US Pulp magazine, one issue, April 1939, published by Popular Publications; edited by Ejler and Edith Jakobsson. The Scorpion was in every respect a sequel to The Octopus, only the alias of the villainous protagonist being changed. The sadistic, borderline-sf feature novel, "Satan's Incubator" by Randolph Craig (Norvell W Page), was reprinted by Robert E Weinberg as Pulp Classics #12: The Scorpion (1976 chap), whilst the entire issue was reprinted complete by Girasol in 2005.
