AVAILABLE NOW ~ FIGHT CARD: CAN’T MISS CONTENDER
Our latest entry Fight Card: Can’t Miss Contender is now available on Amazon. Behind our Jack Tunney pseudonym this month is Kevin Michaels. Fight Card: Can’t Miss Contender is Kevin’s second Fight Card fisticuff. This puts him in good company with David Foster and Eric Beetner, who have both written two epic punch-ups in the Fight Card series.
While Fight Card: Can’t Miss Contender is not a direct sequel to Kevin’s Fight Card: Hard Road, there is some minor character crossover.
FIGHT CARD: CAN’T MISS CONTENDER
St. Louis, Missouri, 1958
Billy Flood was the kind of boxer who had ‘can’t miss’ written all over him. He had the tools and talent to make him a middleweight champion. But a few wrong turns changed everything. Now, after a hard three year stretch inside the Missouri State Penitentiary, Billy is determined to get back in the ring and punch his way to the top. But, while other fighters his age have risen through the ranks, Billy is back where he started – fighting palookas, catchers, and tomato cans.
With his past on his heels and his future filled with obstacles, Billy finds himself backed into a corner by false friends and an unscrupulous promoter. He may get his shot at becoming a contender, but will it cost him his future? Can’t Miss Contender is another hard punching Fight Card tale…
August will see the debut of both Fight Card: Barefoot Bones from Bobby Nash and our first Fight Card Romance from Carol Malone, Fight Card Romance: Ladies Night. On the horizon are Fight Card: Union Of The Snakes from Anthony Venutolo, Fight Card: Fight River from Tommy Hancock, and Fight Card: Sherlock Holmes from Andrew Salmon.

PULPED! returns with a two fisted discussion like no other! Hosts Tommy Hancock and Derrick Ferguson return to PULPED! with more guests than You can shake a Pulp Magazine at! Featuring Lee Houston, Jr., Andrew Salmon, Michael Brown, Jeff Deischer, B. C. Bell, and Teel James Glenn, this podcast explores a question that has popped up increasingly in the last few months! New Pulp-Just What Is It’s Connection to Classic Pulp? A controversial topic amongst fans of both, Whether or not New Pulp is a descendant of Classic Pulp, a mutation, or something all its own is explored, discussed, and debated within this SPECIAL episode of PULPED!
That is if you’re a fan of the EC horror comics, Eerie, Creepy and the like. If the style of the cover illustration alone doesn’t ring any bells, then you’re in troubled waters, hard about. However, for any fan of classic horror, and who isn’t, TRILOGY OF TERROR will fit your reading needs like your favorite easy chair fits your nether regions. Everaert has clearly done his homework with this volume. That he is a fan of this stuff shines through on every page.
TRILOGY OF TERRORis a throwback in every sense of the word. Everaert is not trying to re-invent the wheel here. This is no updating or re-imagining of the classic horror comics. Rather the book stalks down this familiar territory with gusto and verve served up by an artist who knows the route to what scares us. The artwork is richly detailed, heavy blacks abound. The tales move quickly. The writing duties are shared between the writing tag-team of Kelly and his wife, Michelle and the tales move towards their grisly conclusions at a great clip. The variety of tales here also means that there’s something for everyone to scream at.
Next up in June will be Fight Card: Brooklyn Beatdown from top New Pulp writer Derrick Ferguson. July will premier the sophomore effort from Kevin Michaels, Fight Card: Can’t Miss Contender, and August will give us the very cool Fight Card: Union Of The Snakes from Anthony Venutolo.
The Fight Card editorial team has been working hard with author Carol Malone on their first Fight Card Romance entry Ladies Night, which will also be coming soon along with more titles in or new Fight Card MMA series.
The Pulp Ark convention held last month found six Fight Card authors duking it out in the same room together. Everyone at Fight Card is excited for the upcoming December entry Fight Card: Sherlock Holmes from Andrew Salmon. The publisher has also been soliciting Fight Card tales featuring Robert E. Howard, Papa Hemingway, Rod Serling, and… wait for it… luchadores (because everything is better with luchadores)…
A new issue of Fight Fictioneers Magazine is also imminent.
2013 has been a busy year for Fight Card Books and they keep on swinging.

OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE
AIRSHIP 27 presents ALL STAR PULP COMICS # 2
(Portion of Profits Goes to Boston Red Cross)
Airship 27 Productions has once again teamed with Redbud Studio comics to release the second in their on-going pulp comics anthology. The first giant issue in this series won the coveted Pulp Ark Award for Best Pulp Comic of 2010.
Volume two of the series, co-edited by creators Ron Fortier and Rob Davis, is even bigger than that stellar premier issue. Contained here are eight stories featuring both modern and classic pulp heroes; Ki-Gor the Jungle Lord, the Black Bat, Cain, Robin Hood, Lance Star, Brothers Bones, Dillon and Domino Lady.

Ferguson’s modern day adventurer, Dillon. Other creators represented are Russ Anderson, Fortier, Davis, Ian Watson, Thomas Deja, Michelle Sciuto, Sean Taylor, Aaron Meade, Todd Jones, Lee Oaks, James Gaubatz, Van Plexico, Andrew Salmon and Kelly Everaert.
The book is available from Indy Planet.com and part of the proceeds are being donated to the Boston Red Cross. “We were the last stages of assembling the book,” explains Editor Foriter, “when the Patriots’ Day bombings occurred in Boston. All of us, like the rest of the country, were in shock and felt helpless to do anything.” It was writer Van Plexico who contacted Fortier about possibly offering some of the sales proceeds to help those injured in the terror attack. “The second Van brought up, I knew it was something we had to do,” Fortier continues. He contacted Davis and all the creators and the decision was made to take all the profits earned by the book during its first six months in print and donate them to the Boston Red Cross.
“We truly hope our fans, when they learn of this idea, will want to rally around a truly good cause and help us put sales over the top,” adds co-editor Rob Davis. “We really want this to be the best selling title Redbud Studio has ever produced.”
The issue is now on sale at http://www.indyplanet.com/

About The Ruby Files:
GANGSTERS & GUNMOLLS
It was the 1930s and America was locked in the grip of the Great Depression. Gangsters controlled the major cities while outlaws roamed the rural back country. It was a time of Speak Easy gin-joints, Tommy-guns, fast cars and even faster dames. This is the world of New York based Private Investigator Rick Ruby, a world he is all too familiar with. From the back alleys of Gotham to the gold laden boulevards of Hollywood, Ruby is the shamus with a nose for trouble and an insatiable appetite for justice. So if you’ve got a taste for hot lead and knuckle sandwiches, tug your cuffs, adjust your fedora and light up a Lucky, a brand new pulp detective is coming your way.
Created by pulp masters, Bobby Nash and Sean Taylor, Rick Ruby echoes the tales of Sam Spade and Philip Marlowe while offering up his own brand of two-fisted action. Joined by fellow pulp smiths Andrew Salmon and William Patrick Maynard, these modern scribes of purple prose present a quartet of tales to delight any true lover of private eye fiction.

|Vol. 4 Back Cover|
Airship 27 Productions proudly announces the release of the fourth volume in its most successful anthology series to date; SHERLOCK HOLMES – CONSULTING DETECTIVE. “These are the books our fans keeping demanding more of,” reported Ron Fortier, Managing Editor of Airship 27. “Readers around the world just can’t seem to get enough of the Great Detective. Considering the popularity of shows such as SHERLOCK on BBC and ELEMENTARY on NBC, it’s clearly obvious that the crime solving team of Holmes and Dr. Watson are still as popular as ever.”
The time and place, Victorian England on the cusp of a new century where the marvels of science will spur the Industrial Revolution to new heights of cultural wonder. And yet amidst this societal upheaval, the dark elements of human kind continue to worm their way through the streets of London and its surrounding countryside. Murder and mayhem remain and thus the work of Sherlock Holmes continues; his powers of deductive reasoning the crucial bulwark to stem this tide of villainy.
Here are five new adventures of Holmes and Dr.Watson written in the traditional style of his creator, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Writers I.A. Watson, Aaron Smith, Bradley H. Sinor, Bill Thinnes and Andrew Salmon deliver a quintet of truly memorable cases to challenge the famous crime fighting duo. From the murder of a man who collects clockwork automatons to the theft of a valued Japanese sword, our heroes are once again called into action confronting a diverse set of mysteries guaranteed to entice the world’s greatest Consulting Detective.
Fortier relishes the debut of this new volume considering the overwhelming acclaim of the first three in the series. “Amongst those books were four Pulp Factory Award winners,” he recalls happily. “Two for Best Pulp Short Story of the Year, one for Best Pulp Cover and another for Best Interior Artwork. The literary and artistic bars for this series have been set extremely high and we would have it no other way.”
The Pulp Factory Awards denoting the best pulp story and art from the previous year are voted on by the members of the Pulp Factory Yahoo Group and presented to the winners each year at the Windy City Paper & Pulp Show.
Sporting a cover by Chad Hardin with interior illustrations and design by Rob Davis, the
fourth volume in this bestselling series also features a fascinating essay, “The Mystery of
Mr. Holmes,” by I.A. Watson. Here is grand adventure as Sherlock Homes fans around
the world have come to expect from Airship 27 Productions.
