Zerna (THE FROZEN FORMULA) and the underworld, it's imperative for him to locate and rescue the
girl. For Betty Dale is more precious to him than anything in the world. If

The Soul Stealers

THE SOUL STEALERS by Tom Johnson: I’ve often been asked why does God allow good people to die horrible deaths, and I wanted to answer that question as best I could in this book. Angels have walked among mankind since the dawn of civilization. Although we may not recognize them, or even see their presence, they are always with us. Perhaps they whisper advice in our dreams, or guide our governments without their knowledge, angels are moving us towards a higher good. Some even protect us in our final day, when violent death reaches out for our very soul - these are the Soul Sealers! Here are eleven episodic tales of violent death, and the angelic encounters assisting in the crossing over. Paperback versions may be purchased from the author at $14.00 post paid (US), and is available on Amazon Kindle for $2.99 at http://www.amazon.com/SOUL-STEALERS-Tom-Johnson-ebook/dp/B00785HSQY/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1445863125&sr=1-1&keywords=the+soul+stealers+by+tom+johnson

The Black Bat's War

THE BLACK BAT’S WAR by Tom Johnson. In the trenches of war-torn Germany, soldiers were dying from the medicines they received for their wounds. The Army generals blamed America for the bad drugs, yet nothing could be done until the source of the deadly medicine was uncovered and replaced with good drugs. While investigators are stymied, The Black Bat and his team of crime fighters take up the challenge in New York, uncovering a giant plot by a master criminal. But would they be in time to save brave young soldiers dying of their wounds in a far off No-Man’s Land?

“Midnight, the witching hour when the night is darkest, our fears the strongest, and our strength at its lowest ebb. Midnight, when the graves gape open and death strikes.”
Murder at Midnight was a thirty minute show, featuring macabre tales of suspense, often with a supernatural twist.
In 1946, Louis G. Cowan, Inc., a transcribed programming house began creating a series of crime fiction dramas slotted for late night listening. It had one of the higher production and cast costs for syndicated programming for that time. Directed by Anton M. Leder and produced by Louis G. Cowan. The host was Raymond Morgan, who delivered the memorable lines of introduction over Charles Paul’s effective organ theme.
Featuring tales of the supernatural and the macabre by radio's top writers and stars. The writers included Robert Newman, Joseph Ruscoll, Max Ehrlich, Betty Caine, Carl Frank, Sigmund Miller, Winifred Wolfe, Jay Williams, Barry Hopkins, Lawson Zerbe, William Norwood, Abram S. Guiness, and Leon Meadow.
Actors included Alan Hewett, Ann Shephard, Barry Hopkins, Barry Kroeger, Betty Caine, Brad Barker, Carl Emory, Carl Frank, Charlotte Holland, Craig McDonnell, Elspeth Eric, Eric Dressler, Fess Johnson, Frank Behrens, Helen Shields, James Van Dyke, John Griggs, John Sylvester, Karl Swenson, Lawson Zerbie, Mercedes McCambridge, Paul Mann, Ruth Yorke, Vinton Hayworth, Walter Vaughn, Wendell Holmes, and William Quinn
The series is known to have started as early as April 19, 1946. Murder At Midnight was issued by several transcriptions services, and the show titles and show numbers were different on them. The shows in Radio Archives, Murder at Midnight, Volume 1 set came from a set of MacGregor and Ingram disks and the show numbers are taken from the disks themselves. Being syndicated, stations could broadcast the programs in any sequence, on any day of the week.

Read by Nick Santa Maria
In a hundred thousand homes, families sat down together at the supper table. A few hours later, those persons were dead — killed by poison in canned foods! Thousands of women used cosmetics, and acid made their faces forever hideously scarred. A master criminal, daring and clever, was ruthlessly slaughtering Americans to win immense illicit profits for himself. Only one man was powerful enough and wise enough to stop this wholesale murder — Richard Wentworth, champion of oppressed humanity, better known as the Spider. And the Spider was engaged in the bitterest battle of his career, fighting the Avenger, a false, wily crusader who was determined to destroy him!
Norvell W. Page, writing under the pseudonym of Grant Stockbridge, Page remade the Spider into his own psychic twin, often dressing up as the Master of Men when delivering his monthly manuscripts.
In a letter to a Spider fan, Page wrote, “Think of me as Wentworth, if you will. The line between us is not too distinct.”
Page took Spider readers on a roller-coaster ride of wild action and fevered emotion unlike anything ever published before or since. Once he got going, Page painted a portrait of a tortured superhero, one much more emblematic of the 21st century than of the Great Depression.
For Richard Wentworth saw himself as a man on a holy mission, a self-appointed messiah with a martyr complex. A Christ covered in cobwebs. He was the champion of oppressed humanity, its shield and protector against the murderous outbreaks of the Underworld; wherever crime struck terribly, that way he hastened, taking up the challenge. The police had offered rewards totaling thousands of dollars for his capture “dead or alive.” And the Underworld hated him, and plotted his destruction with a fierceness bred of abject terror.
Nick Santa Maria breathes life into the Spider in The Pain Emperor. Originally published in The Spider magazine, February, 1935.
