The Adventures of Captain Graves



AIRSHIP 27 PRODUCTIONS
Presents
THE ADVENTURES OF CAPTAIN GRAVES

Airship 27 Productions is proud to present author Thomas McNulty’s newest full length novel, “The Adventures of Captain Graves.”

Of all the colorful men who sailed the exotic waters of the South Pacific, none was more legendary Captain Elliot Graves. Rogue, pirate, spy, explorer were all titles used in telling of his adventures aboard his ship, The Reaper’s Sythe. Then in 1944, Captain Graves disappeared without a trace, his ship supposedly sinking of the coast of Australia with all hands lost.

Eight years later, reporter Bill Harrison finds him living in Honolulu and manages to persuade Graves to recount the events of his last and greatest adventure. Now for the first time the legendary sea captain will reveal what actually happened on a remote South Sea island that changed his life forever.

“I first met Thomas McNulty at the Windy City Pulp show years ago,” reports Airship 27 Productions Managing Editor Ron Fortier. “At that time he was selling his comprehensive biography of Hollywood swashbuckler, Errol Flynn. We became friends and I later learned he is one of the premier western writers in the country today.”

Though successful at writing westerns, McNulty had always wanted to pen an old fashion pulper inspired by the man whose life he had chronicled, Errol Flynn. From that inspiration was born “The Adventures of Captain Graves.” He approached Fortier with the idea and soon the book was in full production.

Now Thomas McNulty spins a fast paced tale of two-fisted men, beautiful women and lush island paradises where both heaven and hell await. Canadian Ted Hammond provides the gorgeous cover and Ed Catto, a well known marketing personality, donned his own artist cap to do nine black and white interior pieces, all of which was assembled by award winning Art Direct Rob Davis.

“The Adventures of Captain Graves” is a classic pulp adventure delivered by a master storyteller.

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.
