Greetings Loyal Airmen, we’ve got a new pulp book to announce this week. And if, like the Air Chief, you’re a fan of those old swashbuckling movies, then you will love this one.
“The Musketeers – New Adventures Vol One” is a collection of three brand new adventures starring Alexandre Dumas classic swordsmen, Athos, Aramis, Porthos and the you D’Artagnan. Paul Beale and Alan J. Porter provide two short stories and Joel Jenkins a full length novella. Ed Catto did all the wonderful black and white interiors and Adam Shaw painted the gorgeous cover you see above. Now available at Amazon in paperback and soon on Kindle. En Garde!! Pulp fans.
As most of you Loyal Airmen are aware, the Air Chief writes a review blog devoted to all things pulp, both old and new. Recently we reviewed the first issue of a new title “MEN’S ADVENTURE Quarterly” produced by friend Bill Cunningham and Bob Deis. It is a tribute to all those Men’s Adventure Magazines (MAMS) that filled the newstands between the 1950s and 70s. This premier issue is devoted to westerns and filled with reprints of both fiction and factual articles. All of which are wonderfully done. It is a truly beautiful package and we recommend it highly. It’s available from Amazon.
Earlier in the year we wrote a new I.V. Frost story that will be published soon by Moonstone Books. In our story, a massive train engine disappears in the woods of Vermont and Frost and his comely assistant, Jean Moray are called in to help the police. In writing the story, we had to have our detective pair travel the railroad line where the train engine disappeared from. Immediately we reached out to the train authority in our family, our oldest son, Scott. Scott grew up loving trains. We lost count of how many he now has and how many sets he’s constructed over the years. We wanted to know the name of those little train mobiles that inspectors used when checking out rails. Scott immediately replied, “Speeders.” Our next step was to find several images on-line of these vehicles and then pass them on to the publisher. He turned passed them to the artist doing the illustration for the story. It’s above to the right. He did a great job and of course, thanks Scott. We couldn’t have done it without you.
And that’s all for this week, Loyal Airmen. As ever thanks for dropping by and we’ll see you here next week.
Ron – Over & Out!
