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.

A devoted grandfather of six, at 75, 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, this week’s Flight Log is a truly special one for the Air Chief. You see, just a few days ago, as you read this, our granddaughter, Cora, married her best friend, Calvin Hyland in a beautiful ceremony at a local vineyard.


Cora and Calvin met in high school and began their love story as simply good friends. Then as time went by, that genuine friendship evolved into something more; something truly precious. And so love grew and this Wednesday, they tied the knot pledging their loyalty and devotion to one another forever.


Members of Valerie’s family flew in at the start of the week and Tuesday night, after rehearsals were finished, we took them to a local restaurant for dinner. Going around the table, left to right, we have Adeline, Desiree, Ronnie, Barbara, Cora (bride), Kailen, Rory, the Air Chief, Val, Calvin (groom) Gus, Annette and Chris. To say all of us had a fun time would be totally obvious. Everyone was thrilled and excited that night, knowing the following Wed afternoon would be a day we’d all remember.


And so the BIG DAY arrived Wed afternoon and Cora Horne became Mrs. Calvin Hyland. Calvin is a member of the National Guard and looked handsome in his uniform while Cora was a dazzling bride. In the photo about, in the foreground are her parents, Nicole & Alan Horne, and way in right background in the blue shirt with white hair, is Roger Bagiga, Nicole’s dad. Oh, the smiling dude in the black robe in the left is one happy Air Chief who had the singular honor of officiating. It was a day all of us will remember forever. Thank you Lord Jesus. Amen.



And while the Air Chief was busy with family fun, Airship 27 Art Director was busy getting our latest title ready for release. THE CHALLENGER CHRONICLES is our first in a new anthology series featuring the adventures of Arthur Conan Doyle’s “other” famous hero, Prof. George Challenger, first appearing in Doyle’s classic “The Lost World.” In this new collection, writers Gordon Dymowski, Barbara Doran, Michale Panush and Samantha Lienhart send the good professor on a quartet of fast paced pulp adventures. Artist Clayton Hinkle turned in all interior illustrations along with this exciting color cover. We hope you Loyal Airmen will give it a look. Available now at Amazon in paperback and shortly on Kindle. As ever, thanks for your continued support.

And there you have it for this wild and crazy week, Loyal Airmen. As ever, thanks so much for stopping by. Take care and stay well.

Ron – Over & Out!
