A Complete SPICY DETECTIVE Story by Norvell Page


Norvell Page is best known these days as man who wrote most of the classic pulp adventures of The Spider. His Spider prose has a fervor that grabs you by the throat and won't let go until the final page.

Tomorrow we'll take a look at the newest Norvell Page collection from Black Dog Books, a series of very Spideresque stories called City of Corpses. So as sort of a warm-up, just to get you in a Page frame of mind, here's a tale from the April 1937 issue of Spicy Detective. Page often used the monicker N. Wooten Poge when writing for the Spicy line. Please click on each page to SUPERSIZE.

Evan, you are the man! I don't think I've ever seen this one, and I love Page's manic style.
