The Anti-Gravity Steal

The Anti-Gravity Steal features Ned “Noc” Brenner, a golden boy millennial, a drifter gifted at whatever he attempts -- surfer, motocross rider, b-baller, a master at blitz chess to shooting craps in a back alley.  It all comes so easy to Noc. But when he saves a fellow player from kidnapping after exiting an all-night poker game, he’s courted by a shadowy entity run by one of the world’s richest, most reclusive and idiosyncratic men. 
Noc is challenged to use his abilities for a greater purpose.  Soon he’s in deep, working with a man who can be anyone else, an enigmatic woman with black ops trained esper powers, and a professor haunted by tragedy loosing himself in creating gadgets.  They're in a race to prevent the super villain Prospero from auctioning off an anti-gravity device he stole – a machine that in the wrong hands would imperil untold millions.  In the vein of Doc Savage and the Avenger, comes Noc Brenner, a 21st century adventurer with a few dark secrets of his own. 


The Bloodstone Confidential

The Bloody Curse of the Vampire! Years ago Gideon Synn tried to save Faith Bloodstone from a deadly family curse in upstate New York. He failed and Faith died at the hands of a mysterious blood drinking fiend. Synn ran from his failure and became a world traveler, joining the French Foreign Legion and eventually becoming a mercenary in China.
Now, years later he has opened a security firm with his sister Kathy. Charity Bloodstone, Faith’s younger sister, comes to him for help against the same curse—the supposed vampire ghost of her ancestor, Justice Bloodstone! According to legend, Charity has only one week to live!
Several people have been killed by what appears to be the undead Justice in ways that suggest a supernatural cause. The Synn siblings are drawn into a whirlwind of terror and evil as the mystery of the vampire murders comes closer and closer to fulfilling the curse.
Has Gideon found love with Charity only to lose her to dark forces? Who are the armed thugs that have attacked the siblings? Can Kathy Synn keep her brother out of trouble long enough to solve the mystery of the Bloodstone Confidential?

Manchurian Shadows
by Teel James Glenn


I’m pleased to announce the publication of the second book in the Dr. Shadows series of adventure thrillers, Manchurian Shadows! In this first full length novel of the granite man he travels from the streets of the Bronx to Harbin City in Manchuria where the occupying Japanese have a deadly secret he must uncover!
Written in full bore pulp style the book is like stepping back to the 1930s themselves!
When a messenger arrives with a mysterious message from China, Dr. Shadows, the man of granite, finds himself caught in an intrigue that spans from Japan to China to the United States. As the world lurches toward World War II, the U.S. struggles to recover from the depression while the war between Japan and China continues to escalate, and China relief funds, both real and bogus, appeal to mostly indifferent Americans for help to the refugees and victims of a brutal war.
            Author Teel James Glenn continues the adventures of the mysterious Dr. Shadows in a novel that is both an homage to 1930s-style pulp and an exciting story. Although Glenn writes with a pulp style, Dr. Shadows is more than a single-dimensional character. With his love for Hank, his concern for the oppressed in China and elsewhere, and his feelings for then-occupied Korea, Shadows resonates with the modern reader while still being true to his era.
            Glenn's background as a martial artist, fight scene coordinator and stunt man really pay off in the action scenes. Fans of history will get a kick out of Teel's attention to detail and pulp action fans will want to keep their eyes open for Dr. Shadows's off-hand mention of some of the other pulp heroes patrolling the streets of New York.

Crag Banyon mystery, Bum Luck

When a desperate leprechaun needs to locate his lost pot of gold, there's only one P.I. in town dogged and sober enough to take the case. Unfortunately, his first choice is in Bimini dodging an IRS audit, so he calls on Crag Banyon instead.

That's just the start of a string of increasingly lousy luck that hounds Banyon from one emerald end of his latest crummy job to the other, where it turns out that a trip over the rainbow isn't the fun-and-booze-filled romp that all the brochures claim. Banyon finds that the whole leprechaun world is upside-down, while at the same time our own world is suffering through a mealtime catastrophe that's threatening side dishes from here to Thanksgiving and beyond.

Toss in a femme fatale more fatale than usual, along with a sexy dame reporter who's so untrustworthy even her curves are crooked, and Banyon finds that he's up to his pretty little eyeballs in more trouble than one plucky, partially plastered P.I can handle. Not without doubling his rates and/or tripling his booze consumption.

Soul Slam
Soul Force Book 1
A sixteen-year-old on her first heist to steal an ancient Egyptian amulet inadvertently receives the soul of King Tut…and the deadly curse that comes with it.
                And Olivia is not alone at the museum.
                A member of a secret society, Xander believes it is his place to inherit King Tut’s soul and justly rule. He knows nothing about the society’s evil plan to control the world or the curse. Now, he must deal with the female imposter who stole the amulet.
                Xander convinces Olivia they must form a temporary partnership. The two teens develop a connection, and together they must figure out how to end the curse before it turns deadly. On the run, unable to touch because of the curse, and managing the male soul inside her female body, Olivia must learn to trust Xander.
As the mystery surrounding the amulet unfolds, Olivia and Xander start to fall for each other. But is love enough to save them and the world from destruction?




Airship 27 Productions delves into the world of fantasy adventure with an action packed novel set in the days of the Russian empire building.


For generations, the freedom loving Cossacks battled their enemies; the Ottoman Turks and Crimean Tartars for the supremacy of the rugged Steppes.  Frustrated by the constant raids of these reckless, horse-riding warriors, Constantinople prepares a major campaign that will end the Cossacks and their way of life forever.


Realizing they are severely outnumbered against such a Turkish reprisal, the Cossack Headsman seeks out the sorcerer Alexsandr with a bold scheme.  He wants to Alexsandr to enter the realms of magic and enlist the aid of magical creatures of Slavic myth as allies. With the help of his friend, Commander Marko and the battled hardened Bohun, the wizard must summon all his skills, both martial and arcane, to fulfill his sacred mission and in doing so save his people.


“When I first read the manuscript, I was very excited,” says Airship 27 Productions’ Managing Editor, Ron Fortier.  “There seems to be very little interests these days in classic adventure tales.  This marvelous book is the exception we’ve been waiting for.”


In the grand tradition of Robert E. Howard and Harold Lamb, writer Riley Hogan spins a tale of tested comrades about to risk all in a dangerous quest that, if they survive, could lead to the greatest victory in Cossack history.

Now available at Amazon and on Kindle.
