MARTY QUADE - PRIVATE DETECTIVE


AIRSHIP 27 PRODUCTIONS
Presents
THE RETURN OF MARTY QUADE

During the days of the classic pulps, one of the finest mystery magazines on the stands was 10 DETECTIVE ACES.  Among the revolving series that appeared in that monthly were the cases of tough guy private eye Marty Quade as written by Emile C. Tepperman whose career went from 1933 to 1942.  His most remembered work has been the Purple Invasion Series for Operator 5. Little is known about Mr. Tepperman. He was credited for writing radio broadcasts for programs such as Suspense and Gang Busters. Other than that, his life remains a mystery.

Now Airship 27 Productions is thrilled to bring back this classic pulp character in four brand new adventures written by Gordon Dymowski, Chris Bell, Gene Moyers and Michael Black. From a missing pulp writer to spies on a military base, gumshoe Quade finds himself knee deep in hot dames, flying fists, and lethal lead. But Quade is no ordinary shamus, with both a quick wit and street-smart survival skills; he almost always solves the case.

Brian Loner provides 12 black and white interior illustrations while Airship 27 Productions’ own award Winning Art Director, Rob Davis, the cover, which is our homage to that old classic pulp mag.

THE DEAD SHERIFF - Cannibals & Bloodsuckers


THE DEAD SHERIFF RIDES AGAIN

Airship 27 Productions is thrilled to present “Mark Justice’s The Dead Sheriff – Cannibals & Bloodsuckers.”

Before his death in Feb, 2016, radio personality turned pulp writer, Mark Justice wrote “The Dead Sheriff,” a weird western that merged his love of both horror fiction and cowboy movies. Last year Airship 27 Productions proudly produced a new edition of that one and only book. Later, it was learned that Mark had actually begun a second book featuring the creepy lawman and his Indian companion, Sam. After reading the partial manuscript, fellow pulp scribe Ron Fortier volunteered to complete the tale with Mark’s widow, Norma Kay Justice, giving her approval.

“It’s always intimidating to pick up a story from another writer,” Fortier confesses. “At first I’d thought I would find someone else to take the job and I’d merely edit. Instead, while reading through Mark’s original section, it became all to clear to me that we shared the same kind of quirky black humor. In the end, I knew it would be up to me to finish this over-the-top adventure. Now I leave it to Mark’s fans to say if I got it right.”

Starting only months after the conclusion of their first adventure, Sam and journalist, Richard O’Malley, along with the Dead Sheriff, find themselves battling twisted cannibal brothers, a traveling bordello of vampire prostitutes and a demon from hell. Can even the Dead Sheriff survive this Trio of Terror?  Returning to the series were artists Zachary Brunner (cover) and Art Cooper (interior illustrations) with Art Director Rob Davis on book design. This new book also features a special post-script by Mrs. Norma Kay Justice.

So get ready to saddle up for some truly wild and hair raising adventure, pulp fans, as the Dead Sheriff rides again!

BASS REEVES - Frontier Marshal Vol 3


AIRSHIP 27 PRODUCTIONS
Presents
BASS REEVES – FRONTIER MARSHAL Vol 3

Airship 27 Productions is thrilled to announce the release of the third volume in their western anthology series starring the greatest western lawman of all times; Bass Reeves.

In all the annals of frontier history, there was no lawman as skilled or tireless in meting out justice then former runaway slave, Bass Reeves. Having lived with the Five Civilized Tribes during the Civil War years, Reeves was taught tracking and hunting by the natives of this rugged land.  After marrying and starting a horse ranch, he soon realized raising a large family (he would have ten children) was expensive. Thus when offered to pin on the U.S. Deputy Marshal’s badge, Reeves accepted for two practical reasons; his own respect for the law and the fact that Marshal’s got to keep whatever bounty was posted on the outlaws they hunted.

“The first two books in this series are still hot sellers,” reports Airship 27 Productions’ Managing Editor, Ron Fortier. “Interest in Bass Reeves continues to grow and it is our plan to release a new volume every year.” Fortier also noted that there have been rumblings from Hollywood on several possible Bass Reeves projects. “It is only a matter of time before someone out there realizes how important such a film or series could be. But while they waffle, we’ll continue to put out Bass Reeves books.”  Airship 27 Productions’ award winning Art Director, Rob Davis, provided both the cover and interior illustrations.

In this volume, writers R.A. Jones, Terry Alexander and Mel Odom put the legendary Marshal to the test in three brand new adventures. From facing an old deadly foe, hunting a killer in Indian country and going after a preacher who believes himself to be God’s own avenging angel. This is the Wild West at the wildest, challenging the one man who could not be beaten, Marshal Bass Reeves.

SUN KOH - Heir to Atlantis


AIRSHIP 27 PRODUCTIONS
Presents
SUN KOH : Heir to Atlantis


Airship 27 Productions answers the question, “Who is Sun Koh?”

During the 1930s German pulp writer Paul Muller wrote a series of adventures featuring his hero, Sun Koh : Heir of Atlantis. From the very start he was intended to an Aryan version of America’s Doc Savage. Like Savage he was larger than life and accompanying him on his adventurers was a group of loyal, unique individuals. Whereas Doc Savage was a man of science and his companions all experts in various technical fields, Sun-Koh’s stories were slanted towards mythology and mysticism. He was supposedly a time-traveler from the sunken continent of Atlantis, a member of the royal family and master of arcane abilities. Although there were plenty of super scientific gizmos in his adventures, it was the magic that took center stage. His aides were magicians, immortals and religious Hindu assassins. Quite an eclectic mix.

In 2010, in the midst of the New Pulp explosion, Dr. Art Sippo wrote a brand new adventure novel featuring these characters. “Sun-Koh : Heir of Atlantis.” It premiered to rousing acclaim by pulp fans and a sequel was planned. Sadly that second book never materialized and eight years later, the first book is out of print. Now Airship 27 Productions is about to rectify all that. Ron Fortier, Airship 27 Productions’ Managing Editor, entered into an agreement with Dr. Sippo to reprint “Sun-Koh : Heir to Atlantis.” 

“We couldn’t be happier,” Fortier reported after getting Dr. Sippo’s green light. “Whatever one’s thoughts on this German based character, he clearly has a place in the history of pulps and Art has written a whopping great book that demands to stay in print and we at Airship 27 are going to see it does.”

Now Dr. Art Sippo’s controversial New Pulp offering returns in this newly expanded Airship 27 edition with an introduction by Pulp Factory Award winner writer, Andrew Salmon and interior illustrations by Art Director Rob Davis and a stunning cover by Adam Shaw. The book also contains a Bonus Back-Up feature spotlighting Sun Koh’s amazing crew.

JEZEBEL JOHNSTON - Birth of a Buccaneer


AIRSHIP 27 PRODUCTIONS
Collects Jezebel Johnston Series
In
BIRTH OF A BUCCANEER

Several years ago, popular New Pulp writer Nancy Hansen created a pirate series based on the life and exploits of a Caribbean Island girl named Jezebel Johnston; the daughter of a bordello madam and a British freebooter.  At the age of 14, longing for a life of seafaring adventure, Jezebel disguises herself as a boy and signs on to a pirate ship.

All that is told in the first book, “Devil’s Handmaid.” Hansen continued the girl’s story in three subsequent sequels, “Queen of Anarchy,” “Sea Witch” and “Mourning Star.” Now Airship 27 Productions has collected all four in one omnibus volume, “Birth of a Buccaneer.”

“It was time for this collection,” says Airship 27 Production’s Managing Editor Ron Fortier. “All too often we’d be at a pulp convention and people would come to our table only to learn certain volumes were sold out, or new readers couldn’t find the first book. After some discussion with Nancy, all of us agreed the saga had in fact reached a critical point and was about to move on to an entire new phase in Jezebel’s life. Ergo this was the best point to do a collection.”

Colorado based artist Kevin A. Johnson signed on to do the cover and Art Director and book designer Rob Davis assembled all four volumes to include all his previous interior illustrations, for a grand total of 36. “After Legends of New Pulp Fiction, this is the biggest book we’ve ever released, at 638 pages,” Fortier adds. “We’re sure Nancy’s fans are going to be thrilled with it while we look forward to her fifth novel in this amazing on-going saga.”
