Greetings Loyal airmen, the Air Chief is really excited to announce our first Airship 27 Productions title of 2018. As the book was released Wed night, 31st of Jan, we actually did get a book out in January. Now that’s what we call just in the nick of time. Those of you who follow this Flight Log will remember that 2017 also started up rather slowly and then picked up speed as the year wore on. So let’s see if 2018 repeats that pattern.
Our first title of 2018 is Vol Six in our highly popular Secret Agent X series. As one of the classic pulp heroes of the 30s and 40s, Secret Agent X has always been a winner with us since we first began producing his brand new adventures for a new generation unaware of the original pulps. In this exciting entry, we have a full length novella by Fred Adams Jr, and then two regular shorts; one by veteran X scribe and the other by a new writer to Airship 27, Kaushik Karforma. In fact Kaushik’s tale, “Escape From Zakopane” is the featured cover scene as done by Art Director Rob Davis, who also did the black and white interior illustrations. Both of us love this character and are thrilled whenever we get a new book out. As ever, it is available at Amazon in both paperback and Kindle. We hope you’ll check it out and thanks for your continued support.
This next section is best described as TAKE CARE OF YOURSELVES LOYAL AIRMEN. Back in Dec. the Air Chief had his annual physical. At that time our Family Doctor noted it had been six years since we had our last colonoscopy. That being the case, and the fact that we remain in really good health and want to stay that way, she suggested it was time for me to have another done. The Air Chief is well aware of the extremely high rate of colon cancer in men in this country and the sad truth is, many die who could have been saved if they had had this test done. And so we wasted no time in making an appointment. Early this week we went to the local clinic and the Air Chief had his second colonoscopy done. As last time, a polyp was discovered…and easily removed. It has been sent to the lab for testing, but the doctor who removed it felt relatively certain it was a typical polyp men our age develop. And so, we were given a “well done” and sent on our way. We mention this because we still have good friends and colleagues past their 50s who have yet to have this simple text done. They are really risking their lives and that is truly sad. Ergo, this posting. Please, to all our Loyal Airmen, if you are beyond the age of 50 years old and have never had a colonoscopy, go schedule one right now. We’d like you to be around with us for a long long time yet.
Thanks, the Air Chief.
Finally for all you Brother Bones fans out there, last week the Air Chief finished his third collection of Brother Bones stories which will soon be published in book form as BROTHER BONES – CITY OF LOST SOULS. The book contains our longest Bones tale yet penned, “The Synthetic Man” wherein our Undead Avenger crosses paths with the legendary pulp villain, Doctor Satan. Also this week we were happy to announce that super artist Michael Stribling will be providing the cover for this new book. Stay tuned for me news as the project moves along.
And that’s it for this Flight Log, Happy February to you all,
Ron – Over & Out!
