New Pulp Author, Win Scott Eckert shared the following with All Pulp. Win spoke about this project on Earth Station One Episode 114, which you can listen to here.


The Worlds of Philip José Farmer 3 – Now Available for Preorder! Includes my novelette "The Wild Huntsman," the secret origin of the Wold Newton Family! The tale is a direct sequel to "Is He in Hell?" and takes place in Wold Newton on the momentous day the Wold Newton meteor fell, Dec. 13, 1795, spawning the sprawling family of pulp heroes, the Wold Newton Family!

The "Summer of Philip José Farmer" continues -- preorder now at $5 off the cover price!
