Web Links

I created this Spider site, and kept it going all these years (ten years!?), because of the surprising lack of material on the web about one of the top heroes in the Pulp pantheon. But that doesn't mean NO ONE ELSE cares. Here's a list of dedicated Pulp enthusiasts on the web.

Spider Pages

The Spider's Web Page
This tribute has been around almost as long as mine has. Definitely worth a read! The only other site that covers both the pulps and serials.
Tomi Vaisala's The Spider
Probably the longest running page about The Spider. How old? Well, I know it predates my original site's 3D logo, which Tomi has adopted as his own.
ThePulp.Net: The Spider
ThePulp.Net is the ultimate online resource for Pulp links and information. Heck, I made sure *I* checked his page of links before writing this one.
Dr. Hermes Spider Reviews
Dr. Hermes writes all kinds of reviews of genre movies and books! His series of Spider reviews (over 25 as of this wrting) is still going strong! He also reviews the Spider serials.
El Araña
The definitive -- okay, ONLY -- page on the Argeninian reprints of The Spider magazine stories. Part of a larger spanish-language site about Los Pulps.

Spider Sellers

Bold Venture Press
Publisher Rich Harvey carefully retypsets The Spider novels in the original two-column pulp format with the original art, for a polished reprint package. He also hosts Pulp conventions in New Jersey!
