Nash News: Cons Are Back, Baby!

July is almost over. How did that happen so fast?It’s been a busy time here at Nash Central. Projects are moving along nicely and I’ve even appeared at a couple of local conventions. Boy, was I out of practice on that front. I’m glad to get back out there and see friends and fans even through masks. It’s been too long. Here’s a photo from JordanCon. FYI: I took my mask off long enough to take the photo.Work continues apace on my many projects, which is always nice. I’ll update you on things as we go, but first, let me share some exciting new releases.

Snow Shorts Vol. 1 Table of Contents:
Snow Flies featuring Abraham Snow by Bobby Nash.
Abraham Snow goes undercover and takes to the air when a pilot friend of his goes missing. The trail leads him to a casino, smugglers, and dangerous skies. Can Snow disrupt the smuggling operation and save his friend and their unexpected passengers before they’re shot down? Snow Flies was a 2020 Pulp Factory Award Nominee for Best Pulp Short Story.

Thieves’ Alley featuring Big John Salmon by Gary Phillips.
Big John Salmon had built a new life for himself after being incarcerated. But now an old friend, an unrepentant thief was dying in a prison hospital in the high desert. Pulled back in by personal honor as the man’s family is under threat, Big John is recruited to carry off one last heist — against a quirky billionaire’s fortified penthouse atop the Phan-Tan Casino under heavy guard. Yet the prize wasn’t money. Squeezed by forces known and unknown, Salmon once again walks down thieves’ alley as he puts his plan in motion. Calling on an edge forged in the fires of adversity might tip the odds in his favor to make it out alive…or wind up on the slab.

A Stranger Calls featuring Laura Snow by Nicole Givens Kurtz.
Laura Snow (mother of Abraham, Douglas, and Samantha) is enjoying her life. A free spirit, Laura follows her bliss. The journey leads her to Taos, New Mexico where she has created a life for herself away from the dangers her family often finds themselves facing. Or so she thought. Laura is concerned when she starts receiving threatening phone calls and texts. A mysterious someone is stalking her and the threats are escalating. When official channels fail, Laura falls back on old skills she learned years ago from her father-in-law, Archer Snow to protect herself against a dangerous foe who wants her dead.

  1. Moonstone TRIPLE THREAT Nov. 21

Written by: James Reasoner, Nancy Holder

Art: Jason Schaufele

Cover: Michael Stribling

6” x 9”, squarebound, prose, 86pgs, $7.99

UPC: 685239899986

NY Times best-selling author James Reasoner brings us a new LONE RANGER tale: a beautiful archaeologist races a gang of killers to find a legendary relic that leads to a lost treasure.

Double Stoker Award winner Nancy Holder & Alan Philipson intro Johnny FADE: a corrupt, dead Hollywood homicide detective stuck in the noir purgatory of Dead Town, crossing back over to Tinsel Town to solve cases for the living, and to find out how he can stay out of Hell.

Plus, the inspiration for Superman, Gladiator, appears in his first original tale (with Golden Amazon) by Phantom author Mike Bullock!

  1. XAL-KOR: The Return

Written by: Gary Phillips

Art: Jason Schaufele, James Burns

Cover: Jason Schaufele

7” x 10”, b/w, 40pgs, prose and comics, $4.50

UPC: 685239899979

XAL-KOR was created by Richard “Grass” Green, a pioneer in those days of fandom not only for giving us the Human Cat, but being back then one of, if not the only initially, African American producing work for the fanzines.  With his dynamic style clearly inspired by Jack “King” Kirby, Grass Green’s Xal-Kor was right out of a ‘70s Marvel Comics kind of superhero.

          This one-shot is about delivering adventure, while reminiscent of fandom’s Golden Age, but with a modernistic undercurrent.


Airship 27 Productions is thrilled to announce the release of the third in Barbara Doran’s amazing fantasy adventure tales of the wandering Chinese prince, Lang Yixao.

A Daoist Priest in exile, Lang Yixao, has been traveling through California with his close friend, Heibai Wuchang doing his best to stay out of trouble and continue his spiritual training. But trouble won’t leave him alone. Working as a mail carrier, Yixao encounters a group of warriors from his mother’s homeland of Khaitan. The Five Elemental Masters are attempting to escape an evil sorcerer and his agents. Failing to subdue his curiosity, Yixao joins Jigme, the Elemental Master of Earth in his battle against the Five Demonic Elemenatalist. This ultimately leads them back to China for a climatic battle with their real enemy. In the end it isn’t quite the homecoming the Wanderer had imagined.

“This series is truly special,” states Airship 27 Productions’ Managing Editor Ron Fortier. “Combining her knowledge of both western and eastern history along with Chinese mythology, writer Barbara Doran has woven an incredible saga filled with some of the most colorful characters to ever grace the pages of a pulp fiction. This is action and adventure interwoven with exotic locales and truly amazing magical creatures. It’s a one of a kind series our readers will love.”

Artist Gary Kato provides all 9 black and white interior illustrations and Art Director Rob Davis the beautiful color cover.

Titan Books To Publish New Conan Prose Stories

Reposted from ICv2


Novel and Short Stories Will Not Stray from the Canon. Posted by Brigid Alverson on June 11, 2021 @ 1:04 pm CT

Titan Books and Conan Properties have signed a deal for a new program of prose fiction about Conan, the iconic sword-and-sorcery character created by Robert E. Howard, to be published under the Perilous Worlds imprint. The first fruits of the deal will be a novel and two short stories that will be published in 2022 to coincide with the 90th anniversary of Howard’s first Conan story in December 1932. The first novel is scheduled to be published in trade paperback and digital editions in September 2022. The short stories will be digital only, and the first one is planned for May 2022. The new works will stay within the established Conan canon.

Perilous Worlds is an imprint of Cabinet Entertainment, which is the official licensor of the Conan rights from Conan Properties International (see “Conan Ownership Changes Hands”). Titan and Perilous Worlds also have plans to publish novels and short stories about Howard’s other creations, including Kull the Conqueror, Solomon Kane, and Dark Agnes. 

Howard’s Conan character has spawned not only novels but comics, games (see “Cabinet Entertainment Launching Game Line”), figures (see “Conan Comes to ‘Minicrate’”), and other merch, and a Netflix series is being developed. More than 50 Conan novels by writers other than Howard have been published in the past by a variety of publishers. On Twitter, Cabinet President and CEO Fredrik Malmberg noted that Titan editor Steve Saffel, who edited the Robert E. Howard library at Del Rey, will once again be collaborating on Conan properties; Malmberg called him “One of the most experienced Editors around.”

Airship 27 presents C.O. Jones



C.O. JONES – Hometown U.S.A.

Airship 27 Production is thrilled to announce the release of the fourth installment of writer Fred Adams Jr.’s action packed C.O. Jones series.

When things in L.A. get a little too hot for C.O. Jones, a change of scenery is in order and he’s only to happy to return to Brownsville, PA at the summons of his old boss, Mobster Skitch Mottola.   Several unknown men have attacked local business to include a half-hearted attempt on the bank. All the incidents seem random and unconnected, but Skitch believes another gang is attempting to surreptitiously take over his territory by causing criminal mischief. He wants Jones to find out who they are, who they work for and how to stop them.

It seems simple enough until Jones recognizes the attacks perpetrated by these mystery men are all familiar military tactics and he comes to the startling conclusion that the group they are dealing with is made up of war veterans. Now things are really going to get complicated.

Airship 27 Production’s Art Director Rob Davis provides the cover and interior illustrations.

New Pulp Artist Howard Simpson Wins More Awards!

Arcadia Artist Wins Award for Illustration Work
ARCADIA, CA, May 10, 2021

Artist Howard Simpson has received the 2020 Pulp Factory Award for BEST PULP INTERIOR ILLUSTRATIONS  for his art on  the paperback novel “Bulldog Drummond: On Poisoned Ground.”

Published by Airship 27 Productions, the art is for the new pulp genre of publishing with full-page illustrations like those of the original pulps from the 30s and 40s. Cultural critic Michael A. Gonzales says, “New Pulp represents a way for 21st-century creators to update concepts of heroes, crime fiction and science fiction for a new audience. New Pulp doesn’t reject the “old,” but instead builds on those foundations while offering a fresh perspective. For me, New Pulp is a world unafraid of diversity, but still seeks truth, justice, and knocking the hell out of bad people.”

Simpson has been creating illustrations professionally since his college days.  His clients include Time Warner, Disney, Random House, Simon & Schuster, among others. He teaches digital art at Golden West College and previously taught comic book art at The Kubert School. He continues to provide illustrations for clients and self-publish his books. You may see his work at
Simpson recently completed drawings for a Bass Reeves anthology.
