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, as most of you know the Air Chief meets once a month with a group of comic fans and professionals here in Fort Collins, CO once a month. Many of our group are so talented. One such is custom toy maker Jesse Bonavazi. Earlier today, at our June hook up, he surprised the Air Chief with three figures he’d been secretly working on.


Here’s one of Brother Bones, the Undead Avenger, with twin .45s.


And here’s the gorilla mobster, Harry Beest, with his favorite machine gun.


And not to be left out was our own Mr. Jigsaw, man of a thousand parts.


And here’s Jesse withe the Air Chief. We have the coolest friends in the whole world. Now to find a special place on my shelves with these amazing new toys.


In other exciting news, we’ve just released volume # 5 DANSEUSE, in writer Nancy Hansen’s amazing pirate saga Jezebel Johnston. In this one Jez finds herself aboard a French ship raid off the Barbary Coast.  Art Director Rob Davis handles the wonderful interior illustrations, while Pulp Factory Award winning artist Ted Hammond turns in his second cover for this series; which we love. As ever the book is available at Amazon in both paperback and on Kindle.


And for those of you Loyal Airmen who may have come in late, we actually collected the first four Jezebel Johnstone novels into one big omnibus volley called BIRTH OF A BUCCANEER and it too is available at Amazon.  We aim to please.

And there you have it for this week, Loyal Airmen.  Note there will be no new Flight Log on the 14th of this month as Valerie and the Air Chief will be on vacation back in New England for a visit with friends and family. But rest assured, we’ll see you all back here on the 21st. Till then, be well and enjoy the summer.

Ron – Over & Out!
