Greetings Loyal Airmen. Last week we gave you all the good news about the new Brother Bones Web Series now being developed and how a Facebook pg had been created dedicate to it.
At the same time we announced there would be a new Brother Bones You Tube channel put up to keep all of you posted on the progress of the web series. Thus after an hour long video conference meeting, a short video clip was done to introduce you all to the production team and here is a screen shot for you. At upper left is Producer Bryan Patterson, the guy who started all this. To upper left is his partner and co-producer Eugene Hawkins, who will be also be directing the pilot episode. To bottom left is series script writer Jeff Provine, who will be adapting our stories from the first book collection, Brother Bones the Undead Avenger. And of course that the Air Chief at bottom right. Should any of you Loyal Airmen have any questions regarding this project, please send them along and we’ll try to answer them for you in our next video Update. Stay tuned.
The pulp side of things, Airship 27 Production just released its latest title, “The Road Twice Taken” by writer R.A. Jones. This is a wonderful fantasy about a man who, towards the end of a very sad life, is given the magical opportunity to relive it…and this time get it right. When first reading/editing it, all the Air Chief saw was “It’s a Wonderful Life” by way of the Twilight Zone. “The Road Twice Taken,” is one of the finest novels the Air Chief has ever read and we recommend it highly. Art Director Rob Davis provided the cover along with 9 beautiful pencil illustrations. Available now at Amazon in paperback and by the time you are reading this, on Kindle. As ever, thanks for your continued support.
We’re sure many of you Loyal Airmen will recall the anthology “Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Was Not” that was published a few years ago and edited by Christopher Sequeira in which the Air Chief had his one and only Sherlock Holmes story, “The Locked Cell Murder.” Above is the cover to the left and to the right a beautiful illustration for my story showcasing Dr. Amelia Van Helsing, who accompanied Holmes in this story. Sadly at the last minute, the publisher opted not to include these illustrations and no one ever saw them outside we writers. Anyway, the anthology itself went on to be a profitable winner (it is still available at Amazon should you be interested) enough so that the publisher has asked Christopher to do more of these so called “what-fi” anthologies and we are delighted to report, we’ve been signed on to do a story for the next volume. This one will be focus on none other than the King of the Vampires, Dracula. Of course the caveat being, we writers have to envision this fictional character in an entirely new way. Initially we thought that might prove difficult, but within minutes of signing the contract, we had an idea way too much fun to pass up. We ran it by Christopher and he was extremely excited about it. So there you go, Loyal Airmen. What’s next on the Air Chief’s writing schedule. Oh, and at present, they are considering titling the new book, “Dracula Unfanged.” Stay tuned, more as things develop.
And lastly we are thrilled to announce the arrival of Mr. Jigsaw # 16. This one features a main story by yours truly with are by co-creator Gary Kato and a very special 8 pg back-up by writer/artist Jon Bonjour and letterer Elisa St. John. It features two supporting characters from the series, the Blimp & the Turtle in their first adventure. We think you are going to love it. The comic itself should be available from (www.IndyPlanet.com) in another few days.
And there you have it for this week, Loyal Airmen. As every thanks for stopping by and we’ll see you back here next Friday morning.
Ron – Over & Out!
