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 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.

Greetings Loyal Airmen. Thus far 2018 has been a really good year for both Airship 27 Productions and the Air Chief flying solo. The Windy City Pulp & Paper con was our best ever and it was followed by a stellar Denver Comic Fest and Free Comic Book Day. All to say the Air Chief pretty depleted his inventory stock of books. What with two local conventions coming up soon, the Estes Park show and the Fort Collins Comic Con, it was time we restocked. So weeks ago we put in a new order and today three big, heave books of our books arrived in the mail. Oh yeah. Pooped us out just carrying them into the house. Ha. Here’s hoping the two upcoming shows continued the selling trend and force us to order even more stock by the end of the year.


Over the past year, we’ve been enjoying Netflix a great deal as part of our nightly television viewing. Aside from the Marvel Comics original series, we’ve also appreciated many foreign shows such a Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries from Australia. Starring Essie Davis, the stories are set in Melbourne in the years right after World War One, and Miss Fisher is a private eye and often a pain in Inspector Richardson’s butt. Based on a series of bestselling novels, the production values are simply amazing what with costume, old cars etc.etc. We just wrapped up season one this week and have started watching two. If you like old fashion who-dunnits and are lucky enough to have Netflix, we highly recommend this show.

Finally it’s been almost two weeks since my successful cataract surgery. Life without eye glasses has been a really wonderful experience, though by habit the Air Chief still finds himself reaching for them….even though they are not there. We’ll eventually get use to this glasses-free life. And there you have this week’s Flight Log. As ever, thanks for stopping by and we’ll catch you next week.

Ron – Over & Out!
