Authors Sean Taylor, Ron Fortier, Alan J. Porter, and Bobby Nash joined Art Sippo on the latest episode of his Art's Reviews podcast for an in-depth look at the newly release The Ruby Files Vol. 2 from Airship 27 Productions. We also take a look back at the award-winning The Ruby Files Vol. 1. You can hear the episode HERE. NOTE: There were some technical issues with the recording near the end. Just wanted to warn ya.
One of the most popular New Pulp characters is back! Rick Ruby, noir PI extraordinaire, returns in a second volume of stories from some of the best authors in New Pulp. The first volume was one of the most popular and critically recognized books in 2012 and has remained a perennial favorite. Now Rick is back and the stories are better than ever.In this show I interview Ron Fortier, Bobby Nash, Sean Taylor, and Alan Porter about their contributions to this new volume. We delve into the origins of the character and the inspiration that each of the authors had for their stories.
UNFORTUNATELY, a thunderstorm landed on us towards the end of the program and the last 10 minutes of the interview was lost. But there is so much good stuff here(including a few tangents) that I don't think the fans will mind. There are also lotsa great xtras and links that feature the work of thee fine authors so check 'em out.
THE RUBY FILES VOL. TWO
A pulp/noir anthology
RICK RUBY IS BACK!
From spies, to gang wars, hangings and cold blooded murder, writers Alan J. Porter, Ron Fortier, Bobby Nash and Sean Taylor put Ruby through his paces. But in the end, the smart mouth shamus knows, to survive, he’s going to need a little help from his friends.
“Ruby is a classic private eye of the old school,” says Airship 27 Productions’ Managing Editor Ron Fortier. “I’ve always loved these characters from Sam Spade to Philip Marlowe. So when Bobby and Sean proposed this series to us, I was on board immediately. Volume one was lots of fun and our mystery fans wanted more. We were only too happy to provide them with this second volume. I even joined in the fun contributing my own Rick Ruby story.”
Well known popular artist Mark Wheatley returns for a second, stunning cover while Nik Poliwko turned in the nine beautiful interior illustrations. A super package then assembled by Airship 27 Productions’ Art Director, Rob Davis, for as yet another great quartet of P.I. adventures.
Mystery lovers will rejoice when they crack open The Ruby Files, Volume Two.
