Pulp of the Week - Green Lama Vol. 1


Cover by Mike Fyles


This is an exciting day for me - the release of my first published fiction. I worked hard on this tale, a 15,000 word Green Lama adventure entitled, "The Studio Specter," and today it is unleashed by Airship 27 Productions and Cornerstone Books. The initial release is on Cornerstone's Lulu site and the subsequent release will be sold at Amazon and will be available for ordering at all major bookstores.

From the Press Release:
"Airship 27 Productions and Cornerstone Book Publishers are thrilled to launch their latest pulp anthology; The Green Lama, Master of the Mystics Arts.

Created by Kendal Foster Crossen back in 1940 for Double Detective Magazine, The Green Lama was intended to be competition for Street & Smith’s Shadow title. When wealthy young socialite, Jethro Dumont, traveled to Tibet, it was in search of enlightenment and purpose for his life. He found those plus a very rare and unique talent for the mystic arts. Empowered by powerful, arcane abilities, upon returning to the States, he has set forth on a new and bolder path, one of truth and justice. With his Buddhist sensibilities, Jethro Dumont became the most unique and memorable pulp hero of them all, The Green Lama.

In order to protect his true identity, Dumont created a second false persona, that of the Buddhist Dr. Charles Pali. Aided by young starlet Jean Farrell, Detective Caraway and others, The Green Lama thrilled readers young and old in both his pulp and comic book adventures.

Now he returns in three all new adventures written by today’s action-adventure scribes,
Kevin Noel Olson, Adam Garcia and W. Peter Miller. From the mountain tops of hidden Tibet to the streets of New York and the glitter of Hollywood, journey with this classic pulp icon as he once more battles the wicked in defense of the weak and innocent.

The Green Lama Volume One features twelve new black and white illustrations by Jay Piscopo and a gorgeous cover by Mike Fyles. Edited by Ron Fortier with designs by Rob Davis.

Ron Fortier has posted a great article on the creation of the art for the book on his Flight Log feature at Airship 27.

I have read the other stories and they are terrific. Adam Garcia's novella, "Horror in Clay," is particularly satisfying, and is the best Green Lama story I have ever read. The book is well put together with great stories and beautiful art. I am proud to be part of this volume.
