AIRSHIP 27 PRODUCTIONS
Debuts New Mystery Crime Series!
Airship 27 Productions is damn happy to announce the debut
of their first ever mystery crime series, Pulp Confidential Vol. One.
“This is something our fans have been clamoring for,” admits
Airship 27 Productions’ Managing Editor, Ron Fortier. “Year after year, they come to our tables at
pulp shows and ask if we have any mystery titles. We would point them to our best selling Sherlock
Holmes – Consulting Detective books to which they would merely shrug. They made it quite clear what they wanted was
old fashion mystery anthologies in the vein of the Black Mask Mystery or Clue.
Although Airship 27 did release a pulp private eye series in
Ruby Files a few years ago, there was no active anthology series. Now that missing piece in their publishing
goals has been finally addressed with Pulp Confidential Vol. One.
The series kicks off with two original mysteries both worlds
and times apart. Tim Bruckner’s novella,
Pretty, opens things up with a novella set in 1930s Hollywoodland where
a sadistic serial killer is on the loose. This is followed by British writer
Derek Lantin’s first ever published work, The Missing Beauty. It’s a modern day thriller about a London accountant who flies to Bangkok on assignment and then finds himself
caught in a kidnapping and murder.
“Both of these are truly well-crafted mysteries,” Fortier
continues. “That they were so different
from one was fun of assembling the volume.
It’s our hopes future volumes in the series will contain all kinds of
crime mysteries as diverse as the genre truly is.” Pulp Confidential Vol. One. features
both cover and interior illustrations by the popular Rob Moran, whose love of
old American black and white crime movies is well documented in his own art
books. Warren Montgomery provided colors
which harkened back the drug store crime magazine racks with Art Director Rob
Davis putting everything together.
“We’re hoping our fans will applaud the debut of this
series,” Fortier concludes. “And that it
will attract lots of great mystery submissions.
I mean, really, who doesn’t doesn’t love a good mystery?”
