Will Murray's Pulp Classics
The Domino Lady AudioBook
by Lars Anderson

Back in 1936, an obscure New Orleans pulp writer named Lars Anderson created a remarkable character for an even more obscure girlie magazine, Saucy Romantic Adventures. She is the slinky sleuth celebrated today as one of the rare pioneering pulp heroines of the Great Depression, the Domino Lady!
 
Clad in a shimmering evening gown, a black domino mask offsetting her golden blonde hair, daring socialite Ellen Patrick takes the trail to crime, motivated by the murder of
her father, District Attorney Owen Patrick. Since the Hollywood beauty suspects that a powerful state political machine was responsible for her father’s assassination, she targets high-society crime exclusively, hoping to bag a big shot. In the tradition of pulp heroes of that era, she left behind her calling card, which read Compliments of the Domino Lady. That famous masked protector of Old California, Zorro, would have recognized her M. O. instantly.
 
Ellen packed an automatic, a hypodermic loaded with knockout serum, and her feminine wiles as she plunges into the social webs of extortion and murder, often teaming up with up-and-coming private investigator Roge McKane, more frequently tangling with suave big-game hunter turned blackmailer, Rob Wyatt, who is her recurring Nemesis. Or is it the other way around?
 
The self-described “young avenger” appeared in every issue of Saucy Romantic Adventures until it folded with the October, 1936 issue, popping up in Hollywood, San Francisco, and on the high seas, in her pursuit of swift justice. A month later, glorified by a stunning Norman Saunders cover, she made her final bow in “The Domino Lady Double,” for the November, 1936 Mystery Adventure Magazine, where she matches wits with an equally gorgeous impostor.
 
The Domino Lady faded from the pulp scene, but was not forgotten. Fondly remembered by fans of the genre, she has been revived in new stories for a new century. And how she appears in her first audiobook.
 
Nick Santa Maria strains his masculine vocal chords to bring the saucy superheroine to life.

Look for this one in the next few weeks.
Domino Lady "Money Shot" a novel by Bobby Nash is coming any day now. Learn more about pre-ordering this novel here.


BOLDLY GOING...

Not from their first episode, but these are my favorite TNG-era Starfleet uniforms.
In news that makes me feel old...

27 years ago today on September 28, 1987, Star Trek: The Next Generation premiered! The series continues to live long and prosper on DVD and syndication. I have been fortunate enough to meet most of this cast over the years at conventions. There is a genuine affection you can feel between this group. They're always fun to watch on stage.

Happy Anniversary!

STARSHIP FARRAGUT “CONSPIRACY OF INNOCENCE” BEAMS DOWN!

Bobby Nash shows off his first DVD copy of "Conspiracy of Innocence"
I love getting stuff like
this in the mail. So cool.
These are the voyages of the Starship Farragut. Its ongoing mission...

I received my copies of the Starship Farragut "Conspiracy of Innocence" episode I wrote on DVD. Coming soon to a convention near you. Cool, huh?

I'll have copies of the DVDs on hand at conventions for anyone who wants one. If you like what you see, you can also donate a few bucks toward the filming of their next episode and building new sets. All of the filming and construction at Farragut Studios is a labor of love by all involved. They do it because they love Star Trek and it shows.

Starship Farragut
Conspiracy of Innocence

Trapped in a world below the surface of a dying planet, the inhabitants share a secret which could change the galaxy forever. While Captain Carter and the crew grieve, a threat emerges which could mean the end of the Farragut.

The best seat in the house.
Also, join the cast, crew, fans, and extended family of Starship Farragut for Farragut Fest on December 6th and 7th at Farragut Studios in Kingsland, Georgia. It will be a fun time. If you’re a Star Trek fan, visiting these sets is a must.

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.

INTRODUCING...

I've checked another item off the literary bucket list. I've never written an introduction to another author's novel. Until today.

It's definitely an interesting experience talking about another author's work and setting the stage in a way that's different than writing a review of a book I've read or one of my own work. I hope the author and publisher like it. Can't say much more than that right now. Once the publisher announces the novel, I'll post it here.

DRAGON CON WRAP UP!

Better late than never, huh?

I am way behind on getting stuff posted. My apologies for that. As always, Dragon Con was amazing. This is easily my favorite con of the year for many reasons. I have been a part of Dragon Con longer than any other con. This was my 25th Dragon Con. In addition to being a fun con to work, it’s almost like a family reunion of sorts. There are some fantastic people that I only see once a year in Atlanta and that happens at this con.

This year’s Dragon Con took place, as usual, over Labor Day weekend in Atlanta, GA. I arrived on Thursday, August 28th and left on Monday, September 1st. Apologies in advance for the photo quality. All I had was my phone and it does not take the best photos.

Here’s how my panel schedule broke down this year.
-------------------
Title: Ghostbusters: 30th Anniversary of Mass Hysteria
Description: This panel will remind us of when you tried to drill a hole in your head.
Time: Thu 10:00 pm Location: M303-M304 - Marriott (Length: 1 Hour)
(Tentative Panelists: Dr. Scott Viguié, Debbie Viguié, Bobby Nash)

I wasn’t expecting much out of a Thursday night panel, but I think we were all surprised by how many people showed up to listen to the panelists talk Ghostbusters. The room was full, standing room only and they were a lively bunch. Definitely a great way to kick off the con.
The Ghostbuster crowd as they started to file in. Soon: standing room only.
-------------------
Title: The Many Faces of Pulp
Description: Pulp Fiction has many faces. From gritty crime fiction to even the deepest depths of space or the far-flung future. This discussion covers it all.
Time: Fri 04:00 pm Location: Augusta 3 - Westin (Length: 1 Hour)
Moderator / MC for panel
(Tentative Panelists: Van Allen Plexico, James R. Tuck, John G. Hartness, Cherie Priest, party crasher: Andrea Judy. Bobby Nash: moderator)

This was a fun one. We talked about our pulpy interests and fielded questions from the audience. This is a great group of panelists. We were never at a loss for words and there were a lot of laughs.
Pulpsters: James R. Tuck Jr., Bobby Nash, Van Allen Plexico
-------------------
Title: Podcasting Authors Roundtable
Description: Join a roundtable discussion of working writers who utilize podcasting to distribute and promote their work.
Time: Sat 10:00 am Location: 203 - Hilton (Length: 1 Hour)
(Tentative Panelists: Bobby Nash, Dr. Pamela L. Gay, Jay Smith, Michael Stackpole, Scott Sigler)

Podcasting Authors. I was talking about doing the audio for Ghost Gal here.
I wasn’t sure what to expect from this panel. I learned a lot from the panelists about the way they use podcasting to get their books and stories out there. The panel was live streamed on-line and you can watch it yourself by clicking here. Or watch it below.


-------------------
Title: Airwolf: Nothing Is More Airwolf Than Airwolf
Description: On its 30th anniversary, explore the awesomeness of the high-tech 80s TV helicopter.
Time: Sat 02:30 pm Location: M303-M304 - Marriott (Length: 1 Hour)
(Tentative Panelists: Bobby Nash, J.C. De La Torre, Archangel)

This was another panel that surprised me with the size and excitement of the crowd. We even had 3 people cosplaying Airwolf characters, which was pretty darn cool. I recorded the podcast at the request of some international Airwolf fans on Facebook. You can listen to it here.

The new Airwolf flight crew.
-------------------
Title: Reading: Bobby Nash
Time: Sat 04:00 pm Location: Marietta - Hyatt (Length: 1 Hour)

As much as I like to talk, I am not a fan of reading my work aloud to groups. In this case, I managed to avoid reading because there were only 2 who showed up and we had a nice discussion about writing and books instead, which I really enjoyed.

I love this placard so much I asked if I could take it home with me.
-------------------
Title: Pulp Fiction
Description: Pulp has made an extraordinary comeback in recent years. We discuss what and why.
Time: Sat 05:30 pm Location: Embassy A-B - Hyatt (Length: 1 Hour)
(Tentative Panelists: Bobby Nash, Van Allen Plexico, Milton J Davis)

Two pulp panels this year. Both Van and Milton are friends of mine so we had a great time riffing off one another as we talked about various topics, including our books, the tropes of pulp stories, research, and how technology impacts the way we tell stories. We had a great audience and they had some really good questions. I believe Van taped this panel for an upcoming episode of his White Rocket Podcast. I’ll let you know when it becomes available. No photo from this panel, unfortunately.


-------------------
Title: Autograph Sessions
Time: Sun 01:00 pm Location: International Hall South - Marriott (Length: 1 Hour)

Set up my table and sold books for an hour. Met some interesting people. It was a fun time. Wish I could have been set up longer than an hour, but it was a great hour.
Wanna buy some books?
-------------------
Title: Building a Podcast Network from Scratch
Description: Ever though of building a podcasting network? We'll discuss the pros & cons of building a network, talk growing pains, and share success stories.
Time: Sun 02:30 pm Location: 203 - Hilton (Length: 1 Hour)
(Tentative Panelists: Bobby Nash, Michael Gordon, Mike Faber)

Building a podcast network panel.
I joined my ESO Network co-hosts to talk about podcasting. It was a fun panel and the only panel I got to share with Mike Faber and Mike Gordon over the weekend. As with all of the podcasting track panels, this one was live streamed on-line and you can watch it if you click here. Or you can watch it below.


-------------------

Title: "V-Wars: Vampires Everywhere!"
Description: Behind the scenes of Jonathan Maberry's V-Wars universe.
Time: Sun 07:00 pm Location: Peachtree 1-2 - Westin (Length: 1 Hour)
(Tentative Panelists: Jonathan Maberry, James A. Moore, and James R. Tuck)

I was recently added to IDW’s V-Wars anthology so V-Wars head honcho Jonathan Maberry invited me to join the panel. Scott Sigler and Keith R A DeCandido were also on the panel. We talked all things V-Wars from the creation of the shared world to the anthology series all of the panelists are part of to the comic book series, upcoming TV series, and board game. This was another fun panel with a great group of panelists and great audience participation.

-------------------
Title: Six Million Dollar Man: 40 Years in Slow Motion
Description: Honoring the Bigfoot-size superstars of 1970s TV.
Time: Mon 08:30 am Location: M303-M304 - Marriott (Length: 1 Hour)
(Tentative Panelists: Alan Gratz, Bobby Nash, Dr. Scott Viguié)

My final panel of the weekend was also my earliest morning of the con. I was a bit surprised that so many others were up so early for an 8:30 a.m. panel, but we had a great discussion of all things Bionic, including a touching story from Dr. Scott Viguié.
Talking Six Million Dollar Man early on a Monday morning.
Also, during the convention was the Annual ESO Network Meet ‘n Greet. This informal event was held next to the pool at the Sheraton in concert with Pin-Ups By The Pool. We had a nice turn out and some cool conversations as we sweltered in the Georgia summer heat.

Meet the ESO Network
At the ESO Meet 'n Greet. Or, as we liked to call it, The ESO Sauna.
On Sunday night at 10 pm I met up with the ESO crew for another annual tradition as we recorded an episode of The Earth Station One Podcast live at the con. You can hear it here.

ESO LIVE at Dragon Con!
I met several new people at the con as well as talked with friends and colleagues (far too numerous to try and mention them all, but you know who you are), did a little shopping, checked out some fantastic costumes, and just generally geeked out with about 80,000 or more of my closest friends. All in all, Dragon Con 2014 was another great year.

I’m ready for Dragon Con 2015.
