Step into the seedy underbelly with New Pulp's #1 P.I., Rick Ruby in the award-winning The Ruby Files Vol. 1 from Airship 27 Productions in paperback and ebook. Volume 2 is coming soon! 

Vol. 1 Cover Art:

Gangsters and Gun Molls! It was the 1930's and America was locked in the grip of the Great Depression. Gangsters controlled the major cities while outlaws roamed the rural back country. It was a time of Speak Easy gin-joints, Tommy-guns, fast cars and even faster dames. This is the world of New York based Private Investigator Rick Ruby, a world he is all too familiar with. From the back alleys of Gotham to the gold laden boulevards of Hollywood, Ruby is the shamus with a nose for trouble and an insatiable appetite for justice. So if you’ve got a taste for hot lead and knuckle sandwiches, tug your cuffs, adjust your fedora and light up a Lucky, a brand new pulp detective is coming your way. Created by pulp masters, Bobby Nash & Sean Taylor, Rick Ruby echoes the tales of Sam Spade and Philip Marlowe while offering up his own brand of two-fisted action. Joined by fellow pulp smiths Andrew Salmon & William Patrick Maynard, these modern scribes of purple prose present a quartet of tales to delight any true lover of private eye fiction.

The Ruby Files Vol. 2 is coming soon! Series creators Sean Taylor and Bobby Nash return with new stories and are joined by author Ron Fortier and Alan J. Porter. Interior illustrations provided by Nik Poliwko. Cover by Mark Wheatley.

Here's a sneak peek at vol. 2. Click on the images or open in new page for a larger view.

Bobby Nash and Buddy Roberts at
Hoover Library's Sci-Fi/Lit Fest 2016.
Ruby Files author Bobby Nash was interviewed by Buddy Roberts for Lakeside Living magazine when he was in Alabama back in October for the Hoover Library Sci-Fi/Fantasy Lit Fest. 

"I first met Buddy at the Alabama Phoenix Fest a few years back and we bonded over a mutual love of comic books and writing. Buddy does good interviews. It's always fun to chat with him," Nash said about the interview.

You can check it out on page 6 of the December 2016 issue now available here.

I decided to take advantage of the nice Thanksgiving weather to do some writing outside. I don't have any big plans other than lunch with my parents and brother so I'm working on one of the novels that a publisher is anxiously (or is that impatiently?) awaiting. I'm so far behind schedule on deadlines and still playing catch up. Lots to do. Lots to do. Moreover, I'm thankful to have understanding publishers. It means a lot.

I am also thankful to everyone who visits this page or follows my misadventures on social media. You guys help keep me going. I mean that seriously. Plus, thanks to my patrons over on Patreon for your help. A big thank you goes out to my readers and those who have bought books. I an so thankful that I can tell stories and it's a nice bonus that people actually buy and read them. I'm also thankful for my family. I don't share a lot of personal details, but 2016 has been rough on my family )2014 and 2015 weren't no prizes either, believe me), but we're still here and sill weathering the storm. I am definitely thankful for that.

I am also thankful to my Rick Ruby partner in crime-solving, Sean Taylor. Sean dragged me into this project kicking and screaming and I can't thank him enough for not taking "no" for an answer. It's been a wild ride, brother, and I look forward to seeing where the adventure takes us.

Happy Thanksgiving!

The Ruby Files author Bobby Nash was interviewed by the fine folks over at Awesomegang. They talked writing habits (the good, the bad, and the ugly), Sherlock Holmes, Domino Lady. influences, upcoming projects, and what books Bobby would want to have with him if he suddenly found himself stranded on a deserted island. "I'm thinking, as long as I had a laptop, electricity, and wi-fi, I'd be okay," Nash joked.

You can read the full interview here.

"Thanks, Awesomegang. You're awesome. But then, you already knew that."
