Ron Fortier Unbound

Let's see how long I can pull this "Unbound" in every title thing before you all get bored.

My editor Ron Fortier had some very kind words to say about the new novel. Be sure to give Ron's article a read through -- some interesting stuff in there, not just about me but the future of publishing too! And then go like... A dozen copies of the book. :)

Interview... Unbound

I was recently interviewed by fellow Green Lama scribe W. Peter Miller, which you can read here.

Peter is an incredibly talented write in his own right, his short story "Studio Specter" -- which you can read here -- is much closer in line with the original Green Lama tales than mine, something I simply don't have the skill to do. Be sure to check out the interview and keep reading his blog, you won't be disappointed.

Additionally, in a more surreal observation, The Green Lama Volume 1 is the number one listed item when searching on Amazon, directly above the original comic collections... I honestly don't know how I feel about that.

Best Wishes...

THE GREEN LAMA – UNBOUND will be released by Cornerstone Book Publishers this coming Friday and this is a first time ever view of the cover. This really promises to be one bang-up great book with praise after praise coming in from all corners. This is really one not to be missed!


Airship 27 Productions and Cornerstone Book Publishers are thrilled to announce the release of their second book starring the Master of the Mystic Arts, the Green Lama, in a brand new, full length novel by Adam Lance Garcia. THE GREEN LAMA – UNBOUND is a cover to cover literary roller-coaster ride of action and adventure by one of the finest new pulp writers on the scene today.

When Jethro Dumont’s friend, Jean Farrell, disappears on the small Greek island of Samothrace, he and associates fly off to rescue her. Upon their arrival, they discover the forces of evil have gathered in this out of the way place in search of the Jade Tablet and the unholy grimoire known as the Necronomicon. It is the book of rituals that will allow the Nazis and their allies to call forth the Great Old Ones, led by the demon god, Cthulhu.

Now it is up to the Master of the Mystic Arts, the Green Lama, to uncover the mysteries of those ancient rites and thwart the powers of chaos. But before he can do so, he will have to use all the unique skills at his command at the same time rely on the bravery and loyalty of his friends. THE GREEN LAMA – UNBOUND is a non-stop pulp thriller that explores the Green Lama’s past, detailing for the very first time elements of his origin never made known before.

Pulp Factory Award nominated writer Adam Lance Garcia also provides a special essay on his trip to the Kendell Foster Crossen Archives at Boston University, shining more light on the man who created the Green Lama. Accompanied by the masterful artwork of Pulp Factory Award nominated artist Mike Fyles, with designs by Pulp Factory Award winner, Rob Davis, THE GREEN LAMA – UNBOUND belongs in every pulp fan's library.

“Both Adam Garcia and Mike Fyles have a strong affinity for the Green Lama,” added Ron Fortier, Editor of Airship 27 Productions. “It is so clear in their work that this was more than just another project to them, but a true labor of love for these talented creators.” THE GREEN LAMA – UNBOUND is sure to become a modern day pulp classic.

Sharing the Love

The wonderful Greg Hatcher over at Comic Book Resources gave Green Lama Unbound a nice little shout out along with some very kind words.

Despite what Greg might say, I wouldn't say I'm one of the best writers with Airship 27, but I'll take the compliment for sure. Thanks, Greg!

Be sure to check out Greg's blog, not just for Green Lama posts, but for some really great commentary on comics, pulps and film.

Thinking in Colors

As the temperature in New York breaches the triple digits again I can't but see the world in yellows; hot and sticky, as if the Sun decided to sit down on the sidewalk and rest his legs.

It made me realize how much we see the world defined by color palettes. Winter is blues and whites. Spring is greens and browns and blues. Fall is browns and oranges and reds.

Think of your favorite films and how they use colors and color palettes to define scenes and locations; to indicate emotions. The Wachowskis used greens and blues to define the difference between the Matrix and reality. The characters in Unbreakable were defined by green and purple.

When writing Green Lama: Unbound I kept in mind one specific color to help keep the tone of the novel in place, and despite all evidence to the contrary, it wasn't green (or jade for that matter).

It was black.

One of the main themes of the books in the idea of the encroaching darkness. The Second World War in on the horizon, Cthluhu is rising, the world is becoming a darker place. The shadows are deeper, thicker, like ink on a page, spreading over the characters and threatening swallow them whole.

It's partially why I am so in love with Mike Fyles work on the book and promotional images -- without me ever saying so, he created a litany of images filled with dark shadows covering the characters, their visages just peaking through the darkness like light at the end of the tunnel.


Also be sure to check Pete Miller's blog Doc Savage Tales for an upcoming interview with your  truly (though I will admit this whole thing is a little surreal).
