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.

Greeting Loyal Airmen, after a week long vacation in Fort Myer’s Florida, Valerie and the Air Chief are once again back home.  It was a fun vacation, but wow, those first two days there we experience record breaking cold as the temp dipped to the 30s at the start of the week, pretty much killing any plans we had of going up to Orlando and doing the theme parks.


So instead of that, we bundled up in our sweatshirts and headed for the brand new Jet Blue park where our beloved Red Sox were just starting to report in for this year’s Spring Training.  Here’s a shot of the Air Chief and Val huddled together in front of the Ted Williams statue in front of the new ballpark which is an exact replica of Boston’s own Fenway Park.  We are both very, very anxious to see baseball start up again and hoping the Sox will have a bounce back season.

The rest of the week did warm up and we made it to the Fort Myer’s beach where we hooked up with our sister, Ann and her husband Norman for a fun day. Always great to see family again.  Then yesterday, Tuesday, we packed up and headed up.  Of course our luck continued to be sour as we had a three hour delay in Indianapolis and didn’t get home until after midnight.  Vacations are fun, but they are also most tiring.


After a good night’s sleep, we looked through the mail that had accumulated in our absences and the Air Chief was happy to find the latest issue of PAPERBACK PARADE published by our pal, writer Gary Lovisi.  Its jam packed with tons of great articles about old paperback series and a few reviews of today’s books.  Amongst this issue’s articles is one on the old space opera paperback series from Daw Books, CAP KENNEDY.  As the Air Chief was a collector/fan of those books, Gary had asked us to write up a little article to accompany the checklist and we were happy to oblige him. This is a nifty little publication and we recommend it highly.


And finally Airship 27 Productions has released its third title of the year, THE SHADOW OF HER SMILE, a vampire horror novel by writer Jack Beddows.  It features stunning artwork by artist Adam Shaw, both cover and interior illustrations with Art Director Rob Davis handling book design.  The title is now available at Amazon in both hard-copy and on Kindle, as well as a $3 pdf from the Airship 27 home page.  We hope you’ll check it out.

And that’s it for this week, Loyal Airmen.  As ever, thanks for stopping by and let’s all hope for an early Spring.

Ron – Over & Out!
