The Bay Phantom IS upon us! From Airship 27-- Createspace and Amazon

THE BAY PHANTOM

A Confederacy of Devils
 Airship 27 Production announces the release Chuck Miller’s newest pulp thriller, The Bay Phantom – Confederacy of Devils.

Mobile Alabama in the early 1920s is a hot-house of history, tradition, political corruption and racial bigotry.  Amidst this landscape of both grandeur and depravity arises a new avenger to battle the forces of evil and injustice.  He is the mysterious Bay Phantom, a dark clad warrior willing to mete out justice with his blazing .45s.  But beneath this flamboyant mask is the often inept, naïve Joseph Perrone, heir to a commercial fisheries empire.

Perrone’s one amazing asset is his partner, the beautiful Mirabelle Darcy, a young black woman with the ninth highest I.Q. in the world.  An engineering genius, it is Mirabelle who provides Perrone with the guidance to see him through the deadly and macabre challenges that await them.  A secret Crime Lord is attempting to take over the city and has unleashed a blood-thirsty Werewolf and a bizarre assassin known as the Black Embalmer to carry out his insidious plans.

Now it is up to Mirabelle and the Bay Phantom to save their city with the help of an Austrian doctor named Sigmund Freud.  And that’s only the beginning!

“Chuck Miller possesses one of the most unique literary voices in New Pulp today,” declaires Airship 27 Productions’ Managing Editor, Ron Fortier.  “I defy anyone to show me something he has written that is not original, quirky and just plain weird in a totally fun kind of way.”

Miller was born in Ohio, lived in Alabama for many years, and now resides in Norman, Oklahoma. His interests include monster movies, comic books, music and writing. He holds a BA in creative writing from the University of South Alabama.  Miller received the BEST NEW WRITER OF 2011 Award from Pulp Ark. His first novel, the critically acclaimed "Creeping Dawn: The Rise of the Black Centipede" was published in 2011. He is currently working on a new Sherlock Holmes novel for Airship 27.

Art for The Bay Phantom – Confederacy was provided by Zachary Brunner, both moody interior illustrations and the stunning painted cover.  The book was designed by Art Director Rob Davis.

Says bestselling adventure fantasy author, Charles Saunders, “Move over Shadow – there’s a new cloak on the block.”

The Bay Phantom is almost upon us

Mobile, Alabama, 1931.

Joe Perrone is a wealthy young man, heir to a commercial fishing fortune, whose parents and older brother were murdered by burglars. Mirabelle Darcy is his housekeeper.
They have secrets.

Joe has a darkness inside him, and it has led him to forge a strange path for himself. Joe puts on a mask and a cape at night and fights crime as the Bay Phantom. He has not donned the mask in three years, since his epic battle with the diabolical Doctor Piranha left him feeling uncertain about the condition of his own soul. But, after a period of wandering and reflection, he has returned. He does what he believes he must, fighting mobsters, killers, fiends,  a corrupt police force, and a city administration that does not want his help. He operates according to his own personal philosophy and moral code, and keeps his identity a secret so he can continue his work unimpeded.

Mirabelle is one of the nine smartest people in the world. Her IQ is virtually incalculable, and she has mastered a dozen different scientific disciplines on her own. She is also black, and she lives in a society deeply divided by segregation and oppression. To reveal her intellect and secret accomplishments would be to invite scorn, ostracism-- and, quite possibly, lethal violence. So she labors in secret.

Tull House, a 200-year-old former smuggler's den on the Mobile Bay is their home.
When a deadly struggle begins between the powerful, covertly criminal Carter family and an upstart named Hector Sams and his mysterious backers, Joe and Mirabelle find themselves in the middle of a hurricane of mystery and murder, and are locked into a deadly struggle of their own, against the horrific avatars of the two warring factions: The Werewolf and the Black Embalmer.

Even with the help of Doctor Sigmund Freud, can Joe and Mirabelle unravel the lies, secret associations, and conspiracies in a town where absolutely nothing is what it seems? Can they preserve the lives of innocent citizens caught up in the gang war, and their own lives as well? Will they live long enough to discover the most deeply-buried secrets of all-- the unremembered traumas that made them what they are?


Find out in "A Confederacy of Devils" by Chuck Miller, with art by Zachary Brunner, coming soon from Airship 27.
