Airship 27 Productions
DEAD MAN’S MELODY

Now available!

Airship 27 Productions is proud to announce the release of Fred Adams Jr.’ s newest mystery novel, “Dead Man’s Melody.”  This is the first in a series by one of New Pulp’s finest new writers.

Fifteen years ago Sam Dunne was the lead guitarist and singer for the popular rock band, Gin Sing.  Critics and fans prophesied a meteoric rising the top of the music charts.  Then his bandmates, Eddie Shay and Danny Barton, kicked him to the curb and went chasing after rock stardom without him.

Now Dunne works small one night gigs while teaching English Lit at a community college.  He’s let the past go and learned to accept things as they are.  Then one morning he turns on the radio to learn Shay has been murdered, shot to death in his private home studio.

Soon the police start focusing their attention Dunne as a “person of interest.”  It’s a custom made set up, with him as the chief suspect due to a fifteen year old grudge he’s suppose to be nurturing. When common sense proves to be useless, the former rocker is left with only one recourse; to do his own investigating and find the killer before he’s fitted with a prison wardrobe.

“Fred Adams is not just a good writer,” says Airship 27 Productions’ Managing Editor Ron Fortier. “He’s far and away the best new writer to enter the New Pulp market in the last ten years.  And that’s no exaggeration on my part.  A former college teacher of English Composition, Adams technical know-how is evident immediately in any of his works. What is the surprise is that intangible storytelling gift he displays.  His stories pull readers effortlessly into whatever scenario his mind has whipped up and instantly takes them along for the ride.  Honestly, reading a Fred Adams book is like the best damn desert you ever ate.”

Now writer Fred Adams Jr. spins a gritty, fascinating mystery authentically set in the world of sex, drugs and rock roll delivering a masterful reading experience along the way.   Artist Richard Jun provides the black and white interior illustrations and Rob Davis, award winning Art Director for Airship 27 provides the cover.  All of which make “Dead Man’s Melody” is clearly a cut above the rest.

Now available at Amazon.com and on Kindle.

Clinton Family Film Festival - Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Trouble With Harry”

At 7:00 pm on Saturday, September 10th the Clinton Family Film Festival will present Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Trouble With Harry”. 
The screening will be at Andrews Memorial Town Hall, 54 East Main Street in Clinton.  Admission is FREE.

September in Connecticut, as we all know, is when the leaves begin to change color. Yellow.  Orange. Red. Thus, it’s the appropriate month to screen this delightful, lighthearted movie, for these same magnificent colors are throughout this Hitchcock film.  Here you will meet the quirky but down-to-earth residents of a small Vermont village faced with the freshly dead body of Harry Worp, which has inconveniently appeared on a hillside above the town. The problem of who the dead person is, who was responsible for his sudden death, and what should be done with his body is "the trouble with Harry".  For three of the main characters in the film each believe that he or she is the person who killed him. 

The stellar cast includes Edmund Gwenn, Mildred Natwick, John Forsythe and Shirley MacLaine, (in her motion picture debut) and Jerry Mathers. The screenplay is based upon a 1950 novel by Jack Trevor Story.

Kids under the age of 14 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.   Hope you can join us!

At the conclusion of the classic TARZAN OF THE APES by Edgar Rice Burroughs, Tarzan is despondent but assured he did what was honorable by enabling Jane to leave with his cousin, William Clayton (who believes he is the rightful heir to the Greystoke estate and can appropriately provide for Jane when they marry). But what then? There has never been an explanation of Tarzan’s activities after his presence in Wisconsin and before he begins his voyage back to Africa—until now!

This story is full of fantasy, imaginative fiction and adventure – It grabs your attention from the beginning and keeps it to the very end. As Tarzan travels north, you will have visions of Canada that will make you feel as if you are there, touching and feeling all that Tarzan does. Thinking time and again that Tarzan’s demise is imminent, he escapes only to encounter still more dangers, with each episode building more suspense and anticipation for the next. Tarzan’s discovery of a lost Viking civilization and the author’s description and explanation of it will bring you a clear picture of village life and the gruesome realities of their existence.

While you may think this is a novel of pure fiction, archaeologists are continuing to discover new Viking sites in North America. Just recently, satellite technology has revealed intriguing evidence of a second Norse settlement further south than ever before known. A new Canadian site was discovered after infrared images from 400 miles in space showed possible man-made impressions under layers of vegetation with telltale signs of iron working. And now you will have the opportunity, while joining Tarzan, to unearth and experience this new discovery.

Of course, TARZAN ON THE PRECIPICE has a double meaning. He is indeed chained with his life hanging in the balance on the precipice of a volcanic crater, but he is also on the precipice of the rest of his life, not knowing his future, abandoning his right of birth as an English Lord and bereft of the thing in life he cherishes most, Jane. All that is left for him now is Africa, which is at least known to him. Enjoy this tale and join Tarzan on his Canadian adventure as he prepares to return to Africa and a future even he cannot predict.

ILLUSTRATED BIBLIOGRAPHY OF EDGAR RICE BURROUGHS RELEASED
ERB Inc. publishes the “definitive bibliography” by Dr. Robert B. Zeuschner
Now available!


Tarzana, CA: Edgar Rice Burroughs Incorporated today announced the release of the long-awaited definitive bibliography of the Master of Adventure by longtime Burroughs scholar Dr. Robert B. Zeuschner. The illustrated hardbound volume ships today in two hardbound editions.

Edgar Rice Burroughs, well known for his tales of Tarzan and John Carter of Mars, has been rightfully dubbed The Master of Adventure, but few are aware of the full scope of Burroughs’ literary output in a writing career that spanned four decades. During his lifetime, Burroughs created worlds that ranged from the Earth's core to the Farthest Star, inhabited by larger-than-life heroes and heroines, populated by unimaginable creatures and captivating landscapes.

“We are absolutely thrilled to publish this very special book, which has been almost twenty years in the making,” said Jim Sullos, President of Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc. “We opened our archives to Dr. Zeuschner and he has produced the definitive account of everything published by Edgar Rice Burroughs. This is a one-of-a-kind illustrated bibliography that should be a must for anyone interested in ERB, the history of pulp fiction and the works that inspired Superman and every other pulp hero since.”

The Bibliography features over 2000 annotated, illustrated entries describing ERB publications from 1911 to the present and 500 color images including 1st & reprint edition books & dustjackets, paperbacks and the 97 ERB story-related pulp covers. Both editions are 7 by 10 inch hardcover books.


Two editions are available in limited numbers:

THE STANDARD EDITION: ISBN: 978-1-945462-00-9 - $100.00
First edition bound in midnight blue Cialux Italian book cloth with the spine and front cover decorations stamped in gilt. Color wrap-around dust jacket, 736 pages; 600+ images, 500 + in color on glossy stock. Limited to 900 copies

THE DELUXE EDITION: ISBN: 978-1-945462-01-6 - $150.00
First edition bound in genuine red leather with a hub spine and cover decorations stamped in gilt. Limited to 375 signed (by the author, publisher, designer and John Ralston Burroughs, the grandson of ERB) and numbered copies. 736 pages; 600+ images, 500 + in color on glossy stock. Edgar Rice Burroughs: The Bibliography by Dr. Robert B. Zeuschner, will be released August 18th, 2016. Orders can be placed through the books website or by emailing the publisher, Jim Gerlach.

SKYLARK THREE

Among science fiction enthusiasts, among general readers who enjoy a narrative that stirs the imagination, Dr. Edward E. Smnith is gaining an ever-widening circle of followers. He has become the author of interplanetary fiction. Three books have preceded "Skylark Three" — "The Skylark of Space", "Space-hounds of IPC", and "Triplanetary" — and each has been received with greater enthusiasm than its predecessor.

"Skylark Three", though a complete story in itself, continues the adventures of Richard Seaton, Marc DuQuesne, Dunark of Kondal and others introduced in "The Skylark of Space". Strange beings on strange worlds are created by the tacile pen and fertile imagination of Dr. Smith. Scientific wonders and adventures merge in a tale that is certain to hold the reader's interest from the very first page.

Basically, "Skylark Three" is the story of Dr. Richard Seaton's quest for knowledge with which to combat the vastly superior science of the Fenachrone, a semi-human race of beings from a distant solar system, who threaten the very existence of countless civilized worlds. Somewhere, Seaton believes, must live a cure whose knowledge is greater than that of the invaders.

The Mayor of Hell

by Norvell W. Page writing as Grant Stockbridge
Read by Nick Santa Maria

Now available!

In that single, unguarded moment while he played his precious Stradivarius, the combined forces of the Mayor of Hell — the crooked Law and the vengeful Underworld — besieged Richard Wentworth, otherwise known as the Spider, nemesis of criminals! Mourned as dead, the Spider must start life anew, without friends or funds or hidden refuge, so that the Mayor of Hell’s bloody-handed henchmen — who judge no deed too base, who respect neither man nor God — may find their just reward — in death!

 
During the Golden Age of Pulp Fiction, three publications ranked as the most popular: The Shadow, Doc Savage, and the Spider. The great pulp magazines of the 1930s and 40s produced a number of heroes, but none as action-oriented as the Spider. For almost exactly a decade, from October 1933 to December 1943, the Spider was the scourge of the Underworld, doling out his own particular brand of justice and imprinting his dreaded red Spider seal on the foreheads of those he has killed for the good of mankind.
 
The Spider followed the established pulp pattern of a wealthy man-about-town, Richard Wentworth III, master of disguise, dilettante of the arts, in perfect physical condition, and completely devoted to the pursuit of justice for the down-trodden, no matter what the cost to himself or loved ones. Secretly donning a decrepit black hat, a tattered black cape, a false hunch to his shoulders, a lank wig of stringy hair, an application of sinister face makeup and a pair of .45 automatics, Wentworth prowls the streets of New York as his alter-ego the Spider, chasing down criminal masterminds bent on enslaving or destroying humanity. Much of the action takes place in the tenements and slums, the poor and lower classes victimized as readily as the rich.
 
Nick Santa Maria brings the action to electrifying life. The Mayor of Hell originally published in The Spider magazine, January, 1936.

The Devil in Iron Audio CD – Audiobook, MP3 Audio


Conan the Barbarian’s desires for the fair sex end up leading him into trouble. This time the beautiful, golden-haired, noble-born Octavia, lures him into a trap set by his most powerful enemies―a trap from which there seems to be no escape. But on the long-deserted island of Xapur, where he goes to capture this crafty beauty, it is not just mortal enemies that await him.

A demon that crawled up from the abyss many eons ago, and is of a substance as hard as iron, has been awakened and is intent on crushing Conan and his woman. Conan is up against a foe much stronger than he is, and one he cannot kill with normal weapons. Will he finally be crushed beneath the iron fists of this devil? And will Conan finally meet his match in this fierce but scantily clad woman or will she finally yield to him?

The kingdom of Khauran is small, but has an abundance of rich soil, hard-working inhabitants, and much gold. Most importantly, it has a sweet, young queen who is as wise and kind as she is beautiful. When her evil twin sister, a witch, captures and secretly replaces her, devil worship, human sacrifice, and other strange and evil things are introduced to the Kingdom.

Under the witch’s rule, Conan the Barbarian, who was the captain of the queen's guard, is captured and sentenced to crucifixion in the desert. But rather than be disposed of so easily, Conan is focused on an ambitious plan to escape his captors and restore the Kingdom. Excitement and intrigue―as well as battle, blood, and demons―await him.

Pigeons from Hell Audio CD – Audiobook, MP3 Audio

Robert E. Howard, best known as the creator of Conan the Barbarian, also wrote stories in a diverse range of genres. He was particularly masterful with horror stories. This 1938 spell-binding story is one of his best. In 1983, Stephen King, wrote that he considered Pigeons from Hell to be "one of the finest horror stories of our century." With a decaying Southern family, a gruesome murder, a strange sort of "undead" creature, and, of course, evil pigeons, it makes for a story that will send a chill down your backbone.

Over forty years ago, Philip Jose Farmer published a pair of officially sanctioned books recounting the history of ancient Opar, the lost civilization familiar to readers of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Tarzan novels. Opar was the first of the author’s lost cities that survived undiscovered in the African jungle until the noble apeman came along. Burroughs’ lost civilizations, like his alien worlds, were fantastic places of adventure that allowed the author to sharpen his satiric blade and skewer organized religion and politics alike.

Airship 27 Productions
RICK LAI'S MAJOR SABBATH
Now available!

Airship 27 Productions is thrilled to be teaming up with New Pulp author and historian, Rick Lain in debuting a new hero born in the Italian Spaghetti Westerns.

Throughout the history of American western movies, iconic characters were used over and over again until they became stables of these cowboy flicks.  There were always the good guys portrayed as the pioneers, farmers, and lawmen whereas the other side of the coin had the outlaws, raiding Indians and tyrannical cattle barons.  It seemed if you were doing a western, these types were always present. 

But when the 1960s debut the invasion of Italian made oaters, a little used character suddenly seemed to take center stage; the bounty hunter.  He was the cold, calculating man in black who hunted the meanest, deadliest owlhoots for a cash reward.

“The thing we try to do every day here at Airship 27 is be receptive to really new and fun ideas for our books,” says Managing Editor Ron Fortier.  “This particular project was born at the Windy City Pulp & Paper convention two years ago when Rick brought up this idea of doing a fictional series based on a recurring character in the Spaghetti movies he and I both love.”

Inspired by these action-packed Spaghetti Westerns, writer Rick Lai has created a terrific new hero in Major Sabbath.  A veteran of the Civil War, he now roams the Wild West as the most efficient manhunter of them all.  Lai, along with Erik Franklin and Frank Schildiner, offer up a trio of gun-blasting tales featuring this man with the penetrating angel eyes and lightning fast draw. Once you meet Major Sabbath, you’ll never forget him.

Popular artist Pat Carbajal provides the cover and Michael Dean Jackson the interior illustrations.  The book also features an extensive article on the Van Cleef’s history in the Italian cinema with its focus on this iconic bounty hunter hero.  In all, there’s more all out shoot’em action between these pages than in a dozen other westerns.  “Rick Lai’s Major Sabbaoth” is truly one of a kind.

Jon C. Breuning : "The Midnight Guardian Hour of Darkness"
Author John Breuning talks with us about his first novel "The Midnight Guardian : Hour of Darkness"  from Flinch books. This is a classic pulp hero adventure set in the 1930s in a town called Union City.  The protagonist is typical for this kind of period piece.  He uses his Yankee ingenuity, American know-how, and commitment to what is right to combat a classic pulp villain with few - if any - redeeming qualities.  This novel has had rave reviews across the internet and it is a tale that builds momentum and comes to a shattering climax.  If you are a fan of Doc Savage, The Shadow, The Avenger, or any of the other great pulp heroes, this story is for you!

Edgar Rice Burroughs
TARZAN ON THE PRECIPICE by Michael A Sanford
Now available in softcover!

At the conclusion of the classic TARZAN OF THE APES by Edgar Rice Burroughs, Tarzan is despondent but assured he did what was honorable by enabling Jane to leave with his cousin, William Clayton (who believes he is the rightful heir to the Greystoke estate and can appropriately provide for Jane when they marry). But what then? There has never been an explanation of Tarzan’s activities after his presence in Wisconsin and before he begins his voyage back to Africa—until now!

This story is full of fantasy, imaginative fiction and adventure – It grabs your attention from the beginning and keeps it to the very end. As Tarzan travels north, you will have visions of Canada that will make you feel as if you are there, touching and feeling all that Tarzan does. Thinking time and again that Tarzan’s demise is imminent, he escapes only to encounter still more dangers, with each episode building more suspense and anticipation for the next. Tarzan’s discovery of a lost Viking civilization and the author’s description and explanation of it will bring you a clear picture of village life and the gruesome realities of their existence.

While you may think this is a novel of pure fiction, archaeologists are continuing to discover new Viking sites in North America. Just recently, satellite technology has revealed intriguing evidence of a second Norse settlement further south than ever before known. A new Canadian site was discovered after infrared images from 400 miles in space showed possible man-made impressions under layers of vegetation with telltale signs of iron working. And now you will have the opportunity, while joining Tarzan, to unearth and experience this new discovery.

Of course, TARZAN ON THE PRECIPICE has a double meaning. He is indeed chained with his life hanging in the balance on the precipice of a volcanic crater, but he is also on the precipice of the rest of his life, not knowing his future, abandoning his right of birth as an English Lord and bereft of the thing in life he cherishes most, Jane. All that is left for him now is Africa, which is at least known to him. Enjoy this tale and join Tarzan on his Canadian adventure as he prepares to return to Africa and a future even he cannot predict.

ERB Books 
ILLUSTRATED BIBLIOGRAPHY OF EDGAR RICE BURROUGHS RELEASED
ERB Inc. publishes the “definitive bibliography” by Dr. Robert B. Zeuschner
Now available!

Pre-order discount extended to August 23!

Tarzana, CA: Edgar Rice Burroughs Incorporated today announced the release of the long-awaited definitive bibliography of the Master of Adventure by longtime Burroughs scholar Dr. Robert B. Zeuschner. The illustrated hardbound volume ships today in two hardbound editions.

Edgar Rice Burroughs, well known for his tales of Tarzan and John Carter of Mars, has been rightfully dubbed The Master of Adventure, but few are aware of the full scope of Burroughs’ literary output in a writing career that spanned four decades. During his lifetime, Burroughs created worlds that ranged from the Earth's core to the Farthest Star, inhabited by larger-than-life heroes and heroines, populated by unimaginable creatures and captivating landscapes.

“We are absolutely thrilled to publish this very special book, which has been almost twenty years in the making,” said Jim Sullos, President of Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc. “We opened our archives to Dr. Zeuschner and he has produced the definitive account of everything published by Edgar Rice Burroughs. This is a one-of-a-kind illustrated bibliography that should be a must for anyone interested in ERB, the history of pulp fiction and the works that inspired Superman and every other pulp hero since.”

The Bibliography features over 2000 annotated, illustrated entries describing ERB publications from 1911 to the present and 500 color images including 1st & reprint edition books & dustjackets, paperbacks and the 97 ERB story-related pulp covers. Both editions are 7 by 10 inch hardcover books.

PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A PRE-ORDER. THE BOOK WILL BE RELEASED IN EARLY 2017.

C[atherine] L[ucile] Moore (1911–1987) was an author of weird and science fiction tales living in Indianapolis, and another late correspondent of HPL, who had enjoyed her early tales, especially “Shambleau” and “Black Thirst”. Lovecraft came in touch with her in 1934 when R. H. Barlow wished to publish some of her tales and asked HPL to write to her about it. In his letters HPL keenly discusses the current political and economic situation and the interplay of economics and artistic creation; he repeatedly advised Moore not to buckle down to hackwork for the pulps. HPL’s letters to her survive only in fragments, but he kept hers, doubtless because they seemed to him of enduring interest. The letters of C. L. Moore to Lovecraft are presented here for the first time, forming a literary conversation.

Science fiction writer Henry Kuttner (1915–1958) came in touch with HPL late in Lovecraft's live and their correspondence lasted from February 1936 to February 1937 During this time HPL assisted on the topographical background for Kuttner's “The Salem Horror”, a story clearly influenced by “The Dreams in the Witch House.” In May 1936 HPL asked Kuttner to pass on some photographs to C. L. Moore, thereby introducing the two authors to each other. They married in 1940 and collaboratively wrote some of the most imaginative work in the “Golden Age” of science fiction.

Fritz Leiber (1910–1992) wrote some of the most distinguished science fiction, fantasy, and horror literature of the century and is perhaps the only one of HPL’s colleagues who can rival him in literary substance. He and his wife Jonquil corresponded with HPL during the last six months of his life, during which time HPL read a draft of Leiber’s “Adept’s Gambit” (the first Fafhrd and Gray Mouser story), and in a lengthy letter of December 19, 1936, suggested numerous alterations.

Exhaustively annotated by leading Lovecraft scholars David E. Schultz and S. T. Joshi, this volume illuminates one of the great literary personalities of his time—and in his own words. The letters are presented with detailed notes and commentary.

In the 1980s, S. T. Joshi prepared revised editions of H. P. Lovecraft’s stories for Arkham House. Basing his work on consultation of manuscripts, early publications, and other sources, Joshi corrected thousands of errors in the existing texts of Lovecraft’s fiction, allowing readers to appreciate the stories as Lovecraft originally wrote them.

In the thirty years that have followed, Joshi has continued to do research on the textual accuracy of Lovecraft’s stories, and this comprehensive new edition is the result. For the first time, students and scholars of Lovecraft can see at a glance all the textual variants in all relevant appearances of a story—manuscript, first publication in magazines, and first book publications. The result is an illuminating record of the textual history of the tales, along with how Lovecraft significantly revised his stories after initial publication.

Along the way, Joshi has made small but significant revisions to his earlier corrected texts. He has determined, for example, that Lovecraft slightly revised some stories when a reprint of them was scheduled in Weird Tales, and he has altered some readings in light of a better understanding of Lovecraft’s customary linguistic usages.

The result is the definitive text of Lovecraft’s fiction—an edition that supersedes all those that preceded it and should endure as the standard text of Lovecraft’s stories for many years.

Volume 1:
In this first volume, Lovecraft’s earliest stories are printed in chronological order by date of writing. Included are such early triumphs as “Dagon” and “The Outsider,” along with the many tales Lovecraft wrote under the inspiration of Lord Dunsany. The celebrated “Herbert West—Reanimator” and “The Rats in the Walls” show Lovecraft experimenting with longer narratives—a tendency that will culminate in the novelettes and novellas of his final decade of writing.

Volume 2:
In this second volume, the tales that Lovecraft wrote immediately after returning to his native Providence, R.I., from two years of “exile” in New York are presented. The landmark tale “The Call of Cthulhu” was only the tip of the iceberg of a flood of stories he wrote in 1926–27, which include the two short novels The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath and The Case of Charles Dexter Ward. “The Colour out of Space” is a pioneering tale that initiates Lovecraft’s distinctive melding of horror and science fiction, while “The Dunwich Horror” and “The Whisperer in Darkness” are rich novellas simultaneously evoking terrors from outer space and the brooding darkness of the New England backwoods.

Volume 3:
In this final volume, the tales of Lovecraft’s final years are presented. The Antarctic novella At the Mountains of Madness is perhaps Lovecraft’s most finished work, a superb fusion of weirdness and science fiction that he referred to as “cosmicism.” “The Shadow over Innsmouth” is a chilling evocation of the terrors inherent in a lonely New England backwater, while “The Thing on the Doorstep” and “The Haunter of the Dark” feature physical horrors with cosmic implications. “The Shadow out of Time” is the culmination of Lovecraft’s portrayal of the vast vistas of space and time—his signature contribution to literature.

iPulpFiction.com
Pulp Preservation Project
Our goal is to preserve the legacy of an entire class of American literature
and make it accessible to the mobile generation.

New Kickstarter campaign (July 18 - August 16)!

On July 18th, iPulpFiction.com launched a Kickstarter campaign of vital importance the legacy of American literature and pop culture of the first half of the 20th century.

It’s a literary legacy that was the source of countless film and television shows like Amazing Stories, Buck Rogers, Doc Savage, Perry Mason, Tarzan, and Zorro. 
Even today it influences directors such as Quentin Tarantino, Shane Black, the Coen brothers, and Steven Spielberg.

A Legacy in Danger
Pulp fiction magazines were a huge part of American pop culture in the first half of the twentieth century. If you have any doubts about the importance of pulp fiction in American literature, here are a few pulp authors you may have heard of: Isaac  Asimov, Charles Beaumont, Leigh Brackett, Ray Bradbury, Max Brand, Edgar Rice Burroughs, William S. Burroughs, Raymond Chandler, Agatha Christie, Arthur C. Clarke, Joseph Conrad, Stephen Crane, Lester Dent, Philip K. Dick, Philip José Farmer, C. S. Forester, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Erle Stanley Gardner, Zane Grey, Dashiell Hammett, Robert A. Heinlein, O. Henry, Frank Herbert, Robert E. Howard, L. Ron Hubbard, Rudyard Kipling, Louis L'Amour, Elmore Leonard, Jack London, H. P. Lovecraft, John D. MacDonald, Richard Matheson, Johnston McCulley, Ellery Queen, Upton Sinclair, Mickey Spillane, Tennessee Williams, and many others who will be forgotten if their bodies of work are not preserved.

Collectors may preserve physical copies of pulp magazines, but the volumes are slid into archival sleeves and stored in a dark place. The literature in those magazines is very rarely read. And even in their protective cases, the magazines' poor quality pulp paper is slowly disintegrating.

Time is running out to save the works of these authors.

Preserving the Legacy
The 
iPulpFiction.com Pulp Preservation Project is about bringing this wealth of forgotten American literature to the mobile generation. Our objective is to preserve the legacy of an entire class of literature. Many of these stories have never been reprinted since their original publication, making the Pulp Preservation Project a rich research tool for scholars as well as a boon to pulp fans and casual readers.

There will be two sets of classic pulp collections on the site:
(1)  The free public collection of public domain issues
(2)  The premium all-you-can-read subscription service of copyrighted content licensed from premium content holders such as Steeger Properties, LLC and Altus Press.

Lovecraft Illustrated Vol 10 – The Mound [hardcover] by H. P. Lovecraft


SYNOPSIS
The Mound is possibly the “undiscovered Lovecraft” epic—long relegated to the dust-bin of so-called “revisions” this short novel comes very close to the quality and scope of Lovecraft’s finest, rivaling even The Shadow Out of Time or At the Mountains of Madness in scope. It tells of a hidden underground world and details no less than another history of life on our planet, evoking Cthulhu, Yig and Clark Ashton Smith’s Tsathoggua, their disciples and some grisly re-animated corpse variations sure to curdle the blood of the imaginative reader!

Lovecraft Illustrated Vol 11 – The Haunter of the Dark [hardcover] by H. P. Lovecraft


SYNOPSIS
The Haunter of the Dark is presented here with the Robert Bloch story that inspired it, The Shambler from the Stars, and Bloch’s later rejoinder, The Shadow from the Steeple, which comprise a trilogy of sorts. The Haunter provides a glimpse into a dark sect and their secret laid in an old Providence church. Also included is The Thing on the Doorstep, an identity swapping tale of fiendish proportions and the short but powerful piece, Nyarlathotep, perhaps a prescient and chilling glimpse into our future?

Lovecraft Illustrated Vol 12 – The Case of CHarles Dexter Ward [hardcover] by H. P. Lovecraft

SYNOPSIS
In The Case of Charles Dexter Ward Lovecraft puts forth one of the most horrifying concepts of his career—a trio of grave-robbers are systematically rifling the tombs of the world’s most brilliant men—men who also possessed occult and arcane secrets thought to be long lost. In the hands of these monstrous ghouls, the dead are resurrected from bones and dust and extorted endlessly for their secrets! It’s the story also of a hapless young man who finds he is just a pawn in this deadly game and a doctor who discovers the plot and finds he is the only man who can fight it.

John Pelan obviously has a taste for Zagat and his introduction explains why.
And doesn't Gavin O'Keefe's cover art show Zagat's hunger for all things poached -- and perhaps fried?
   Bone appetite!

SKYSHIPS OVER INNSMOUTH by Susan Laine - Now available!

Twenty winters have passed since the Cataclysm brought down society and robbed people of their memories. Humanity, vastly reduced in numbers since the initial chaos, has started anew in Canal City with the aid of library books and steam technology. The Scout and Ranger Corps was established to search for possible survivors and to replenish dwindling resources.
 
Dev is the captain of the scout airship Smoke Sparrow, and Shay is the scholar of their newest expedition. Their destination is Innsmouth, Massachusetts, a small fishing town that is mentioned in obscure books but shows up on no maps. Might its secrets offer answers? But within the fog-covered, ruined hillside town by the bay lurk unspeakable dangers and horrors beyond imagining. The expedition team soon learns that Innsmouth is one town that should have been left forgotten.

The Devil in Iron Audio CD – Audiobook, MP3 Audio


Conan the Barbarian’s desires for the fair sex end up leading him into trouble. This time the beautiful, golden-haired, noble-born Octavia, lures him into a trap set by his most powerful enemies―a trap from which there seems to be no escape. But on the long-deserted island of Xapur, where he goes to capture this crafty beauty, it is not just mortal enemies that await him.

A demon that crawled up from the abyss many eons ago, and is of a substance as hard as iron, has been awakened and is intent on crushing Conan and his woman. Conan is up against a foe much stronger than he is, and one he cannot kill with normal weapons. Will he finally be crushed beneath the iron fists of this devil? And will Conan finally meet his match in this fierce but scantily clad woman or will she finally yield to him?

Will his evil enemies or the seductive women finally succeed in making him beg for mercy? Listen and find out. Caution: There is some sex, lots of (justified) violence, and the women are all equally voluptuous, independent, yielding, and very dangerous.

Witch Shall Be Born Audio CD – Audiobook, MP3 Audio

The kingdom of Khauran is small, but has an abundance of rich soil, hard-working inhabitants, and much gold. Most importantly, it has a sweet, young queen who is as wise and kind as she is beautiful. When her evil twin sister, a witch, captures and secretly replaces her, devil worship, human sacrifice, and other strange and evil things are introduced to the Kingdom.

Under the witch’s rule, Conan the Barbarian, who was the captain of the queen's guard, is captured and sentenced to crucifixion in the desert. But rather than be disposed of so easily, Conan is focused on an ambitious plan to escape his captors and restore the Kingdom. Excitement and intrigue―as well as battle, blood, and demons―await him.

Pigeons from Hell Audio CD – Audiobook, MP3 Audio

Robert E. Howard, best known as the creator of Conan the Barbarian, also wrote stories in a diverse range of genres. He was particularly masterful with horror stories. This 1938 spell-binding story is one of his best. In 1983, Stephen King, wrote that he considered Pigeons from Hell to be "one of the finest horror stories of our century." With a decaying Southern family, a gruesome murder, a strange sort of "undead" creature, and, of course, evil pigeons, it makes for a story that will send a chill down your backbone.

Airship 27 Productions
RICK LAI'S MAJOR SABBATH
Now available!

Airship 27 Productions is thrilled to be teaming up with New Pulp author and historian, Rick Lain in debuting a new hero born in the Italian Spaghetti Westerns.

Throughout the history of American western movies, iconic characters were used over and over again until they became stables of these cowboy flicks.  There were always the good guys portrayed as the pioneers, farmers, and lawmen whereas the other side of the coin had the outlaws, raiding Indians and tyrannical cattle barons.  It seemed if you were doing a western, these types were always present. 

But when the 1960s debut the invasion of Italian made oaters, a little used character suddenly seemed to take center stage; the bounty hunter.  He was the cold, calculating man in black who hunted the meanest, deadliest owlhoots for a cash reward.

“The thing we try to do every day here at Airship 27 is be receptive to really new and fun ideas for our books,” says Managing Editor Ron Fortier.  “This particular project was born at the Windy City Pulp & Paper convention two years ago when Rick brought up this idea of doing a fictional series based on a recurring character in the Spaghetti movies he and I both love.”

Inspired by these action-packed Spaghetti Westerns, writer Rick Lai has created a terrific new hero in Major Sabbath.  A veteran of the Civil War, he now roams the Wild West as the most efficient manhunter of them all.  Lai, along with Erik Franklin and Frank Schildiner, offer up a trio of gun-blasting tales featuring this man with the penetrating angel eyes and lightning fast draw. Once you meet Major Sabbath, you’ll never forget him.

Popular artist Pat Carbajal provides the cover and Michael Dean Jackson the interior illustrations.  The book also features an extensive article on the Van Cleef’s history in the Italian cinema with its focus on this iconic bounty hunter hero.  In all, there’s more all out shoot’em action between these pages than in a dozen other westerns.  “Rick Lai’s Major Sabbaoth” is truly one of a kind.

Strange Days : An Argent Universe novel by Jeff Deischer

Author Jeff Deischer  gives us the 4th book in his Argent universe series.  The Argent Universe is an homage to the comics of the Silver Age with which fellows like Jeff and I enjoyed while growing up.  Strange Days is an action packed novel with many plot twists.  It focuses on the "second tier" heroes of those days and brings back the type of adventure we all know and loved about the comics of the 60s and 70s.  It is an ideal summer beach book.

BATTLEFIELD EARTH: 21st Century Edition - Now available!
by L. Ron Hubbard


In response to the Voyager launched in 1977, an alien race, the Psychlos, remorselessly wiped out the humans with a poisonous gas barrage, and ground and air bombings. They killed more than 99.9% of the people on Earth, not to mention their sadistic hunting sprees of people for pure pleasure for the ensuing 1,000 years.  Now, there are about 3,000 Psychlos stationed on Earth, mining her remaining natural resources, and mankind is an endangered species.

Terl, the greedy and sadistic Psychlo Planetary Security Chief assigned to Earth, has a selfish plan for a future of abundance and prosperity.  This plan requires enslaving humans to mine precious gold in the treacherous Rocky Mountains, and then wiping out all of the evidence, including all remaining human life.

Enslaved by Terl, Jonnie Goodboy Tyler must turn a small desperate band of the last survivors into a tightly coordinated rebel force.

Pitted against impossible odds, they must outsmart this cunning and vicious alien adversary that has conquered all opposition throughout the galaxy into total oblivion.

Is Jonnie’s fight to save humanity from these gigantic, technologically superior, and cruel monsters a losing battle where mankind will become forever extinct? Or will humans regain the Earth once more after centuries of domination by the alien invaders in this high-stakes science fiction adventure?

Experience the book that changed the shape of science fiction forever.

PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A PRE-ORDER. THE BOOK WILL BE RELEASED IN EARLY 2017.

C[atherine] L[ucile] Moore (1911–1987) was an author of weird and science fiction tales living in Indianapolis, and another late correspondent of HPL, who had enjoyed her early tales, especially “Shambleau” and “Black Thirst”. Lovecraft came in touch with her in 1934 when R. H. Barlow wished to publish some of her tales and asked HPL to write to her about it. In his letters HPL keenly discusses the current political and economic situation and the interplay of economics and artistic creation; he repeatedly advised Moore not to buckle down to hackwork for the pulps. HPL’s letters to her survive only in fragments, but he kept hers, doubtless because they seemed to him of enduring interest. The letters of C. L. Moore to Lovecraft are presented here for the first time, forming a literary conversation.

Science fiction writer Henry Kuttner (1915–1958) came in touch with HPL late in Lovecraft's live and their correspondence lasted from February 1936 to February 1937 During this time HPL assisted on the topographical background for Kuttner's “The Salem Horror”, a story clearly influenced by “The Dreams in the Witch House.” In May 1936 HPL asked Kuttner to pass on some photographs to C. L. Moore, thereby introducing the two authors to each other. They married in 1940 and collaboratively wrote some of the most imaginative work in the “Golden Age” of science fiction.

Fritz Leiber (1910–1992) wrote some of the most distinguished science fiction, fantasy, and horror literature of the century and is perhaps the only one of HPL’s colleagues who can rival him in literary substance. He and his wife Jonquil corresponded with HPL during the last six months of his life, during which time HPL read a draft of Leiber’s “Adept’s Gambit” (the first Fafhrd and Gray Mouser story), and in a lengthy letter of December 19, 1936, suggested numerous alterations.

Exhaustively annotated by leading Lovecraft scholars David E. Schultz and S. T. Joshi, this volume illuminates one of the great literary personalities of his time—and in his own words. The letters are presented with detailed notes and commentary.

In the 1980s, S. T. Joshi prepared revised editions of H. P. Lovecraft’s stories for Arkham House. Basing his work on consultation of manuscripts, early publications, and other sources, Joshi corrected thousands of errors in the existing texts of Lovecraft’s fiction, allowing readers to appreciate the stories as Lovecraft originally wrote them.

In the thirty years that have followed, Joshi has continued to do research on the textual accuracy of Lovecraft’s stories, and this comprehensive new edition is the result. For the first time, students and scholars of Lovecraft can see at a glance all the textual variants in all relevant appearances of a story—manuscript, first publication in magazines, and first book publications. The result is an illuminating record of the textual history of the tales, along with how Lovecraft significantly revised his stories after initial publication.

Along the way, Joshi has made small but significant revisions to his earlier corrected texts. He has determined, for example, that Lovecraft slightly revised some stories when a reprint of them was scheduled in Weird Tales, and he has altered some readings in light of a better understanding of Lovecraft’s customary linguistic usages.

The result is the definitive text of Lovecraft’s fiction—an edition that supersedes all those that preceded it and should endure as the standard text of Lovecraft’s stories for many years.

Volume 1:
In this first volume, Lovecraft’s earliest stories are printed in chronological order by date of writing. Included are such early triumphs as “Dagon” and “The Outsider,” along with the many tales Lovecraft wrote under the inspiration of Lord Dunsany. The celebrated “Herbert West—Reanimator” and “The Rats in the Walls” show Lovecraft experimenting with longer narratives—a tendency that will culminate in the novelettes and novellas of his final decade of writing.

Volume 2:
In this second volume, the tales that Lovecraft wrote immediately after returning to his native Providence, R.I., from two years of “exile” in New York are presented. The landmark tale “The Call of Cthulhu” was only the tip of the iceberg of a flood of stories he wrote in 1926–27, which include the two short novels The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath and The Case of Charles Dexter Ward. “The Colour out of Space” is a pioneering tale that initiates Lovecraft’s distinctive melding of horror and science fiction, while “The Dunwich Horror” and “The Whisperer in Darkness” are rich novellas simultaneously evoking terrors from outer space and the brooding darkness of the New England backwoods.

Volume 3:
In this final volume, the tales of Lovecraft’s final years are presented. The Antarctic novella At the Mountains of Madness is perhaps Lovecraft’s most finished work, a superb fusion of weirdness and science fiction that he referred to as “cosmicism.” “The Shadow over Innsmouth” is a chilling evocation of the terrors inherent in a lonely New England backwater, while “The Thing on the Doorstep” and “The Haunter of the Dark” feature physical horrors with cosmic implications. “The Shadow out of Time” is the culmination of Lovecraft’s portrayal of the vast vistas of space and time—his signature contribution to literature.

Pulp Preservation Project
Our goal is to preserve the legacy of an entire class of American literature
and make it accessible to the mobile generation.

New Kickstarter campaign (July 18 - August 16)!

On July 18th, iPulpFiction.com launched a Kickstarter campaign of vital importance the legacy of American literature and pop culture of the first half of the 20th century.

It’s a literary legacy that was the source of countless film and television shows like Amazing Stories, Buck Rogers, Doc Savage, Perry Mason, Tarzan, and Zorro. 
Even today it influences directors such as Quentin Tarantino, Shane Black, the Coen brothers, and Steven Spielberg.

A Legacy in Danger
Pulp fiction magazines were a huge part of American pop culture in the first half of the twentieth century. If you have any doubts about the importance of pulp fiction in American literature, here are a few pulp authors you may have heard of: Isaac  Asimov, Charles Beaumont, Leigh Brackett, Ray Bradbury, Max Brand, Edgar Rice Burroughs, William S. Burroughs, Raymond Chandler, Agatha Christie, Arthur C. Clarke, Joseph Conrad, Stephen Crane, Lester Dent, Philip K. Dick, Philip José Farmer, C. S. Forester, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Erle Stanley Gardner, Zane Grey, Dashiell Hammett, Robert A. Heinlein, O. Henry, Frank Herbert, Robert E. Howard, L. Ron Hubbard, Rudyard Kipling, Louis L'Amour, Elmore Leonard, Jack London, H. P. Lovecraft, John D. MacDonald, Richard Matheson, Johnston McCulley, Ellery Queen, Upton Sinclair, Mickey Spillane, Tennessee Williams, and many others who will be forgotten if their bodies of work are not preserved.

Collectors may preserve physical copies of pulp magazines, but the volumes are slid into archival sleeves and stored in a dark place. The literature in those magazines is very rarely read. And even in their protective cases, the magazines' poor quality pulp paper is slowly disintegrating.

Time is running out to save the works of these authors.

Preserving the Legacy
The 
iPulpFiction.com Pulp Preservation Project is about bringing this wealth of forgotten American literature to the mobile generation. Our objective is to preserve the legacy of an entire class of literature. Many of these stories have never been reprinted since their original publication, making the Pulp Preservation Project a rich research tool for scholars as well as a boon to pulp fans and casual readers.

There will be two sets of classic pulp collections on the site:
(1)  The free public collection of public domain issues
(2)  The premium all-you-can-read subscription service of copyrighted content licensed from premium content holders such as Steeger Properties, LLC and Altus Press.

As he leaves his trademark - the letter "Z" - wherever he goes, he also leaves an impression on the mayor's niece (Linda Darnell, Hangover Square), who can't help but love the hero in disguise. Featuring top-notch direction by the great Rouben Mamoulian (Love Me Tonight, Blood and Sand).

Modesty Blaise (1966) [Blu-ray] - Coming August 23!

Her entire appearance changes in a finger snap. She thrashes villains without missing a spiked-heeled step. Welcome to the mad, mod world of sexy, stylish British super agent Modesty Blaise (Monica Vitti, L Avventura, L Eclisse). Hired by the government to prevent a diamond heist, Modesty recruits her wily sidekick Willie Garvin (Terence Stamp, The Limey) to help her battle crafty, colorful foes on the secluded island of a suave mastermind thief Gabriel (Dirk Bogarde, Death in Venice) and conniving partner Mrs. Fothergill (Rosella Falk, 8½). Grooving with mile-high hairdos and swinging, psychedelic wall patterns, Modesty Blaise is campy entertainment at its best. The great Joseph Losey (Eva, The Servant) directed this outrageous spy spoof featuring a stellar cast that includes Harry Andrews (Moby Dick), Clive Revill (Fathom) and Alexander Knox (The Vikings).

Lovecraft Illustrated Vol 10 – The Mound [hardcover] by H. P. Lovecraft


SYNOPSIS
The Mound is possibly the “undiscovered Lovecraft” epic—long relegated to the dust-bin of so-called “revisions” this short novel comes very close to the quality and scope of Lovecraft’s finest, rivaling even The Shadow Out of Time or At the Mountains of Madness in scope. It tells of a hidden underground world and details no less than another history of life on our planet, evoking Cthulhu, Yig and Clark Ashton Smith’s Tsathoggua, their disciples and some grisly re-animated corpse variations sure to curdle the blood of the imaginative reader!

Lovecraft Illustrated Vol 11 – The Haunter of the Dark [hardcover] by H. P. Lovecraft


SYNOPSIS
The Haunter of the Dark is presented here with the Robert Bloch story that inspired it, The Shambler from the Stars, and Bloch’s later rejoinder, The Shadow from the Steeple, which comprise a trilogy of sorts. The Haunter provides a glimpse into a dark sect and their secret laid in an old Providence church. Also included is The Thing on the Doorstep, an identity swapping tale of fiendish proportions and the short but powerful piece, Nyarlathotep, perhaps a prescient and chilling glimpse into our future?

Lovecraft Illustrated Vol 12 – The Case of CHarles Dexter Ward [hardcover] by H. P. Lovecraft

SYNOPSIS
In The Case of Charles Dexter Ward Lovecraft puts forth one of the most horrifying concepts of his career—a trio of grave-robbers are systematically rifling the tombs of the world’s most brilliant men—men who also possessed occult and arcane secrets thought to be long lost. In the hands of these monstrous ghouls, the dead are resurrected from bones and dust and extorted endlessly for their secrets! It’s the story also of a hapless young man who finds he is just a pawn in this deadly game and a doctor who discovers the plot and finds he is the only man who can fight it.

Secret Agent "X" #12 Audiobook
Curse of the Waiting Death

by Paul Chadwick writing as Brant House
Read by Milton Bagby
Now available!

Operating out of the supposedly haunted Montgomery Mansion, Secret Agent “X” ventures forth in a bewildering array of false identities to infiltrate the darkest underbellies of the Underworld—and destroy it from within. The only clue to his true identity is his haunting whistle….

 
Satan’s signals! Those were the lights that gleamed above a bandit pack. Death’s own will-o’-the-wisps, with the power of an unseen curse behind them—a curse that made the police stand off, and made Secret Agent “X” pledge himself to battle on the volcano brink of destruction!
 
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, “X” infiltrates these threats in a bewildering array of disguises.
 
The exploits of Secret Agent "X" originally appeared in the magazine of that same name under the pen name of Brant House. "X" was the creation of author Paul Chadwick.
 
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. But the unknown “X” plunged into maelstroms of raw bloodlust undreamed of by The Shadow and Doc Savage. His foes were truly depraved. Terrorists. Torturers. Kidnappers. Stranglers. Arsonists. These were the types of tabloid master criminals our nameless hero hunted.
 
Follow the Man of a Thousand Faces as he confronts the menace of Curse of the Waiting Death, ripped from the pages of Secret Agent “X” magazine, February 1935 and read with chilling intensity by Milton Bagby.

Operator #5 eBook
#44 Invasion From the Sky - March-April 1939

by Curtis Steele

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.
As a special bonus, Will Murray has written an introduction especially for this series of eBooks.
 

Jimmy Christopher, clean-cut, square-jawed and clear-eyed, was the star of the most audacious pulp magazines ever conceived — Operator #5. Savage would-be conquerors, creepy cults, weird weather-controllers and famine-creating menaces to our mid-western breadbasket... these were but a few of the fiendish horrors that Jimmy Christopher was forced to confront. Operator #5 returns in vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.

Introduction by Will Murray
 
The Secret Sentinel — A Department
 
Invasion From the Sky by Curtis Steele
From the clouds came the great enemy airships that laid waste eastern America with a new and terrible kind of inextinguishable fire. Through the dark, pall-like, low-hanging smoke moved the monstrous-headed vandals — certainly the strangest, most terrifying invaders ever to sweep over a defenseless land. While America’s proudest cities were reduced to ashes, and patriots frantically sought some means of combatting the fire-scourge, Operator 5 made a desperate stand against the aggressors. With a handful of volunteer aides, he gambled the fate of civilization on one final duel with a dictator from hell!
 
Things That Made America Great
The Army That Limped to Battle by Morton Taney
Outnumbered four to one, the little Colonial band bravely met the crack British troops in a fight to the death. For their commander was a tough American hero who knew he could win battles with men that had never hauled down their flag!

SKYSHIPS OVER INNSMOUTH by Susan Laine - Now available!

Twenty winters have passed since the Cataclysm brought down society and robbed people of their memories. Humanity, vastly reduced in numbers since the initial chaos, has started anew in Canal City with the aid of library books and steam technology. The Scout and Ranger Corps was established to search for possible survivors and to replenish dwindling resources.
 
Dev is the captain of the scout airship Smoke Sparrow, and Shay is the scholar of their newest expedition. Their destination is Innsmouth, Massachusetts, a small fishing town that is mentioned in obscure books but shows up on no maps. Might its secrets offer answers? But within the fog-covered, ruined hillside town by the bay lurk unspeakable dangers and horrors beyond imagining. The expedition team soon learns that Innsmouth is one town that should have been left forgotten.

The Devil in Iron Audio CD – Audiobook, MP3 Audio


Conan the Barbarian’s desires for the fair sex end up leading him into trouble. This time the beautiful, golden-haired, noble-born Octavia, lures him into a trap set by his most powerful enemies―a trap from which there seems to be no escape. But on the long-deserted island of Xapur, where he goes to capture this crafty beauty, it is not just mortal enemies that await him.

A demon that crawled up from the abyss many eons ago, and is of a substance as hard as iron, has been awakened and is intent on crushing Conan and his woman. Conan is up against a foe much stronger than he is, and one he cannot kill with normal weapons. Will he finally be crushed beneath the iron fists of this devil? And will Conan finally meet his match in this fierce but scantily clad woman or will she finally yield to him?

CAPTAIN PHILIP STRANGE: STRANGE SPECTRES by Donald E. Keyhoe

A mental marvel from birth, who used his talents on stage as a boy, Philip Strange is now known as “The Phantom Ace of G-2″ by the Allies during WWI. “Horrors of war” takes on a whole new meaning when WWI erupts with paranormal activity: Flaming planes piloted by charred skeletons; Battleship crews that mysteriously vanish; Medieval knights falling from the sky; The spirit of the Red Baron himself haunting the frontlines! When World War I gets weird, only America’s own “Phantom Ace of G-2” has a ghost of a chance against the supernatural slaughter. Captain Philip Strange in his strangest cases yet from the pages of Flying Aces magazine!

Take another trip through the imaginings of Donald E. Keyhoe, where the WWI war skies are filled with giant bats, invisible fire, and beautiful spies. And where America turns to its own unnatural secret weapon: Captain Philip Strange. A mental marvel from birth, he was so terrifyingly effective as the Allies’ top agent that the Germans were offering a king’s ransom for his death. This fifth volume of weird WWI adventures collects six stories featuring Germany’s wildest attempts to win the war and Captain Philip Strange’s counter measures!

Stories include:
“Scourge of the Spectre,” – Flying Aces, August 1935
“Spectre of the Red Knight,” – Flying Aces, January 1932
“The Vanishing Avenger,” – Flying Aces, February 1934
“The Ghost from G-2,” – Flying Aces, May 1934
“Strafe of the Flying Corpse,” – Flying Aces, January 1936
“The Armored Corpse,” – Flying Aces, March 1936

SQUADRON OF THE DEAD by Frederick C. Painton


The Squadron of the Dead contained all the hellions of ten armies! Men without hope; men courting death; men who loved to kill; men who laughed and fought, drank and cursed, lived hard, and died harder. Americans, British, Russians—even Germans—made up their ranks, and only one bond held them together: Death lay ahead of them. They were assigned the grim missions no other squadron dared to take—for they had all been condemned to die!

Each of the eight stories in Painton’s Squadron of the Dead is the story of a different pilot who has been condemned to death and sent to the squadron to serve out his sentence. And die they did, dropping spies, bombing impossible places, strafing infantry for harassed Allied battalions. These men flew recklessly, savagely, knowing they could live again only when death really claimed them. Then their names would shine once again in the casualty announcements and they would be posthumously awarded the Legion d’Honneur.

Frederick C. Painton, a prolific pulp author and venerated newspaper man, wrote the eight Squadron of the Dead stories contained in this anthology in 1935 for Sky Birds magazine.
Painton is best remembered for his coverage of World War II for Reader’s Digest magazine.

Stories include:
“Today We Die,” – Sky Birds, February 1935
“Ghosts of the Living,” – Sky Birds, March 1935
“The Glory Gambler,” – Sky Birds, April 1935
“Tarmac of Treason,” – Sky Birds, June 1935
“Death’s Dreadnaughts,” – Sky Birds, July 1935
“Legion of the Unlucky,” – Sky Birds, August 1935
“Duel of Dishonor,” – Sky Birds, September 1935
“Slaughter of the Dead,” – Sky Birds, December 1935

Airship 27 Productions
HITWOLF 2: THE PACK
Now available!

Airship 27 Productions is thrilled to be releasing the exciting sequel to Fred Adams Jr. crime/horror thriller “Hitwolf.”  In “Hitwolf 2 – The Pack” the hunt continues.

Oct. 1969.  It has been several months since veteran Green Beret Jim Slate escaped captivity at the hands of New Jersey mob boss, Michael Monzo.  Employing a mercenary wizard, Monzo had transformed Slate into a werewolf with the intentions of using him as his own personal “hitwolf.”  But Slate managed to foil Monzo and fled to the New Jersey wilderness known as the Barrens.

There he rendezvoused with three of his former army pals and related his harrowing experiences.  Knowing the mob will never stop hunting Slate, the team heads for the swamps of Chambliss, Georgia to hide out.  At their request, Slate turns Swede and Haines into werewolves while the third, Singer, opts to remain the solo “normal” one of the squad.  Things get worst when, through some Washington contacts, Slate learns he was betrayed by his former C.I.A. liaisons in Nam.  Now they have added their considerable resources in capturing him and the others.

Determined to use their new found abilities only to defend themselves against their enemies, Slate walks a delicate tightrope hoping the beasts he and his mates carry in their veins can be controlled.  If not, then all hell will break loose and even the blood of the innocent will flow.

“Fred Adams Jr. is one of the best New Pulp writers in the field today,” says Airship 27 Production Manager, Ron Fortier.  “His work is always fresh, original and fast paced.  The classic hallmarks of excellent pulp-fiction.  When Adams wrote HITWOLF,  we knew we had a winner on our hands.  It’s a creepy blend of gangster and horror genres mixed to taut, suspenseful perfection.  And it was ripe for sequels.  Now he delivers THE PACK and the action picks up exactly where book one ended.”

Artist Zachary Brunner provides the stunning cover with Clayton Hinkle doing the interior illustrations.  All whipped together by Award Winning Art Director Rob Davis to offer up another over-the-top thriller by the one and only Fred Adams, Jr.  Bolt the doors, put on the lights and get ready for a fun chiller of a ride.

THE LAST FAY by Honoré de Balzac
Adapted by Brian Stableford
Cover by Mike Hoffman

The Pearl Fay is suspended in mid-air in the middle of a cloud of light as white as that of a star and as soft as daylight passed through muslin woven with designs.

An alchemist, his family and his valet, Caliban, settle in an isolated village. After their deaths, their young son, Abel, who has read only fairy tales, falls in love with a local girl, Catherine, whom he mistakes for the legendary Pearl Fairy. But the scheming Lady Sommerset, infatuated with Abel, plans to use his delusions to her advantage...

The Last Fay (1823) is one of Balzac's early works in which he tried to capitalize on the then-popular fantasy genre, and yet twist it in a new direction and use it in a novel way, more advanced in both literary and philosophical terms than the sophistications already added by generations of French writers over the past century.

"Who are you?" "We are those who are not born." "Where are you going?" "We want to climb toward the light." "What do you want to be?" "We want to be those who are."

The Son of Silence (1911) tells of the quest of the legendary philosopher Pythagoras looking for a vision of utopia in the philosophical and religious doctrines of the Samothracian and Eleusianian Mysteries, and the teachings of Ancient Egypt and Zarathustra.

Ryner's construction of his fictional Pythagoras is both intriguing and ingenious, and telling his story represented a challenging literary experiment as well constituting one of the most original adventures in the field of anarchist utopianism.

Cynic Parables(1913) is a highly unusual and remarkable experiment in the development and use of the parable as an art-form and exemplifies his commitment to individualistic anarchism and pacifism.

THE FRENCH FANTASY TREASURY
Selected & edited by J-M. & R. Lofficier
Research by Brian Stableford
Cover by Michel Borderie

Translations by Ruth Berman, J.S. Chartres, C.J. Cherryh, W.W. Comfort, Lafcadio Hearn, Charles Lamb, Mrs. John Lane, Andrew Lang, Eugene Mason, Peter Antony Motteux, Léonce Rabillon, Michael Shreve, P.J. Sokolowski, Brian Stableford, and Sir Thomas Urquhart of Cromarty.

The French Fantasy Treasury serves as an introduction to French fantasy, which has a long and noble history, quite distinct from its British and American counterparts. Its three volumes chronicle the history of the genre, from its origins through modern times, and include stories, excerpts and novellas by some of the most prestigious authors in French literature. A must for fantasy lovers everywhere.

This first volume begins in the 11th century when fantasy helped the medieval people to illuminate the fearsome darkness in which they lived. We meet the brave Lancelot and the doomed Knight Roland; we go to war with the Giant King Pantagruel and visit Giphantie, at the World's Edge. In the 16th century, during the Age of Enlightenment, we travel to the Fourth Heaven known to us as Mars, and we wonder at the exploits of the Wing-Men of Mercury. Finally, in the 17th and 18th centuries, we discover how fantasy mutated into fairy tales and Arabian Nights. We rediscover the tale of Beauty and the Beast and meet the Yellow Dwarf; we share the sorrows of the Water Sprites and marvel at the tale of Prince Ahmed and the fairy Paribanou.

The Thing from--Outside
by George Allan England (Author), Gene Christie (Editor), Tom Roberts (Introduction)

Now available!

"George Allan England . . . to my mind, ranks with Edgar Rice Burroughs and Albert Payson Terhune as one of the three supreme literary artists of the house of Munsey."—H.P. Lovecraft

When science fiction was a new and yet undefined genre, pre-dating the vast-reaching, intergalactic sagas of Heinlein, Asimov and Clarke, one of the most successful authors of the era was George Allan England. Garbed in his rapid-paced storytelling, England depicts people affected by advancing technology and unexplainable events, always delving further, towards a central theme, asking the question of “What if?”

What if . . .
. . . viewing events from other periods of history became possible?
. . . the implantation of a mechanical heart could grant near immortality?
. . . Earth were visited by an alien intelligence looking for science projects?
. . . a device were created to predict crime before it happens and weed out from society those individuals with predilection for such behaviors?
. . . the intelligence of man were surgically spliced with the brutish physic of a great ape?

The answers to these and other questions may be discovered in The Thing from—Outside.

In the Shadow: and Other Uneasy Stories
by C.A. Tod Robbins (Author), Gene Christie (Introduction)

Now available!

Strip away the façade of sanity and discover why C.A. “Tod” Robbins is considered a curator of malevolence. From the author of “Spurs” and “The Terrible Three,” sources for the classic horror films Freaks and The Unholy Three, comes this new collection of bizarre masterpieces to make you shudder.

SAFE AND SANE—The watchdogs of wisdom howl as the counter-effects of boredom take a mysterious twist.

UNDYING HATRED—The Hand of Death dispenses its black gift with odd equality.

IN THE SHADOW—The death of a matriarch perverts the thoughts and actions of an entire family.

THE MAN WHO ESCAPED—An unlikely hero faces off against unavoidable Fate in this mysterious offering.

The roots of evil clutch at the reader in these and other strangling tales. The fiction of C.A. “Tod” Robbins has been compared to the works of Edgar Allan Poe, Nathaniel Hawthorne and other masters of the weird and bizarre. In this volume, readers may savor some of Robbins’ twisted tales that have remained unavailable for decades, not collected previously in book form.

Also included are two newly discovered works!

Edgar Rice Burroughs
TARZAN ON THE PRECIPICE by Michael A Sanford
Now available!

At the conclusion of the classic TARZAN OF THE APES by Edgar Rice Burroughs, Tarzan is despondent but assured he did what was honorable by enabling Jane to leave with his cousin, William Clayton (who believes he is the rightful heir to the Greystoke estate and can appropriately provide for Jane when they marry). But what then? There has never been an explanation of Tarzan’s activities after his presence in Wisconsin and before he begins his voyage back to Africa—until now!

This story is full of fantasy, imaginative fiction and adventure – It grabs your attention from the beginning and keeps it to the very end. As Tarzan travels north, you will have visions of Canada that will make you feel as if you are there, touching and feeling all that Tarzan does. Thinking time and again that Tarzan’s demise is imminent, he escapes only to encounter still more dangers, with each episode building more suspense and anticipation for the next. Tarzan’s discovery of a lost Viking civilization and the author’s description and explanation of it will bring you a clear picture of village life and the gruesome realities of their existence.

While you may think this is a novel of pure fiction, archaeologists are continuing to discover new Viking sites in North America. Just recently, satellite technology has revealed intriguing evidence of a second Norse settlement further south than ever before known. A new Canadian site was discovered after infrared images from 400 miles in space showed possible man-made impressions under layers of vegetation with telltale signs of iron working. And now you will have the opportunity, while joining Tarzan, to unearth and experience this new discovery.

Of course, TARZAN ON THE PRECIPICE has a double meaning. He is indeed chained with his life hanging in the balance on the precipice of a volcanic crater, but he is also on the precipice of the rest of his life, not knowing his future, abandoning his right of birth as an English Lord and bereft of the thing in life he cherishes most, Jane. All that is left for him now is Africa, which is at least known to him. Enjoy this tale and join Tarzan on his Canadian adventure as he prepares to return to Africa and a future even he cannot predict.

TARZAN MYTH & MYSTERY AT BRAZOS VALLEY MUSEUM OF NATURAL HISTORY
JUNE 16 - OCTOBER 29, 2016


The Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History proudly announces the premiere of its upcoming exhibition, TARZAN: Myth & Mystery,on display from June 16-Oct 29, 2016. This exhibition will open on Thursday, June 16th, at 6 pm, with a free public lecture by Edgar Rice Burroughs Bibliophile Jim Goodwin, followed by a wine & hors d’oeuvres reception & gallery viewing.

A reader and collector of Edgar Rice Burroughs for over 55 years, Goodwin will discuss the story behind Burroughs’ Tarzan tales, interesting Burroughs background and Tarzan trivia, and other fascinating anecdotes about Burroughs’ writing. A native Texan and a graduate of Stephen F. Austin University, Goodwin worked in the communications industry for 37 years. He is the co-founder of the Texas chapter of the Burroughs Bibliophiles, the “Hell’s Benders.” The name “Hell’s Benders” originated from Burroughs’ Western fiction novel, The Bandit of Hell’s Bend, featuring a character named Tex. Mr. Goodwin currently resides in Iowa Park, Texas with his wife, Rita, of 43 years and is blessed with two daughters and 4 grandchildren.

Jim Goodwin
This exclusive exhibit showcases items from an extensive collection of Tarzan and Edgar Rice Burroughs memorabilia. Early publications, beautiful original artwork, rare books, and rarely seen film posters will be shown alongside stunning taxidermy animals from central Africa. Through this colorful and exciting exhibit, visitors can explore the natural settings of the Tarzan books, the life of author Edgar Rice Burroughs, the bold world of pulp art, Tarzan’s international appeal, and other related topics.

The Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History is committed to promoting science, and cultural and natural history with the integration of art in exhibits and educational programs. This exhibit was made possible in part through Hotel Tax Revenue funded from the City of College Station through the Arts Council of Brazos Valley. The Museum partnered with Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc., private collectors, Cushing Memorial Library and Archives, and the Anthropology Department at Texas A&M University to produce this outstanding display.
