GUN GLORY





AIRSHIP 27 PRODUCTIONS
Presents
GUN GLORY

Airship 27 Productions is thrilled to be kicking off our new production year with the release of an old fashion western novel by veteran writer, R.A. Jones.

Young Jason Mankiller never believed his surname was an omen of his future until the Civil War broke out and he joined the Union Army.  Fate took to him the fields of Gettysburg.  By the time the battle ended, he was sitting atop a small rise surrounded by the bodies of dozens of Confederate troopers.  Days later, while drunk, his fellow soldiers had tears of blood tattooed onto his face.  From that day forward, the Man Who Cried Blood’s reputation spread far and wide.

Ten years later, Jason Mankiller is in Ft. Rogers, Texas, hoping to find a job and bury his past.  But the blood tattoo won’t let him escape the gunfighter’s trail.  Writer R.A. Jones delivers an old fashion western adventure in the grand tradition of Max Brand and Louis L’Amour.  Here are pioneering men and women facing the birth of a new American destiny that will demand their blood, sweat, tears and sacrifice.  For Jason Mankiller, that promise of a better life will be claimed at the end of a smoking gun.

“Gun Glory is a project R.A. Jones has wanted to write for a long time,” explains Airship 27 Productions Managing Editor Ron Fortier.  “A straight out, traditional western melodrama as has been a staple of American literature for decades. Capturing the feel of those classic western writers of the 40s and 50s.  It’s a great book and we’re thrilled to be bringing it to our readers.”

“Gun Glory” features a cover painting by Graham Hill and interior illustrations by Neil T. Foster, with book design by Airship 27 Art Director Rob Davis.

OCCULT DETECTIVES VOL ONE




AIRSHIP 27 PRESENTS

OCCULT DETECTIVES

Airship 27 Productions 26th release of the year is the first volume in a brand new pulp series, “Occult Detectives.”

They battle demons and monsters, hunt ghosts and defend us against the things that go bump in the night.  They are Occult Detectives and they’ve been a staple of pulp fiction since the beginning of those glorious, garish magazines.  Now Airship 27 Productions is thrilled to bring you a quartet of tales starring some of the most unique Occult Detectives ever created; three newly minted heroes and one classic master of mysticism.

From the days of the Wild West, Joel Jenkins offers up his Indian Shaman hero, Lone Crow.  Then we have Josh Reynold’s colorful Charles St. Cyprian, the Queen’s own Royal Occultist, followed by Jim Beard’s Sgt. Janus, the Spirit Breaker.  And we culminate with a little known pulp classic figure, Ravenwood; the Stepson of Mystery as chronicled by Ron Fortier.

“The idea for this collection came from Josh Reynolds,” reports Airship 27 Productions Managing Editor, Ron Fortier.  “The idea of bringing together, in one book, some of the most exciting new pulp characters in print today appealed to me immediately; especially if our line up included such popular heroes as Lone Crow, Charles St. Cyprian and Sgt. Janus.  Since their appearance, each of has won over a loyal following of readers.  But that still left us with one empty slot and that became the opportunity I jumped on instantly.”

Seven years ago, Fortier and Airship 27 Productions Art Director Rob Davis, had produced an adult horror graphic novel entitled, “Daughter of Dracula,” that received rave reviews upon its release from Redbud Studio and is still one of that company’s biggest sellers.  Fortier had long wanted to do was write a sequel that would answer some of the questions posed by many of the comic’s readers.  In particular, “What happened to the main character after the events in the story?”  Now, this anthology offered him that stage combined with the added bonus of allowing him to write a character that was one of his favorites.  “Ravenwood – Stepson of Mystery is such a cool, occult detective and I was itching to get my creative mitts on him,” Fortier confesses.  “This is a story I’ve waited a long, long time to tell.”

The book features interior illustrations by Davis and a cover, colored by Jesus Rodriguez, that spotlights all of the heroes together in a setting outside of space and time.

Get ready to take on possessed gunfighters, eerie mesmerizing spirits, a bewitching temptress and a legion of the undead as these four brand new tales usher you into  thrilling adventures beyond the realm of the ordinary; your guides….the Occult Detectives.

YOUNG NEMO is # 100!!




AIRSHIP 27 PRODUCTIONS’ 100th TITLE!

YOUNG NEMO AND THE BLACK KNIGHTS

Airship 27 Productions presents a new novel by award winning writer/editor, Michael Vance that explores the origins of one of literatures greatest fictional characters; Captain Nemo.

In 1870, French science fiction author Jules Verne published “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea,” and introduced to the world to Captain Nemo, commander of the world’s first submarine, the Nautilus.  But what of Nemo’s origin? 

He was an Indian whose title and name at birth were Prince Rajesh Dakkar, son of the Rajah, or King, of the then independent territory of Bundelkund.  His father hired a teacher whose own reputation for wisdom would spread across the nation. His name was Indra Singh, and his principal purpose was to mentor Rajesh and to secure the best tutors and materials for the instruction of his student.

But book learning within the confines of palace walls was not enough for the young prince.  He longed for adventure and at the age of eighteen purchased a 150 ton brig with square rigged sails, dramatically modified and improved the efficiency of the craft.  He set out to conquer the world leading an international crew of rogues and thieves soon to be called the Black Knights.

Airship 27 Managing Editor, Ron Fortier, explains the story behind this incredible book.  “Back in the 1980s, Michael Vance wrote a comic book mini-series entitled, THE ADVENTURES OF YOUNG NEMO, which was illustrated by our own Art Director Rob Davis.  When he suggested the possibility of adapting that series into a novel, all of us knew it was a great idea and he’s proven us right.”

Davis, along with colorist Shane Evans provides the cover and design of the book with interior illustrations by artist Chuck Bordell.
