Tales of the Shadowmen 4: Lords of Terror

For immediate release:

"Tales of the Shadowmen 4: Lords of Terror has been released by Black Coat Press. It features the talents of contributing sf, mystery, and horror writers Kim Newman, Brian Stableford, John Shirley, John Peel, and Jean-Marc Lofficier, as well as newer genre writers familiar to followers of Philip Jose Farmer's Wold Newton Universe, such as Matthew Baugh, Jess Nevins, Bill Cunningham, Rick Lai, and Win Scott Eckert.

Join us again for this fourth volume and meet the most villainous cast to ever grace the pages of popular literature, spreading evil from the foggy underworld of London to the seedy taverns of Mars, and from the flowery banks of the Seine to New York's grimy Hell Kitchen...

Fantômas, Countess Cagliostro, Victor Frankenstein, Irma Vep, Count Orlock, Erik, Madame Atomos, the Black Coats, Charles Foster Kane, and even Great Cthulhu himself... Dare meet--the Lords of Terror!"

My story pits Madame Atomos, female Fu Manchu-like mastermind of Japanese descent, against the agents of U.N.C.L.E.

A letter Philip Jose Farmer once wrote to The Baker Street Journal indicates he was a fan of, or at least interested in the show The Man From U.N.C.L.E. We don't know the contents of the BSJ articles Phil was defending in his letter, but it makes sense that he was interested in the show, since several of the original U.N.C.L.E. novels written by the late David McDaniel have strong ties to the Sherlockian canon, and also contain crossovers galore with popular characters such as Fu Manchu, The Saint, The Avengers, Miss Marple, and Sherlock Holmes himself. (See my Wold Newton Universe Crossover Chronology for the complete listings).

I hope you'll check it out.
