CAPTAIN HAZZARD - Citadel of Fear


Airship 27 Productions & Cornerstone Book Publishers are thrilled to announce the release of the new revised edition of CAPTAIN HAZZARD – CITADEL OF FEAR by Ron Fortier & Martin Powell. Published over four years ago, when pulp scribe Fortier first began this new series of Captain Hazzard adventures, the book became an instant success as the first new Hazzard story in over 68 years!! Since then the original publisher’s dwindling inventory stock and a few on-line books sellers have been the only places fans could find this much sought-after title. Even then they were forced to pay inflated prices.

“I don’t appreciate people who take advantage of pulp fans,” Fortier said recently when asked about the exorbitant prices listed for the title at Amazon. “Which is why I’m so thrilled we have it available again.” Aside from being available at the normal book outlets, CAPTAIN HAZZARD – CITADEL OF FEAR can be purchased at the Airship 27 on-line store ( where all their titles are 25% off retail.

Both Fortier and Powell began their writing careers in the world of comics, each earning acclaim for their handling of classic pulp characters, Powell for Sherlock Holmes and Fortier for the Green Hornet. Over the past decade they have simultaneously turned to writing pulp fiction and are considered two of the finest amongst the new generation of pulp scribes. CAPTAIN HAZZARD – CITADEL OF FEAR is their one and only collaboration.

When the world’s leading scientists begin disappearing without a trace, Captain Hazzard and his team find themselves on the trail of a criminal mastermind known only as the Green Dragon. Battling an army of mind-controlled zombies, their adventure leads them to a fantastic hidden fortress of wonder and terror and a final confrontation with the forces of evil. Horror and thrills await them at every turn, all culminating within… THE CITADLE OF FEAR!

Join the fighting five; cowboy sharpshooter Jake Cole, playboy-surgeon Martin Tracey, noted physicist Washington MacGowen, ace pilot Tyler Randall, and crime reporter William Crawley, as they fellow their leader, the relentless Champion of Justice, Captain Hazzard in this pulse-pound pulp classic. Edited by Fortier with designs by Rob Davis and a breath-taking new cover painting by Laura Givens. Airship 27 Productions; Pulp Fiction for a New Genration.
