Book Description

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 receives a visitor, a young girl named Emma Ponsonby, whose father, a British diplomat to a small Central American country, has been kidnapped by the Scarlet Jaguar. Pat, following in her father’s footsteps of righting wrongs and assisting those in need, agrees to help, but before they can set off on their quest the Scarlet Jaguar sends a gruesome warning.

Undeterred, the investigation takes Pat, Parker, and their young charge 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 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 search for Emma’s father, and 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 . . .?


Editorial Reviews

Review

"All the influences at work in this book--pulp 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

"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, author of NOW Comics' Green Hornet, Pulp Fiction Reviews

Win Scott Eckert is the coauthor with Philip José Farmer of the Wold Newton novel The Evil in Pemberley House, about Patricia Wildman, the daughter of a certain bronze-skinned pulp hero. Pat Wildman's adventures continue in Eckert's sequel, The Scarlet Jaguar (the 2014 New Pulp Award winner for best novella). He is the editor of and contributor to Myths for the Modern Age: Philip José Farmer's Wold Newton Universe, a 2007 Locus Awards finalist. His critically acclaimed, two-volume Crossovers: A Secret Chronology of the World 1 & 2 was released by Black Coat Press in 2010. He has coedited three Green Hornet anthologies for Moonstone Books (the third, The Green Hornet: Still at Large, was the 2013 PulpArk Award winner for best anthology), and his tales of Zorro, The Green Hornet, The Avenger, The Phantom, The Scarlet Pimpernel, Captain Midnight, Hareton Ironcastle, Doc Ardan, The Domino Lady, and Sherlock Holmes, can be found in the pages of various character-themed anthologies from Moonstone Books, as well as anthologies such as The Worlds of Philip José Farmer (Meteor House), Tales of the Shadowmen (Black Coat Press), and Tales of the Wold Newton Universe (Titan Books). A Girl and Her Cat (coauthored with Matthew Baugh), the first new Honey West novel in over forty years, was published by Moonstone in early 2014.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Bronze Goddess Returns May 2, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
The Scarlet Jaguar is the second Pat Wildman novella and is officially set in the Wold Newton Universe of Philip Jose Farmer. Pat Wildman's first adventure was published as The Evil In Pemberely House co-written by Philip Jose Farmer and Win Scott Eckert. The Evil In Pemberly House is difficult to find these days, having sold out at Subterranean Press. Luckily Meteor House Press will be releasing The Evil In Pemberly House this summer at Pulpfest 2014 in paperback with a generous amount of bonus material. The Evil In Pemberley House is an erotic adventure novella that takes place in the spring of 1973 at the Pemberly House estate in Derbyshire England. This is the same Pemberely House from Jane Austen's Pride & Prejudice. It was here where readers were introduced to Pat Wildman for the first time.

Pat Wildman is the daughter of James Clarke Wildman Jr, or Doc Wildman for short. In the Wold Newton Universe he is the real life basis for the Doc Savage pulp character. Patricia or Pat as she is often called is a 22 year old crime fighter and adventurer who has followed in her father's footsteps. Her mother is Adélaïde Lupin, the daughter of the famous thief Arsene Lupin. With the benefit of Wold Newton enriched genes and training from a who's who list of crime fighting and adventuring mentors, she is just as capable as her famous father. She's also a bronzed knockout to boot, standing 6 feet tall with a body bikini models would die for.

The Scarlet Jaguar is set in 1974 .While the Evil In Pemberly House took place almost solely at the Pemberely Estate, The Scarlet Jaguar takes Pat and her friends on a jet setting adventure to the Central American country of Xibum, a country that has a place in her father's history.

5.0 out of 5 stars 70's Pulp Adventure at it's finest! May 26, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
A sequel to the novel 'The Evil in Pemberley House', a collaboration between Mr. Eckert and world famous Sci-Fi author Philip Jose' Farmer, Win Eckert continues the adventures of Patricia Wildman, daughter of a world renowned Pulp Hero, and world blazing adventuress in her own right.

Mixing the best of 30's/40's pulps with the 60's Mod spy genre into a 70's Grind-house soup. Win Eckert has made a delicious meal out of the kind of ingredients I love the best, and keeping with the Wold Newton concept created by P. J. Farmer, the stories landscape has familiar (If not named) favorite characters from books, television and film around every other corner.

The Story itself is most engaging, drawing you in, and making you care about the little family of heroes.
Heroes you can not only admire, but sympathize with as well.

Eckert learned from the master chef, Philip Jose' Farmer himself, and knows how to give us a FEAST!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sheer fun adventure! May 10, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Review based on the limited edition, purchased directly from the publisher.

This is the second original Pat Wildman adventure. The first was 'The Evil at Pemberley House', from Subterranean Press, which Win Scott Eckert co-wrote with the late science fiction Grand Master, Philip José Farmer. It's a limited, signed edition of 225 copies, so if you're interested grab it fast!
Pat Wildman is the daughter of 'Doc' Wildman, whose many adventures were published under a slightly different name. Most people will immediately figure out what name when they read of Pat's bronzed skin and gold-flecked eyes.
As one would expect from Win Scott, Eckert and Meteor Press, especially in a book in a series which Philip José Farmer had a hand in, it's full of references to Farmer's 'Wold Newton Family'. As well as Pat, we meet one Helen Benson, who has inherited some of her father's powers of disguise. Fans of sixties TV will also recognise a certain bird-named organization, whose soldiers are now mercenaries since a certain United Nations based task force put their leaders out of business. There are quite a few other references to other characters and stories by Farmer, Eckert and others. I won't spoil the fun by listing them.
Indeed, all the influences at work in this book—pulp 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.

This is the second in teh series of adventures of Patricia Wildman, daughter of the fabulous adventurer Doc Wildman. In this outing, Pat and her colleagues are trying to rediscover the secret source of her father's wealth in Central America. But at every turn they are confronted with the deadly weapon of the Scarlet Jaguar that freezes people into statue of red crystal and then disintegrates them into powder! Can Pat and her crew solve the mystery of the Scarlet Jaguar before they too are doomed?

This is a fun pastiche based on characters created by the Science Fiction Grandmaster Philip Jose Farmer and brought to life by his colleague and protege Win Scott Eckart. Their collaboration brought us "The Evil in Pemberley House." This thrilling sequel continues the story of Pat and Empire Investigations. If you are a pulp fan and/or a PJF fan, DON'T MISS IT!
