The Ghost, Spring, 1940
by G.T. Fleming-Roberts
(as George Chance) Author of “Calling the Ghost”

Follow the Super-Detective as He Tackles the Perilous and Baffling Case of the Prophesies of Death!

Meet—The Ghost
IN the last issue of THE GHOST George Chance made his bow. We are happy now to present his second memoir, THE GHOST STRIKES BACK, in which his courage, cleverness and skill continue to shine brightly in spite of his innate modesty.
George Chance, writing about himself, does not brag about his attainments in the twin fields which he has combined and made his own—-criminology and magic. But he cannot stop us from bragging about HIM. He cannot stop us from saying, for example, that he ranks at the top of his profession—the profession once graced by the great Harry Houdini, master of escape technique. It was thought that no one would ever equal the great Houdini, but that was before the time of George Chance.
So we repeat that in employing his magical talents in his crime-fighting role of THE GHOST, he has perhaps done more in the service of the Law than any other crusader for justice. Small wonder that criminals quake at the prospect of tangling with THE GHOST— master of the science of criminology, remorseless crime-tracker and criminal-catcher. When THE GHOST walks, the underworld stirs into deadly life to combat him.
Remember these things when you read this and future memoirs of George Chance. You see, this modest, kindly, humorous magician is a far bigger man than he makes himself out to be. He won't say so himself. That's why we're once again saying it for him.—THE EDITOR.
