If you're a fan of old "hero" pulp novels of the 1930s & 1940s and you'd like to read them but you're visually impaired, RadioArchives.com has something for you. Besides putting out old radio shows on CD, Radio Archives have now released adaptations of pulp novels starring such characters as Doc Savage, The Spider, Secret Agent X and Doctor Death as audiobook on compact disc. A listing of the ones they've produced so far can be found here.
Not only that, but Radio Archives has also made more pulp stories avaiable as eBooks (click here) which (if you're hearing impaired) you can download to your eReader device according to whichever format (Kindle, Nook, etc.) you prefer.
