There's a trio of new QP transcripts in the "Scripts" section of the message board: "Camera Obscura," "If I Should Wake Before I Die," and "A Night to Forget."

There's also two transcripts of "Lights Out" episodes with Cooper scripts: "Death Robbery" and "The Coffin in Studio B." "Coffin" is sort of hidden -- it's in the same thread as "A Night to Forget." The episodes were broadcast in the 1940s but I'm guessing that the scripts were written during Cooper's stint as the series writer-director from 1934 to '36.

"Death Robbery," broadcast from California a few weeks after QP debuted in New York, is credited to Cooper and someone named Paul Pierce. Anybody know anything about this collaboration?

Three more transcripts of Cooper's non-QP radio material are online. Coincidentally, they're all about husbands with wife trouble.

"Reunion After Death" (from Lights Out!), which has a few things in common with QP's "The Evening and the Morning," is about a bereaved widower who believes he has doomed his dead wife to haunt a dark cemetery for eternity:

"Man in the Middle" (a.k.a. "After Five O'Clock" -- also from Lights Out!) is an interesting experiment in stream-of-consciousness narration about a businessman who cheats on his wife with his secretary while his subconscious mind haunts his every move:

Cooper's 1944 adaptation of the Broadway play "Redemption" (based on Tolstoy's "The Living Corpse") from the prestige anthology series "Arthur Hopkins Presents" is about a free-spirited alcoholic who leaves his wife, lives among the gypsies, and fakes his own death:
