The second Pat Wildman story
25 Aug 2013
The second book in July from Meteor House –see the previous entry– is the signed limited edition novella The Scarlet Jaguar, written by Win Scott Eckert. It is "Volume II of the Memoirs of Pat Wildman".

Cover: Mark Sparacio

Volume 1 in this series, The Evil in Pemberley House, was published by Subterranean Press in 2009. That novel was started by Philip José Farmer and completed by Win Scott Eckert. The second volume is solely written by Eckert.

Like with Exiles of Kho written by Christopher Paul Carey, see last's year entry on this, I have no place in the bibliography to put The Scarlet Jaguar in.
I really need to create a new page for this...
Doc Savage revisited and revised
25 Aug 2013
Meteor House released in July at FarmerCon VIII two new books. One of them is a special hardcover, 'The Definitive Edition', of Doc Savage: His Apocalyptic Life.
This revised edition has been edited by Win Scott Eckert, who also wrote the foreword and a biography of PJF. This special edition is filled with new Bonus Material, and also there are six Tributes, written by John Allen Small, Keith Howell, Rick Lai, Art Sippo, Christopher Paul Carey, and Will Murray.

Cover: Joe DeVito

This is a wonderful book for all the Doc Savage fans, or a "Book of Magic" as Win Scott Eckert calls it in his foreword.
Together with Farmer's Tarzan Alive this fictional biography was the start of the saga of the Wold Newton Family.
More Riders and Lovers
7 Aug 2013
Farmer collector Fred Fischer is a man that keeps me working, checking and correcting, as if I have nothing else to do... It sometimes starts with a question if I know of a certain printing from a foreign country, and before I know it takes me days to check everything and correct the data.
But to be honest, I love his contributions!

First I have added three additional publications of the story "Riders of the Purple Wage". Fred had found a second printing of the Spanish anthology Visiones Peligrosas I from publisher Orbis (1985). I myself have a copy of the third printing (1986).
This same anthology from Orbis had been published in Argentina, by Hyspamérica (1985). It is nearly the same book as the Spanish one, only the ISBN and publisher's name changed.

Next I added two publications of the novel The Lovers. The Spanish publication of Los amantes from Orbis (1985) also had an Argentinian edition from Hyspamérica (1986).
And because of one of the questions from Fred I had to check for a hardcover edition of Los Amantes by Spanish publisher Acervo (1975). Both the trade paperback editions from Acervo were already known to me.

Now I will have to check the other Acervo and the Orbis/Hyspamérica publications again. Thanks Fred!
