JIM ANTHONY VS MASTERMIND



 
JIM ANTHONY
Vs
MASTERMIND

Airship 27 Productions is thrilled to present the fifth book in their continuing new adventures of that classic pulp hero, Jim Anthony – Super Detective.

Jim Anthony had battled all manner of evil and villainy in his illustrious career as a globe-trotting adventurer. But now he finds himself challenged by three unique criminals, each with devastating weapons of destruction; the Flame Wizard, Baron Strum and Prof. Meteon. Each is determined to wreak unimaginable havoc on the world and vanquish the Super Detective in the process.

The hero soon comes to suspect there is a fourth nemesis; a super Mastermind orchestrating these other villains in a cunning, deadly plot for reasons he is unable to fathom. But the Super Detective is never alone thanks to his various allies ala pilot Tm Gentry and British butler Dawkins and along the way he is joined by the beautiful Maria Flores and her All-Girl Squad. 

Writer Adam Mudman Bezecny has plotted a fast-paced, action-packed novel in four parts creating some of the most dastardly pulp villains ever to challenge the Super Detective.  “This is a really interesting collection,” explains Airship 27 Productions’ Managing Editor Ron Fortier. “Although each of the chapters works very much like a stand alone adventure, ultimately they create a longer narrative plot leading to the Super Detective’s newest arch-fiend, Mastermind.”

Artist Richard Jun provides the marvelous black and white interior illustrations and Adam Shaw delivers the stunning cover based on one of those pieces. All of which are assembled under the guiding hand of Airship 27 Art Director Rob Davis.

 “Jim Anthony is one of our favorite pulp heroes,” Fortier adds happily, “and we hope to continue this series of new books for as long as our readers enjoy them.” So buckle up for a wild ride, pulp fans, this is adventure with a capital A …for Jim Anthony!

THE EYE OF QUANG CHI




THE EYE OF QUANG CHI

Airship 27 Productions is thrilled to announce the first in a brand new mystery series by prolific New Pulp writer, Fred Adams Jr.  “The Eye of Quang Chi,” is the first book in the Smith Brothers mystery chronicles.

In the early 1900s San Francisco tycoon Reginald Smith had all a man could want. His trading business, the Oriental Trade Consortium, had become a financial empire and the beautiful Ling-Tao wife. Then his fortune changed when his beloved died in childbirth, giving him two sons, Ming and Hong. The problem being they were co-joined twins, forever tied to each other by an accident of birth.

Smith hired them a brilliant tutor who convinced him to stop sheltering his sons from the public. He argued that they would only survive the cruelty of the world by embracing it, but becoming as strong and clever as their father. Thus began their true education and upon his death, Reginald Smith left his vast wealth and influence to his amazing sons.

Now a strange mystery plagues the city’s fabled Chinatown. A mysterious gem from China has been stolen and believed to be in the city. Pitting their unique intellects and vast resources, the Smith Brothers take on the case to ward of a bloody tong war. But can even they solve the mystery of the Eye of Quang Chi before the streets ran red with blood?

“Ever since signing on with Airship 27 Productions, Fred Adams Jr. has provided us with some of the most original, exciting and unique novels to bear the New Pulp label,” applauds Airship 27 Productions’ Managing Editor, Ron Fortier. “Adams is a retired college writing teacher and has proven he knows how to tell a story. What has blown us all away is the strange twist and turns he creates, keeping his readers off-balance and providing them with new, fresh experiences. Believe me, The Eye of Quang Chis is no exception.”

Joining the talented writer in presenting this first Smith Brothers adventure is well known British artist Morgan Fitzsimons, who provided both the ten interior illustrations and the colorful, evocative cover. “Morgan is a treasure,” Fortier adds. “Her research in the time and setting of the story was impeccable and she truly has a flair for the romantic. She was the perfect choice for this title.”  Award Winning Airship 27 Art Director Rob Davis put it all together with his deft designing touch and thus offers up one of the company’s most original and intriguing packages. Fortier concludes enthusiastically with, “We think mystery fans are going to love with the Smith Brothers.”

BASS REEVES FRONTIER MARSHAL Vol Two



 
AIRSHIP 27 PRODUCTIONS
Presents
BASS REEVES
FRONTIER LAWMAN Vol 2

Airship 27 Productions is proud to announce the release of “Bass Reeves – Frontier Lawman Vol 2. This is the second in a series of brand new stories featuring one of the greatest historical figures of American history.

In the years after the Civil War, the most successful lawman to operate in the untamed frontiers was U.S. Deputy Marshal Bass Reeves. An ex-slave, Reeves pinned on the silver badge because he believed all men to be equal in the eyes of the law and so he would become an agent of that justice. In his career he captured over 3,000 felons and survived fourteen major gun battles. A crack shot with both rifle and pistol, he was never wounded once.

“The first time I heard of Bass Reeves, I was shocked that I hadn’t encountered him before in the history books I’d read while in school,” says Airship 27 Productions Managing Editor Ron Fortier. “I mean, what American child wasn’t brought up on the legendary figures of the Old West like Kit Carson, Wyatt Earp, Jesse James and Billy the Kid? But why were there no accounts about this amazing lawman?” Determined to find the answer to that puzzle, Fortier began his own research and soon discovered it was no accident that omitted the life of this dedicated deputy marshal from the chronicles of the Wild West but rather outright bigotry on the part of government sponsored educational programs.

“At the turn of the 20th Century, the Washington bureaucracy controlled education in the country and purposely forbade any mention of the contributions made by blacks in the settling of the West after Civil War. This unconscionable bigotry became the norm throughout the land,” Fortier continues. “Now it was time to set the record straight, in any way we could via our limited means. To that end, Airship 27 Productions put together an anthology featuring four fictionalized adventures starring Bass Reeves. “If stories could be invented to further the legends of such peace officers as Wyatt Earp and Bat Masterson, then why not Bass Reeves?”  That first collection of Bass Reeves stories went on to become one of the company’s best selling titles.

Now, in this second volume of an ongoing series, the Deputy Marshal finds himself teaming up with a spitfire of a she-devil known as Quickshot Katy, chasing down desperate train robbers, protecting an army gold shipment and defending a vicious killer against an entire town demanding blood. Writers Milton Davis, Mel Odom, Michael Black and Derrick Ferguson have saddled up to deliver four new action packed western yarns starring the one and only Bass Reeves. Award winning artist Marco Turini provides the stunning cover and Airship 27 Productions’ own Art Director and Designer, Rob Davis the twelve interior illustrations.

Time to join the posse as the legendary U.S Deputy Marshal Bass Reeves sets out to once again bring justice to frontier as only he could.

He’s a talented writer of the macabre and “Sllits” is no exception.”

Joining Vance is artist Gary Kato who provides the books interior illustrations and Art Director Rob Davis completes the package with an eerie cover by Canadian Ted Hammond thus offering up another classic Airship 27 pulp thriller.
