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.

Greetings Loyal Airmen.  Ever since the Air Chief and Art Director Rob Davis began Airship 27 Productions eleven years ago, we’ve done our best to produce new pulp novels and titles in as timely a fashion as we could. On average we do between 18 and 20 new books a year.  Well, as of this week, we’ve broken a new record here at Airship 27 by producing and releasing 3 books in 3 weeks.  Two weeks ago we released Fred Adams’ “HITWOLF 2 The Pack.”  Then last week we released “Rick Lai’s MAJOR SABBATH.” And now comes as yet another new book.


“Dead Man’s Melody” is the start of a brand new mystery series by Fred Adams Jr. As you can see, he is one prolific writer.  It takes place in the world of rock & roll and when a famous 70s rock star is found murdered in his studio, musician Sam Dunne gets involved because the police see him as their top suspect. This is a gripping tale and features interior art by Richard Jun, a new artist to Airship 27 and a wonderfully designed cover by Rob Davis.  Oh, and the model who posed for that gruesome, blood stained hand was….Ye Old Air Chief.  Yup.  Anyways, we hope you’ll give “Dead Man’s Melody” a try, we don’t think you’ll be disappointed.  As ever available at Amazon in both paperback and on Kindle.


While pre-production continues to roll along for the Brother Bones movie and here are two more of Rob Davis’ excellent character sketches.  Above we have Judy, the teenage prostitute integral to the creation of Brother Bones and then Cape Noire’s own mad scientist, Prof. Bugosi.


Next up is Prof. Bugosi’s manservant, the brute Waldo and Mob Boss Topper Wyld’s beautiful young daughter, Alexis Wyld who will one day inherit his criminal empire. Will be interesting to see who these sketches match up with the live actors chosen to play the parts.


And finally, tonight the Valerie and the Air Chief are looking forward to a special night in Denver.  We’ve gotten tickets to go see singer Josh Groban, one of our favorites, performing at the Pepsi Center.  One of our nephews is an executive with Pepsi and knowing of our fondness for this amazing singer, was able to get us these great tickets.  Should be lots of fun.

And there you have it, Loyal Airmen, till next weekend, thanks as ever for stopping by and enjoy these fleeting last days of summer.

Ron – Over and Out!
