SIX-GUN TERRORS



 
WEST OF WEIRD

Airship 27 Productions is thrilled to presents its first ever weird western pulp title, SIX-GUN TERRORS by one of the brightest new voices in pulp fiction today; Fred Adams, Jr.

Former Union scouts and saddle tramps Durken and McAfee are more than satisfied with their lives as cattle-punchers for Homer Eldridge and his Triple Six ranch.  When a mysterious, black clad preacher arrives in town leading a congregation of dwarfish foreigners, strange things begin to happen.  First cattle from various spreads are found savagely butchered out on the range for no apparent reason.  Then several Triple Six hands go missing.

McAfee begins to suspects there is something very sinister about the new reverend and his people.  Something that will bring more horror and destruction with it. 

SIX-GUN TERRORS features not one, but two Durken and McAfee adventures; the longer “Six-Guns and Old Ones,” described above and the shorter “The Angel,” wherein our cowboys confront the ghost of a Confederate sniper they killed in the Siege of Atlanta.  Both are masterpieces of the macabre.

Writer Fred Adams, Jr. spins two weird western tales that will have readers on their edge of their seats and jumping at shadows.  Mixing a heady brew that is half H.P. Lovecraft and half Louis L’Amour, SIX-GUN TERRORS is a creepy reading experience not soon forgotten.

Fred Adams, Jr. is a western Pennsylvania native who has enjoyed a lifelong love affair with horror, fantasy, and science fiction literature and films.  He holds a Ph.D. in American Literature from Duquesne University and recently retired from teaching writing and literature in the English Department of Penn State University. He has published over 50 short stories in amateur, and professional magazines as well as hundreds of news features as a staff writer and sportswriter for the now Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.  In the 1970s Fred published the fanzine Spoor and its companion The Spoor Anthology.

“Fred Adams is an amazing writer,” says Airship 27 Productions Managing Editor, Ron Fortier.  “We recently released his first novel, HITWOLF, a few months ago to rave critical reviews and now we bring you this eerie western project that is in a class by itself.  It is rare that we release two books by the same writer in one year, but Adams is truly a unique talent and deserves this attention.  We are very excited to be showcasing his works.”

The book is amply illustrated by another rising star in the New Pulp field, artist Zachary Brunner.  His previous work for Airship 27 Productions includes “George Chance – The Green Ghost,” “Sgt. Janus Returns” and “The Apocalypse Sucks.”  A filmmaker amongst other skills, Brunner’s art is evocative of many of the old classic pulp magazine illustrators.  Together he and Fred Adams, Jr. make an unbeatable creative force in world of New Pulp Fiction.

CHALLENGER STORM # 2



CHALLENGER STORM
In
CURSE OF POSEIDON

Airship 27 Productions is thrilled to announce the release of the second Challenger Storm adventure as written by creator Don Gates and illustrated by award winning artist Michael Kaluta.

“Challenger Storm’s debut novel, “The Isle of Blood,” was a delight to all pulp fans everywhere,” says Airship 27 Managing Editor Ron Fortier.  “In Storm, Don Gates has given us a classic pulp hero in the grand tradition of Doc Savage, Jim Anthony and Captain Hazzard.  Add illustrations and covers by one of the finest artists in the world today and you have a recipe for excellence.  With “Curse of Poisidon,” Gates and Kaluta have amped up the action and thrills that is sure to thrill our readers.”

When several cargo ships begin disappearing on the waters of the Aegean Sea rumors begin to spread about black-armored demons rising up out of the deep.  For Challenger Storm and his MARDL team, these events hold no particular interest until one of Storm’s troubleshooters, Diana St.Clair, informs him that her former lover, and one-time MARDL scientist, Herbert Chambers is among the missing.

Later a freakish wave wipes out a small Greek fishing village leaving only a handful of survivors.  Is it possible someone has learned how to control the seas to do their bidding? When Storm and his companions arrive at a mid-ocean refueling station, they are attacked by saboteurs wielding bizarre rifles that fire sea-water.

Who is the mysterious figure calling himself Poseidon and what is the secret of his ability to create monstrous tidal waves?  Can Challenger Storm find his underwater base in time to stop this mad genius before he rains down more watery destruction upon unsuspecting coastal populations?  Is mankind is doomed to be ruled by a new King of the Seas! 

Here is high-octane pulp adventure on…and below the waves!

“Curse of Poseidon” was edited by Fortier with book design by Airship 27 Art Director Rob Davis and is now available in both hard copy and on Kindle.

PEEK AT WEIRD WESTERN

Every now and then we discover a new artist or writer that makes us take a step back and simply go WOW!!  So fantastic is their talent, we are in awe of what they can do.

Such is the case for both writer Fred Adams Jr. and artist Zachary Brunner.   Zachary's work has been seen in our second Sgt. Janus book and our first Green Ghost volume while also providing interiors for Peggy Chambers' The Apocalypse Sucks.  Whereas Fred is relatively new to Airship 27 with his first novel for us having just been released weeks ago, Hitwolf.

Both these two men are amazing creators individually. Now we are bringing them together for a new western project called SIX-GUN TERRORS which should be out in a few more weeks.  We think it is something special and hope you'll agree.  Here's one of the nine black and white spot illos by Zachary to whet your appetites.

SINBAD & The Warriors of Forever





SINBAD & THE WARRIORS OF FOREVER

Airship 27 Productions is happy to announce the third volume in their SINBAD – The New Voyages series.  But this one, unlike the first two anthologies, is a full length novel adventure by C.B. Harvey.

“I’ve always been a huge fan of the Ray Harryhausen Sinbad movies,” explains Airship 27 Productions Managing Editor, Ron Fortier.  “The combination of exotic locales, a classic hero and Harryhausen’s fantastic stop-motion creatures delighted my imagination to no end.  This was the kind of story telling I wanted to bring to our pulp readers.”

Two years ago, Fortier set about creating a black Sinbad of Nubian origin who commanded an international crew that included Henri Delacrois, an archer from Gaul, Ralf Gunarson, a powerful young Viking from the northlands and Tishimi Osara, a female samurai from feudal Japan.  Assembling some of the finest writers in New Pulp today, Airship 27 Productions released two volumes, each containing three stories featuring this cast of characters.  Now comes C.B. Harvey’s novel, “Sinbad and the Warriors of Forever.”

When the undead Warriors of Forever, led by the one-eyed witch, Al-Izikel the Scarlet, attack the peaceful fishing village of the Xubanthali and kidnap their children, it falls upon Sinbad and the crew of the Blue Nymph to come to their aid.  Accompanied by the town elder, Al-Bulcar, and Illia, the beautiful daughter of the village shaman, the Blue Nymph is set on a course of dangerous mystery.  To locate the fabled demon horde they must first find the illusive Scholars of Bethsea for they alone hold the key to solving the riddle of the evil sorceress and the reason behind her abduction of villager’s young.

Writer C.B. Harvey spins a fantastic seafaring adventure that will leave readers cheering. The book is illustrated by commercial artist James Conahan with design work by Art Director Rob Davis.

“Ray Harryhausen would have loved this!” Says Charles Saunders, author of the popular Imaro series.
