MARK HALEGUA’S THE BLUE LIGHT
Airship 27 Production is extremely proud to present a very special book in memory of one of pulpdom’s most enthusiastic fans and historians, the late Mark Halegua of New York who passed away last in 2021.
In the midst of the Great Depression, Robert Ackers is an
average guy trying to earn his living as a writer living in New York City. When a strange alien medallion
comes into his possession and introduces him to an alien entity with incredible
powers, his life is altered forever.
The being “in” the medallion has the ability to turn mild
mannered Ackers into a bonafide super hero, one encased in a seven foot shell
of pure blue light. With super strength, invisibility, speed and even telepathy,
the Blue Light arrives on the scene with a bang, so become the dreaded foe of
the local mobs and a hero to the neighbor people.
But all isn’t fun and games as Ackers new career puts not
only him in danger but also those around him who he cherishes, especially his
new girlfriend, Sarah Baker. Inspired by the notes of the late Mark Halegua,
writers Nancy Hansen and Lee Houston Jr. spin a wild and crazy story that is
thrilling, humorous and always fun from the first page to the last. Art Director Rob Davis provides the cover and
artist Sam Salas the interior illustrations. The Blue Light is here to stay.
“Mark was one of the first people I met when entering the
world of pulp fandom,” related Airship 27 Managing Editor Ron Fortier. “He was
also one of the biggest New York Yankees fans in the world and when he learned
I was a Red Sox fan, well there was no stopping his amusing jabs whenever we
would hook up at pulp cons.” Over time Halegua embraced the birth of the New
Pulp movement and became one of its strongest supporters, never failing to
promote it whenever he could.
“It was Mark’s dream to become a pulp writer,” Fortier
concludes. “Nancy and Lee and the entire Airship 27 team are proud to have made
that dream a reality. Mark was a kind and loving soul and will live forever in
