DRAGONTHROAT

A Novel of Altiva

Airship 27 Production is excited to announce the release of a new fantasy adventure novel by award winning New Pulp author Teel James Glenn, “Dragonthroat.” This is the first tale set in the other-world of Altiva. In the grand tradition of Edgar Rice Burroughs, Glenn weaves a fast paced, colorful yarn set in a truly amazing new world.

Vietnam veteran T.K. Mitchell never thought of himself as anything other than a former grunt doing his best to get by from day to day. Life was boringly routine until the appearance of an old woman calling herself Meegana Kakdon claiming to be a Warp Wizard.

She informs T.K. that he was actually born on another world called Altiva located in a different dimension than ours. A world in which his parents ruled. But traitorous foes plotted to overthrow them and before their deaths, they sent their baby to Earth. Now the time has come for T.K. to return to Altiva and claim his birthright. 

In the blink of an eye, and very much against his will, T.K. is warped into a strange alien landscape with two suns, one red and one blue. Soon he encounters a warrior priest known as the Reverent Lord Enrique, the Shoutte of the Shoutte. Realizing the young man is a warp orphan, the cleric decides to be his guide. Day by day, T.K. begrudgingly comes to admire this strange and exotic world. A world filled with both beauty and danger to include the Royal Usurper who will stop at nothing to find and destroy him.

Artist Chris Nye provides the black and white interior illustrations and Award Winning Art Director Rob Davis the cover. Burroughs fans are going to enjoy this new series and rest assured there are many more Altiva stories on the way.

THE GREAT CHICAGO FIRE CONSPIRACY

An obsessed, twisted maniac targets the city of Chicago for destruction in retribution for the burning of Atlanta ten years earlier during the Civil War. But he has been hunted around the world by an ex-Union officer named Philip Avers who knows his true identity.

Both men converge on the bustling metropolis on a hot summer night of 1871 as the Arsonist sets his plans in motion, Avers is too late to stop him. Now, with the help of a Chicago Tribune reporter names Richard Cromie, Avers will race through a fiery hell on earth to capture the fiend and bring him to justice. But only if he and Cromie can survive the holocaust themselves.

Writers George Tackes spins an incredible tale set against the background of one of the greatest tragedies in the history of America. Artist Gary Kato provides the interior illustration with artist Chris Rawding handling the amazing cover.

“It’s not often I see a first novel this exciting and well written,” says Airship 27 Productions’ Managing Editor Ron Fortier. “Combining both elements of pure pulp action and history. Tackes delivers on all fronts.”

Benedict and Brazos #9
The Living Legend by E. Jefferson Clay

The town of Glory was anything but glorious. It was actually a town filled with fear — fear of the wild Yellow House River bunch, and an outlaw gang led by Ben Hollister, a bad man they called the Living Legend for his gun-speed.Duke Benedict and Hank Brazos had no intention of buying into Glory’s troubles.

All they wanted was a lead on Bo Rangle — the man they were hunting, who had made off with $200,000 in stolen Confederate gold. But then a good man was shot dead by the Yellow House boys. That’s when Benedict pinned on the town marshal’s badge and together he and Brazos set about restoring law and order.

With the Yellow House gang dealt with, there was still the matter of Ben Hollister, and a schemer in the shadows saw to it that he and Benedict would eventually clash.

It was a showdown Benedict would have done anything to avoid. Because he and Holliday had once been friends. Holliday was the only man faster on the draw than Benedict. The Living Legend taught him everything he knew about guns, and how to use them. Now it looked like Holliday might teach Benedict how to die!

VALHALLA BOOKS: RED SOUNDING

Terror knows no boundaries, especially when brothers must fight their own to survive.The crew of K-389 cannot face the horrific, unnatural truth. Blood-drained bodies, crewmates stricken with rabid madness, and shared dreams of a redheaded woman all provide glaring clues. The longer the command seeks an orthodox explanation, the deeper the crew descends into chaos.

Only when Mikhail Koryavin survives a vampire attack does he put the pieces together. He must recruit brave believers to save their ship. As the crew dwindles and the vampire ranks swell, questions more dangerous arise. Who accepts an invitation to join the undead? Who feasts on his brothers-in-arms without remorse? What will they do with a submarine armed for Armageddon?
