“All Aboard!”

Train guard James Potter stood at the bottom step where he placed a small wooden box to offer an extra step to those who needed it. “Final boarding call!” he announced as passengers climbed on board. He kept one eye on the baggage car as his crew worked feverishly to load the overweight crates they had been hired on to ferry on the long ride to London. It had taken four men to get the last of the crates, this one roughly 3 meters tall, up the ramp and into the car. It had only slipped once. Poor Frederick was going to be wearing a cast on his crushed foot for weeks.

“Final boarding call!”

It was cold on the platform and Guard Potter was ready to depart with five minutes to spare before the final whistle blew its shrill cry. Winter had gotten off to a frigid start and the icy rain that had been falling for days was soon to be replaced by snow and actual ice. He was not a fan of winter, but despite his wish that it could be otherwise, he still had a job to do.

He tipped his hat when the polished older gentleman with a cane and his much younger companion arrived fashionably late.

“Just in time, sir,” he told the man while trying hard not to stare at the beautiful woman hanging on his arm. Her low cut top and slit dress made the task difficult. This woman was no stranger to turning heads and the cold did not seem to bother her as much as it did him because, unlike her companion, she was not dressed for the elements.

“Nonsense,” the older man said in a deep baritone. “This railway is quite well-known for their adherence to schedules. We still have a good…” he fished a pocket watch from his pocket and popped open the cover. “…four solid minutes,” he said matter of fact before snapping the cover closed and returning it to his breast pocket. He withdrew an envelope carrying two tickets from inside his jacket.

“Of course, sir,” the guard said. “You must be Mr. Holmes. I’ve read stories of your exploits in The Strand.”

“At your service, although you should never believe everything you read,” Sherlock Holmes said, handing over both of their tickets with a slight nod. “Allow me to present Miss Ellen Patrick from the United States of America.”

“A pleasure, sir,” Miss Patrick said with a voice as silk as honey.

To be continued in The Crate Train Robbery in the Sherlock Holmes/Domino Lady trade on sale April 2016.

DOMINO LADY “MONEY SHOT” NOMINATED FOR A PULP ARK AWARD!


I am excited to announce that my Domino Lady “Money Shot” novel has been nominated for a Pulp Ark Award for Best Novella (the novel/novella count is based on word count so even though the publisher calls it a novel, the awards do not).

To say I’m thrilled and honored is an understatement. Thanks to those who nominated my book. It is appreciated. Congratulations to all the nominees.

If you’d like to cast your votes for the Pulp Ark Awards, the ballot and instructions are below.

Bobby

PULP ARK AWARD NOMINEES ANNOUNCED!

PRESS RELEASE:

The Pulp Ark New Pulp Awards, as announced earlier this year, are continuing in 2016 and will be awarded at the River City Comic Expo June 11-12, 2016 in Little Rock, AR.

With nominations now closed for the 2016 Pulp Ark New Pulp Awards, voting is open from February 5th, 2016 to 5:00 PM CST February 21, 2016.

“It’s time,” says Tommy Hancock, Coordinator of Pulp Ark and the Awards, “to pick the best of the best from 2015.  And we have always prided ourselves on being the Pulp Award that has always been open to public voting and we continue that practice this year. Anyone of age can vote, but we do ask, as always, that this be treated fairly and justly. Of course, we are aware of ways votes could be made that are either not valid or simply a result of someone begging everyone in their family and graduating class to vote for them.  What we ask is that those who vote and encourage others to vote do so with the right intent and consideration for all involved.”

Voting is open to all who wish to vote that are 18 years or older.  All voters are subject to being asked to provide verification of age or identity if necessary throughout the voting process and the determining of winners.  Refusal to do so if requested will result in the voter’s ballot being voided.

If you nominated in a particular category and do not see your nomination on the final ballot, it is because either the work/nominee was not appropriate for this year’s ballot due to not having been published or first published in 2015 OR it did not meet qualifications for another reason, such as a nominated work being a comic book or audiobook only, not a work of prose.

Voting opens on February 5 and will be open until 5 PM CST on February 21, 2016. All who wish to vote are asked to cut and paste  the ballot from the Pulp Ark Award Facebook page or any other source where the ballot is posted.  Then, the voter is requested to vote only ONCE for each category and to EITHER only list the nominee they are voting for under each category or to highlight the nominee (s) they are voting for in RED.  Once they have completed their ballot, voters are asked to email the ballot to PulpArkNewPulpAwards2016@yahoo.com. Each ballot must contain a link to a Facebook page, a Twitter account, an email profile, or some other verifiable source by which the identity of the voter can be affirmed.

In the past, the Pulp Ark Awards were physical plaques presented to each winner. The final form of the 2016 Awards has not be determined at this point, but a physical award of some sort will be given to each winner.

The Ballot for the 2016 Pulp Ark New Pulp Awards is as follows-

All of these shows have had ups and downs and each is a very different sort of experience.

Join Phantom, Bobby, and Ryan as they discuss the joys of this glut of comic booky goodness!

BOBBY JOINS VIEWS FROM THE LONGBOX FOR SUPERHERO ANNIVERSARIES 2015!

Flashback to last year's Dragon Con! Join host Michael Bailey, Joe Crowe, Bobby Nash and Philip Schweier as we talk about the birthdays of some very special heroes on the latest Views From The Longbox podcast.

Give it a listen here.


This time out I am presenting the audio from the panel I moderated at DragonCon back in September of 2015.  For the second year in a row Joe Crowe and Gary Mitchel (the directors for the American Sci-Fi Classics track at DragonCon) invited me to not only be on some panels but moderate one that was all about the 75th anniversaries of a handful of DC characters.  Joining me on this panel were Joe Crowe (he of the RevCast and the RevolutionsSF website), Bobby Nash (award winning author) and Philip Schweier (of ComicBookBin.com).  For a little over an hour we talked about the heroes hitting the big 7-5 in 2015 including Robin The Boy Wonder, Captain Marvel, the Jay Garrick Flash, the Alan Scott Green Lantern, the Spectre, the Al Pratt Atom, the Joker and...someone else.  After going through the presentation I put together the audience got involved and some great conversations about the characters broke out.

This panel was a lot of fun to moderate an I had a ball putting together the PowerPoint presentation which you can view in PDF form by clicking on this link.  

I'd like to take a moment to thank Joe Crowe and Gary Mitchel for having me be a part of the American Sci-Fi Classics family.  They have made DragonCon fun for me again and I appreciate them letting me play in their sandbox.  

Be sure to check out the links associated with the people on this panel too.  Because they're awesome.

2013 PULP FACTORY AWARD NOMINEE FOR BEST PULP INTERIOR ILLUSTRATIONS BY ROB MORAN.


Airship 27 Productions dons its tough-guy mantle, as it premiers its newest pulp star in THE RUBY FILES.

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 & 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 & William Patrick Maynard, these modern scribes of purple prose present a quartet of tales to delight any true lover of private eye fiction. This instant classic features a gorgeous Mark Wheatley cover and eight evocative black and white illustrations by Rob Moran.

This is a book that harkens back to the classic black and white Warner Brothers gangster movies that featured James Cagney, Humphrey Bogart and Edward G. Robinson to name a few. The atmosphere is gritty with a no-nonsense hero pulp fans are going to applaud from the first story to the last. And when that last tale comes to a close, you can bet we haven’t seen the last of Rick Ruby, Private Eye.

Bobby’s story is called “The Case of the Wayward Brother

On the surface, the case seemed simple enough. All Rick Ruby had to do was track down the runaway brother of the sexy socialite from California then collect his fee. Of course, in Rick Ruby’s world, even the simplest case is never that simple.

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. 

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. 

Lance Star: Sky Ranger
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.”
