PRESS RELEASE MASKED RIDER
SADDLE UP FOR ADVENTURE
Airship 27 Productions & Cornerstone Book Publishers are saddling up to bring their readers three rip-roaring yarns of gun-blazing justice from out of the Old West. One of the hallmark genres of the early pulps were the many western titles available to readers. Heroes like the Masked Rider and many others rode the plains month after month in wild and wooly six-gun tales.
In the years immediately following the Civil War, the land west of the great Mississippi River was a lawless frontier being shaped by the courageous men and women who ventured there in hopes of finding a better life. What they found was a vast wilderness exploited by outlaws, drifters and cattle barons who made their own law at the end of a gun. Caught in the middle were the brave and noble Native American people, struggling to survive against this tide of so-called civilization.
A rare breed of men took on the challenge of bringing justice the west; men like the mysterious Masked Rider, Virgil Earp and Wild Bill Hickok. These were men who cast their long shadows over western history and went on to become legends. Now writers Eric Jones, Tommy Hancock and Aaron Smith bring us their adventures in three fast paced, no-holds barred shoot’em ups wherein it’s good versus evil on the dusty streets and rolling plains of this big country.
The Masked Rider and his blood-brother, Blue Hawk, must stop a gang of outlaws from taking over an entire town in The Raid on Granite Gap, while Virgil Earp walks a gauntlet of blood to rescue his kidnapped wife in Crossing Contention, and finally Wild Bill tries to stop two men of honor from destroying each other in The Long Trail of Vengeance. This title features a cover by Rob Davis and Shane Evans with interior illustrations by Nick Miller.
So load your six shooters, pilgrims and saddle up for western action Airship 27 style; Pulp Fiction for a New Generation!
