Win Scott Eckert — HUNT THE AVENGER

Aug 11, 2019 by

PulpFest 2019 is pleased to announce that Win Scott Eckert will read from his newest book, HUNT THE AVENGER, on Saturday, August 17 at 2:30 PM.

2019 Munsey Award nominee Win Scott Eckert launched the first Wold Newton website, The Wold Newton Universe in 1997. Over the next twenty-two years, he has written or co-written novels and short stories featuring characters such as Philip José Farmer’s Patricia Wildman, cult favorites Honey West and T. H. E. Cat, and classic properties such as The Green Hornet, Zorro, The Scarlet Pimpernel, The Phantom, The Lone Ranger, The Green Ghost, Captain Midnight, Phileas Fogg, Doc Ardan, Sexton Blake, and Sherlock Holmes. His latest novel is HUNT THE AVENGER which pairs The Avenger and The Domino Lady for a new pulp adventure.

Win is the editor of and a contributor to MYTHS FOR THE MODERN AGE: PHILIP JOSÉ FARMER’S WOLD NEWTON UNIVERSE — a 2007 Locus Awards finalist — and co-editor with Christopher Paul Carey of TALES OF THE WOLD NEWTON UNIVERSE. He was co-editor  with Paul Spiteri of FARMERPHILE from 2007–2009. His massive timeline of crossover stories — CROSSOVERS: A SECRET CHRONOLOGY OF THE WORLD— was published by Black Coat Press in 2010. A tireless chronicler of Philip José Farmer’s idiosyncratic view of a broad shared universe, Eckert has shown remarkable fidelity to Farmer’s vision and serves as an inspiration to the many new pulp writers and pulp fiction scholars who have followed in his wake. Like Farmer, Win is one of the leading “Children of the Pulps.”

Win’s Saturday afternoon reading immediately follows his 1:30 PM book signing. After the author reading, please join Win as he takes part in the panel, Contemporary Pulp: Writing Genre Fiction alongside Will Murray, Christopher Paul Carey, John C. Bruening, Craig McDonald, and moderator William Patrick Maynard. Saturday evening at 7:45 PM, Win joins Christopher Paul Carey, Garyn G. Roberts, Jason Aiken, and moderator Paul Spiteri for FarmerCon XIV: Farmer of the Pulps: A Harvest of Influences.

Next year, Win will contribute TARZAN: BATTLE FOR PELLUCIDAR to the new Edgar Rice Burroughs Universe series of canonical novels coming from Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc. He will take part in Friday afternoon’s panel, Entering the Edgar Rice Burroughs Universe with Matt Betts, Heidi Ruby Miller, and moderator Christopher Paul Carey. Win is also working on a third Pat Wildman adventure and completing Philip José Farmer’s manuscript of THE MONSTER ON HOLD, the fourth novel in the Secrets of the Nine series.

Win’s appearance takes the place of the previously announced reading by Christopher Ryan, author of Alex Simmon’s Blackjack and The Mallory and Gunner Series. Chris, unfortunately, had to change his plans at the last minute and will not be able to attend this summer’s convention.
