Do you know who the "& more" might include in the Partners in Crime book? If Ellen Patrick makes an appearance, I'll certainly grab a copy. (Hmmm, grabbing the Domino Lady. Nice thought, that.)

How soon until these are available on Amazon in the UK?

TAF: I have no idea, sorry. I freelance write for a few of Moonstone's anthologies, I am not a part of their business. And the mysteries of Amazon are beyond me. I'm just passing on the promotional info they sent to me.

Ray: I don't know that either, sorry. Agreed on grabbing Ellen. ;-)

Thanks, anyway. Just have to keep practicing my Google Fu :D

Unless they added her in at the twelfth hour (which is very possible), I don't think that the Domino Lady is sashaying inside CJ's book. Could be wrong, though.

However, you absolutely will find Ellen Patrick and her masked and gowned alter-ego in the graphic novel I'm currently writing, which features most of Moonstone's pulpish characters, including: Sherlock Holmes, The Phantom, Kolchak, Buckaroo, The Spider, Airboy, Captain Action, the Cisco Kid, and the Green Hornet...!

Think of it as kind of a Justice League of the Pulps.

Getting all the different licensors to agree to what I'm attempting to do has been a...challenge to least the least.

I am having a lot of fun with it, though.

TAF: no worries, sorry I couldn't help more.

Martin: can't wait for your mega-crossover!

FYI, Ellen gets name-checked in my Avenger story, as well as THE EVIL IN PEMBERLEY HOUSE. :-)

Martin Powell said...

Excellent ideas, Win.

Stands to reason that Ellen and Pat would know each other.

Turns out that the Domino Lady and Nita Van Sloan are pals, too.

Win Scott Eckert said...

Very, very cool. :-)

Martin Powell said...

For me the fact that all these characters are somehow connected (and many of them even related!) is the real fun of working in this genre.

Thanks to the great Philip Joe Farmer, of course.
