Summary

Samuel Butler's prose translation. According to Wikipedia: "Homer is a legendary ancient Greek epic poet, traditionally said to be the author of the epic poems the Iliad and the Odyssey. The ancient Greeks generally believed that Homer was a historical individual, but modern scholars are skeptical: no reliable biographical information has been handed down from classical antiquity, and the poems themselves manifestly represent the culmination of many centuries of oral story-telling and a well-developed "formulaic" system of poetic composition."

    His purpose was to control America’s vast resources, so that he might sell them to Europe’s highest-bidding war monger for fabulous millions. So powerful were his weapons: induced insanity, living cholera bacteria, a hideous hypnosis... that all who opposed him became his vassals — until Richard Wentworth in the guise of the Spider risked all he held dear in the grimmest battle of his crime-fighting life! Follow the Spider, Master of Men, as he dodges gangland guns and police bullets in another roller coaster ride of an adventure! The Spider and the War Emperor is torn from the pages of the May, 1940 issue of The Spider Magazine.

    Her poems describe descending sledding hills, climbing mountains, and playing in fields and fairgrounds. They also profoundly cast light 'both with humor and serious faith' on the dark hours of staying up with a sick child and sitting in the ER with an aging loved one. The pages speak of joy in first kisses, last words, and hearing the words of an autistic child. Those who read this book will be reminded how childlike faith and wishes grow into adult conviction and hope.

When there really did seem to be more stars in Hollywood than in Heaven Hollywood Stage had them performing films as radio plays – on the sponsors dime of course.  Classic films now become audiobooks with many featuring the original stars from way back when. Here's The Phantom Lady starring Brian Aherne & Ella Raines.
