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.  As you read today’s Flight Log, Valerie and the Air Chief are still on vacation.  So, to thank you for stopping by, as promised, we thought we’d show off some artwork for up and coming projects.  Again, do keep in mind, these could be weeks or even months away from completion, but we thought you’d enjoy seeing these gorgeous pieces.

Quatermain new adventures vol2 CMYK

Our second Allan Quatermain anthology is coming along nicely and super artist Graham Hill turned in the above cover that blew us away.  Meanwhile, interior artist Clayton Hinkle is hard at work on his 12 black and white pieces that will grace this issue.


Another title in the works is our second DOMINO LADY anthology.  Like the first this one will have gorgeous interior illustrations by James Lyle.  Above is one such illo.


Another anthology in the works is MYSTERY MEN (& Women) Vol. 4 No cover has been set for this one yet, but our own Rob Davis is providing the glorious interior pieces. This volume will feature stories by B.C. Bell, Joel Jenkins, Craig Russette and Thomas Deja.


Last year we released a western called GUN GLORY by writer R.A. Jones. It featured a civil war vet named Jason Mankiller.  Now R.A. has written a sequel called COMANCHE BLOOD and that’s the cover above, as painted by the amazing Adam Shaw.  Artist Chris Kohler is now busy at work on the interiors.


Finally, the special HOLMES & HOUDINI novel written by I.A. Watson is ready to be published as soon as we get in Chad Hardin’s cover.  As you might recall, we printed up 15 copies of this volume and sold them as special Collector’s Editions at this year’s PulpFest.  Above is one of Rob Davis’ brilliant illustrations. Believe me, Loyal Airmen, we are truly anxious to get in Chad’s cover and get this book out. It is a great story.

And there you have, Loyal Airmen. Just a few of the exciting new projects coming your way from Airship 27 Productions.  As ever thanks for stopping by and next week, back in the office, Ye Old Air Chief should be.

Ron – Over and Out!
