COLLABORATING WITH OTHER WRITERS-- THE RUBY FILES EDITION!

Sean Taylor talks a bit about co-creating The Ruby Files together at his blog. Check out The Writer Will Take Your Questions Now #333 -- Collaborating With Other Writers here.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.
