crème of all premiums: a one ton, 30 foot space ship dubbed "The Ralston Rocket" that toured America before finally being awarded to a lucky fan.

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 Arthur Leo Zagat, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format. $2.99.
Fighting Aces was the youngest in the line of Popular Publications aviation pulps. It was strictly a product of World War II. The inaugural issue was published with a March 1940 date on the cover, as the world war was raging through Europe. After D-Day and the war began winding down, the pulp was closed down as well. After twenty-seven issues, the July 1944 magazine was the last one published. But during those glorious twenty-seven issues, American doughboys fought alongside the French, English, Australian and Canadian Allies in battle after aerial battle... pitting their skill against the Nazi scum. Fighter planes burst into flame and spiral to earth in these WWII tales of soaring action. Fighting Aces return in vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format. $2.99.
