Airship 27 Productions is thrilled to announce the release of the fourth book in the weird western series created by the late Mark Justice, “Purity” by writer Michael Housel.
Since acquiring the magic amulet, the half-breed Sam used it to re-animate a murdered lawman thus creating the Dead Sheriff. At the same time, to maintain the fabrication of a zombie avenger, he adopted the role of Cheveyo, the Dead Sheriff’s loyal Indian companion. Together they roam the west hunting outlaws and supernatural monsters accompanied by Richard O’Malley, a Boston journalist looking to chronicle their adventures in dime novels.
Whereas the amulet was once the property of a New Orleans mystic known as the Master and he wants it back. To that end the Master recruits a sadistic arsonist named Perdifious who believes himself Satan’s own Hellspawn and has gathered together an army of savage, sadistic killers. They wreak havoc and destruction wherever they go and their next destination is a Quaker settlement named Purity. Learning of this, Sam, the Dead Sheriff and O’Malley plan to confront them there and save a town full of non-violent pioneers.
“It does my heart good to see this book released,” reports Airship 27 Production Managing Editor Ron Fortier. “It continues our promise to Korma Kay Justice that we would do everything in our power to keep her husband’s legacy alive.” Kentucky based writer and radio host, Mark Justice, passed away suddenly several years ago after completing the first Dead Sheriff novel, “Zombie Damnation.” Airship 27 published the book posthumously. Then Fortier completed the second, unfinished manuscript for book two, “Cannibals and Bloodsuckers.” Last year the company published the third installment, “Holster Full of Death” by writer Fred Adams Jr.
“The characters are great and the potential for future books endless,” Fortier declares. Airship 27 Production’s Art Director Rob Davis provided the interior illustrations for “Purity” and the cover was rendered by Michael Youngblood, another Airship 27 creator.
