AIRSHIP 27 PRODUCTIONS
Presents
QUATERMAIN : THE NEW ADVENTURES
THE LIGHTNING BIRD

Airship 27 Productions is thrilled to announce the fourth book in their series, “Quatermain : The New Adventures. Writer Wayne Carey offers up his second full length novel in the series with, “The Lightning Bird.”

When the president of the First National Bank of Durban dies mysteriously, consumed by flames, a beautiful Zulu woman named Izula approaches hunter-guide Allan Quatermain with a fantastic tale. She believes the cause of the man’s death, and those of others is the legendary Impundulu, better known as the Lightning Bird. 

Quatermain reluctantly agrees to help her and with the aid of his friend, Sean Finnegan, they launch an expedition eastward to the Grootslang Kloof located in the Soutpansberg Mountains. It is here, the mysterious forest of Thathe, surrounding Lake Fundudzi, that Izula hopes to find the malevolent witch doctor she believes is controlling the Impundulu.

The trail leads them a hidden city now ruled by a sadistic Portuguese trader. To free the enslaved populace and defeat him, Quatermain and his companions will have to confront an evil as old as time itself. Here is H. Rider Haggards’ most famous pulp hero in a brand new, action packed novel that will have pulp fans cheering.

“Wayne Carey’s work is true to the spirit of Haggard’s character in every way,” says Airship 27 Productions’ Managing Editor, Ron Fortier. Carey’s first Quatermain novel, “The Beast Men,” was released earlier this year to critical success. “Even the good people of the Rider Haggard Society applauded Carey’s ability to portray the hero authentically,” adds Fortier. For “The Lightning Bird” artist Clayton Hinkle once again provides the interior illustrations while Graham Hill returns to do the cover. “As long as we have such a talented team in place, our readers can expect to see many new Quatermain African adventures.”

THE PURPLE SCAR in The Black Fog


AIRSHIP 27 PRODUCTIONS
Presents
THE PURPLE SCAR
In
THE BLACK FOG

Airship 27 Productions is proud to present the very first full length Purple Scar novel written by New Pulp author, Gene Moyers.

A hooded man suddenly appears on the streets of Akelton carrying a strange device strapped to his back. Affixed to it is a nozzle from which enveloping black fog spews forth quickly swallowing everything in its path; to include men, women in children. And just like that the city is thrown into panic as the mysterious villain begins popping up all over the city wielding his eerie weapon.

Realizing he is facing a supernatural threat, Captain Dan Griffin enlists the aid of the city’s own gruesome crime fighter, the Purple Scar. Secretly plastic surgeon Doctor Miles Murdoch, the Scar, with the aid of his nurse Dale Jordan and ally Tommy Pedlar, is quickly on the hunt for the mastermind behind the fog of terror. For in the first time in his vigilante career, the Purple Scar is battling an evil scientific genius whose purposes can only herald doom and bloodshed. It is a battle he cannot afford to lose.

Having contributed short stories to the two previous volumes in this series, Moyers took the next step in writing a novel featuring the Haunted Horror.  “We see it often enough,” says Airship 27 Managing Editor, Ron Fortier. “Every now and then a New Pulp writer will develop a special affinity for a golden age character. Moyers seemed to have fixated on the uniqueness of the Scar’s persona. More than just a run-of-the-mill avenger type, the Purple Scar stories infused a generous portion of horror along with their suspense. It was this added element that fascinated Moyers and eventually inspired him to write The Black Fog. And we couldn’t be any happier.”

Joining Moyers on the project were two amazing artists. Former Pulp Factory Award winner Chris Kohler provided the 9 black and white interior illustrations while British painter Graham Hill the eerie colorful cover depicting the gruesome Scar.  Art Director Rob Davis brought it all together to produce one of Airship 27 Productions’ most spectacular titles. If you think you know the Purple Scar, think again.

JEZEBEL JOHNSTON - Mourning Star


AIRSHIP 27 PRODUCTIONS
Presents
JEZEBEL JOHNSTON – Mourning Star

Airship 27 Productions once again sets sails with author Nancy Hansen in the next thrilling chapter featuring Jezebel Johnston, Pirate Queen.

With Emile Gagnon’s Sea Witch laid up in the French port of Fort Royale for minor repairs, Jezebel Johnston and young Zachary Spencer go into town to trade with the local merchants. While there, they come to the attention of an unscrupulous smuggler named Luc Charbonneau who cleverly manipulates them into being blamed for thievery committed by his own gang. But before he can rally an impromptu lynch party, they are rescued by Captain Ancel Thibodeaux, the real authority on the small West Antilles island.

Thibodeaux is fascinated by the beautiful Jezebel and pressures her and Zachary into joining the crew of his own pirate ship, Mourning Star. Having no other recourse, the two agree and the wily French buccaneer sets about tutoring the lovely mulatto into being part of his elaborate scheme to sail across the Atlantic and raid the rich Barbary Coast.

“Who doesn’t like a rousing pirate yarn?” asks Airship 27 Productions Managing Editor, Ron Fortier. “The Jezebel Johnston series is both historically accurate and filled with enough action and adventure to fill a dozen such books.”   

Once again writer Nancy Hansen unfurls the sails of her imagination in this, the fourth chapter in the saga of Jezebel Johnston as she navigates the dangerous waters of rogues, brigands and scalawags on her way to becoming the greatest pirate of them all!

The book features 12 black and white interior illustrations by Art Director Rob Davis and a gorgeous cover painting by Ted Hammond.

BROTHER BONES - CITY OF LOST SOULS


BROTHER BONES
City of Lost Souls

Airship 27 Productions is thrilled to announce the fourth title in Ron Fortier’s daring new pulp series featuring the Undead Avenger, Brother Bones.  “City of Lost Souls,” continues the saga of Cape Noire’s supernatural protector, the relentless skull masked vigilante who exist for only one purpose; the utter destruction of evil.

In the past three volumes, pulp fans were introduced to Tommy Bonello, a cruel sadistic hitman who found himself cursed with a conscience and then was murdered by his own twin brother, Jack. But hell didn’t await the slain gunman, rather his soul was chosen by the Cosmic Fates to return to the land of the living and there become the gruesome avatar of justice, Brother Bones. The vengeful spirit complied by taking over his brother’s body, effectively ending Jack’s life and thus becoming an animated zombie.

Starting with “Brother Bones The Undead Avenger,” the character burst on to the New Pulp scene over ten years. His remarkable debut was followed by a full length novel, “Brother Bones – Six Days of the Dragon,” by author Roman Leary, working under Fortier’s guidance. The following year saw the release of Fortier’s second collection, “Brother Bones – Tapestry of Blood.” Now comes the long awaited fourth book, another anthology featuring five gripping tales of murder, mayhem and the unstoppable Undead Avenger.

“I sometimes think Bones is in charge,” says Fortier, who is also Airship 27 Productions’ Managing Editor. “His stories propel me along as if I were merely a chronicler. Bones and the entire cast of Cape Noire have, over the years, taken on realistic characteristics in my imagination. In this new collection, we find old characters from previous stories resurfacing in new ways I’d never have conceived of ten years ago. Each is taking center stage with startling new stories that will definitely change the landscape of Cape Noire forever.”

The longest tale in the collection is “The Synthetic Man” and for the first time ever, Brother Bones combats a classic golden age pulp villain, Doctor Satan. “This was a real challenge,” Fortier adds. “I realized bringing Satan into Cape Noire would set a precedent allowing other classic pulp characters to enter this world. Where that will take us right now is anybody’s guess.”

Joining Fortier to provide ten black and white illustrations is Rob Davis, Art Director for Airship 27 Productions and super graphic artist Michael Stribling created the beautiful stunning cover. And this new book is soon to be followed by a brand new role-playing game module, “Ron Fortier’s Cape Noire” from Scaldcrow Games due out within a few weeks. The popularity of Brother Bones continues to grow and these new entries are sure to add to that momentum.
