Casting Call 2: The Evil in Pemberley House

Following up on Brad Mengel's original post, and my brief reply, on dream casting The Evil in Pemberley House:

Patricia Wildman: still down with Christina Hendricks.

Dr. James Clarke "Doc" Wildman (Patricia's father): Chris Hemsworth (minus the long hair & beard).

Adelaide Lupin (Patricia's mother): Eva Green.

The Dowager Duchess of Greystoke: I'm fine with Brad's suggestion of Dame Maggie Smith.

Richard Deguy: Richard Greene (since Phil Farmer said Deguy looked like Greene).

Carla Deguy/Ghost of Bess of Pemberley: Olivia Wilde.

Helen Benson (daughter of Mr. Benson and Ellen Patrick): Beau Garrett.

Dr. Augustus Moran: Michael Caine.

Wold Newton novel Evil in Pemberley House SOLD OUT!

The Wold Newton novel The Evil in in Pemberley House, by Philip Jose Farmer and, well, me, is sold out at the publisher.

Perhaps a few copies of the Trade and Limited editions at Camelot Books.

And that's pretty much it, except for copies, as they pop up, on eBay and ABE Books.

The daughter of Doc Wildman... The Sherlockian mythos... A kick-ass cover by the incomparable Glen Orbik...

"Call now, supplies are limited!" and so forth. :-)

Casting Call : The Evil in Pemberley House

Brad Mengel is starting a neat little series of blog posts imagining the movie casts of his favorite books, and I'm honored he's started with The Evil in Pemberley House.

I am definitely down with his suggestions for Christina Hendricks as Patricia Wildman...

...and Monica Belluci as Patricia's mother, Adelaide Lupin...

... although I had originally envisioned Angelina Jolie for the role...

I'll put together my own cast suggestions soon. Thanks Brad!
