Greetings Loyal Airmen. Well after no really snow here in Fort Collins, Mother Nature opted to wait until the last day of the year, Friday, 31st of Dec. to give us some white stuff.
Above the view of our front yard through my office window. The snow fell steadily all day and into the night, i.e. New Year’s Eve. Then awakening this morning, we found ourselves buried under a good seven inches. The Air Chief had to don his winter boots, clean up the car so that we could attend mass, this being a Holy Day of Obligation for we Catholics. The drive was a bit tricky, but we made it fine. Then after getting home, the weather cleared up and the sun reappeared. As you can see by the pix above, it is now doing its thing and melting has begun. But winter is officially with us.
BEYOND THE STARS
Artist Andrea Bormida continues his amazing work with a completed Pg # 4. Coming out of her nightmare, the All Mother, by her cries, awakens the holographic house keeper Abode, who inquires as to her condition.
Then our story shifts to an archeological expedition led by Prof. Yonel Travane studying the remains of an alien settlement. Among his team is the half-cyborg Is-Brt. Her augmented strength helps in carrying fresh supplies into the storage hut.
On the pulp front, Airship 27 Production released its first new title for 2022. “Sherlock Holmes and the Adventure of the Iron Crown” by Ray Lovato & Michael Black. Above is the watercolor cover by Morgan Fitzsimons and one of the spot illustrations by Art Director Rob Davis. This books features a special “Bonus” section by Rob detailing some history behind those illustrations. The book is of course available at Amazon in both paperback and on Kindle. Last year we produced 23 books, 22 original titles and one reprint collection.
Meanwhile Rob also continues to do the illustrations for our novel “CAPE NOIRE – A Beest & Beauty Tale” ala the illo above at the left. In this prequel novel to our Brother Bones series, we tell the full story on how mobster Harry Beest (above center) had his brain cut out and put in the body of a silverback gorilla. It’s a story we’ve waited over ten years to tell fully.
And that’s our Flight Log for this week Loyal Airmen. As ever thanks for dropping by and we’ll see you back here next Friday.
Ron – Over & Out!
