Your Daily Ralph- The New Book Release list 5/28/14
The New Book Release List for the Week of 5/28/14
Only two new books this week. If I missed anything please resend it to me
THE MYSTIC WARRIOR
Airship 27 Productions turns its focus once more on a
classic pulp hero, the Green Lama, Mystic Warrior.
Jethro Dumont was a jaded, rich American who hungered to
find purpose in this world.His search
for self-knowledge and fulfillment led him to a secluded Buddhist monastery
high in the Tibetan Himalayas.There Dumont studied the mysteries of the orient at the same
time learning to accept the non-violent tenets of this ancient and venerated
philosophy.By the time he returned to America, he was
a changed man; one possessed with mental clarity and unique, mystic abilities
beyond the understanding of normal men.Now, with the aid of his Buddhist companion, Tsarong, he assumes the
identity of a new, eerie crime-fighter, The Green Lama!
For years the exploits of Green Lama have thrilled pulp fans
both in his own magazine, in comics and on radio.Now he returns to pulp action in this
collection featuring two previous issued classics by Peter Miller and Kevin
Noel Olson and two brand new, never before printed adventures by Nick Ahlhelm
and Robert Craig.From confronting Nazis
in his beloved Tibet to investigating
bizarre murders in a Hollywood movie studio,
Jethro Dumont’s new career is one filled with plenty of action and adventure as
the Mystic Warrior strikes again!
“This was one of the first pulp hero books we produced
almost nine years ago,” says Airship 27 Productions’ Managing Editor, Ron
Fortier.“At that time the anthology
featured a longer novella by another writer who has since moved on.Thus it became impossible for us to reprint
the book as it originally appeared.Last
year we were extremely lucky in recruiting Nick Ahlhelm and Robert Craig to do
two new stories allowing us to reshape the volume and reintroduce it to our readers.”
GREEN LAMA – MYSTIC WARRIOR features a cover by Isaac
Nacilla and twelve brand new interior illustrations by Neil T. Foster with book
design by Art Director Rob Davis.“We
hope our fans like what we’ve done with this character,” concludes Fortier.“After all, you just can’t have enough mystic
warriors in the pulp world.”

(May 22, 2014)White
Rocket Books proudly announces the release in trade paperback format of David Wright’sMY BROTHER’S KEEPER, Volume
1 of the “Galahad’s Doom” series!
Centuries ago, Saint Galahad came to the world of Lanis,
bringing with him the teachings of The Way. Before his death, the great Saint
was granted a vision of a cataclysmic future.
New to the king's army and relegated to remote border duty,
Galen Griffon led a peaceful life until a battle with marauders from the North
pulled him onto a path of Destiny. Meanwhile circumstances find his brother,
Lucas, on a much darker path, willing to do anything to prove his worth.
Ancient foes bide their time as the world moves closer to
war. Wizards and demons conspire to control the fate of the kingdoms. Omens
herald the days of Galahad's Doom and the Church awaits the rise of the
Torn between duty to king and god, Galen must decide if he
will embrace The Way or reject the beliefs of his forefathers. The fate of
Lanis, held under the Creator's gaze, hangs in the balance.
In this debut novel, popular New Pulp adventure author David Wright (Gideon Cain: Demon Hunter; Hero’s Best Friend) weaves a tale of
faith and magic; of temptation and redemption, as Galen must discover who he is
in a kingdom on the cusp of war.
“There's an odd tension between some conservative groups and
magic-based fantasy,” observes Wright.
“I decided to explore that area between faith and magic and found it fertile
ground for drama. I ended up with a hero torn between duties to church and
state. I'm excited to finally get this book out and look forward to hearing
“I already had tremendous respect and admiration for David
Wright’s skills as a writer,” says Van
Allen Plexico of White Rocket Books.
“But with this novel, he has exceeded everything his audience could have hoped
for and expected. This is a tour-de-force and a home run—and it’s powerful on a
spiritual level as well as being a terrific adventure story.”
The book boasts a spectacular cover painting by artist Mark Williams (Legion I: Lords of Fire).
