New Green Lama anthology released!

Airship 27 Productions and Cornerstone Book Publishers are thrilled to launch their latest pulp anthology; The Green Lama, Master of the Mystics Arts.

Created by Kendal Foster Crossen back in 1940 for Double Detective Magazine, the character was intended to be competition for Street & Smith’s Shadow title. When wealthy young socialite, Jethro Dumont traveled to Tibet, it was in search of enlightenment and purpose for his life. These he found plus a very rare and unique talent for the mystic arts. Empowered by powerful, arcane abilities, he has set forth on a new and bolder path, one of truth and justice. With his Buddhist sensibilities, Jethro Dumont became the most unique and memorable pulp hero of them all, The Green Lama.

In order to protect his identity, Dumont created a second false persona, that of Buddhist Dr. Pali. Aided by young starlet Jean Farrell and Detective Caraway, the The Green Lama thrilled readers young and old in both his pulp and comic book adventures.

Now he returns in three all new adventures written by today’s action-adventure scribes,

Kevin Noel Olson, Adam Garcia and Peter Miller. From the mountain tops of hidden Tibet to the streets of New York and the glitter of Hollywood, journey with this classic pulp icon as he once more battles the wicked in defense of the weak and innocent.

Features twelve new black and white illustrations by Jay Piscopo with a cover by Mike Fyles. Edited by Ron Fortier with designs by Rob Davis. “Om Mani Padme Hum.”

Ha, you beat me to it, posting this, Kevin. Thanks a million. All of us at Airship 27 Prod. are truly excited about this book and anxious to get it out to the fans. The actual book should be up at our Lulu store early this afternoon for sale.

Green Lama Volume 1

By some snafu, the cover at the Lulu store is the alternate cover with the dirigible logo up next to the title. It is not the official book cover and will be replaced with the one you see here, having the airship lowered. Anyone buying the book with alternate featured will get a rare collectible copy because once we remove it off the store site, we will not be offering it again.

Alrightee, the official cover is now up and the alternate is history. Thanks one and all.

The K.N.O. said...

Darn! Alternative cover? I shoulda bought one.... ;,)
