The Spider

From October 1933 to December, 1943, in 118 episodes in total, six writers using the pen name of Grant Stockbridge, primarily Norvell Page, would keep America spellbound with the epic battles Richard Wentworth as the Spider waged each month.

The Spider strikes terror into the hearts of the most hardened criminals. He is proficient and unswerving, and deals swift justice, to those who prey upon the innocent. The Spider's trademark, stamped on the foreheads of those upon whom he has passed judgment, is a sinister warning to all denizens of the Underworld of his wraith--a hideous, blood red spider!

We have a number of out of print The Spider Pulp Reprints for sale at the Vintage Library Attic.

Originally, when the first research was being done on the character pulps, Norvell Page was given credit for all of the novels that appeared in the Spider pulp under the name Grant Stockbridge, with the first two novels in the series being written by R.T.M. Scott. Page's identity as author was no major secret as it was listed in numerous writing digests and Henry Steeger had even written to several pulp fanzines mentioning Page as the Spider author.
