Airship 27 Productions and Cornerstone 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."
A product of the Canadian pulps, the original LANCE STAR - SKY RANGER graced the newsstands from 1939 to 1944, a Dutton Press publication. 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 Conder 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 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!
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 another such aviation daredevil, LANCE STAR - SKY RANGER!
