Bobby Tells A Tale From The Zero Hour

Bobby is proud to have his short story, 85 North, included in the upcoming 4th volume of the Tales From The Zero Hour series, Weird Episodes from the Zero Hour!

From http://episodesfromthezerohour.wordpress.com/:

Zero Hour! 4 is an homage to the weird fiction magazines of the pulp era. Books like Weird Tales, Strange Tales, and even, to some extent, the Tales from the Crypt comic book helped to really cement the idea of horror and fantasy fiction into the collective unconsciousness, inspiring so many of today’s masters. Of course, weird fiction is kind of a subjective term… one of the really interesting things about this book is seeing how different authors interpret the theme differently.

And that brings us to the next bit of news: our line-up. In the previous books, the Zero Hour crew has kept the line-up of authors small, but this time around, they expanded the number of creators taking a crack at the Weird Episodes from the Zero Hour!. Some of these names are familiar, and others are new to Zero Hour!, though well established in the world of modern pulp. The authors for Volume 4 are:

Anthony Schiavino, founder of Episodes from the Zero Hour!, and creator of independent comic book, Sgt. Zero. This will be Anthony’s second time writing for the Zero Hour!; his first work, “C.T. and the Savage Chimps of Cannibal Mesas,” can be found in Volume 3;

Bobby Nash, a freelance writer of novels, short stories, comic books, novellas, and graphic novels for a variety of publishers. You can find out more about Bobby’s work at his Web site, http://www.bobbynash.com/

Frank Schildner, a martial arts instructor and writer from New Jersey. Frank has written pulp novels, comics, occult adventures and tales of ancient aliens on Earth that have been published in the United States and Europe;

Stefan Dogaru, another Zero Hour! alum who’s returning for a second bite at the apple. Stefan’s work can be seen in the serialized adventure short, “Mac Samson: The Secrets of the Lost City” featured in Volume 3;

and finally, Jason Butkowski, the managing editor of Episodes from the Zero Hour! and creative mind behind Zero Hour! properties, “Knuckles, Tough Guy for Hire,” “Federal City Nocturne,” and “Rex Rockwell, Weird Game Hunter,” will be back again. Jay’s breaking the one-shot rule with another Rex installment, and is contributing a second strange tale to the mix.

In addition to the five very-talented authors listed above, the Zero Hour crew has lined up a top-notch artistic talent to bring their stories to life. Dirk Shearer is an illustrator, painter, designer and all-around artist from Pennsylvania Dutch country. Dirk will be handling the cover and interior illustrations. His stuff can be found at http://www.dirkshearer.com/

So, there you have it. Keep an eye peeled for Episodes from the Zero Hour!, Volume 4 to hit book shelves some time in the spring of 2011.
 
We'll post more news here when it is available.

ORIGINAL PRESS RELEASE

Airship 27 Productions and Cornerstone Book Publishers take to the skies with the release of their reprint edition of LANCE STAR – SKY RANGER. This collection of new stories starring the long forgotten pulp hero was the first anthology title produced by Airship 27 Prod. dated 2006. Its overwhelming success helped launch the company’s ambitious plans to bring back classic pulp characters in brand new adventures. "Without LANCE STAR – SKY RANGER, there probably would have been no Airship 27 Prod." claimed Editor Ron Fortier. "It was the book that got us going."

This anthology features four action packed tales of Lance and his loyal Sky Rangers. They include, Attack of the Birdman by Frank Dirscherl, Where the Sea Meets the Sky by Bobby Nash, Shadows Over Kunlun by Win Scott Eckert and Talons of the Red Condor by Bill Spangler with cover and interior art by comic pro, Rich Woodall of Johnny Raygun fame.

The book also contains an article on the history of the character by Norman Hamilton and a second on airplane modeling in the 1930s and 40s by Larry Marshall. Included as an added bonus feature for this new edition is an excerpt from Bobby Nash’s full length novel, Lance Star – Sky Ranger: 1941 – The Road to War, coming soon! {Note: this title has been changed}

At the height of the pulps’ popularity, flying heroes like Dusty Ayers, G8 & His Battle Aces and Bill Barnes were among the biggest sellers on the market. Airship 27 Prod. is once again turning the spotlight on another such aviation daredevil, LANCE STAR – SKY RANGER!
