The Red Finger Pulp Mystery Megapack

12 Tales of the Masked Hero

Arthur Leo Zagat (Author)

12 tales of the masked hero, as he smashes his way through spy-rings and other fiendish plots to destroy America!


In the spy vs. spy world of the late 1930s, this masked hero prowled the underworld, dressed in an “amorphous fluttering black robe, bat-like, [with] a gray-masked head through whose twin eye-slits menace glinted.” But it was not so much the costume as the “hand, ebony-black in its glove–but for the finger curled around the trigger of that gun. That finger was not black but vividly, awesomely scarlet.” (From “Caged Horror.”) Powerful stuff in those days!

A note to the culturally sensitive: Some of these stories contain elements of “yellow peril” racism. This series originally appeared in the Operator #5 pulp magazine between 1934 and 1938. They are products of their era and are definitely NOT politically correct by today’s standards. You have been warned!
