''US pulp magazine; three bimonthly issues, Nov 1949 - Mar 1950, published by Recreational Reading Corp., Indiana, ed (anonymously) by Alden H. Norton. Each issue contained a novel written by prolific pulp author G.T. Fleming-Roberts. As a result of a radiation overdose, Captain Zero (alias ''The Master of Midnight'') becomes involuntarily invisible at night; he uses his unwanted gift to operate against the underworld. When invisible he speaks in italics. This, the last of the hero pulps, was closer to detective fiction than sf'' (Malcolm J. Edwards & Frank H. Parnell/Encyclopedia of SF).
