Celebrating German Unity Day with a new release: Flying Bombs

I used the long holiday weekend to get a new e-book ready for release. Though it features a familiar face or rather mask, for my retro-pulp hero, the Silencer, is back.

Hardworking pulp writer by day and steel-masked vigilante by night, Richard Blakemore keeps Depression era New York City safe from all sorts of criminal low-lives. After being almost executed for a crime he didn’t commit, Richard now takes on the very symbol of Dieselpunk retro-futurism, the Zeppelin.

That’s also the reason why I dug up the photos my grandfather took of the Graf Zeppelin. Because my grandfather’s 83-year-old photo is now on the cover of the latest Pegasus Pulp release, digitally cleaned up of course.

And now, without further ado, I give you Flying Bombs.

Flying Bombs 1936: A madman calling himself the Master of the Air threatens to let death and destruction rain down upon New York City. No one take him seriously, until an airship taxi suddenly explodes the very next day. But was it an accident or sabotage? Police Captain Justin O’Grady and the masked vigilante known as the Silencer both investigate the case. But it’s a race against time, because the Master of the Air has already set his sights on a new target: The Zeppelin Imperator, the largest airship ever built…

For more information, visit the dedicated Flying Bombs page, which includes lots of background information and links about the history of airships.

Buy it for the low price of 2.99 US-dollars or Euro or 1.99 Pound Sterling at Amazon US, Amazon UK, Amazon Germany, Omnilit/AllRomance ebooks and XinXii.

    I really like that you give your fonts a shadow now – the outline of the words comes across better in the smaller preview pictures that way. And how cool is it that you can use a private authentic Zeppelin pic ^^.

      I had to experiment a bit with the image processing program to get the hang of it. I may eventually redo some of the older covers, especially Shape No. 8 which doesn’t get a whole lot of love.

      The Zeppelin photo was indeed an awesome find – and no copyright hassles either. Among many other things, I also found a group portrait of a WWI era Prussian regiment complete with Pickelhaube and everything. Most likely, it shows my great-uncle who was a member of the “Lange Kerls” lifeguard regiment. I also found several photos of cheerfully partying people in the 1920s and dozens of photos of the athletes of the Männerturnverein Bremen from the 1920s to 1950s (both my grandparents were enthusiastic sports people. Somehow that particular gene must have skipped me). I even found a few baby photos of myself
