Welcome to Airship 27

My name is Ron Fortier, and I have been a professional writer for over forty-five years. I have worked on comic book projects such as The Hulk, Popeye, Rambo and Peter Pan. With my two most popular comic series being The Green Hornet and The Terminator (with Alex Ross). With Ardath Mayhar I penned two TSR fantasy novels, and in 2001 I had my first play, a World War II romantic comedy, produced.

This site serves as a portfolio of the work I’ve done to date, as a showcase for projects in the works, and as home for my online Journal (below), which will be updated frequently.

I am currently writing and producing pulp novels and short stories for various publishers and have several movie scripts floating around Hollywood looking for a home, and if that isn’t enough, I also have a review column at the website.

Get the latest news, post your comments, questions, or just say hi at my online forum.

A devoted grandfather of six, at 68, I am thrilled to be part of the new web-comic evolution. Part of this joy is in the realization of a life long dream, that of becoming a pulp writer.

Thanks for visiting, and enjoy your stay.

Greetings Loyal Airmen, we got some fairly exciting news for all of you this week. As many of you already know, over a year ago the good people at Scaldcrow Games came to us with the offer to do a RPG (role playing game) module based on our Brother Bones the Undead Avenger stories. We happily agreed to joined up in this partnership. T Glenn Bane, the owner of Scaldcrow Games, then launched a Kickstarter campaign for RON FORTIER’S CAPE NOIRE, the title of the book module to solicit funds to produce the game.  Happily that campaign was very successful and they ended up collecting several hundred dollars above their target goal, funds that then went into bonus features. Thus for the past year and several months, Bane and his creative team, have been compiling all the date inherent in the Brother Bones books and comics and to produce the most definitive tome on the world of Cape Noire. Last week, Bane announced on Facebook that the final proofing had been completed and he and his co-editors were about to start laying out the actual book itself. Meaning, once assembled, they would soon start mailing out the finished volume to all our loyal fans who contributed to making this program such a huge success.  Note, aside from those ordered copies, as soon as the game is available for general sale, we’ll naturally let all you Loyal Airmen know where to you can go to pick up a copy.  As we said above, exciting times indeed.


Yesterday saw the release of Airship 27 Productions’ newest title, THE HYDE SEED by Michael Housel. This is only the second novella we’ve ever published. It’s a gripping story about an ex-boxer and his struggles with his inner demons. The stark cover above is by Ash Arceneaux with interiors by Pedro Cruz. Now available in paperback at Amazon and soon on Kindle. As ever, thanks for your support.


Finally, after almost a week of Spring time temperatures, breaking records in the high 70s etc. winter finally returned to Fort Collins today, spitting sleet and rain and dropping back down into the 40s.  Above is a shot of Old Town in with icy roads and snow covered trees. That’s winter in the Rockies, Loyal Airmen, unpredictable from day to day.  Thanks ever for stopping by.

Ron – Over & Out!
