A hospitable planet teeming with life is dominated by a race of humanoids less technologically developed than his adopted home world was, but Alpha decides here he can be of great assistance.
However not all the people of Earth feel the same way about him.
To some Alpha is an angel of hope in a world full of danger and discord. To others he is a potential weapon of mass destruction sent by some unknown entity, and must be stopped at all cost.
Unfortunately his unusual abilities attract the attention of both governmental agencies that seek to capture and control him, and a terrorist group willing to do whatever it takes to advance their own ideals. Can Alpha find some way to fit into this very polarized world, or will he always be an outcast even amongst those he wishes to serve for the better of all?

AIRSHIP 27 PRODUCTION
MARK HALEGUA’S THE BLUE LIGHT
Airship 27 Production is extremely proud to present a very special book in memory of one of pulpdom’s most enthusiastic fans and historians, the late Mark Halegua of New York who passed away last in 2021.
Amidst the Great Depression, Robert Ackers is an average guy trying to earn his living as a writer living in New York City. When a strange alien medallion comes into his possession and introduces him to an alien entity with incredible powers, his life is altered forever.
The being “in” the medallion can turn mild-mannered Ackers into a bonafide superhero, one encased in a seven-foot shell of pure blue light. With super-strength, invisibility, speed, and even telepathy, the Blue Light arrives on the scene with a bang, so become the dreaded foe of the local mobs and a hero to the neighborhood people.
But all isn’t fun and games as Ackers’ new career puts him in danger and those around him whom he cherishes, especially his new girlfriend, Sarah Baker. Inspired by the notes of the late Mark Halegua, writers Nancy Hansen and Lee Houston Jr. spin a wild and crazy story that is thrilling, humorous, and always fun from the first page to the last. Art Director Rob Davis provides the cover and artist Sam Salas the interior illustrations. The Blue Light is here to stay.
“Mark was one of the first people I met when entering the world of pulp fandom,” related Airship 27 Managing Editor Ron Fortier. “He was also one of the biggest New York Yankees fans in the world and when he learned I was a Red Sox fan, well there was no stopping his amusing jabs whenever we would hook up at pulp cons.” Over time Halegua embraced the birth of the New Pulp movement and became one of its strongest supporters, never failing to promote it whenever he could.
“It was Mark’s dream to become a pulp writer,” Fortier concludes. “Nancy and Lee and the entire Airship 27 team are proud to have made that dream a reality. Mark was a kind and loving soul and will live forever in our hearts.”
AIRSHIP 27 PRODUCTION – PULP FICTION FOR A NEW GENERATION!
When the world regained its senses technology had been reduced to the level of the 1800’s. The world governments no longer existed, until one Dr. Fulbright began rebuilding English society in New Southampton.
Fate seemed to intervene when Dr. Fulbright’s lab exploded and carved a giant crater in the center of the city. With Dr. Fulbright dead, the struggling city was left without guidance or authority.
Control was regained when brutal Queen Anne anointed herself the new city monarch. Anne quickly established a brutal regime bathed in blood and violence.
In light of death and oppression, the people of New Southampton seek saviors. In the darkness, some have heard the call for Revolution. Beings that have crawled out of the time of the Singularity to give the people hope. Many call these harbingers of salvation the Posthumans.
The Posthumans have risen from the ashes.
