Creating Rick Ruby and his world with Sean was a lot of fun. We wrote a pretty lengthy essay about it that appears in The Ruby Files Vol. 1. I remember we were sitting in a crowded restaurant talking about all things Rick Ruby while the people at nearby tables were pretending not to eavesdrop. It was a fun evening.
Collaborating with other writers can be fun. Michael Gordon and I collaborated on the Strong Will graphic novel that will be available next year and Stuart Jaffe and I are in the early stages of creating a comic book project together now. More on that when I can share it.

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 & 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.
Published by Airsip 27 Productions.
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.
