Book Overview

Zarim and the crew of the airship Excalibur were simple pirates, performing any job so long as the price was right. Until the day they were tasked with retrieving the mysterious Soulstones—legendary artifacts rumored to be the source of all life on the planet, and holding the promise of granting vast power to the person who gathers all five.

Their quest will take them to the far reaches of the planet, from pirate havens to the realm of the dead, from the land of faeries to a tribal society of cat-people. All while trying to stay one step ahead of the forces of the empire, led by an extremely powerful and twisted sorcerer who wants the stones for his own malicious purposes!

From Percival Constantine, Pulp Ark Award-nominated author of The Myth Hunter, comes an epic sci-fi fantasy set in a world of magic and adventure!

Dillon appears in comics!

AllStarPulp2CVRAirship 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.
The cover is by Will Meugniot and features Ki-Gor’s lovely mate, Helene, battling back to back with Derrick 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 IndyPlanet.
