COMANCHE BLOOD

COMANCHE BLOOD

Airship 27 Productions is thrilled to announce the release of the second in writer R.A. Jones’ western series featuring Jason Mankiller. During the Civil War, the young Union soldier had a tattoo painted on his left check; that of blood drops falling from the corner of his eyes.  Since that time, earning his reputation as a bounty hunter, he is known on the Texas frontier as The Man Who Cries Blood. 

In this second tale, Mankiller is on the trail of three vicious Comancheros who have been stirring up trouble between the Comanche and the white settlers of Fort Rogers.  Even though the skilled hunter has the friendship of the notorious half-breed Comanche Chief, Quanah Parker, it is still left to him to find the renegades and prevent more bloodshed.

“When R.A. first approached us about doing this series, we were delighted,” says Airship 27 Productions Managing Editor Ron Fortier. “He wanted to do a straight up, old fashion western adventure. No fantasy elements, no weird western label. Just a classic tale of the old west during the years after the Civil War when America was attempting to heal its wound and rededicate itself to its manifest destiny.”

With the help of interior illustrator Chris Kohler and cover painter, Adam Shaw, writer R.A. Jones once again weaves a thrilled packed adventure set against the backdrop of  the Texas frontier and brings to life the pioneer men and women who crossed a vast wilderness to create a new chapter in American history.  Comanche Blood is a part of their story.

WINGS OF THE GOLDEN DRAGON

Airship 27 Productions is thrilled to present a brand new fantasy adventure novel that is actually the prequel to Ms Doran’s first book, “Claws of the Golden Dragon.”

“We met Barbara Doran at Pulp Fest a few years ago,” recounts Airship 27 Productions Managing Editor, Ron Fortier.  “She was interested in writing New Pulp and we passed along our Submission Guidelines to her.  A few months later we received the manuscript to ‘Claws of the Golden Dragon,’ a terrific book we were only too happy to publish.”

After the success of that initial book, Doran opted to try something different for her second novel.  “Most of the first book takes place in a fictional city on the West Coast,” Fortier continues. “And is populated by some truly wonderful characters, both real and magical. This time Barbara thought it might be fun to go back in time and explore some of their origins.  Thus the inspiration for her new prequel book.”

1930s Shanghai was a place of excitement and intrigue... and magic. It is an international hotspot where foreign agents from around the world ply their trade. Brought to Shanghai to investigate a powerful new aircraft engine, young Conall McLeod becomes embroiled in a high-stakes game between gangs, spies and immortal beings. Together with his beloved Mudan Chang and hot-shot Chinese pilot, Feng Zhanchi, Conall must navigate the dangerous waters of the city's criminal undercurrents and help free a lost immortal from the clutches of evil.

Writer Barbara Doran spins a fantastic tale of action and mystery filled with some of the most memorable characters ever conceived.  Artist Gary Kato returns to offer up nine interior illustrations and Art Director Rob Davis provides the cover to this fast paced fantasy thriller. Whether deep within the cities maze of dark alleys or high atop an ancient castle of evil, no one will be able to escape from The Wings of the Golden Dragon!

THE PICTURE OF INNOCENCE

Airship 27 Productions is proud to present Chuck Miller’s brand new, full length Sherlock Holmes novel, “The Picture of Innocence.”

The year 1885 finds Doctor John H. Watson down on his luck. His prospects look bleak until a chance encounter leads him to a meeting with another literary-minded young physician named Arthur Conan Doyle. Together, they hatch a plan for a series of works based on the adventures of Watson’s roommate, the Consulting Detective Mr. Sherlock Holmes.
Then a very attractive young lady, Mary Morstan, arrives at 221 B Baker street seeking help.  Soon Holmes and Watson are drawn into the dark world of the Sholto brothers, a web of blackmail and murder. Even with the assistance of a rising playwright named Oscar Wilde, Holmes finds himself taxed to the limit of his powers when his own darkest secrets are exposed.  What truths lie beneath the surface of the Picture of Innoncence?
“Miller is one of the finest writers in New Pulp,” reports Airship 27 Productions’ Managing Editor, Ron Fortier. “There is originality to his writing unlike anything else out on the market today. And this particular Holmes adventure is no different. Miller puts a fresh spin on familiar characters and his story crackles with fun and mystery.”
Airship 27 Art Director Rob Davis provides the black and white interior illustrations and Mal Earl delivers his own special styling for the cover.  “Picture of Innocence” is a book for all devoted Holmes and Watson fans; young and old alike.

CAPTAIN HAZZARD : CUSTER'S GHOST





TWO PULP HEROES UNITE!

Airship 27 Productions is thrilled to bring together two of pulpdom’s most unique and colorful heroes in one fast paced, all action adventure; “Captain Hazzard – Custer’s Ghost” by award winning New Pulp writer Ron Fortier.

When an eerie ghost rider appears on the Fort Peck Indian Reservation and begins butchering innocent lives, native superstitions are fueled.  Could this wraith actually be General George Armstrong Custer returned from the dead to seek retribution for his massacre at the Battle of Little Bighorn?  Then, when gangsters attempt to kidnap a Sioux Princess at a prestigious college in New York, Captain Hazzard and his team of adventurers soon find themselves flying to Montana to unravel a truly bizarre mystery.

Accompanying them is Jim Anthony, the famous Super Detective, along with his grandfather, the Comanche shaman, Mephito.  Somewhere in those rugged mountains and plains lies a secret from the past that will change Anthony’s life forever.  But to uncover it, he and the Hazzard will have to risk all and solve the mystery of Custer’s Ghost!

Fortier, the author, and Airship 27 Productions’ Managing Editor, had long wanted to bring both these great heroes together.  “It’s no secret to pulp fans that both were originally invented to copy the legendary Doc Savage,” Fortier related during a recent interview.  “Whereas Jim Anthony went on to have multiple adventures, Captain Hazzard only ever appeared in one issue of his own title and then vanished.  Throughout the years he’s been known as the One Hit Wonder.”

Since beginning Airship 27 Productions, over a decade ago, Fortier and partner, Art Director Rob Davis, have devoted themselves to continuing the adventures of lesser known pulp heroes such as Captain Hazzard and Jim Anthony. To date the company has released four books featuring the Super Detective in anthologies, while Fortier took it upon himself to write the new exploits of the Champion of Justice.

“Custer’s Ghost” has been three years in the making and the author is all too aware that readers have been overly patient awaiting its completion.  The book features interiors by Davis and a stunning cover by Pat Carbajal.  “In the end I hope they will think the wait was worth it,” Fortier says hopefully.  “Just don’t ask me when number six is coming?”

REESE JOINS CAPTAIN ACTION TEAM





BARRY REESE JOINS CAPTAIN ACTION TEAM!

Airship 27 Productions and Captain Action Enterprises LLC are thrilled to welcome popular New Pulp writer Barry Reese to the Captain Action team.  Reese, known for his fast paced, action pulp series such as the Peregrine, Lazarus Gray and Gravedigger, will be making his debut in the third Captain Action novel from Airship 27 Productions.

Since their partnership with Captain Action Enterprises began several years ago, Airship 27 Productions has released two Captain Action full length novels; “Riddle of the Glowing Men” and “Hearts of the Rising Sun,” both by writer Jim Beard. Last year a Lady Action novelette, “The Sands of Forever” was authored by Airship 27 Productions’ Managing Editor, Ron Fortier.

“This is a really great franchise,” said Fortier recently.  “Not only do these books appeal our pulp readers, but also to the legions of Captain Action toy collectors.  It just seemed a natural fit right from the start.  Jim Beard’s first two novels were a big hit and it’s been clear all along that our fans want more.”

Whereas Beard’s own fast rising success began to infringe on his available time, he was still hoping to get a third Captain Action novel done.  Eventually realizing that would be impossible, Beard reached out to his friend and colleague Barry Reese to see if he was available to help with the project.  After receiving approval from all parties involved, the two writers worked out their plans.

“I'm providing a full plot and chapter breakdown,” Beard explained, “as well as providing oversight for every step of the writing to insure characterization and continuity to the previous two novels.”

As for Reese, his own excitement was evident from the start.  "As a lifelong fan of the Captain Action character, I'm thrilled to be able to work with Jim in adding new layers to the legend! We've both bursting with enthusiasm about the project and I can't think of a better writer to be teaming up with!"
 
So there you have it, pulp fans; the first ever team up of Jim Beard and Barry Reese to bring you the third action packed Captain Action adventure in this continuing series from Airship 27 Productions and Captain Action Enterprises, LLC.  Look for the yet untitled book coming your way in early 2017.

THE RETURN OF THE DOMINO LADY

Airship 27 Productions is thrilled to announce that pulpdom’s sexiest masked adventure is back in a brand new collection of her sexy exploits.  From a gang of corrupt policemen to secret Nazis saboteurs out to destroy the Los Angeles Olympics, the beautiful and wily crime-fighter has her hands full in this new quartet of tales by Gene Moyers, Brad Mengel, Robert Ricci and Paul Findley. 

“Volume One of this series was a whopping success for us,” reports Airship 27 Productions’ Managing Editor Ron Fortier.  “We couldn’t keep copies on our tables at the pulp cons.  Our readers, both men and women, are extremely fascinated by this character as there were so few female pulp heroes back in the 30s and 40s.”

Airship 27 Productions was also thrilled to reassemble the art team that made Volume One so beautiful for the fans.  Under the helm of Art Director Rob Davis, artist James Lyle delivered another twelve fantastic black and white interior illustrations while Canadian Ted Hammond offered his second Domino Lady cover; a stunning image that captures the allure and mystery inherent in this great character.

As always, lovely socialite Ellen Patrick weaves her way in and out of trouble, donning her black silk domino mask whenever injustice rears its ugly head. From the time of her father’s murder, Ellen has dedicated herself to righting wrongs.  She just does it in a most peculiar fashion becoming the pulps’ most alluring and deadly hero; the Domino Lady.
