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 73, 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.


A few years ago I wrote a short western story called “The Quiet Place” for Scaldcrow Games and delighted to announce the book is now available at the link below.–Characters-and-Stories-for-Wild-West-Horse-Opera?src=newest. If you’re into rpgs, you might want to check this out.


Meanwhile we’re thrilled to announced the released of our latest title, SHERLOCK HOLMES – Conulting Detective Vol 17. We showed you a sneak peek of the cover, and here it is complete with logo etc as drawn by artist Chris Rawding and designed by Art Director Rob Davis, who in turn did all the 12 black and white interior illustrations. Writers I.A. Watson, R.A. Jones, Jon Casey and George Tackes provide the brand new mysteries in this volume. And it is now available at Amazon in both paperback and on Kindle. As always, thanks so much for your continued support.



Prior to the start of 2019, we at Airship 27 Productions had stocked up our inventory to handle the shows we hoped to attend later that year. When the Covid shut-down happened, we were left with those books still in their boxes. Then as the year continued, we went and produced another twenty new titles, none of which ever saw a convention table. All our considerable 2020 sales, for which we thank all our loyal supporters, were done via on-line ordering from Amazon. Now here we are in 2021 and in Sept., after a year and a half absence, Airship 27 will be in attendance at the Windy City Paper & Pulp Convention. This, though a really wonderful thing, presents us with a huge problem.  1) How do we sell all that back inventory? and 2) which of the new books should be bring with us? After examining lots of various options available to us, Airship 27 has decided on turning this challenge into a fantastic sales opportunity for you, our loyal fans.

All new titles on our tables at the con will sell for $12.  That’s a saving of $3 per book off the convention price and $5 off suggested retail. We will also have our Bargain Box containing those titles over three years old which, as always, will sell for $4 each. But we simply cannot bring every single title we’ve released since 2019 and that’s where we need your help in a big way. If you are planning on attending Windy City and plan on taking advantage of this one time only Airship 27 blow-out sale, then you will need to visit our website and there pick those titles you want to buy from us. Then you need to e-mail Art Director Rob Davis ( with your list of those titles.  Rob will order just those books under your name and we will have them at the show specifically for you. Here is the link to our site. (

Your request should be in to Rob no later than 14th Aug. allowing us three weeks before the con start of 9th Sept.

And that’s all for this week Loyal Airmen, as always, thanks for stopping by and we’ll see you back here next week.

Ron Over & Out!
