New Pulp Stories








While I toil away on the next Anna Rykov story (currently at 10,500 words), I have been listening to new pulp stories on Audible from Airship 27. I met these guys at PulpFest.

They produce novels and anthologies of new stories featuring classic pulp fiction characters from the past, such as The Shadow, Domino Lady, and Secret Agent X. I have enjoyed several titles so far, including :

OCCULT Detectives Volume 1     OCCULT Detectives Volume 1

C.O. Jones: Mobsters & Monsters     C.O. Jones: Mobsters & Monsters

Ghost Squad: Rise of the Black Legion     Ghost Squad: Rise of the Black Legion

Dan Fowler G Man     Dan Fowler G Man

Secret Agent X  Volume 1     Secret Agent X Volume 1

I have thoroughly enjoyed all of these. All, except C.O. Jones: Mobsters & Monsters, are anthologies of four short stories by different authors. OCCULT Detectives Volume 1 features four different heroes in stories written by four different authors.

There are several more Airship 27 titles on my reading list, including:

Sgt. Janus, Spirit-Breaker     Sgt. Janus, Spirit-Breaker

Monster Aces     Monster Aces

Domino Lady: Sex as a Weapon     Domino Lady: Sex as a Weapon

Lance Star-Sky Ranger Volume 1     Lance Star-Sky Ranger Volume 1

There is one character, who is part of the collection, that really appealed to me. Ravenwood, Stepson of Mystery struck a chord with me. The characters and adventures of this supernatural detective, his stuffy English butler, and his mentor-monk, known as The Nameless One, remind me of my own characters. I have the following on my list as well:

Ravenwood: Stepson of Mystery Volume 1     Ravenwood: Stepson of Mystery Volume 1

Ravenwood: Stepson of Mystery, Volume 2     Ravenwood: Stepson of Mystery, Volume 2

Ravenwood Stepson of Myster...     Return of the Dugpa: Ravenwood Stepson of Mystery, Volume 3

I am really enjoying these stories, and I think you will too.
