R.I.P. Al Rio

Art: Al Rio
It has been reported by Brazilian journalists that comic book artist Al Rio has recently died.

Known especially for his Gen 13 and DV8 work for Wildstorm, and more recently for his Zenescope covers, especially Grimm Fairy Tales. Al Rio had worked across the comics industry, both in Brazil and in the USA, including the likes of Grifter & The Mask, Alan Moore’s Voodoo, Avengylene for Avatar, World War Hulk, Amazing Spider-Man and New Mutants.

The respected Brazilian journalist Sidney Gusman, after talking to those close to the family reports that is was apparently suicide, but that no note had been left.

Our thoughts are with his family.

See original link: http://www.bleedingcool.com/2012/01/31/al-rio-passes/
I did not know Al Rio personally, but I did have the honor of working with him on the first issue of Jungle Fantasy for Avatar Press several years ago. Al drew with such a beautiful line and his work was always visually exciting. And boy could he draw the most beautiful ladies.
My condolences to his family and to my friend, Terry Maltos, who is Al's friend and art dealer. Both the man and his talent will be missed.

After a day of not accomplishing much thanks to a migraine coupled with throwing my back out I had a burst of creative inspiration that led to a late night writing session. It was great. I added a little over a thousand words to a story for the next Lance Star: Sky Ranger anthology for Airship 27. This one features a mysterious island, giant winged prehistoric creatures, an imminent volcanic eruption, and oh yeah, Nazis.

Here's a taste of the story.

    “I have no idea,” Lance said, scratching his head. “I do know one thing though. Whatever they’re up to, it can’t be good.”

    “Oh, I don’t know about that, Mr. Star,” a booming voice called out from the shadows.
    Each of them reaching for their side arms, Lance and Cy spun toward the sound. They weren’t fast enough. Instead, the pilots found themselves staring down the barrels of several automatic weapons pointed directly at them.
    A smiling Nazi officer strode from the shadows. He was dressed in full dress uniform, his medals shined to perfection. He walked with his hands positioned behind his back and carried himself with a regal bearing, not an uncommon characteristic of most of the German officers Lance Star had met in his life.
    “I am Major Wilhelm Adler, gentlemen,” he said. “And you are now my prisoners.”

Art: James Burns
Exciting stuff.

More tomorrow.

Chugging Along...

I had a pretty good day of creative pursuits. Worked on some cover design, ads, formatting, and some writing too. Back to a full day of writing tomorrow. Much work to accomplish.

A little TV then calling it a night.

I hope you had a great weekend.

Bobby Nash's Zazzle Store - Now Open For Business

Bobby's Zazzle Store is now open.

Visit www.zazzle.com/bobbynash for some cool items.

Adding new items soon.


I finished up the last couple thousand words and edits on my story for Pulp Obscura’s The New Adventures of Eagle and sent it off to the editor at Pro Se Press. YEAH!

After a short break to watch episode two of Sherlock season 2 I got back to work on a comic script. Three deadlines coming up in the next two weeks so there’s a lot to do.

Have  agreat weekend.


Saturday, January 28, 2012


Had a decent writing day yesterday. Putting the finishing touches on one story today. It's always great to type "The End" on a project.


Friday, January 27, 2012


I had a great day of writing and edits today. If all goes as planned, I'll finish this novella tomorrow. I'm just getting to the action-packed climax of the story, which is always fun to write. I'm enjoying the character of The Eagle and I'm excited to see the book in print from Pro Se Press as part of the Pulp Obscura line they're doing in conjunction with Altus Press. I've seen the cover and it is gorgeous.

I've got another novella (Lance Star: Sky Ranger for Airship 27), 2 comic scripts (can't divulge many details on these just yet, but 1 for Moonstone Books and 1 for New Legend Productions), and a novel (Domino Lady for Moonstone Books) on deck though. Plenty to keep me busy.

I also watched the first episode of Sherlock season 2. Good stuff.


Thursday, January 26, 2012


I had planned to write all day, but an interruption just minutes after I got started killed that plan. I finally got back in front of the computer tonight and was able to get in some decent writing time this evening. The words weren't flowing quite like I'd hoped, but I managed to turn out a little over 1,000 words on two different stories. Hopefully, they’re good words though.

Will get back to writing tomorrow.

Have a great night.

Next week, Earth Station One abandons ship! If you were trapped in an escape pod with only 5 entertainment items what would you take with you if you had to leave the station in a hurry? With all the technical difficulties we’ve been having at the ol’ Earth Station One station, it seemed like a timely topic.

We would still love to hear from you. What are your top 5 stranded in an escape pod items? Leave us a comment at www.esopodcast.com, at the ESO Facebook Group, email us at esopodcast@gmail.com, or call us at 404-963-9057 with your list. We might just read yours on the show.

Sinus pressure/headache sidelined me most of the day, but after re-recording the Earth Station One podcast version 2.0 (due to technical difficulties, which we'll go into when the episode goes live) I finally got some writing in.

After watching Justified, of course. What an incredible show. Some of the best writing on television at the moment, in my opinion. If you're not watching it, you should give it a shot. Tuesdays at 10 p.m. on FX (and they rerun it throughout the week). Seasons 1 & 2 are on DVD. 2 episodes have aired in Season 3.

Also picked up a comic book co-writing gig for a one shot issue tonight. I've known about it for awhile, but we're moving forward starting today.
Anyway, the clock is coming up quickly on 3:30 a.m. and my eyelids are starting to droop so I think it’s time to call it a night.

More writing tomorrow, however, as deadlines loom close.

Have a great night.

Ho Hum!

Highly unmotivated today even though I have a lot of work that needs to get done. I hate it when that happens. Oh well. I better get over that fast and get to work.


Monday, January 23, 2012


I had an OK writing day on Sunday. Weorked on my story for The New Adventures of The Eagle. Didn't accomplish as much as I'd hoped, but made a nice dent.

Had to go help my Dad clean out (and by clean out, I mean rearrange) his garage this morning, but I'm back in the office and ready to roll. Many words need to be written before recording the Earth Station One podcast this evening.

Happy Monday.

About Deadly Games!

They played the most dangerous game of all and death was only the beginning...

Six years ago, Police Detective John Bartlett and journalist Benjamin West were instrumental in the capture of notorious master criminal Darrin Morehouse. Their story played out in the media, rocketing both Bartlett and West into local celebrity status.

Today, Morehouse, still a master game player and manipulator, commits suicide while in prison. His death initiates one final game of survival for the people Morehouse felt wronged him the most. At that top of the list are Bartlett and West, who must set aside their differences to save the lives of Morehouse's other victims and solve one last game before a dead man’s hired killers catch them and his other enemies.

Deadly Games! is a fast-paced action/thriller featuring action, suspense, murder, and the occasional gunfire from Author Bobby Nash, the writer of Evil Ways, Domino Lady, Lance Star: Sky Ranger, and more.

Visit BEN Books at http://ben-books.blogspot.com/.

Work, work, work...

Got a decent bit of work done on Friday. A little over 1,000 words on The Eagle, a bit more work on updating my websites, and working on the cover for my upcoming novel, Earthstrike Agenda. It was a busy day.

Hoping to do more of the same today.

IDW's Zombies Vs. Robots Prose Initiative Phase 1--

I wrote a story for IDW's Zombies Vs. Robots prose line called "The Wall." My story is not in this first batch, but I wanted to share the information.



IDW Publishing continues expanding its prose publishing activities with a two-month-long "e-singles" promotion featuring all-new stories set in the gleefully gory ZOMBIES VS. ROBOTS universe. The property was first published in 2006 as a two-issue mini-series from the creative team of artist Ashley Wood and writer/editor Chris Ryall. Helpless to resist ZVR's rowdy mix of clunky, wise-cracking robots trying to stem the zombie apocalypse (the fault of clumsy scientists), with the remnants of mankind caught in the middle. There have been multiple ZVR miniseries, and in 2010, Sony Pictures optioned the film rights for Michael Bay's Platinum Dunes production company.

Beginning on January 20, IDW will digitally release one new ZVR prose story each week for eight weeks.

"We're calling this our '8x8' plan," explains Jeff Conner, the IDW contributing editor responsible for the ZVR prose line. "Each week, from January 20 to March 9, we'll debut a new short story torn from the festering jaws of the shambling, clanking world that is ZOMBIES VS. ROBOTS. And these all-new tales will be a tasty $0.99 each—it's our New Year's gift to the brain-eating reading public."

"Pammi Shaw: Creator of Gods and Also Blogger" is the first 8x8 offering, and comes from the multi-talented actress/writer Brea Grant (Heroes, Dexter, Halloween II). Told via blog entries, her story extends the recent Zombies vs. Robots: Undercity comic book miniseries, which introduced readers to the young blogger from India, and ended with the members of an elite subterranean enclave underneath the Washington Monument being wiped out by ravenous zombies—or so we are led to believe.

"I wanted to put someone in one of the most difficult places possible by ripping away her community, family, and everything she knows, leaving her with her own thoughts," states Grant, whose writing credits include the IDW comics We Will Bury Youand Suicide Girls. "I wanted this person to deal with religion, love, gods and sanity all alone, separated from the raging violence outside. And who better to put in that position than a jaded, flippant teenage blogger named Pammi?"

"We're quite committed to e-singles," Conner noted. "They're such an effective way to present our scintillating shambling dead vs. gun-crazed warbot content. Going exclusively digital with 8x8 was, as we say around IDW, a no-brainer. For sure we'll be doing more digital-only promotions as the year unfolds."

Debuting weekly starting on January 20, 2012, the ZVR e-singles will be available on the Kindle, Nook and in iBooks. The full 8x8 schedule is:

Brea Grant -- "Pammi Shaw: Creator of Gods and Also Blogger" (1/20/12)
UnderCity's lone survivor continues her blog and meets (creates?) a digital deity with its own ideas about fighting the zombie apocalypse.

Brea Grant is sometimes a writer (We Will Bury You; Suicide Girls), sometimes an actress (Heroes; Dexter; Halloween 2) and all-the-time a nice person. She is currently directing her first film.

Steve Rasnic Tem -- "To Denver (with Hiram Battling Zombies)" (1/27/12)
What happens when high-test chronic is tainted with potent zombie blood? Will it be a high to die for?

Multiple award-winning author Steve Rasnic Tem has published over 300 short stories in the areas of fantasy, science fiction, crime, and horror. His latest novel is Deadfall Hotel.

Nancy A. Collins -- "Angus: Zombie-Versus-Robot Fighter" (2/03/12)
A young man is trained by his scientist father to fight zombies, robot-style. What could go wrong?

Nancy A. Collins is the author of numerous novels and short stories, including the best-sellingSunglasses After Dark, and was a writer for DC Comics' Swamp Thing. She is a recipient of the Bram Stoker and British Fantasy Awards, and has been nominated for the World Fantasy, Eisner & International Horror Guild awards. Left Hand Magic, the newest installment in the acclaimed Golgotham series, is now available.

Nick Mamatas -- "Throckmorton's Bad Day" (2/10/12)
Years before the zombie apocalypse, an enterprising and amoral young college student (later to become "Dr. Throckmorton in the ZVR comics) tests experimental street drugs on the local users. The results will have unforeseen consequences for his future self.

Nick Mamatas is the author of several unusual novels, including The Damned Highway with Brian Keene, and The Last Weekend. His short fiction has appeared in Asimov's SF, Long Island Noir and many other magazines and anthologies.

Amber Benson -- "Mademoiselle Consuela and Her Army of One" (2/17/12)
Like a princess locked in a tower, Consuela lives on a secluded island with only her loyal warbot for company. Then the pirates come…

Amber Benson is an actor, filmmaker, novelist and amateur occultist who sings in the shower. Best known for her work as Tara Maclay on Buffy The Vampire Slayer, she is also the author of the Calliope Reaper-Jones series and the co-director (with Adam Busch) of the feature film, Drones.

Don Webb -- "The Wizards vs. the Bots" (2/24/12)
Can black magic control zombies? What about warbots?

Don Webb has 20 published books ranging from the nonfiction occult classic Uncle Setnakt's Nightbookto the best weird west book, Webb's Weird Wild West.

Kaaron Warren -- "The River of Memory" (3/02/12)
An Amazon goddess thinks she can restore humanity to zombies; a warbot has doubts.

Kaaron Warren is an award-winning horror and science-fiction writer based in Australia. She has two short story collections and three novels in print.

Lincoln Crisler — "Kettletop's Revisionary Plot" (3/09/12)
A distraught scientist travels back in time in a desperate attempt to save his wife and prevent the discovery of the deadly Z Virus.

Lincoln Crisler is author, editor and reviewer as well as an active-duty soldier in the United States Army. His books include Magick & Misery and Wild. He is the editor of the dark-superhero anthology Corrupts Absolutely? He has served as a contributing writer for The Horror Library and Shroud Magazine.

Analog media fans needn't worry that IDW's new ZVR stories will only be available in e-pub formats. "We aren't abandoning print in any way," confirms Conner. "From the beginning we designed the ZVR prose program to have distinct identities for print and digital. So while it's true that there will never be print incarnations of any of the 8x8 series themselves, we do have a full slate of ZVR collections and novellas in production on the print side; the '8x8' stories will appear there, just in different contexts."

The first print collection will be THIS MEANS WAR!, set to appear in March, 2012.

"PAMMI SHAW: Creator of Gods and Also Blogger" ($0.99, digital only) will be available on the Kindle, the Nook, in iBooks, and Kobo on January 20, 2012.

ZVR: THIS MEANS WAR! ($17.99, 342 pages, 6″ X 9″ hard cover, full color) will be available in stores in March 2012. ISBN 978-1-61377-143-3.

Eighty Three--

Update on Howard Hopkins. Due to an error with the insurance company his life insurance had expired and his wife is having trouble with burial costs. Friends in the pulp, writing, comics, and western community
are pitching in to help. Meteor House Press is offering a sale on their books with all of the proceeds going to help Dominique with these expenses. See details below.

Thanks for anything you can do.


This is a message from noted New Pulp Author and historian Win Eckert and is posted here at his request and in hopes that You will reach out to assist the family of Howard Hopkins in this time of need.

Please forward the following as you see fit; it is copied from a post on the Yahoo "Flearun" and "Golden Perils" groups:

"At the request of Howard's wife, Dominique, Chuck Juzek contacted me and asked me to pass the following info along to the pulp fan community. Due to a mistake by their insurance agent 6 months ago that Dominique only became aware of after Howard's death, Howard's life insurance had lapsed at the time of his death. As a result, in addition to everything else that his passing means to her, she's now scrambling in order to find the funds to pay for his funeral expenses. If you have the ability, she's accepting donations to help pay for those expenses; at her request, I'm giving her address for anyone that wishes to contribute.

Dominique Hopkins
2 McKee Drive
Old Orchard Beach, ME 04064"




The tragic passing of pulp writer and editor Howard Hopkins at the age of 50: http://moonstonebooks.blogspot.com/2012/01/howard-hopkins-services-and.html, has been made even worse by the further misfortune of an insurance screw up.
So here’s the deal

Give to a good cause and get something for yourself. The first $100 worth of orders that come in between now and midnight January 20, 2012, you get the books, and Dominique Hopkins gets the money.

For those of you who have a copy of The Worlds of Philip José Farmer 1: Protean Dimensions, but have not yet ordered your matching numbered copy of The Worlds of Philip José Farmer 2: Of Dust and Soul, there’s no time like the present. And if you haven’t yet bought either book, make sure you take advantage of our Combo Deal that will save you at least $10 off your order.

Some of us at Meteor House have worked with Howard and learned a lot from him. He cared about the craft of writing and was generous with his time, he will be sorely missed. Therefore we’d like to do this little thing for Howard’s family. The rest is up to you. Of course you don’t have to buy our books, especially if you already have them. If you already have both, you can just drop a little check in the mail to the address above, or paypal a small amount to sales@meteorhousepress.com (by midnight January 20th) and we’ll add it to the total we’re sending.

For more information, please visit http://meteorhousepress.com/

A Writing I will Go... A Writing I will Go...

I had a pretty decent writing day today. I worked on a novella and a graphic novel script, among a few other things. Should have accomplished more, but I got off to a slow start. More writing tomorrow, but now it's time for a little TV. Hello, Justified and White Collar. Which should I watch first?

Remembering Howard Hopkins

Remembering my friend, Howard Hopkins. In his own words. An interview I conducted with him not too long ago for All Pulp http://allpulp.blogspot.com./

You can read the interview with Howard at http://www.newpulpfiction.com/ where it has been reprinted.

Howard was especially excited for the upcoming novel, Lone Ranger: Vendetta. I joked with him that he was destined to be the answer to a trivia question one day as he wrote the first Lone Ranger novel of the 21st century. Welcome to the history books, buddy.


Bobby Adds Metropolis To 2012 Convention Schedule

From Bobby's 2011 Metropolis visit
Bobby has been added to the guest line up for the Metropolis Super Con on March 10 - 11, 2012 in Metropolis, IL, home of the giant Superman statue and two amazing museums, the Superman Museum and the Hollywood Americana Museum. Free admission to both if you come to the convention.

R.I.P. Howard Hopkins

Came home from the ESO podcast to some sad news. Howard Hopkins, a good friend of mine and an extremely talented writer has passed away. I have no words. Howard was a dear friend and this news shocks me greatly. He and his talents will sorely be missed. I know that Howard was incredibly excited by his upcoming projects and I hope you'll check his new books out when they become available.

I'll miss you, buddy.

Sad news.



Not Actual Cover!
A late night writing session turned into a long one. I wrote a little over 2,300 words on my story for Pulp Obscura’s The New Adventures of The Eagle anthology. I had a really fun idea for the set up and opening and I think it came together quite nicely.

I probably won't get as much writing accomplished tomorrow as I have a lunch meeting to discuss some exciting upcoming projects.

After that the Earth Station One crew is recording on location at Dr. No’s Comics in Marietta, GA. Should be a fun day. It’s all about the bad guys this week. And where better to talk about the ultimate baddies than Dr. No’s Comics and Games in Marietta, GA and we would love to have you join us. We start recording at 2 p.m. Visit Dr. No’s at http://drnos.com/.

And for those that can’t join us in person, we would still love to hear from you. Who are some of your favorite bad guys? Leave us a comment at http://www.esopodcast.com/, at the ESO Facebook Group, email us at esopodcast@gmail.com, or call us at 404-963-9057 with your list. We might just read yours on the show.

It’s all about the bad guys on the next Earth Station One.

Oh, yeah. I also answered some interview questions. The interview should go live on Monday. I'll post links here as soon as I know the details.

Have a great weekend.

Cover Design

I've been working ont he front cover design for the upcoming BEN Books release of my sci fi novel, EARTHSTRIKE AGENDA. I've finally come up with a cover I'm happy with so I wanted to share it here. Of course, the eagle-eyed among you might have already seen it in the Coming Soon section or at http://ben-books.blogspot.com/.

I still have to design the back cover and do some design work on the inside as well. Plus, with writing deadlines pretty heavy at the moment it will be a few months before this one is ready. As soon as I have the back cover and back cover copy ready I will share that here as well.

Have a great weekend.


The end... and a beginning.

Not The Cover
Finished my story for The Spider anthology in a late night writing session. I just couldn’t get my writing muscles working during the day today, but a couple thousand words tonight came in handy. My story is called "Fear The Dark" and it has been sent off to my editor at Moonstone Books.

Next up, I've got a story to do for The New Adventures of The Eagle for Pulp Obscura then back to Lance Star: Sky Ranger (a novella for vol. 4 and finishing up the full-length novel) for Airship 27 and a graphic novel script for New Legend Productions after that.


Not The Cover
But all that can start in the morning. Or rather, later this morning as it's after 2 a.m. as I type this.

For now, I think sleep sounds like a good idea.

Where did my day go?

The real world got in the way today so no writing. Sadly, a large portion of tomorrow looks to be more of the same. Oh well. Will get back to work on The Spider tomorrow evening.

Behold-- The Master of Men!

Had a really good writing day. I wrote right at 3,000 words on The Spider, which I plan to finish tomorrow. Just finished up some pick ups for this week's Earth Station One podcast. I'm taking the rest of the night for vegging in front of the TV. More writing tomorrow.

Stepping Into The Spider's Web!

I had a great day of writing today. It was gorgeous weather here in North Georgia with temps in the upper 60s. I love it so I took the laptop outside to do some writing. As a result I made a nice dent in my story for the upcoming The Spider anthology.

Taking a short break before recording the Earth Station One podcast tonight. Always a fun time doing the show.

Happy Monday.



Over on his blog, [http://barryreese.net/] Barry Reese posted a rough sketch by artist George Sellas of the image from Bobby’s story, “Where there’s Smoke...” for the upcoming Tales of the Rook anthology from Pro Se Productions Reese Unlimited imprint.

In "Where There’s Smoke..." In Atlanta, GA, a fire bug who is burning down buildings whose owners dared to oppose the arsonist’s employer. The Rook intervenes and finds himself in a fiery deathtrap.

Here’s that sneak peek at the sketch.
Sketch: George Sellas

From Barry’s blog:
Attached you’ll find a rough sketch by George Sellas depicting a scene from Bobby Nash’s Tales of the Rook story. Let this whet your appetite — and keep in mind that it’s only a rough sketch so while it’s awesome as-is, George is really knocking the ball out of the park on the finished stuff. I’m thrilled to have George on the project — his artwork is going to make the incredible stories by Fortier, Hancock, Bullock, Constantine and Nash even better!
