AIRSHIP 27 PRODUCTIONS
Presents
SHERLOCK HOLMES MYSTERIES Vol 2
By Aaron Smith


Airship 27 Productions is thrilled be offering its second Kindle only collection of Sherlock Holmes adventures; this time by writer Aaron Smith.  Our best selling book series continues to be our highly popular “Sherlock Holmes – Consulting Detective,” of which seven volumes have been published and the eight is on the way.

Several of our writers have been regular contributors to this series such as Andrew Salmon, I.A. Watson and Aaron Smith.  Last year we collected many of Watson’s pieces in a Kindle only edition called, “Sherlock Holmes Mysteries, Vol One,” and it has been a huge success.  Kindle owners have supported the book beyond our own hopes.  Enough so that it was time to put out a second collection and this time our spotlight is on Aaron Smith’s excellent stories.

We hope our Holmes fans old and new will check this out.  Again, you can only get this on Kindle, whereas all the stories themselves are available in the printed books.

BROTHER BONES - THE MOVIE



BROTHER BONES: THE MOVIE

Franklin-Husser Entertainment LLC is thrilled to announce that they have reached out to New Pulp publisher Airship 27 in order to option the rights to Ron Fortier's character, Brother Bones, for an upcoming feature film.

“Brother Bones the Undead Avenger is a character I created over ten years ago,” Fortier recalls. “I just wanted to do my own homage to such great gun-totting vigilantes like the Shadow and the Spider. Little did I realize he would become so popular with our readers. They are forever clamoring for more of his macabre adventures.”

“New Pulp has such untapped potential,” co-founder Erik Franklin said. “There are so many vibrant, original characters that would be perfect for a cinematic adaption. Brother Bones has all that you could want in a story: exciting visuals, well-drawn characters, and each page is a cliff-hangar.”

“When Erik first showed me the book I immediately thought that Brother Bones would make a great movie.” Daniel Husser, co-founder of Franklin-Husser Entertainment LLC, commented. “The story is dark and full of action so it's perfect for us. Since we are working with Ron Fortier's creation, it is absolutely important to us that we stay faithful to the text. Many adaptations tend to change too much, damaging the original concept and we don't want that to happen.”

“It was very important to us to get Brother Bone's creator, Ron Fortier, involved with the project. He cares very much about his characters, and he only wants the best products to be associated with Brother Bones and Airship 27.” Erik said. “To that end, we discussed story possibilities at length, and we have determined what we think will be a great cinematic entrance for Brother Bones into the pantheon of cinematic heroes.”

A two minute test video was made and sent to Fortier to view.  “It virtually blew me away,” Fortier says. “Erik and Daniel had condensed in just two minutes what it had taken me almost four chapters to establish. They immediately captured the essence of the character and watching him come to life in that clip convinced me these two guys are going to make a fantastic Brother Bones feature. I couldn’t be more excited.”

The film is in its early planning stages, with the script being written by Ron Fortier and Erik Franklin. Seattle, Washington will double for Cape Noire, the setting in the Brother Bones novels. More details will be announced from Airship 27 and Franklin-Husser Entertainment LLC as they happen.

“This is going to be a big step forward for both our companies, and we look forward to presenting Brother Bones on the silver screen.” said Erik.

THE TOWERS OF METROPOLIS



AIRSHIP 27 PRODUCTIONS
Returns to –
METROPOLIS

Airship 27 Productions is proud to announce the release of their newest title, “The Towers of Metropolis,” a prequel anthology based on silent sci-fi movie.

In 1927 German filmmaker Fritz Lang brought to the screen one of the most ground breaking sci-fi melodramas of all time based on the screenplay he co-wrote with his wife, novelist Thea von Harbou.  Set in a futuristic urban dystopia, the story follows the attempts of Freder, the son of the city’s ruler, and Maria, a citizen of the lower levels, to bridge the gulf separating the economic classes of the city. It is regarded as a classic and one of the first full-length movies in the genre.

“I first saw the film at the World Science Fiction Convention years ago,” reports Airship 27 Productions’ Managing Editor, Ron Fortier.  “It simply blew me away.  That a film this sophisticated and brilliant could be realized during the earliest days of movie making was astounding. Those images of that futuristic city and its underlying cautionary tale simply became a part of me. I never forgot them. To put together this anthology and revisit that world has been something truly special for all of us here at Airship 27. We hope our fans will enjoy our efforts here.”

Now five visionary new pulp writers have envisioned four dramatic tales which unfold in this amazing world prior to the events of that film. The book begins with a special introductory essay by author Fred Lang, Jr. and then William & Michael Maynard join forces with Michael Panush, Kevin Noel Olson and Erik Franklin to guide readers back to those vaulted, shining Towers of Metropolis in this new collection inspired by Lang’s masterpiece.

Award winning Metropolis enthusiast Michael Kaluta provides the cover with artist Pedro Cruz offering twelve amazing interior illustrations.  All beautifully assembled by Airship 27 Art Director Rob Davis to create a book any fan of the film will want for their personal library.

Metropolis is something truly unique in the annals of science fiction history,” Fortier concludes. “I believe we’ve done it justice with The Towers of Metropolis.
