Early pulp novel featuring The Spider. The writer was still wrestling with the best approach to take with the character. The plot was pedestrian compared to future stories. This book was notable for introducing the recurring character of Marianne Harcourt.

a facsimile edition of The Spider magazine complete with ads, personals, and a letters column.
Endlessly fascinating look at life in the 1940s.
