Robert M. Tilendis over at the Green Man Review has some very nice things to say about The Evil in Pemberley House.

"This one is fun--a good, tight story, enough psychology to keep it interesting, villains galore, characters with eccentricities that only the English can manage gracefully, a rich context, and lots of sex."

Check out the complete review here!

Washington Times review of PEMBERLEY HOUSE...

"When super heroes are conflicted"...

Ron Capshaw at the Washington Times has reviewed The Evil in Pemberley House. Choice quotes include: "It is safe to say that Patricia Clarke Wildman has sufficient baggage before she ever sets foot in the Pemberley House of Jane Austen fame" and "'Pemberley' is clearly a love letter rescued from the grave by co-writer Win Scott Eckert to Farmer's aged fans. It is replete with interrelated heroes and perverted sex scenes.

Check out the complete review here, won't you?

The Evil in Pemberley House - Limited edition

I have a strong feeling that the Limited Edition of Subterranean Press' The Evil in Pemberley House (which includes a Wold Newton Family tree in the endsheets and a chapbook packed with bonus materials) is very close to selling out.

If anyone out there hasn't gotten a copy, and intends to, now is probably a very good time.

I'm just sayin'.

THE EVIL IN PEMBERLEY HOUSE - author copies have arrived...

... and wow!

Upon removing the dust jacket, I see that the regular trade HC is bound in blue cloth, while the limited HC is bound in purple cloth. Very nice.
For those readers who purchase the regular trade HC, that version has no Wold Newton Family tree chart on the end sheets. I've made the chart available at The Evil in Pemberley House website. Just scroll down the right navigation bar to THE EVIL IN PEMBERLEY HOUSE - FAMILY TREE. Note that this version of the chart is Spoiler-Free; it does not give away any of the novel's mysteries.

The Limited Edition HC has this very same Spoiler-Free family tree chart in the book's end sheets. The Chapbook that comes with the Limited Edition has the Spoilers version of the family tree on the inside front and back covers. I will not be making that version of the family tree chart available electronically, at least not for some time--you'll need to buy the Limited Edition for that. :-) From what I can tell, copies of the Limited Edition are going very quickly.

All in all, I'm incredibly pleased, and feel very lucky. It's a beautiful package all around.

PEMBERLEY HOUSE - Key historical scene reenacted & shipping update!

Subterranean Press has announced that The Evil in Pemberley House is at the printer and expected to ship in 2-3 weeks.

That seems a good excuse as any to post these pictures of a scene of critical historical significance to the events in Pemberley House, the murder of Charles Augustus Milverton. The murderess is a major character in Pemberley House. Pictures taken at the Sherlock Holmes Museum, 221B Baker Street, London, 25 July 2009.
