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.

Dear Loyal Airmen, you cannot possibly how happy the Air Chief is these days.  After three long years, we finally completed our fifth Captain Hazzard pulp novel, “Custer’s Ghost” and it is now on sale at Amazon in paperback and on Kindle. It’s rousing action-adventure where the Champion of Justice teams up with another classic pulp hero, Jim Anthony, Super Detective.  Pal and Airship 27 Art Director Rob Davis provided the great interior illustrations and the truly talented Pat Carbajal contributed that stunning cover seen above here. And so it is out and we really hope all you Loyal Airmen will pick up a copy and give it a read. Then write and tell us it was worth the wait. As ever, thanks so much for your continued support.


Years ago when we first started Airship 27 Productions, we thought it would be cool to open up a Cafe Press shop and offer items some of you Loyal Airmen might want to have, ala coffee cups, tee-shirts or the super cool baseball cap above.  The Air Chief had one of these it wore it until it pretty much fell apart.  We were reminded the shop is still up and active a few days ago when one of our Loyal Airmen wrote to say he had just ordered one.  Too cool. And as we are getting into the Christmas season we thought it only appropriate to post the link to that shop here.  (  Trust the Air Chief, you’ll look super cool in this cap announcing to the world you are a Loyal Airmen.


The third and final issue of Moonstone Comics GUNS OF THE BLACK BAT hits the comic shop shelves next week, 7th Dec. Features art by the amazing Sivestre Szlagyi with script by the Air Chief.  We hope you’ll check it out. Cover by Michael Stribling.

As many of you will recall, last month the Air Chief celebrated his 70th birthday while being a guest at the Rocky Mountain Con.  While there a video outfit stopped by our table to do an interview which has now been posted to You Tube.  You can find it here. (

And that’s it for our first Dec. Flight Log, Loyal Airmen, as ever, thanks for stopping by and we’ll be back next week.

Ron – Over & Out!
