Uncategorized

Cover art by Glen Orbik

On the heels of announcing the ebook edition of The Scarlet Jaguar (an Original Pat Wildman Adventure) by Win Scott Eckert, Meteor House is completely over the moon to announce our publication of the original Pat Wildman adventure: The Evil in Pemberley House by Philip José Farmer and Win Scott Eckert!

Out of print since 2010,  this hard-to-find gem is now available in an affordable edition from Meteor House. The Evil in Pemberley House was previously only available in a $40 hardcover limited edition, and a $60 signed and numbered limited edition, our $20 trade paperback is a golden opportunity for those who missed the long out-of-print hardcover and will be a welcome addition to any library.

But wait, there’s more! Our trade edition also includes these bonus features not found in the trade hardcover:

  • Foreword to the 2014 Edition
  • A Pemberley House/Wold Newton Family graphic tree
  • An Expanded Pemberley House/Wold Newton Family graphic tree, including SPOILERS from the novel
  • 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, Doc Savage: His Apocalyptic Life, and The Adventure of the Peerless Peer

Don’t forget, if you preorder by June 30th, your copy will be signed by Win Scott Eckert at FarmerCon IX in early August (all books will be shipped after FarmerCon, unless of course you come to FarmerCon, then you get your copy in person and we’ll refund the shipping charge!).

The Scarlet Jaguar – Ebook Now Available!

Uncategorized

Meteor House is thrilled to announce the expansion of our ebook catalog, adding Win Scott Eckert’s The Scarlet Jaguar to our earlier release, Christopher Paul Carey’s Exiles of Kho.

Winner of the 2014 New Pulp Award for best novella, The Scarlet Jaguar was published as a Signed Limited Edition trade paperback in the summer of 2013 and quickly sold out. If you missed getting a copy, now is your chance as Meteor House is pleased to release the digital edition for Amazon’s Kindle devices. (A Barnes & Noble Nook version will follow soon.)

The Scarlet Jaguar, a sequel to The Evil in Pemberley House (cowritten by Philip José Farmer and Win Scott Eckert), is Pat Wildman’s second adventure, but by no means her last, as Eckert is hard at work transcribing her next exploit.

THE SCARLET JAGUAR

When we last saw Patricia Wildman, daughter of Doc Wildman, the bronze champion of justice, six months had passed since the main events of The Evil in Pemberley House. She and her associate Parker, an ex-Scotland Yard Inspector, had set up Empire State Investigations at her Pemberley House estate—and she just received a mysterious phone call from her supposedly late father . . .

Several months later, Pat and Parker undertake an investigation that takes them from Pemberley House in the Derbyshire countryside . . . To New York, where they battle agents of the Scarlet Jaguar and meet Pat’s old friend, the icy, pale-skinned beauty Helen Benson, who agrees to join them on their quest . . . To the small nation of Xibum, where the evil Scarlet Jaguar’s reign of uncanny assassinations threatens to expand to the rest of Central America—and beyond!

Now, it’s a race against time deep in the wilds of the Central American jungle, as Pat Wildman and her crew confront the Scarlet Jaguar’s weird power to eliminate his enemies from afar, marked only by a wisp of crimson smoke—smoke resembling nothing so much as the head of a blood-red screaming jaguar. But who—or what—is the Scarlet Jaguar? A power-mad dictator determined to reclaim power? A revolutionary movement bent on taking over the country, and the rest of Central America?

Or a front for something even more sinister . . .?

Josh Reynolds – Interview!

Uncategorized

It turns out Josh Reynolds, author of the third in our series of Signd Limited Edition Novellas, Phileas Fogg and the War of Shadows, is a rather prolific writer.

How prolific, you ask? Rather than tell you about it here, let us direct you to his interview over at the Official Philip José Farmer Website. It’s the fifth interview in thier long-neglected (nudge nudge) series of interviews with writers influenced by Philip José Farmer.

Here are a few of our favorite moments from the interview:

The latter is one of the reasons I still re-read Farmer to this day—he’s so damn exuberant about all of these authors that you can’t help but feel your enthusiasm for the originals rekindled when you read something of his that references them.

Plus, you know…Phileas Fogg. Dude’s pretty cool, right? Who wouldn’t want to write about him?

It is almost a certainty that such will occur at a future date. The Exposition was a big deal, lot of people there. Probably at least four novellas going on at the same time. One of ‘em probably involves a robot.

It’s certain to whet your appetite, not only for Phileas Fogg and the War of Shadows, (which you should preorder now, while you still can…) but for Josh’s other work as well. There are even links to stories you can read for free online!
