Pulp Crazy reviews TALES OF THE WOLD NEWTON UNIVERSE!

Jason Aiken of Pulp Crazy has posted an incredibly thorough—and positive!—review of the newly-released anthology Tales of the Wold Newton Universe. Thanks Jason!


Coming Oct 8: TALES OF THE WOLD NEWTON UNIVERSE
Tales of the Wold Newton Universe

A collection of Wold Newton-inspired short stories by Farmerphiles, experts, and the Grand Master of SF himself.

Titan Books' Wold Newton Anthology, Tales of the Wold Newton Universe, will be released on October 8, 2013. Edited by Win Scott Eckert and Christopher Paul Carey, the book collects, for the first time ever in one volume, Philip José Farmer’s Wold Newton short stories. The volume also includes tales by other writers.

The Introduction by Eckert (coauthor with Farmer of the Wold Newton novel The Evil in Pemberley House) and Carey (coauthor with Farmer of the Khokarsa novel The Song of Kwasin) provides an overview of Farmer’s Wold Newton Family and Mythos. In addition, the editors provide brief introductions to the stories themselves, explaining why each entry is a Wold Newton tale.

Tales of the Wold Newton Universe is available for preorder at AmazonAmazonUK, and B&N. As with all the Farmer books from Titan, there will also be an eBook version.

Honey West & T.H.E. Cat: A GIRL AND HER CAT - Final Cover Design
And, without further ado,
Final cover art with title design by the incredible Doug Klauba!
It’s Honey West and T.H.E Cat, in the first new Honey West novel in over 40 years, A Girl and Her Cat!



Following on the heels of the first ever Honey West & T.H.E Cat crossover comic, Moonstone’s “Death in the Desert,” comes the Honey West & T.H.E Cat novel, A Girl and Her Cat…..

When an exotic green-eyed Asian doctor hires Honey to recover a stolen sample of a new Rubella vaccine from a rival scientist, the blonde bombshell private eye—suspicious but bored—takes the case. But after she’s attacked not once, but twice, on her way from Long Beach to San Francisco to track down her quarry, she knows there’s more—much more—to her femme fatale client than meets the eye.


Along the way, Honey’s one-time paramour Johnny Doom—ex-bounty hunter and current Company agent—reenters the picture, and the gorgeous doctor’s insidious—and deadly—grandfather deals himself in. But when Honey questions whether Johnny’s playing her game, or just playing her for a patsy, she joins forces—as only Honey can—with the one man in Frisco who can help her recover the stolen vaccine-cum-bioweapon and prevent worldwide genocide by germ-warfare—former cat burglar-turned-bodyguard Thomas Hewitt Edward Cat: T.H.E Cat! 

Join writers Win Scott Eckert and Matthew Baugh, and cover artist Douglas Klauba, for A Girl and Her Cat, a groovy, racy 1960s romp coming soon from Moonstone!
