What th--
I know The Batman crossed paths with Sherlock Holmes in that anniversary issue of Detective Comics, but what was this story about? Is that really the Great Detective?

Win Scott Eckert said...

Yes, it is Holmes. it's one of those Power Records from the '70s. You'll read all about it in CROSSOVERS. :-)

You know... I actually STILL have that record! Creepy scarecrows and Sherlock Holmes on one side, Gorilla Grodd on the other. Too cool, man. I REALLY miss Power Records. Thanks, Win!

My pleasure, John. You know, there is a Power Records yahoo group which has a lot of posts and links to mp3s of the records, etc., and a couple Power Records websites. So I've gotten a lot of the Power Records stories on my iPod, from Star Trek, to Conan, to Captain America, Spider-ma, the Hulk, and Fantastic Four. Good stuff. :-)

Here is the yahoo group address:

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/powerrecords/

From there, the Links section has links to Power Records and OTR websites, and many of the message posts in the archive have download links.

Best,

Win

Hello. My name is Dylan and I'm an aspiring Wold Newton scholar. I emailed you a couple times but I don't remember you ever writing back. I'm working on connecting Dale B. Cooper into the Wold Newton Universe and would like some advise on footnoting and such. I've got the basic theory and I would also like to run it buy you at some point.

Win Scott Eckert said...

There are crossover connections already for TWIN PEAKS, linking the show into the Wold Newton Universe. If you're writing an essay linking Cooper into the Wold Newton Family, go for it. My email address is listed on this webpage. I'll be happy to read your essay after you send it, but cannot guarantee an extraordinarily fast turnaround, due to "real life" and my writing commitments.

All the best,

-Win

Thanks.

I think it's only fair to warn you that I'm also making connections to Lost. I think adding Lost to the Wold Newton Universe may also explain a few of the issues raised in Rick Lai's article "The Secret History of Captain Nemo."

Win Scott Eckert said...

I consider myself warned, although I am unsure why fairness calls for a warning. There are already crossover connections placing LOST in the WNU, including my own short story "The Eye of Oran" published in TALES OF THE SHADOWMEN 2 (Black Coat Press, 2006). All the crossover connections, including TWIN PEAKS and LOST, are documented and will be published in my book CROSSOVERS; A SECRET CHRONOLOGY OF THE WORLD (MonkeyBrain Books, 2010).

There is a lot of information to be had, and informative conversation, at the Wold Newton Family discussion group:
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Wold_Newton_Family/

I suggest you join, politely introduce yourself, and search the archives for previous discussion threads for information in which you are interested. With respect, please don't be surprised if someone else has beaten you to the punch on incorporating your favorite shows, books, stories, etc. We cover a lot of pop culture territory between us, and yer are certainly far from the first to mention TWIN PEAKS or LOST.

Looking forward to seeing you at the yahoo discussion forum, as as such I won't be carrying on this conversation further here, as it is off-topic for this blog thread.

Great connection, Win! I do remember that record and actually got it out from my local library. Sadly all records are gone from there now, not that I own a record anymore at this point, lol.
