Airship 27 Productions
MARTY QUADE PRIVATE DETECTIVE Volume 1
Now available!

During the days of the classic pulps, one of the finest mystery magazines on the stands was 10 DETECTIVE ACES.  Among the revolving series that appeared in that monthly were the cases of tough guy private eye Marty Quade as written by Emile C. Tepperman whose career went from 1933 to 1942.  His most remembered work has been the Purple Invasion Series for Operator 5. Little is known about Mr. Tepperman. He was credited for writing radio broadcasts for programs such as Suspense and Gang Busters. Other than that, his life remains a mystery.

Now Airship 27 Productions is thrilled to bring back this classic pulp character in four brand new adventures written by Gordon Dymowski, Chris Bell, Gene Moyers and Michael Black. From a missing pulp writer to spies on a military base, gumshoe Quade finds himself knee deep in hot dames, flying fists, and lethal lead. But Quade is no ordinary shamus, with both a quick wit and street-smart survival skills; he almost always solves the case.

Brian Loner provides 12 black and white interior illustrations while Airship 27 Productions’ own award Winning Art Director, Rob Davis, the cover, which is our homage to that old classic pulp mag. 

Available from Amazon and on Kindle.

Airship 27 Productions
THE RETURN OF BULLDOG DRUMMOND
Now available!

Airship 27 Productions is thrilled to announce the return of one of pulpdom’s most well known heroes, Bulldog Drummond, in “On Poisoned Ground” by writer I.A. Watson.

London 2018 - Upon his discharge from the military, Captain Hugh “Bulldog” Drummond finds civilian life boring. He post an ad in the London Times explaining his desire to find new adventures. Much to his surprise, he gets much more than he could have ever bargained for and soon finds himself battling an evil genius bent on destroying all of London. This is a threat he can’t possibly win alone and soon he has recruited his former S.A.S team, unique men with special skills that just might save the day.

“This is  a brand new version of a classic hero, reinvented for our times and jam-packed with suspense, thrills and danger enough to fill a half dozen books,” reports Airship 27 Productions’ Managing Editor Ron Fortier. “The original Bulldog Drummond was created by H.C. McNeile and published under his pen name "Sapper". Following McNeile's death in 1937, the novels were continued by Gerard Fairlie. The character has appeared in novels, short stories, on the stage, in films, on radio and television, and in graphic novels.”

Last year Fortier was approached by one of his Airship 27 writers from India who was a fan of the character and inquired if it would be possible to revive him as a New Pulp hero. Fortier immediately reached out to British author, I.A. Watson, a writer known for his exhaustive research in any project he undertakes. “Ian thought the idea was worth pursuing and ultimately discovered the property was indeed public domain,” Fortier continues. “After several long letters on how to do the character properly, both of us agreed a new, modern interpretation was called for. At which point I gave Ian the green light to write the first adventure in what we hope will be a long running series at Airship 27 Productions.”

“Bulldog Drummond – On Poisoned Ground,” features black and white interior illustrations by professional graphic illustrator, Howard Simpson, and sports a wonderful cover by Canadian Ted Hammond. The book design was by Art Director Rob Davis. The story is a roller-coaster ride of action and adventure. Fortier concludes, “Once you open page one, you will not be able to put this book down.”

Airship 27 Productions
FRED ADAMS JR. - PULP WRITER
Now available!

Airship 27 Productions is proud to showcase the work of New Pulp’s most talented and prolific writer, Fred Adams Jr.  A retired college teacher, Adams burst on the New Pulp scene several years ago with his novel “Hitwolf,” from Airship 27 Productions. It tells the story of a Green Beret captured by Mob in the 1970s and turned into a werewolf assassin.

“The concept is so what pulp is all about,” claims Airship 27 Productions Managing Editor, Ron Fortier, “that when I first read the concept I was euphoric. We couldn’t publish it fast enough. Later Fred sent me his very first novel, a mystery entitled, ‘Dead Man’s Melody,’ and we happily put that out.” What Fortier didn’t realize at the time was both books were intended to be the first entries in on-going series.

By the time Adams had submitted “Six-Gun Terrors,” a story about two Texas cowboys who encounter supernatural monsters, the writer’s master goal had become obvious.  “He wanted to produce as many on-going series as he was capable of writing,” Fortier explains.

Following on the heels of those first three series debuts, Adams then offered up C.O. Jones, a World War II veteran who, during the war years, belonged to an elite squad that dealt primarily with magical threats to the Allies.  After several C.O. Jones novels, came
 “The Eye of Quang Chi,” a mystery set in San Francisco during the turn of the century and starring the co-joined Chinese-American Smith Brothers.

Adams latest pulp series features Ike Mars, a 1950s private eye who was struck twice by lightning. The result of these near-death events left his face malleable enough that he can mold his features to look like other people for a short time. “Shades of the Avenger,” thought Fortier, when editing the first Ike Mars manuscript.

It became clear to Fortier and Airship 27 Art Director, Rob Davis, that Adams prodigious volume of great pulp stories should be showcased in a way as to draw attention to all these various series. The answer to that challenge was to produce a “sampler” collection and they put the idea to Adams. He was only too happy to participate and thus, the new “Fred Adams Jr. – Pulp Writer” features six brand new pulp thrillers culled from his current six on-going Airship 27 series.

“We had a blast putting this book together,” Fortier sums up. “Rob did all the interior illustrations and the cover. It is our hope the book will show fans of his work some of the other series they may missed, as well as make him lots of new readers.”

The astounding epilogue, according to Fortier, is that Adams is currently creating a seventh series. “Fred Adams Jr. is pulp writing machine!”

Operator 5 #4: The Melting Death
By Curtis Steele

Out of the blue it struck—that dread, mysterious force, dealing death, destruction and misery to millions. America found herself stripped of her strongest defenses as battleships, huge guns, skyscrapers, factories and transportation systems crumbled to dust before the voracious flame. No one could tell where it came from; where it would next strike; no one was safe from its hot, devouring maw. An entire nation stood crippled, paralyzed by panic as Operator 5, alone, fought to save America from the red ruin loosed upon it.

Operator 5: The Complete Purple Wars (2 Volume Deluxe Edition)
by Emile C. Tepperman, illustrated by John Fleming Gould and John Newton Howitt
introduction by Will Murray and an afterword by Tom Johnson
Dustjacketed two-volume hardcover edition.

The "War and Peace of the Pulps” is finally collected in a two-volume deluxe, hardcover edition. Running in the pages of Operator #5 magazine from 1936–38, this 14-part epic chronicled the invasion and conquering of America by a mysterious foe from Europe: The Purple Empire. As Will Murray describes in this edition's Introduction: "Battles rage from coast to coast. The exploits of Operator 5 shift from espionage and counterespionage to straight military adventure. Through it all, Jimmy Christopher rises to become the de facto leader of the resistance."

Written by Emile C. Tepperman (author of The Spider and The Masked Marksman) and containing nearly 300 illustrations by John Fleming Gould, this half-million-word saga remains the greatest epic to see print in Golden Age of the pulps and is still considered most risky and ambitious experiment ever undertaken in the single-character magazines.

This two-volume deluxe, hardcover edition includes an all-new Introduction by pulp historian Will Murray, as well as Tom Johnson's retrospective on the series, The History of the Purple Wars. It also collects the rarely-reprinted Epilogue to the Purple War, "Revolt of the Devil Men."

Also restored are all of author Tepperman's rarely-reprinted footnotes which graced the original pulp editions of the stories.

Never-before collected, this remastered, comprehensive collection of Operator 5: The Complete Purple Wars has been one of the most eagerly-anticipated pulp publications of all time.

788 pages / 8.5"x11" / $150



Ships and Men: The Complete Epic (Deluxe Edition)
by H. Bedford-Jones
illustrated by Frederic Anderson, George Avison, John Richard Flanagan, Leyland R. Gustavson, Robert L. Lambdin, Arthur Lytell, Alex Raymond, Alfred Simpkin, Yngve E. Soderberg, and Harve Stein
Dustjacketed hardcover edition.

Running for three years in the pages of the prestigious Blue Book Magazine, author H. Bedford-Jones crafted the most ambitious work of his career: a massive, 34-part saga of seafaring adventure, told chronologically throughout the annals of naval warfare, involving a number of significant figures in world history. Never before collected, this 200,000-word epic includes nearly 200 interior illustrations by artists such as Alex Raymond, John Richard Flanagan, and Leyland R. Gustavson.

350 pages / 8.5"x11" / $85

Champion, Dashiell Hammett, Carroll John Daly, Frederick Nebel, T.T. Flynn, and Frederick C. Davis

Black Mask, the greatest American detective magazine of all time, is back with another issue. This time around, it includes nine new stories in the Black Mask vein by Brian Townsley, Jane Jakeman, Brian Stanley, Hannah Honeybun, William Burton McCormick, Frank Megna, Jonathan Sheppard, Michael Bracken, Jim Doherty, as well as a new article on Raymond Chandler’s The Little Sister by Katrina Younes. In addition, Boris Dralyuk has kindly supplied his translation of Isaac Babel’s “Lyubka the Cossack” and arranged for its reprinting here.

And, as with previous issues, Black Mask collects some of the best hard-boiled detective fiction from the Popular Publications vaults, as written by some of the genre’s best: Dashiell Hammett, D.L. Champion, Carroll John Daly, Frederick Nebel, T.T. Flynn, and Frederick C. Davis.

Black Moon: The Complete Tales of Jules de Grandin, Volume Five - Arriving in book stores March 19!
by Seabury Quinn


The concluding volume in a series collecting the stories of Jules de Grandin, the supernatural detective made famous in the classic pulp magazine Weird Tales.

Today the names of H. P. Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard, August Derleth, and Clark Ashton Smith, all regular contributors to the pulp magazine Weird Tales during the first half of the twentieth century, are recognizable even to casual readers of the bizarre and fantastic. And yet despite being more popular than them all during the golden era of genre pulp fiction, there is another author whose name and work have fallen into obscurity: Seabury Quinn.

Quinn’s short stories were featured in well over half of Weird Tales’s original publication run. His most famous character, the French supernatural detective Dr. Jules de Grandin, investigated cases involving monsters, devil worshippers, serial killers, and spirits from beyond the grave, often set in the small town of Harrisonville, New Jersey. In de Grandin there are familiar shades of both Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes and Agatha Christie’s Hercule Poirot, and alongside his assistant, Dr. Samuel Trowbridge, de Grandin’s knack for solving mysteries—and his outbursts of peculiar French-isms (Grand Dieu!)—captivated readers for nearly three decades.

Available for the first time in trade editions, The Complete Tales of Jules de Grandin collects all ninety-three published works featuring the supernatural detective. Presented in chronological order over five volumes, this is the definitive collection of an iconic pulp hero.

The fifth volume, Black Moon, includes all the stories from “Suicide Chapel” (1938) to “The Ring of Bastet” (1951), as well as an introduction by George Vanderburgh and Robert Weinberg and a foreword by Stephen Jones.

Blood 'N' Thunder / Murania Press

Before launching what would eventually become the Marvel Comics empire, Martin Goodman published low-rent pulp magazines issued by a dizzying array of shell companies designed to insulate him from irate creditors. In order to compete in an already-crowded marketplace, he allowed editor-in-chief Robert O. Erisman to distinguish their periodicals with lurid covers and frankly sensational fiction. Bearing Goodman's "Red Circle" trademark, the short-lived horror pulps Mystery Tales, Uncanny Tales, Marvel Tales, and Real Mystery were transgressive in the extreme, shattering the boundaries of good taste and igniting a firestorm of outrage that eventually drove all horror pulps off the newsstands.

This book collects ten of the most shocking, sadistic, and salacious yarns ever to appear in Red Circle's shudder pulps — more than 100,000 words of mesmerizingly appalling fiction — tied together with a 4200-word essay that puts them in their proper cultural-historical perspective. We guarantee you'll never read another pulp anthology quite like it!

JOHNSTON MCCULLEY OMNIBUS
Now available!

Among the most prolific fictioneers ever to pound a typewriter, Johnston McCulley has earned pop-culture immortality as the creator of Zorro, who made his debut in 1919.  At that time he was just one of many McCulley characters romping through the shag-edged pages of America's pulp-fiction magazines.  Most others appeared in Street & Smith's DETECTIVE STORY MAGAZINE, a weekly periodical devoted to fast-paced tales of crime and mystery.  The three novels contained in this book, originally published in DETECTIVE STORY as several series of connected novelettes, feature protagonists operating outside the law. Two of them, Black Star and The Spider, are master criminals who take special pleasure in outwitting police; the third, The Thunderbolt, is a vigilante attempting to right wrongs beyond the law's reach.

Although these yarns were written a hundred years ago, they lack the florid excesses common to what is popularly known as "purple prose." McCulley's style is simple and direct, and aside from some stilted dialogue here and there, his fiction remains just as entertaining as it was upon first publication. Moreover, his World War I-era protagonists set the pattern for countless pulp characters to follow, lending historical context to their fanciful exploits. In reading the adventures of Black Star, The Spider, and The Thunderbolt, today's pulp-fiction aficionado will encounter tropes that were still being employed twenty and thirty years later. None of the characters in this omnibus had Zorro's longevity, nor did they achieve his success in other media. But they are fascinating nonetheless as precursors of an entire school of pulp heroes and villains.

Clive Cussler: Celtic Empire (Dirk Pitt Adventure)  - Arriving in book stores March 19!

The murders of a team of United Nations scientists in El Salvador. . . A deadly collision in the waterways off the city of Detroit. . . An attack by tomb raiders on an archaeological site along the banks of the Nile. . . Is there a link between these violent events? The answer may lie in the tale of an Egyptian princess forced to flee the armies of her father three thousand years ago.

During what was supposed to be a routine investigation in South America, NUMA Director Dirk Pitt finds himself embroiled in an international mystery, one that will lead him across the world and which will threaten everyone and everything he knows--most importantly, his own family. Pitt travels to Scotland in search of answers about the spread of an unknown disease and the shadowy bioremediation company that may be behind it. Meanwhile, his son and daughter face a threat of their own when the discoveries they have made in an Egyptian tomb put killers on their trail. These seemingly unrelated riddles come together in a stunning showdown on the rocky isles of Ireland, where only the Pitts can unravel the secrets of an ancient enigma that could change the very future of mankind.

The Complete Adventures of Jimmie Dale: Volume One
An Annotated Compilation of all five novels of the Gray Seal and the Tocsin (Volume 1)
By Frank L. Packard (Author), Michael Howard (Editor)

Now available!

In 1914 a character appeared who would permanently transform popular fiction. Frank Packard's Gray Seal melded elements from A. J. Raffles, Jimmy Valentine, the Scarlet Pimpernel, and Arsène Lupin, but those traits were combined with an entirely new concept: the gifted young man who conceals his identity behind a mask to fight crime in the big city.

It had never been done before and it's never stopped being done since. Jimmie Dale, the high society millionaire behind the Gray Seal persona, helped to launch the hero pulp boom of the 1930s and was a direct influence on the Green Hornet, the Spider, the Phantom, and especially The Shadow. The Gray Seal template was adopted by the comic book industry as well, and well into the Twenty-first Century continues to appear there, on television, and in the movies.

And now, for the first time ever the complete Jimmie Dale saga is being reprinted in a set of authoritative editions.

The personal papers of Gray Seal creator Frank Packard have been consulted for this project, along with various unpublished works of fiction by him that add further insight to the series.
Also, a detailed chronology has been established for the novels so they can be considered in their proper historical setting.
The definitive Gray Seal collection is finally here, beginning with the novel that forever changed adventure fiction - and the larger world of popular entertainment.


Paperback: 381 pages
Product Dimensions: 6 x 9 inches

$17.99
This is the first of three volumes.
Volume 2 is anticipated in late 2019.


There is no eBook edition at this time.
The plan is to wait until all three volumes in the reprint series are completed in trade paperback editions, then combine them into a single eBook edition.

SWORDS IN THE MIST  by Fritz Leiber
Now available!


In the annals of heroic fantasy one epic tale stands head and shoulders above the rest, spanning sixty years in the telling, the saga of Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser has captivated fans ever since Fritz Leiber’s first tale of the duo appeared in the August, 1939 issue of Unknown. The story of Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser is among the most enduring in modern fantasy, and Centipede Press is releasing the first of what will be the definitive eight-volume set comprising not only all of the stories by Fritz Leiber (and his friend Harry Fischer), but also the brilliant epilogue to the series, Swords Against the Shadowland by Robin Wayne Bailey.

The third book in the series, Swords in the Mist, includes “The Cloud of Hate,” “Lean Times in Lankhmar,” “Their Mistress, The Sea,” “When the Sea-King’s Away,” “The Wrong Branch,” and “Adept’s Gambit.”

For bonus materials, we have a rare photograph of Fritz Leiber, plus Leiber’s introduction from Night’s Black Agents, an essay by Fritz Leiber called “H.P. Lovecraft meets Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser,” some story fragments and a “Few Fafhrd & Gray Mouser Firsts,” and H.P. Lovecraft’s letters to Fritz Leiber regarding “Adept’s Gambit.”

This book features an introduction by Tim Powers and artwork by Grant Griffin. It features six color interior illustrations, a full-color frontispiece, full color wraparound dustjacket, and custom illustrated endpapers. The book includes all of the stories that make up Swords in the Mist along with the bonus material mentioned above.

F. Paul Wilson: THE LAST CHRISTMAS: A Repairman Jack novel - Coming this Fall!

Jack is back.

Wilson never said he was through with Repairman Jack.  He said he was through turning in a new novel every year. He also said when a story came along that was right for Jack, he’d write it.  The Last Christmas is that story.

It’s late December between Ground Zero and Fatal Error, a winter of discontent for Jack who’s perhaps spending too much time hanging at Julio’s. An old contact, Edward Burkes, convinces him to take on a missing-person fix.  As usual, nothing is as it seems and the missing person isn’t exactly a person.  In fact, it’s like nothing anyone has ever seen.

And in the middle of all this, the mysterious Madame de Medici hires him to safeguard a valuable object. Simple, right?

Not even close.

Yep, Jack is back and, as usual, weird trouble is on his heels.

All editions signed by F. Paul Wilson.

THE COMPLETE JOHN THE BALLADEER
By Manly Wade Wellman
Complete in two volumes!

Now available for pre-order!

“Not All a Dream”                
An unpublished Manly Wade Wellman story to be shipped with preorders of       
THE COMPLETE JOHN THE BALLADEER
Note: Cover shown is not final!       


John, whose last name is never revealed, is a wandering singer who carries a guitar strung with strings of pure silver. He is a veteran of the Korean War and served in the U.S. Army as a sharpshooter (in the novel After Dark, he mentions that his highest rank was PFC). In his travels, he frequently encounters creatures and superstitions from the folk tales and superstitions of the mountain people. Though John has no formal education, he is self-taught, highly intelligent and widely read; it is implied that his knowledge of occult and folk legendarium is of Ph.D level. This knowledge has granted him competent use of white magic, which he has used on occasion to overcome enemies or obstacles, but it is primarily his courage, wit and essential goodness that always enables him to triumph over supernatural evils (although the silver strings of his guitar and his possession of a copy of The Long Lost Friend are also powerful tools in fighting evil magic), while basic Army training allows him to physically deal with human foes.

The stories are rich in the customs and lore of the region and many of the folk songs John sings are authentic as well. Wellman did introduce some original songs and legends but his creations blend seamlessly with the traditional material. Whereas Tolkien integrated Northern mythology into his mythos, and C.S. Lewis the European Fairy Tales of yore, Wellman’s stories are drenched in the folktales and songs of old Americana; the haunting stories of the slaves and the tall tales of the Revolution, strange beasts, witch-women, and dark apparitions. As famed author Karl Edward Wagner wrote: “These stories are chilling and enchanting, magical and down-to-earth, full of wonder and humanity. They are fun. They are like nothing else you’ve read before.”—Adapted from Wikipedia

Weird Talers: Essays on Robert E. Howard and Others
By Bobby Derie 

Now available for pre-order!
On sale April 1st!

For more than a decade, Bobby Derie has written insightful and penetrating essays on some of the leading authors of pulp fiction in the 1920s and 1930s, especially Robert E. Howard and his friends, colleagues, and fellow-writers. In this collection of twenty-six essays, Derie covers an extraordinarily wide range of subjects; but in every instance he draws upon primary documents to illuminate some of the obscurer corners in the realm of the pulp magazines, especially the legendary Weird Tales.

Here we find studies of the expansive and at times contentious correspondence of H. P. Lovecraft and Robert E. Howard; Howard’s association with such colleagues in the pulp world as Clark Ashton Smith, Henry S. Whitehead, and Frank Belknap Long; Howard’s sporadic involvement with such fans as R. H. Barlow, Stuart M. Boland, and Francis T. Laney; a discussion of Howard’s writing for amateur papers; and numerous other topics.

Derie’s perspicacity and keenness of analysis are apparent on every page of his work. His thorough familiarity, not only with Robert E. Howard’s fiction but also with his bountiful letters, serves as the foundation of his critical work, and he exhibits a wide knowledge of the work of Lovecraft, Smith, and others who form the inexhaustibly fascinating cadre of writers associated with Weird Tales.

Bobby Derie is the author of Sex and the Cthulhu Mythos (2014) and the compiler of The Collected Letters of Robert E. Howard: Index and Addenda (2015). He has written numerous articles on pulp fiction that have appeared in print and in online venues.


Paperback, 352 pages

G-8 and His Battle Aces #42 Audiobook
Fangs of the Sky Leopard
by Robert J. Hogan

Read by Nick Santa Maria

Now available!

 They called G-8 the Flying Spy. History never recorded his exploits—and for good reason! No one would ever believe World War I was that wild!
 
“The greatest fighters among you will die first!”
 
This message was not a lie. It came swiftly and frighteningly, written for all to see in the blood of the brave. What strange strength had been given to these beasts that was denied to other men? What forces have made courage useless and the honor of men a travesty? The Leopard Men, rampant, anxious to kill — determined to murder the Master Spy!



As a team, The Battle Aces took on multiple missions, largely against the Germans as depicted in Robert J. Hogan’s version of World War One. G-8 and his men handled espionage, air and ground special forces type duties, and anything aerial, from reconnaissance to raids. The pacing of the G-8 stories seemed, believe it or not, faster than most Pulp tales, primarily because they were taking on missions during a war and everything had a sense of tension, of time being of the essence. This added to the impact of the story for the readers, making them invested in whether or not G-8 won the day.
 
Although the most frequently featured, the Battle Aces weren’t G-8’s only supporting cast. Adding a rather unique twist to things, G-8 had the services and loyalty of Battle, a British manservant, a butler of sorts. Battle did more, however, than simply look after his master in his off hours. Involved in several stories as a sort of ground troop, Battle provided assistance to the Battle Aces whenever he could. He was also responsible for G-8’s mastery of disguise, having learned himself from a master actor.
 
Nick Santa Maria brings G-8, Nippy and Bull to thrilling life in their desperate struggle to defeat a feline nemesis unlike anything they have ever before encountered in Fangs of the Sky Leopard. Originally published in the March, 1937 issue of G-8 and His Battle Aces magazine.

Startling Stories Audiobook
March 1949

Read by Milton Bagby and Paul Curtis

Now available!

Startling Stories was the younger sibling of Thrilling Wonder Stories. It began in 1939 at the urging of science fiction fans who clamored for a full-length novel in each issue. At this point, Thrilling Wonder Stories contained a variety of novelets and short stories, but fans wanted something longer that allowed for more character development. And thus, Startling Stories was born. Each issue started off with a book-length novel, and was filled out with a variety of short stories, science columns, special features and, of course, letters to the editor. Some of science-fiction’s best authors appeared in Startling Stories, including luminaries such as Stanley G. Weinbaum, Eando Binder, Edmond Hamilton, and Alfred Bester. The magazine thrived through the 1940s and early 1950s, but fading revenues forced it to close with the Fall 1955 issue, after a 99-issue run. Startling Stories now returns with these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s listeners as audiobooks.

SONGS OF GIANTS
The poetry of pulp, illustrated
Lost poetry of pulp giants Robert E. Howard, Edgar Rice Burroughs & H.P. Lovecraft
Illustrated by Mark Wheatley!
This Kickstarter will run through April 20, 2019!
The books and rewards are expected to ship in June (if successfully funded)!


The early part of the 20th century was a wild time in fiction, when publishers would try just about anything to see if it sold. Nowhere was there a more formidable challenge than in the pages of the pulps, which often chewed up and spat out would-be writers faster than new ones could step forward. Out of his fiery crucible came three giants: Robert E. Howard, Edgar Rice Burroughs, and H. P. Lovecraft.

These legendary authors forged names and reputations that still echo decades later. In turn, they have inspired many creators across the generations. One such creator is Overstreet Hall of Fame inductee, Inkpot, Mucker, Gem, Speakeasy, and Eisner award-winning writer-artist Mark Wheatley, and the result of that inspiration is Songs of Giants, a new Kickstarter project that launches on Monday, March 11, 2019.

Resurrected from crumbling pages of old pulp magazines, Songs of Giants cuts straight to the heart of the look, feel and language of the pulps as it highlights the often-forgotten poetry of these unforgotten masters. For his part, Wheatley expertly captures the essence of the beauty, horror, and adventure of Howard, Burroughs and Lovecraft’s words. He brings their poems to life with a fine line illustration style that is clearly inspired by the early, classic, golden age illustrators. The book also features an introduction by Nebula Award-winning author Jack McDevitt, creator of the Academy and Alex Benedict series.

Songs Of Giants is a limited edition, 8 ½” x 11” 72-page deluxe hardcover printed on super heavy stock, The accompanying Kickstarter rewards range from screen savers and wallpapers to an exclusive signature plate, audio books, and one-of-a-kind original art. Reward levels start at just $15 for a digital version of the book and only $25 for the printed version.

“I’ve spent more than a year crafting this art. And while I’ve been working, I’ve had a major pulp art show of my illustration originals. Based on the public reaction to that show, I’m thrilled to finally share Songs of Giants art with the public. The few people who have seen the work so far have convinced me that this is possibly my best work, ever. Because of that, it was difficult to keep the project quiet, so now I’m truly happy that the news is out,” said Mark Wheatley.

Working on his originals at a very large size in a traditional brush, pen and ink approach, Wheatley spent hours savoring the poems in order to bring them to life in this new way. Characters, dangers, and whole worlds became embodied in his illustrations, in turn reflecting the full flavor and power of the works that inspired them.

“Our initial goal of $5,500 is intentionally set very low. This money will cover the cost of printing the book. From our past experience on Kickstarter, having successfully raised money for the Doctor Cthulittle book and fulfilled the rewards, we believe that hitting this goal is very possible and quite likely. If we do not hit our stretch goals, we will still have enough to print the book and we are in a position to ship the rewards with our budget. Of course, the stretch goals offer a good many perks that we would like to be able to share with our backers,” Wheatley said.

For those who chose the reward levels that include the audio book, the masterful voice actor Mark Redfield is on full display with many of the poems from Songs Of Giants. His readings of Howard, Burroughs and Lovecraft are augmented by the outstanding original musical score and sound design by Jennifer Rouse. It provides a truly stirring dramatic experience! 

The Kickstarter project for Songs Of Giants will launch on Monday, March 11 and is scheduled to conclude on April 20th. If successfully funded, the books and other rewards are expected to ship in June 2019. The Kickstarter project is listed under ComicMix, LLC, Wheatley’s frequent publishing collaborators.

Wonders and Visions: A Visual History of Science Fiction
By Adam Roberts and Graham Sleight
New crowd funding project at Unbound!

A sumptuous history of science fiction told through its iconic covers.

Our book tells the story of science fiction through its most iconic, beautiful, interesting and (sometimes) crass cover art: from the earliest days of publishing in the 19th-century, through the glory days of Pulp magazine covers and the Golden Age, into the endless visual experimentation of the New Wave and so to the post-Star Wars era, when a 'visual logic' comes to dominate not just science fiction but culture as a whole.

With over 350 full-colour images and more than 50,000 words of text this is more than simply an anthology of famous science fiction covers--it is an ambitious attempt to tell the whole history of the genre in a new way, and to make the case that science fiction art, from the sober future-visions of Chesley Bonestell, to the garish splendours of Hannes Bok, from the Magritte-like surrealism of Richard Powers, Frank Freas, Judith Clute, and Ed Emshwiller to the amazingly talented designers and artists of the 21st-century, exists as a vital and neglected mode of modern art as such.

Through much of the twentieth-century it flowed like a subterranean river, influencing artistic Modernism, surrealism, abstraction, op-art and postmodernism, creating a heritage that directly informs the global visual texts of today in cinema, TV, graphic novels and video games. There has never been a book quite like this one.

Printed on 120 gsm art paper, hardbound and hand-sewn, we want this book to be a visually beautiful artifact, although as far as that is concerned we have a head start since so much of the art we want to reproduce is so gorgeous. The intense, inky detail of Virgil Finlay’s illustrations to the extraordinary visions of Paul Lehr, from the cool wondrousness of Moebius to the gorgeous grotesqueness of H R Giger and the amazing cityscapes of Kirsten Zirngibl.

There will be three main types of entry. Firstly, there will be several hundred key covers: one or sometimes two images + plus 150-200 words of text, of the ten (or more) most iconic and recognisable covers from each decade of our history: from Wells and Verne to H Rider Haggard's Barsoom and E E 'Doc' Smith's Lensman, from Arthur C Clarke's Childhood's End and Asimov's Foundation to Leigh Brackett and Joanna Russ's Female Man, from Cyberpunk masterpieces by William Gibson and Pat Cadigan to dystopias by Octavia Butler and Cormac McCarthy, to twenty-first century SF.

Second there will be more extended visual comparative studies, one or two page spreads that compare multiple covers for the same book, to see the way different artists and publishers have approached the task of visualising some of the most famous novels in the history of the genre: The Day of the Triffids; Dune; Left Hand of Darkness and more, as well as surveys of the work of famous illustrators, or publishing houses.

Third there will be milestone entries: examples of groundbreaking or unusual covers, usually the first example of (among other things) a fine late 19th-century illustrated binding for a SF title; a garishly coloured SF magazine cover; a Golden Age fix-up paperback, a psychedelic 1960s New Wave title, a movie-tie-in; a graphic novel adaptation of a classic: Shelley's Frankenstein as first SF novel; Auf Zwei Planeten as first Martian invasion; Time Machine as first time travel; Orphans of the Sky as the first Generation Starship novel; Leo and Diane Dillon's illustrations for Ellison's Dangerous Visions; early computer-generated SF art; and Metal Hurlant revolutionising the potential of SF comics.

Every visual entry will be accompanied by text, and the whole will threaded together to tell a new story about this important and beautiful mode of art.

Airship 27 Productions
MARTY QUADE PRIVATE DETECTIVE Volume 1
Now available!

During the days of the classic pulps, one of the finest mystery magazines on the stands was 10 DETECTIVE ACES.  Among the revolving series that appeared in that monthly were the cases of tough guy private eye Marty Quade as written by Emile C. Tepperman whose career went from 1933 to 1942.  His most remembered work has been the Purple Invasion Series for Operator 5. Little is known about Mr. Tepperman. He was credited for writing radio broadcasts for programs such as Suspense and Gang Busters. Other than that, his life remains a mystery.

Now Airship 27 Productions is thrilled to bring back this classic pulp character in four brand new adventures written by Gordon Dymowski, Chris Bell, Gene Moyers and Michael Black. From a missing pulp writer to spies on a military base, gumshoe Quade finds himself knee deep in hot dames, flying fists, and lethal lead. But Quade is no ordinary shamus, with both a quick wit and street-smart survival skills; he almost always solves the case.

Brian Loner provides 12 black and white interior illustrations while Airship 27 Productions’ own award Winning Art Director, Rob Davis, the cover, which is our homage to that old classic pulp mag. 

Available from Amazon and on Kindle.

Airship 27 Productions
SHERLOCK HOLMES CONSULTING DETECTIVE Volume 13
Now available!

Airship 27 Productions proudly presents the 13th Volume in its popular series, “Sherlock Holmes – Consulting Detective.” It features five new mysteries.

In their recorded exploits, Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson faced all kinds of mysteries; from the mundane to the most foul and insidious. They solved riddles involved with blackmail, thievery and murder, each with the same devotion to serving justice no matter the outcomes.

In this latest collection of the bestselling series, Holmes and Watson will deal with three women all claiming to the heir to a fortune, the brother of an old foe seeking revenge and a severed head sent to their apartment at 221 B Baker Street. Writers I.A. Watson, S. Subramanian, Fred Adams Jr. and Dexter Fabi have created thrilling new adventures that will challenge the detective duo in the most bizarre ways ever imagined.

A unique element of this volume is the cover by Michael Youngblood.  As Airship 27 Productions Manager explains, “For years, Sydney Paget was considered the premier Sherlock Holmes artist having done the illustrations for Arthur Conan Doyle’s original tales when they appeared in The Strand Magazine. Many of these are just as familiar as the stories themselves.”

Since the conception of the Consulting Detective series at Airship 27, Art Director Rob Davis has handled the illustrations. In the past ten years he has done over 150 gorgeous; several for which he won awards. Fortier continues, “I’m always saying Rob is the new Sydney Paget which led to this idea of taking one of Paget’s most popular pieces and having one of our artists do a cover interpretation of it. Which is what Michael Youngblood has done far exceeding our expectations.”

Quality stories and beautiful artwork, the hallmarks of Airship 27.


Available from Amazon and soon on Kindle.

AIRSHIP 27 & RADIO ARCHIVES
EXPANDING PARTNERSHIP

For the past several years Radio Archives, a leading audio book recorder, has been partnered with Airship 27 Productions. In that time, Radio Archives has produced 125 Airship 27 audiobooks and made them available via Amazon-Audible.com.

Effective Friday March 1st, 2019, Radio Archives will take over complete production of future Airship 27 titles and for the very first time sell them via their own popular website. Not only will New Pulp fans be able to purchase digital copies of these books, but CD sets as well. This is a first for Airship 27 Productions.

“Our association with Radio Archives has been nothing but beneficial to our little company,” reports Airship 27 Productions’ Managing Editor Ron Fortier. “With their recordings they have greatly increased our fan base. In fact this new evolution of having our books available on their site immediately opens 27 new distribution channels previously out of our reach.” Fortier adds, “Naturally that number 27 is a definite good omen for us.”

The first Airship 27 title to sell on the Radio Archives web store will be the recently released “CODENAME – INTREPID” by author Robert J. Mendenhall and is read by Paul Curtis. Fans can purchase either the digital download or the CD beginning on Friday. Also worth noting, all new titles will sell at a discounted 50% off cover price only during the first six days of the book’s posting. Fortier concludes, “We urge our Loyal Airmen to take advantage of this truly amazing deal and to also sign up for the Radio Archives Newsletter so that they do not miss future title releases.”

Black Moon: The Complete Tales of Jules de Grandin, Volume Five - Now available!
by Seabury Quinn


The concluding volume in a series collecting the stories of Jules de Grandin, the supernatural detective made famous in the classic pulp magazine Weird Tales.

Today the names of H. P. Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard, August Derleth, and Clark Ashton Smith, all regular contributors to the pulp magazine Weird Tales during the first half of the twentieth century, are recognizable even to casual readers of the bizarre and fantastic. And yet despite being more popular than them all during the golden era of genre pulp fiction, there is another author whose name and work have fallen into obscurity: Seabury Quinn.

Quinn’s short stories were featured in well over half of Weird Tales’s original publication run. His most famous character, the French supernatural detective Dr. Jules de Grandin, investigated cases involving monsters, devil worshippers, serial killers, and spirits from beyond the grave, often set in the small town of Harrisonville, New Jersey. In de Grandin there are familiar shades of both Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes and Agatha Christie’s Hercule Poirot, and alongside his assistant, Dr. Samuel Trowbridge, de Grandin’s knack for solving mysteries—and his outbursts of peculiar French-isms (Grand Dieu!)—captivated readers for nearly three decades.

Available for the first time in trade editions, The Complete Tales of Jules de Grandin collects all ninety-three published works featuring the supernatural detective. Presented in chronological order over five volumes, this is the definitive collection of an iconic pulp hero.

The fifth volume, Black Moon, includes all the stories from “Suicide Chapel” (1938) to “The Ring of Bastet” (1951), as well as an introduction by George Vanderburgh and Robert Weinberg and a foreword by Stephen Jones.

Blood 'N' Thunder / Murania Press

Before launching what would eventually become the Marvel Comics empire, Martin Goodman published low-rent pulp magazines issued by a dizzying array of shell companies designed to insulate him from irate creditors. In order to compete in an already-crowded marketplace, he allowed editor-in-chief Robert O. Erisman to distinguish their periodicals with lurid covers and frankly sensational fiction. Bearing Goodman's "Red Circle" trademark, the short-lived horror pulps Mystery Tales, Uncanny Tales, Marvel Tales, and Real Mystery were transgressive in the extreme, shattering the boundaries of good taste and igniting a firestorm of outrage that eventually drove all horror pulps off the newsstands.

This book collects ten of the most shocking, sadistic, and salacious yarns ever to appear in Red Circle's shudder pulps — more than 100,000 words of mesmerizingly appalling fiction — tied together with a 4200-word essay that puts them in their proper cultural-historical perspective. We guarantee you'll never read another pulp anthology quite like it!

JOHNSTON MCCULLEY OMNIBUS
Now available!

Among the most prolific fictioneers ever to pound a typewriter, Johnston McCulley has earned pop-culture immortality as the creator of Zorro, who made his debut in 1919.  At that time he was just one of many McCulley characters romping through the shag-edged pages of America's pulp-fiction magazines.  Most others appeared in Street & Smith's DETECTIVE STORY MAGAZINE, a weekly periodical devoted to fast-paced tales of crime and mystery.  The three novels contained in this book, originally published in DETECTIVE STORY as several series of connected novelettes, feature protagonists operating outside the law. Two of them, Black Star and The Spider, are master criminals who take special pleasure in outwitting police; the third, The Thunderbolt, is a vigilante attempting to right wrongs beyond the law's reach.

Although these yarns were written a hundred years ago, they lack the florid excesses common to what is popularly known as "purple prose." McCulley's style is simple and direct, and aside from some stilted dialogue here and there, his fiction remains just as entertaining as it was upon first publication. Moreover, his World War I-era protagonists set the pattern for countless pulp characters to follow, lending historical context to their fanciful exploits. In reading the adventures of Black Star, The Spider, and The Thunderbolt, today's pulp-fiction aficionado will encounter tropes that were still being employed twenty and thirty years later. None of the characters in this omnibus had Zorro's longevity, nor did they achieve his success in other media. But they are fascinating nonetheless as precursors of an entire school of pulp heroes and villains.

Robert E. Howard: A Literary Biography


Cimmerian Press
RINGSIDE WITH ROBERT E. HOWARD
By Brian Leno

Now available!

Brian Leno returns with his second Robert E. Howard TriplePunchPack — only this time the emphasis isn’t on literary criticism. The game is biography. The Life of Robert E. Howard. Lives of the Boxers. Both subjects lifelong interests for this award-winning Howard scholar.

Leno establishes those longtime bona fides in “Down the Rabbit Hole,” in which he reveals details of his first trip to Cross Plains — in 1967, when he was eleven years old — riding the initial shock waves of the phenomenon known as the Howard Boom.

Standing inside Howard’s home in 2007, during the annual festival held in honor of the author who created Conan the barbarian, Leno pauses to reflect on many aspects of his life, while also reporting on the fan tumult surging around him. And of course he visits Howard’s grave. He stands in the ruins of the local ice house where Howard once boxed himself.

“Jim Tully and Robert E. Howard: Beggars of Life” broods over the Texan’s fascination with Tully, novelist and Hollywood reporter, once a hobo, a boxer — and during Howard’s lifetime one of the best-selling writers in America. Why is Tully now so completely forgotten while a man who never had a book appear before his early death maintains a lasting international reputation?

“Ernest Hemingway, Robert E. Howard and Battling Siki: Typewriters and Fists” covers the life and career of Siki, “Wild Man of the Boulevards,” the first African to win a major boxing championship. This pioneering figure influenced moments in fiction by Hemingway and REH. Hemingway and Howard — both suicides.

(And as an eBook eXtra Leno tosses a new survey into the ring — “A Texas Cowboy in Chicago” — on local fighter “Kid” Dula and Howard’s predictions for his climb to a title. No one else sits at the ringside known to Robert E. Howard with the authority of Brian Leno.)

The Complete Adventures of Jimmie Dale: Volume One
An Annotated Compilation of all five novels of the Gray Seal and the Tocsin (Volume 1)
By Frank L. Packard (Author), Michael Howard (Editor)

Now available!

In 1914 a character appeared who would permanently transform popular fiction. Frank Packard's Gray Seal melded elements from A. J. Raffles, Jimmy Valentine, the Scarlet Pimpernel, and Arsène Lupin, but those traits were combined with an entirely new concept: the gifted young man who conceals his identity behind a mask to fight crime in the big city.

It had never been done before and it's never stopped being done since. Jimmie Dale, the high society millionaire behind the Gray Seal persona, helped to launch the hero pulp boom of the 1930s and was a direct influence on the Green Hornet, the Spider, the Phantom, and especially The Shadow. The Gray Seal template was adopted by the comic book industry as well, and well into the Twenty-first Century continues to appear there, on television, and in the movies.

And now, for the first time ever the complete Jimmie Dale saga is being reprinted in a set of authoritative editions.

The personal papers of Gray Seal creator Frank Packard have been consulted for this project, along with various unpublished works of fiction by him that add further insight to the series.
Also, a detailed chronology has been established for the novels so they can be considered in their proper historical setting.
The definitive Gray Seal collection is finally here, beginning with the novel that forever changed adventure fiction - and the larger world of popular entertainment.


Paperback: 381 pages
Product Dimensions: 6 x 9 inches

$17.99
This is the first of three volumes.
Volume 2 is anticipated in late 2019.


There is no eBook edition at this time.
The plan is to wait until all three volumes in the reprint series are completed in trade paperback editions, then combine them into a single eBook edition.

F. Paul Wilson: THE LAST CHRISTMAS: A Repairman Jack novel - Coming this Fall!

Jack is back.

Wilson never said he was through with Repairman Jack.  He said he was through turning in a new novel every year. He also said when a story came along that was right for Jack, he’d write it.  The Last Christmas is that story.

It’s late December between Ground Zero and Fatal Error, a winter of discontent for Jack who’s perhaps spending too much time hanging at Julio’s. An old contact, Edward Burkes, convinces him to take on a missing-person fix.  As usual, nothing is as it seems and the missing person isn’t exactly a person.  In fact, it’s like nothing anyone has ever seen.

And in the middle of all this, the mysterious Madame de Medici hires him to safeguard a valuable object. Simple, right?

Not even close.

Yep, Jack is back and, as usual, weird trouble is on his heels.

All editions signed by F. Paul Wilson.

THE COMPLETE JOHN THE BALLADEER
By Manly Wade Wellman
Complete in two volumes!

Now available for pre-order!

“Not All a Dream”                
An unpublished Manly Wade Wellman story to be shipped with preorders of       
THE COMPLETE JOHN THE BALLADEER
Note: Cover shown is not final!       


John, whose last name is never revealed, is a wandering singer who carries a guitar strung with strings of pure silver. He is a veteran of the Korean War and served in the U.S. Army as a sharpshooter (in the novel After Dark, he mentions that his highest rank was PFC). In his travels, he frequently encounters creatures and superstitions from the folk tales and superstitions of the mountain people. Though John has no formal education, he is self-taught, highly intelligent and widely read; it is implied that his knowledge of occult and folk legendarium is of Ph.D level. This knowledge has granted him competent use of white magic, which he has used on occasion to overcome enemies or obstacles, but it is primarily his courage, wit and essential goodness that always enables him to triumph over supernatural evils (although the silver strings of his guitar and his possession of a copy of The Long Lost Friend are also powerful tools in fighting evil magic), while basic Army training allows him to physically deal with human foes.

The stories are rich in the customs and lore of the region and many of the folk songs John sings are authentic as well. Wellman did introduce some original songs and legends but his creations blend seamlessly with the traditional material. Whereas Tolkien integrated Northern mythology into his mythos, and C.S. Lewis the European Fairy Tales of yore, Wellman’s stories are drenched in the folktales and songs of old Americana; the haunting stories of the slaves and the tall tales of the Revolution, strange beasts, witch-women, and dark apparitions. As famed author Karl Edward Wagner wrote: “These stories are chilling and enchanting, magical and down-to-earth, full of wonder and humanity. They are fun. They are like nothing else you’ve read before.”—Adapted from Wikipedia

The Spider #95 Audiobook
The Spider and the Scarlet Surgeon
by Norvell W. Page writing as Grant Stockbridge

Read by Nick Santa Maria

Now available!


 With a skill unheard of, the fabulous Red Surgeon changed people into imbeciles... or geniuses of crime! Thus did he found an empire built on murder and, incredibly, sought as his lieutenants... Kirkpatrick, Nita van Sloan and the Spider — with personalities completely redesigned by the scalpel!
 
Eighty years ago in the summer of 1933, Popular Publications President Harry Steeger and his executive editor, Rogers Terrill, decided to enter the new field of magazines built around a single hero. They enlisted popular aviation hero Robert J. Hogan to help conceive G-8 and His Battle Aces, which debuted late in August. But they also wanted to publish a crimebuster to rival a famous pulp juggernaut. Steeger frankly admitted in later years, “The reason we started the title the Spider was because of the success of Street & Smith’s The Shadow. At this point in pulp history individual titles became very popular, so we decided to try out a few ourselves.”


 
Garbed in a black silk cloak, slouch hat and wearing an assortment of masks and strange disguises to make him look as fierce as his namesake, the Spider ran roughshod over a vicious legion of thugs and hoodlums, leaving behind him a trail of cold corpses branded by his calling card, a scarlet spider burned into their foreheads.
 
So go now with Richard Wentworth, alias the Spider.
 
Nick Santa Maria takes on the dual persona of Richard Wentworth and his arachnid alter-ego for this nail-biting audio rendition of The Spider and the Scarlet Surgeon. Originally published in The Spider magazine, August, 1941.

 They called Secret Agent “X”, the Man of the Thousand Faces. Armed with his irresistible gas gun, wearing impenetrable disguises, Secret Agent “X” infiltrates the darkest corners of the Underworld to crush all crime czars!
 
Secret Agent “X” knew that the destiny of millions of honest people rested in his judgment of a beautiful but crafty woman. And all the Agent’s plans fell to pieces when his most important confederate, Harvey Bates, rebelled against orders. For Bates insisted that Charlotta, the glamorous and powerful spy of old, was incapable of any evil.



The enigma of enigmas, Secret Agent “X” has been deputized by a high government official to battle the darkest, most diabolical enemies of America before they sink their poisonous fangs into the nation’s healthy core. Faceless and unsung. Secret Agent “X” infiltrates these threats in a bewildering array of disguises.
 
Operating out of the supposedly haunted Montgomery Mansion, Secret Agent “X” ventures forth in a bewildering array of false identities to infiltrate the darkest underbelly of the underworld—and destroy it from within. A master investigator of a thousand guises and surprises. The only clue to his true identity is his haunting whistle…..
 
For Secret Agent “X”, it was decreed that he would pit himself against villains who were maestros of unbridled horror. Melodrama was the rule of the day, Secret Agent “X” plunged into maelstroms of raw bloodlust undreamed of by The Shadow and Doc Savage. His foes were truly depraved.
 
Walking a fine line between Government Agent and masked vigilante, Secret Agent “X” demanded villains more extreme than he was. Street level crime was not what the likes of Doctor Marko, The Leopard Lady, Thoth, and Madam Death practiced. They brought mass murder and hysteria and only Secret Agent “X” could stand up to them.
 
Follow the Man of a Thousand Faces as he confronts the menace of City of Madness, ripped from the pages of Secret Agent “X” magazine, December 1936 and read with chilling intensity by Milton Bagby.

Air War eBook
Captain Danger #6 - Winter 1942

Now available!

Total Pulp Experience. These exciting pulp adventures have been beautifully reformatted for easy reading as an eBook and features every story, every editorial, and every column of the original pulp magazine.
 
Winging from World War II skies, it's Captain Danger, Nazi-dom’s ultimate nemesis! The exploits of this steely-eyed defender of justice, this whirlwind ace of aces, were things of legend as he struggled against the Axis of Evil. Captain Allan Danger, a character of epic proportions, first appeared in Air War, a new aviation magazine from Thrilling Publications in 1940. Intended as a companion magazine to Sky Fighters and The Lone Eagle, Air War contained a variety of aviation war stories, each showcasing an adventure of Captain Danger.
 
Captain Danger typified a hard-jawed, larger-than-life ace pilot who would battle the Nazi threat, encountering fantastic situations, robot-controlled planes, death fogs, and Nazi bombers that had harnessed the power of splitting the atom. In all, fifteen adventures of Captain Danger were published between 1940 and 1944, as the flyboys of the Allied nations battled against the war power of the Axis. The stories were part of America’s propaganda machine, blatant and unapologetic, high on hyperbole, low on subtlety. The Axis was portrayed as sniveling cowards who would shoot down helpless parachuters and run from an even fight —the Allies as staunch, dauntless, fighting for right. And greatest of them all... Captain Danger! Air War returns in vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.

Wonders and Visions: A Visual History of Science Fiction
By Adam Roberts and Graham Sleight
New crowd funding project at Unbound!

A sumptuous history of science fiction told through its iconic covers.

Our book tells the story of science fiction through its most iconic, beautiful, interesting and (sometimes) crass cover art: from the earliest days of publishing in the 19th-century, through the glory days of Pulp magazine covers and the Golden Age, into the endless visual experimentation of the New Wave and so to the post-Star Wars era, when a 'visual logic' comes to dominate not just science fiction but culture as a whole.

With over 350 full-colour images and more than 50,000 words of text this is more than simply an anthology of famous science fiction covers--it is an ambitious attempt to tell the whole history of the genre in a new way, and to make the case that science fiction art, from the sober future-visions of Chesley Bonestell, to the garish splendours of Hannes Bok, from the Magritte-like surrealism of Richard Powers, Frank Freas, Judith Clute, and Ed Emshwiller to the amazingly talented designers and artists of the 21st-century, exists as a vital and neglected mode of modern art as such.

Through much of the twentieth-century it flowed like a subterranean river, influencing artistic Modernism, surrealism, abstraction, op-art and postmodernism, creating a heritage that directly informs the global visual texts of today in cinema, TV, graphic novels and video games. There has never been a book quite like this one.

Printed on 120 gsm art paper, hardbound and hand-sewn, we want this book to be a visually beautiful artifact, although as far as that is concerned we have a head start since so much of the art we want to reproduce is so gorgeous. The intense, inky detail of Virgil Finlay’s illustrations to the extraordinary visions of Paul Lehr, from the cool wondrousness of Moebius to the gorgeous grotesqueness of H R Giger and the amazing cityscapes of Kirsten Zirngibl.

There will be three main types of entry. Firstly, there will be several hundred key covers: one or sometimes two images + plus 150-200 words of text, of the ten (or more) most iconic and recognisable covers from each decade of our history: from Wells and Verne to H Rider Haggard's Barsoom and E E 'Doc' Smith's Lensman, from Arthur C Clarke's Childhood's End and Asimov's Foundation to Leigh Brackett and Joanna Russ's Female Man, from Cyberpunk masterpieces by William Gibson and Pat Cadigan to dystopias by Octavia Butler and Cormac McCarthy, to twenty-first century SF.

Second there will be more extended visual comparative studies, one or two page spreads that compare multiple covers for the same book, to see the way different artists and publishers have approached the task of visualising some of the most famous novels in the history of the genre: The Day of the Triffids; Dune; Left Hand of Darkness and more, as well as surveys of the work of famous illustrators, or publishing houses.

Third there will be milestone entries: examples of groundbreaking or unusual covers, usually the first example of (among other things) a fine late 19th-century illustrated binding for a SF title; a garishly coloured SF magazine cover; a Golden Age fix-up paperback, a psychedelic 1960s New Wave title, a movie-tie-in; a graphic novel adaptation of a classic: Shelley's Frankenstein as first SF novel; Auf Zwei Planeten as first Martian invasion; Time Machine as first time travel; Orphans of the Sky as the first Generation Starship novel; Leo and Diane Dillon's illustrations for Ellison's Dangerous Visions; early computer-generated SF art; and Metal Hurlant revolutionising the potential of SF comics.

Every visual entry will be accompanied by text, and the whole will threaded together to tell a new story about this important and beautiful mode of art.

Airship 27 Productions
MARTY QUADE PRIVATE DETECTIVE Volume 1
Now available!

During the days of the classic pulps, one of the finest mystery magazines on the stands was 10 DETECTIVE ACES.  Among the revolving series that appeared in that monthly were the cases of tough guy private eye Marty Quade as written by Emile C. Tepperman whose career went from 1933 to 1942.  His most remembered work has been the Purple Invasion Series for Operator 5. Little is known about Mr. Tepperman. He was credited for writing radio broadcasts for programs such as Suspense and Gang Busters. Other than that, his life remains a mystery.

Now Airship 27 Productions is thrilled to bring back this classic pulp character in four brand new adventures written by Gordon Dymowski, Chris Bell, Gene Moyers and Michael Black. From a missing pulp writer to spies on a military base, gumshoe Quade finds himself knee deep in hot dames, flying fists, and lethal lead. But Quade is no ordinary shamus, with both a quick wit and street-smart survival skills; he almost always solves the case.

Brian Loner provides 12 black and white interior illustrations while Airship 27 Productions’ own award Winning Art Director, Rob Davis, the cover, which is our homage to that old classic pulp mag. 

Available from Amazon and on Kindle.

Airship 27 Productions proudly presents the 13th Volume in its popular series, “Sherlock Holmes – Consulting Detective.” It features five new mysteries.

In their recorded exploits, Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson faced all kinds of mysteries; from the mundane to the most foul and insidious. They solved riddles involved with blackmail, thievery and murder, each with the same devotion to serving justice no matter the outcomes.

In this latest collection of the bestselling series, Holmes and Watson will deal with three women all claiming to the heir to a fortune, the brother of an old foe seeking revenge and a severed head sent to their apartment at 221 B Baker Street. Writers I.A. Watson, S. Subramanian, Fred Adams Jr. and Dexter Fabi have created thrilling new adventures that will challenge the detective duo in the most bizarre ways ever imagined.

A unique element of this volume is the cover by Michael Youngblood.  As Airship 27 Productions Manager explains, “For years, Sydney Paget was considered the premier Sherlock Holmes artist having done the illustrations for Arthur Conan Doyle’s original tales when they appeared in The Strand Magazine. Many of these are just as familiar as the stories themselves.”

Since the conception of the Consulting Detective series at Airship 27, Art Director Rob Davis has handled the illustrations. In the past ten years he has done over 150 gorgeous; several for which he won awards. Fortier continues, “I’m always saying Rob is the new Sydney Paget which led to this idea of taking one of Paget’s most popular pieces and having one of our artists do a cover interpretation of it. Which is what Michael Youngblood has done far exceeding our expectations.”

Quality stories and beautiful artwork, the hallmarks of Airship 27.


Available from Amazon and soon on Kindle.

Airship 27 Productions
AIRSHIP 27 & RADIO ARCHIVES
EXPANDING PARTNERSHIP

For the past several years Radio Archives, a leading audio book recorder, has been partnered with Airship 27 Productions. In that time, Radio Archives has produced 125 Airship 27 audiobooks and made them available via Amazon-Audible.com.

Effective Friday March 1st, 2019, Radio Archives will take over complete production of future Airship 27 titles and for the very first time sell them via their own popular website. Not only will New Pulp fans be able to purchase digital copies of these books, but CD sets as well. This is a first for Airship 27 Productions.

“Our association with Radio Archives has been nothing but beneficial to our little company,” reports Airship 27 Productions’ Managing Editor Ron Fortier. “With their recordings they have greatly increased our fan base. In fact this new evolution of having our books available on their site immediately opens 27 new distribution channels previously out of our reach.” Fortier adds, “Naturally that number 27 is a definite good omen for us.”

The first Airship 27 title to sell on the Radio Archives web store will be the recently released “CODENAME – INTREPID” by author Robert J. Mendenhall and is read by Paul Curtis. Fans can purchase either the digital download or the CD beginning on Friday. Also worth noting, all new titles will sell at a discounted 50% off cover price only during the first six days of the book’s posting. Fortier concludes, “We urge our Loyal Airmen to take advantage of this truly amazing deal and to also sign up for the Radio Archives Newsletter so that they do not miss future title releases.”

How could our nation, tricked and worn out with war, outwit the Blacks in their most gigantic attempt to conquer the western world?
