Airship 27 Productions is excited to announce the release of their first ever Domino Lady anthology.  “The question I’m always asked is, when are you going to do a Domino Lady book?” says Managing Editor Ron Fortier.  “Truth is, we had one half done several years ago but through a series of bizarre setbacks, it ended up being finished and released by another publisher.  Getting a new Domino Lady book done under our own imprint has a personal goal of mine ever since.”

The Domino Lady first appeared in the pulps in 1936.  After graduating from the Berkeley College in California, Ellen Patrick goes off to Europe on a joy filled jaunt.  Her trip is cut short when her widowed father, D.A. Owen Patrick is murdered by gangsters.  Upon her return home she learns the corrupt authorities have no intention of finding her father’s killers. Thus she puts on a domino mask and a backless white dress to avenge him.  Though arming herself with a small .22 automatic and a syringe full of knockout serum, the Domino Lady’s most effective weapon was her sensual beauty, which often distracted her opponents until she could turn the tables on them.

Now new pulp writers, Greg Hatcher, Gene Moyers, Tim Bruckner and Kevin Findley offer up four brand new adventures of Los Angeles’ most notorious, and sexiest, crime-fighter of them all, the Domino Lady!

“Of course you can’t do a Domino Lady book without recruiting the best artists available,” Fortier continues.  “And that’s exactly what we did.”  Well known comic pro, James Lyle, provides twelve gorgeous black and interior illustrations and graphic artist Ted Hammond, known for his amazing pin-up work, produced the stunning cover that graces the cover.  All of which was then perfectly assembled by Art Director Rob Davis to create a truly beautiful package no real pulp lover should do without.


Available now at Amazon and soon on Kindle.

SNAKE - Nest of Vipers


Airship 27 Productions is proud to present the latest pulp thriller by Oklahoma based, award winning writer, Michael Vance: SNAKE : NEST OF VIPERS!

In the last few years of World War II, a group of brave Germans who opposed Hitler and his Third Reich orchestrated an underground movement that worked from within to defeat the Nazis.  These brave men and women were constantly at risk being hunted by the ruthless Gestapo.  Their fate, if captured, was agonizing torture and death.  Still they struggled on.

Six years later, in the back alleys of New York’s Bowery district, a mysterious masked avenger calling herself the Snake appears.  She recruits denizens of the street to be her agents and begins a ruthless campaign against organized crime.  Who is she and what is her connection to the events in Berlin prior to the collapse of the Third Reich?

“Michael Vance is one of the finest genre writers working today,” says Airship 27 Productions Managing Editor, Ron Fortier.  “His Weird Horror Tales trilogy received critical acclaim and last year we published his YOUNG NEMO & THE BLACK KNIGHTS, a novelization of his own comicbook series.  This time he has uncovered a lost comicbook nugget and what he has done with it is going to excite a whole lot of people.”

Based on a six-page synopsis by legendary comics writer, Richard Hughes, author Michael Vance has woven a thrilling, fast paced adventure that will keep readers guessing and on the edge of their seats from start to finish.  You’ve never met a character like the Snake.  She’s sexy.  She maybe crazy.  But she is most of all, deadly!

SNAKE : NEST OF VIPERS features a stunning cover by comicbook and pin-up star, Ted Hammond with interior illustrations by newcomer Greg Keyzer with book design by Rob Davis.
