Just a note of thanks to everyone who is kindly following along here. 2008 was a good year for fans of Philip Jose Farmer, Wold-Newton, pulps, etc., with more to come in 2009 and 2010...
Philip Jose Farmer's VENUS ON THE HALF-SHELL AND OTHERS, including Phil's Holmes-Tarzan crossover, THE ADVENTURE OF THE PEERLESS PEER:
4 new issues of FARMERPHILE: THE MAGAZINE OF PHILIP JOSE FARMER:

Announcement of the completion of 2 new Philip Jose Farmer novels, both of which take place in Phil's Wold Newton Universe:
...And the sale of one of those novels, THE EVIL IN PEMBERLEY HOUSE, to Subterranean Press (with fingers crossed that the other novel, THE SONG OF KWASIN completed by Christopher Paul Carey, will sell soon!)
The release of Moonstone Books' THE AVENGER CHRONICLES; some of the stories have Wold-Newtonian crossover references, particularly Matthew Baugh's , and mine, which has a heavy Farmerian influence.
FARMERPHILE no. 15 (coming in January, http://www.pjfarmer.com/farmerphile.htm )
THE OTHER IN THE MIRROR by Philip Jose Farmer (Subterranean Press, early 2009)
Other short story anthologies in which I'll have stories; there will definitely be crossovers and one, if it gets approved, will have a heavy Wold-Newtonian background. These have not been announced yet, so I can't say anything further now. Stay tuned.
CROSSOVERS: A SECRET CHRONOLOGY OF THE WORLD (MonkeyBrain Books)
THE EVIL IN PEMBERLEY HOUSE (Subterranean Press; 2010 release date is conjecture, stay tuned)
