Warehouse find! Rare Pemberley House chapbook!

Due to a warehouse find at Subterranean Press, I'm pleased to make available several copies of the ultra-rare, out of print chapbook which accompanied the Limited Edition of the novel The Evil in Pemberley House.

The cover by Killer Keith Howell features the Doc Wildman Coat of Arms, based on Philip José Farmer's written description in Doc Savage: His Apocalyptic Life, and supplemented with information from Farmer's private notes.

Chapbook contents:

  • An Expanded Pemberley House/Wold Newton Family graphic tree, which including SPOILERS from the novel
  • Notes on the Wildman Coat of Arms by Philip José Farmer
  • Outline for the novel by Philip José Farmer
  • A timeline of key events in the novel by Win Scott Eckert
  • A "Creative Mythography" essay by Win Scott Eckert, about the research and writing of the novel and ensuring it remained in continuity with Farmer's other Wold Newtonian works, such as Tarzan Alive, the aforementioned Doc Savage, and The Adventure of the Peerless Peer

  • Info on how to order is on my Signed Books page (along with many other goodies). If you missed the chapbook the first time around, you probably want to act now, 'cause once they're gone, they're gone.

    THE EVIL IN PEMBERLEY HOUSE Limited Edition still available?

    Reposted from, for anyone here who doesn't follow there:

    I while back
    I noted that the limited edition of The Evil in Pemberley House had sold out. This is true, insofar as ordering direct from Subterranean Press is concerned.

    However, I became aware today that
    Camelot Books appears to have some limited editions left in stock.

    The limited edition features:
    • chapbook cover art of the Doc Wildman Coat of Arms by Keith Howell
    • novel endsheets feature a Pemberley House/Wold Newton Family tree
    • chapbook features an expanded Pemberley House/Wold Newton Family tree, which including SPOILERS from the novel
    • notes on the Wildman Coat of Arms by Philip José Farmer
    • outline for the novel by Philip José Farmer
    • timeline of key events in the novel by Win Scott Eckert
    • Wold Newtonian essay by Win Scott Eckert
    If you're a reader of my Crossovers books (thank you!) and you haven't picked up Pemberley House, you're at least aware by now of the multitude of crossovers and references featured in the novel; so if crossovers are your thing, you're covered. ;-)

    If adventure with a bit of sex tossed in are your thing... well, Phil Farmer and I have got you covered there as well (don't let Glen Orbik's gorgeous "girl running away from house" cover fool you on that count; Patricia Wildman, the daughter of a well-known bronze-hued pulp hero, undergoes more than her share of Gothic travails, but she also knows how to kick ass, and she does).

    If I haven't convinced you yet, check out the reviews, and give the book a shot, if you haven't already done so.
