Welcome to Airship 27

My name is Ron Fortier, and I have been a professional writer for over thirty-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.

Firework streaks in night sky, celebration background

Greetings Loyal Airmen, we truly hope all of you had a great Thanksgiving and were able to share it with friends, family and loved ones. And that you took a little time during your day to give thanks to all our brave men and women far from home on these holidays protect our country and our cherished freedom.  By now some of you must be wondering why the Air Chief chose that celebration image above to kick off this week’s Flight Log. Well, earlier in the week we were given some truly awesome news. As many of you will recall, this past year we had to miss attending the Rocky Mountain Con due to a scheduling conflict.  RMC is our Home Con, and in its third year…and we truly hated not being there with all our fellow Colorado comics pals. To that end, we asked con promoter, Tim Moret, to give us an early heads up on the date of the show for 2016 and he did just that.  The 2016 Rocky Mountain Con will be held on the 5th & 6th of Nov.  Upon seeing that, we shouted out, “Wahooo!” Why? Well because Nov 5ht is out birthday and on that day next year the Air Chief will turn 70! And honestly, we can’t think of a better place to celebrate that momentous day then at RMC with all our comic amigos.  Wahooo…indeed!


Finally, after almost a year and a half in production, we are thrilled to announce the release of our newest Airship 27 Productions pulp anthology, “The Amazing Harry Houdini.” This awesome books starts perhaps the most famous magician-escape artist of all time in four fictional adventures set against the backdrop of his world tour that took place in 1924. The first two stories are set in London and written by Jim Beard and James Palmer, the third has Houdini in Paris by I.A. Watson and finally writer Roman Leary puts him on the Nord Express bound for Berlin. The cover art is by Carl Yonder with beautiful interior illustrations by Pedro Cruz. To say we are proud as punch about this book would be a gross understatement. As ever it is now available at in both hard copy and on Kinle….and eventually some time next year as yet another of our Airship 27 Audio titles. Now let’s see you Loyal Airmen escape from that much fun and adventure.


So look what came in the mail a few days ago!  Our copies of Airship 27 presents = ALL STAR PULP COMICS # 3.  The Air Chief has some good reading ahead.

And there you have it, Loyal Airmen, the start of the holiday season is upon us. Stay warm, be nice to people, especially store clerks. Never hurts to be polite and gracious to others. You’d be surprised at the dividends a smile can bring.

Ron – Over & Out!
