My contribution, a novelette titled "The Wild Huntsman," is a direct sequel to "Is He in Hell?" (in The Worlds of PJF 1) and continues the secret origin of the Wold Newton Family. The tale takes place in the English village of Wold Newton on the momentous day the Wold Newton meteor fell, Dec. 13, 1795, spawning the sprawling family of pulp heroes known as the Wold Newton Family

Those curious about the source of my story title should check out Farmer's Tarzan Alive.
