THE SNAKE STRIKES!
Airship 27 Productions is proud to present the latest pulp thriller by Oklahoma based, award winning writer, Michael Vance: SNAKE : NEST OF VIPERS!
In the last few years of World War II, a group of brave Germans who opposed Hitler and his Third Reich orchestrated an underground movement that worked from within to defeat the Nazis. These brave men and women were constantly at risk being hunted by the ruthless Gestapo. Their fate, if captured, was agonizing torture and death. Still they struggled on.
Six years later, in the back alleys of New York’s Bowery district, a mysterious masked avenger calling herself the Snake appears. She recruits denizens of the street to be her agents and begins a ruthless campaign against organized crime. Who is she and what is her connection to the events in Berlin prior to the collapse of the Third Reich?
“Michael Vance is one of the finest genre writers working today,” says Airship 27 Productions Managing Editor, Ron Fortier. “His Weird Horror Tales trilogy received critical acclaim and last year we published his YOUNG NEMO & THE BLACK KNIGHTS, a novelization of his own comicbook series. This time he has uncovered a lost comicbook nugget and what he has done with it is going to excite a whole lot of people.”
Based on a six-page synopsis by legendary comics writer, Richard Hughes, author Michael Vance has woven a thrilling, fast paced adventure that will keep readers guessing and on the edge of their seats from start to finish. You’ve never met a character like the Snake. She’s sexy. She maybe crazy. But she is most of all, deadly!
SNAKE : NEST OF VIPERS features a stunning cover by comicbook and pin-up star, Ted Hammond with interior illustrations by newcomer Greg Keyzer with book design by Rob Davis.

THE SHADOW OF HER SMILE
Airship 27 Productions presents a vampire thriller by new pulp writer Jack Beddows.
“The Shadow of Her Smile, is an old fashion erotic thriller,” declared Airship 27 Production’s Manager Ron Fortier. “It has all the moody atmosphere of those old classic horror novels long since forgotten. While reading it for the first time, I kept envisioning the black and white Universal classic, Dracula’s Daughter. The female vampire Beddows has envisioned here is a deadly beauty no reader will soon forget.”
It is 1914, on the eve of the Great War, young 19 yr old Abraham Helmsworth, the only son of a royal British family, is about to embark on what he believes to be a noble adventure. He has enlisted in the army as a commissioned officer and is soon to sail for France with his troops. He has also become engaged to the lovely Agatha Fenton, his childhood sweetheart who has promised to wait for his return to marry.
Then, a few days before shipping out, Abraham attends a musical show and meets Lucilla Deauville, a stunning beauty who instantly mesmerizes him. He has never been so attracted to a woman in such a visceral way. Weeks later, he encounters her again but this time on a bloody battlefield. With this encounter he learns the dark secret she hides in the shadow of her smile. It is a secret that will lead him through the gates of a living hell from which there is no escape.
All art of The Shadow of Her Smile is provided by Adam Shaw from his stunning cover to the nine creepy black and white interiors with book design by Airship 27 Art Director Rob Davis.
