CELEBRATE THE KING OF COMICS’ BIRTHDAY AND HELP OUT SOME HEROES-- KIRBY 4 HEROES AT BORDERLANDS SATURDAY, AUGUST 29TH


Jack Kirby and a few of his friends.
Lance Star: Sky Ranger author Bobby Nash will be part of the Kirby4Heroes event this Saturday. We'll let him tell you all about it.

I don't sketch often, but when I do, it’s for a good cause.

Along with artists far more talented than me, I will be sketching for charity on Saturday August 29th at Borderlands Comics and Games for the Kirby4Heroes event to benefit the Heroes Initiative in Greenville, SC. I hope you'll join us. Also, if you've never been to Borderlands Comics and Games before, you're in for a treat. This is a great store run by my friend, Robert Young. It is definitely worth a visit. You won't be disappointed.

I look forward to seeing you there.

Bobby

AIRSHIP 27 PRODUCTIONS TEAMS UP WITH RADIO ARCHIVES FOR AUDIO PROJECTS

Airship 27 Productions and Radio Archives join forces to bring new audio productions together, including audio editions of several Airship 27 pulp anthology titles. Hopefully, we'll be hearing Lance Star: Sky Ranger's exploits in the coming year. Keep watching this space for more news as we have it.

OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE:

Airship 27 Productions, one of the best known of the New Pulp publishers today, is joining forces with Radio Archives, the leading voice in audiobooks to bring their action/adventure pulp titles to the exciting world of audiobooks.

“We couldn’t be happier about all this,” says Airship 27 Productions Managing Editor, Ron Fortier. “I love great storytelling in any media and have been a big fan of Radio Archives for several years now. How they bring books to life is simply fantastic and brings to mind memories of the golden days of radio.”

Airship 27 Productions was launched over ten years ago by Fortier, a veteran comic book and fantasy writer, along with his partner, professional graphic artist, Rob Davis, who serves as the company’s award winning Art Director. With over a hundred titles in their catalog, Airship 27 Productions is fueled by a stable of over fifty of the finest new pulp writers in the field and a cadre of over thirty amazing artists who provide the books’ interior illustrations and stunning covers for which they are recognized.

Initially begun to create new adventures of classic pulp heroes that had fallen into public domain, Airship 27 quickly expanded its subject matter allowing writers to whip up brand new heroes while at the same time delving into the popular worlds of such classic characters like Sherlock Holmes and Sinbad the Sailor.

“This new venture seems logical,” Fortier continues, “in the next evolutionary step for New Pulp. Radio Archives, under Tom Brown’s inspired leadership, has proven what they can do with classic pulp, now we’re all going to get to see them weave their unique magic on New Pulp. We couldn’t be more excited.”

Tom Brown of Radio Archives commented “We couldn’t be happier to work with Ron and Rob. You can see the passion they have in every book they publish. They are having a lot of fun.”

Tom further said “Audiobooks have been around for 40 years and are just becoming discovered in the last few years. With over a billion Smart Phones that can play audiobooks along with Amazon heavily promoting audiobooks combined with an average 53 minute
commute per day is causing the audiobook field to explode.”

Five years ago only 10% of books had an audiobook version and I believe that number will increase to 90% in the future. Customers now expect a successful publisher to offer an eBook and audiobook version along side their print books.”

As specific titles are chosen, both Radio Archives and Airship 27 Productions will continue to promote each as they become available via press releases and other media marketing tools.

Airship 27 Productions announces the release of its newest pulp anthology.  Rev up those Pratt-Whitney engines, pull back on the stick and prepare for take-off, as LANCE STAR – SKY RANGER gets ready to soar into the clouds in this, his fourth volume of high flying adventures.

Back Cover
Once again its time to join America’s aviation ace, Lance Star and his faithful team; Buck Tellonger, Cy Hawkins, Jim Nolan and Red Davis as they fly into four brand new hair-raising tales.  From discovering a hidden Nazis base on lost South Seas Island inhabited by prehistoric monsters to foiling an assassination attempt on President Roosevelt, the Sky Rangers travel globe tackling danger wherever they go.

The Lance Star: Sky Ranger series follows in the grand tradition of popular pulp favorites and Dusty Ayers, Bill Barnes, G-8 & His Flying Aces and dozens of other winged warriors of the clouds.

“When you’re company name is Airship 27 Productions,” says Managing Editor Ron Fortier, “you’d better believe we have a real love of flying heroes and Lance Star: Sky Ranger is at the top of that list.”

Vol. 4 cover
So goose your fuel lines, spin the props of your Skybolts and Skeeter and prepare yourself for classic pulp action.  Writers Bobby Nash, Sean Taylor, Andrew Salmon and Jim Beard have delivered a quartet of fast paced, high soaring stories to keep you buckled up tight.

This volume features a cover by popular graphic artist, Felipe Echavarria with interior illustrations by Warbirds of Mars’ own Scott “Doc” Vaughn.

Bobby Nash's story in this volume is called "Ring of Fire."
Lance and the Sky Rangers find themselves on a volcanic island ready to erupt. If that wasn't enough to keep them busy, they also find themselves facing off against Nazis and flying creatures from the past that should not exist in the modern world. Can the Sky Rangers disrupt the Nazis' plans and get everyone off the island before the volcano erupts?

WHAT YEAR IS IT AGAIN?


Lance Star: Sky Ranger writers Bobby Nash and Sean Taylor were part of the Bad Girls, Good Guys, and Two-Fisted Action Blog's Writer's Roundtable discussion this week. This time around they, along with several other authors, discuss their favorite time periods to write.

"My preference is to do stories set in modern times so I can explore the world outside my window." -- Bobby Nash

This week's Writer Roundtable is another from the open call for ideas and topics. With many of the writers I know and love being period writers, this one really grabbed my attention when a reader suggested it. So keep those suggestions coming and we'll keep sending them to the roundtable for the peanut gallery to respond to.
