Airship27

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 www.pulpfictionreviews.blogspot.com website.

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

A devoted grandfather of six, at 71, 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.

MARTY QUADE PRIVATE EYE

15 Feb | '2019

Greeting Loyal Airmen, one again, Airship 27 Productions has released a brand new title.

Air-191

During the days of the classic pulps, one of the finest mystery magazines on the stands was 10 DETECTIVE ACES.  Among the revolving series that appeared in that monthly were the cases of tough guy private eye Marty Quade as written by Emile C. Tepperman whose career went from 1933 to 1942.  His most remembered work has been the Purple Invasion Series for Operator 5. Little is known about Mr. Tepperman. He was credited for writing radio broadcasts for programs such as Suspense and Gang Busters. Other than that, his life remains a mystery.

Now Airship 27 Productions is thrilled to bring back this classic pulp character in four brand new adventures written by Gordon Dymowski, Chris Bell, Gene Moyers and Michael Black. From a missing pulp writer to spies on a military base, gumshoe Quade finds himself knee deep in hot dames, flying fists, and lethal lead. But Quade is no ordinary shamus, with both a quick wit and street-smart survival skills; he almost always solves the case.

Brian Loner provides 12 black and white interior illustrations while Airship 27 Productions’ own award Winning Art Director, Rob Davis, the cover, which is our homage to that old classic pulp mag.  As ever book is available from Amazon in both paperback and on Kindle. Thanks always for your support, Loyal Airmen.

The Air Chief is also excited to tell you that we’ve begun work on our third Domino Lady anthology and once again two of the finest artists in New Pulp will be on board.  James Lyle will be providing the 12 black and white interior pieces (that’s his work in the middle above) and Ted Hammond is doing the new cover. Domino Lady was one of the very few female masked avengers during the classic days of the pulps. She is a great character we are thrilled to be bringing all of you her newest adventures.

Flyer-2018

Recently while strategizing how to market Airship 27 books, Art Director Rob Davis came up with this flyer. We are now giving it out to all our writers and artists to post freely anywhere they want to. Any Loyal Airmen reading this, feel free to do the same…and thanks.

Finally, we thought you Loyal Airmen would like to see some of the new additions to our office. We’ve a nice collection of tin plates, all reflecting something we have interest in.  The three newest feature Captain America, our favorite comic book hero, King Kong, our favorite movie of all time and Marilyn Monroe, one of our favorite stars from the days of classic Hollywood.

The new Wonder Woman print was a Christmas gift and we’re happy to have it up finally.  As well as the Red Sox parking sign given to us from our oldest son, Scott. As you can see, clutter rules in our inner sanctum and inspires us daily with new ideas. We hope all you Loyal Airmen have similar fun decorations and toys.  See you next week.

Ron – Over & Out!
