C.O. Jones - Mobsters & Monsters



C.O. JONES
Mobsters & Monsters

Airship 27 Productions is thrilled to announce the latest pulp thriller by one of the fastest rising stars in the New Pulp field, Fred Adams, Jr.

During World War II, C.O. Jones, under a different name, was recruited into a special unit of the OSS (Office of Strategic Services).  Special in that all the members had some kind of extrasensory abilities bordering on magic.  Their main mission was to seek out and combat the Nazis’ top secret Occult Practioners.

But the war is over and C.O. is just another veteran looking for a fresh start.  He hopes the quiet little town of Brownsville, Pennsylvania is the perfect place to do so.  Until, that is, he gets involved with the local criminal element and discovers, through his own unique gifts, that someone is using dark magic to further their own illegal agenda.  For C.O. Jones, it seems the ways of magic are to be found in the most unlikely places.

“I can’t say enough good things about Fred Adams,” says Airship 27 Productions Managing Editor, Ron Fortier.  “From day one he has delivered some of the best fiction I’ve read in years.  His style is both competent and easy, delivering suspenseful stories like all the old pros from the classic pulps of the 30s and 40s.  This is his fourth book with us and honestly, each one is better than the last.  If you love pulp fiction, remember the name Fred Adams.”

Fred Adams, Jr. delivers another scorching thriller that races across the pages with fresh, original characters, suspense and ever-exploding action.  Features spot illustrations by artist Clayton Hinkle with a stunning cover by Carl Yonders, all under the guidance of award winning Art Director, Rob Davis.  Hold on to your seatbelts as you meet the C.O. Jones, one of the toughest new pulp heroes of them all.

SIX-GUN TERRORS Vol Two



SIX-GUN TERRORS Vol II

Airship 27 Productions is thrilled to be releasing the second volume in this series of weird westerns by writer Fred Adams, Jr.

Deep in the heart of the Caplock Mountains of Nevada a frightening new horror is preying on settlers and prospectors alike.  When the entire crew of a mining outfit is found torn to pieces, the U.S. Cavalry is sent to investigate under the command of General Sherman; the famous Civil War tactician.  He immediately recruits his former army scouts turned cowpunchers, Durken and McFee, to help ferret out this new threat to frontier settlements.

Soon the two cantankerous saddle-mates find themselves caught up between government agents and frightened Indian tribes who warn of an ancient evil returned to plague the white invaders; warriors capable of transforming themselves into beast!

“At a recent comic convention, this title was our best seller,” reports Airship 27 Productions’ Managing Editor Ron Fortier.  “People were immediately taken with artist Zachary Brunner’s gorgeous cover and we’re thrilled to announce he’s back handling all the art in this terrific sequel; both cover and interior illustrations.”  Readers of the first book in the series may notice a peculiar familiarity in the artist’s background on the cover. They are in fact a continuation of those seen in the first cover.  “This was a deliberate decision,” says Fortier.  “And we can’t wait until readers put both books together side by side.”  Award winning Art Director, Rob Davis adjusted the old logo to make this visual sequencing possible.

Once again Fred Adams Jr. delivers a gripping weird western that combines the best elements of both genres to deliver a non-stop action-adventure that will have pulp fans whipping through the pages.  Six-Terrors Vol II is a book you won’t want to put down.

RAVENWOOD NOVEL





THE FIRST EVER…A
RAVENWOOD – STEPSON OF MYSTERY NOVEL!

Airship 27 Productions, one of the leading publishers of New Pulp fiction, is thrilled to present the first ever full length novel based on the classic pulp occult detective series, Ravenwood – Stepson of Mystery by writer Micah Harris.

One of the most famous unsolved murder mysteries was the shooting death of well known actor-director, William Desmond Taylor in Hollywood circa 1922.  Nine years later, while investigating an alleged curse on German composer Wilhem Richard Wagner’s lost opera, occult detective Ravenwood uncovers a connection between the missing score and the death of the flamboyant Taylor.  He is hired to find it.

Upon arriving in Hollywood he discovers others connected to the lost opera have also perished under mysterious circumstances.  It is an arcane trail of death that leads back in time to the ancient plateaus of Lost Hyperborea and an immortal entity seeking the ultimate power to rule mankind.  As the first sound movie version of Wagner’s opera goes into production, the Stepson of Mystery races to solve Taylor’s murder before more blood is shed and the City of Dreams becomes a Nightmare Wasteland.

Says Airship 27 Productions’ Managing Editor, Ron Fortier, “This is a project we were excited about since day one when Micah Harris first suggested the plot to us.  His tying a classic pulp hero with one of the most notorious crimes in Hollywood history was sheer genius.  Then he sweetened the pot by bringing aboard renowned graphic artist Bret Blevins to do all the art, both interiors and cover, for what is a truly fantastic book.”

From the Golden Age of Hollywood to the magnificent seven ascending plateaus of Lost Hyperborea,  writer Micah Harris delivers the first ever Ravenwood – Stepson of Mystery full length novel in RETURN OF THE DUGPA.

PULP - The Art of Rob Moran



PULP!
The Art of Rob Davis

Airship 27 Productions is thrilled to announce the release of its newest title which shines the spotlight on one of the finest graphic artists in the media, Rob Davis.  Ten years ago, when the company was first launched, Davis accepted the position of Art Director and in that time has overseen the look and design of all the Airship 27 Productions novels and anthologies now numbering over a hundred.

With a background as a successful, highly respected comicbook artist, Davis quickly established himself as a gifted book illustrator when he took on that role for the company’s first titles three titles, “The Hounds of Hell,” “Brother Bones – The Undead Avenger” and “Secret Agent X – Vol One.” 

“It was always agreed our books would feature interior illustrations,” explains Airship 27 Productions’ Managing Editor, Ron Fortier.  “Having Rob Davis onboard to provide the illustrations for those early titles was such a thrill for us and a major part of our success in the burgeoning New Pulp field.”

In the ten years Davis has been associated with the company, he has done hundreds of illustrations featuring both classic and new pulp heroes to include Secret Agent X, Captain Hazzard, the Moon Man, the Black Bat and dozens of others.  In his drawings for the Airship 27 Sherlock Holmes anthology series, he’s made a reputation as one of the premier Holmes & Watson artist working today.  That was solidified when he won the first ever Pulp Factory Award in 2009 in the Best Interior Illustrations category for his work in “Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective Vol One.”

“PULP – The Art of Rob Davis,” is the first published collection of Davis’ remarkable work and contains 175 black and white pieces; all of which have appeared in the pages of various Airship 27 Productions books.   Adds Fortier, “We’ve no doubt this book will soon become a collector’s item to any true pulp fan who appreciates the role of art in the history of pulp fiction.”  The book features an Introduction by award-winning British writer I.A. Watson and Fortier provides a post-essay to round the volume.
