I’m pleased to remind my fellow pulp fiction fans that Meteor House will soon be publishing a trade paperback version of The Evil in Pemberley House by Philip Jose’ Farmer and Win Scott Eckert. This collaborative novel marks one of the two final published works by the late, great PJF, which came to completion thanks to the pen of his friend and most prominent successor as chief curator of the Wold Newton Universe concept (that would be Mr. Eckert; the other, his true last published work circa 2012, is The Song of Kwasin, concluded in collaboration with Christopher Paul Carey). This is the first of two original novels featuring Patricia Wildman published to date, this extraordinary woman being the daughter of none other than the legendary pulp hero Dr. James Clarke “Doc” Wildman, better known to pulp aficionados by a more, shall we say, Savage moniker.
This novel was previously published in two rather pricey hardcover editions by Subterranean Press, and has been out of print since 2010. Now it will be back in publication before the summer of ’14 is out, and in a more affordable format that has a lot of interesting extras. For full details and where to pre-order, simply go here. The second Pat Wildman novel by Win Scott Eckert, btw, is The Scarlet Jaguar.
