Via Meteor House: The Scarlet Jaguar hardcover going to print!

"We’re ordering a proof of The Scarlet Jaguar hardcover early this coming week and baring any corrections we should print the books by the end of the following week.

As of today the print run will only be 100 copies (we love making rare collectibles!) bringing the total print run for this title to 325 signed copies—225 paperbacks and 100 hardcovers.

But, that number could go up if we get a bunch of last minute orders in over the next week or so.

Remember, we only print a small number of books beyond the preorders, and we don’t expect these hardcovers to last past the end of the year.  So, if you missed out on the long-out-of-print paperback edition, get your order in asap!"

The Scarlet Jaguar - Reviews

"Eckert skillfully whips up a truly fun tale that blends both the sensibilities of classic pulp fare with some wonderful seventies James Bond touches that the savvy reader will recognize instantly. It’s a heady mash-up that works extremely well. The Scarlet Jaguar is a terrific new pulp actioner you do not want to miss."
-Ron Fortier, Pulp Fiction Reviews

"All the influences at work in this bookpulp heroes, old movie serials, classic sixties spy shows etc.—have one common factor; sheer fun adventure! There's certainly no shortage of that in this book."
-David Brzeski, The British Fantasy Society

"The Scarlet Jaguar feels like it should be a Doc Savage novel. The pacing, the organization, the language...if I didn't know better, I'd say Lester Dent's shade showed up in Win's office and said, "Scoot over, I'll show ya how it's done." I mean that as the highest praise; I consider Dent a world-class story teller, and Win's work here is a match for Dent's in quality.... It's a really great, riveting adventure that furthers Pat's understanding of her father and her own growth as a blight to evil-doers."
-Bill Adcock, Paperback Perils

The Evil in Pemberley House - Reviews

Booklist: "The Evil in Pemberley House. Farmer, Philip José (author) and Win Scott Eckert (author). Sept. 2009. 216p. Subterranean, hardcover, $40 (9781596062498). REVIEW. First published August, 2009 (Booklist).
In the many novels of the Wold Newton series, the late Farmer proved fond of enhancing the "biographies" of famous literary characters, such as Verne's Phileas Fogg and Burroughs' Tarzan, with fanciful, "uncovered" details. Here, collaborating with sf colleague and Wold Newton enthusiast Eckert, he recounts the fate of Patricia Wildman, daughter of pulp fiction icon Doc Savage. When her parents are presumed dead in a plane crash, 22-year-old Patricia assuages her grief in a spate of short-lived, unfulfilling love affairs. Then surprising news arrives: Patricia is the sole heir to Pemberley House, the estate featured in Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, and she sets off immediately for England. Eager for the change of scenery, Patricia comes well prepared to meet her bawdy cousins and 103-year-old dowager aunt, still living at Pemberley, but is less prepared for the restless ghost still haunting the estate. Part pulp romance, part erotic thriller, Farmer and Eckert's yarn is a steamy, intriguing addition to Wold Newton lore.
- Carl Hays

The Washington Times: "When super heroes are conflicted."
"It is safe to say that Patricia Clarke Wildman has sufficient baggage before she ever sets foot in the Pemberley House of Jane Austen fame...." "'Pemberley' is clearly a love letter rescued from the grave by co-writer Win Scott Eckert to Farmer's aged fans. It is replete with interrelated heroes and perverted sex scenes."
- Ron Capshaw, The Washington Times, October 2009

Green Man Review:
"This one is fun--a good, tight story, enough psychology to keep it interesting, villains galore, characters with eccentricities that only the English can manage gracefully, a rich context, and lots of sex."
- Robert M. Tilendis, Green Man Review, October 2009

The Evil in Pemberley House--back on sale!!

After the summer 2014 publication of the Meteor House edition of The Evil in Pemberley House, the Duchess of Greystoke—Pat Wildman herself!—wrote to me pointing out three minor errors, text which was missing from the original hardcover edition. This was mortifying, to say the least.

Due to major life events occurring at the same time--a relocation to another state for a new job--I was unable to give this situation the attention it deserved until recently. Consequently, I and Meteor House decided to stop selling the edition until we had a solid plan for correcting the errors.

I'm pleased to say that the book is now back on sale!

Meteor House will include an errata sheet, signed by me, with every new order of this first printing. For customers who already bought the book, Meteor House will include the errata sheet in the shipment of any of their latest books. For anyone not covered by this plan, Meteor House will make separate arrangements to send the signed errata sheet. Contact information for Meteor House is on their site:

I and Meteor House regret the error. The corrections will be incorporated into the book’s second printing and the ebook. And yes, we are actively planning to release the ebook soon (for both Kindle and Nook)!

Again, we apologize for the error and appreciate your loyal readership.

Viva Pat Wildman!
