In this weeks episode I will be discussing “Exiles of Kho” by Christopher Paul Carey. It is a new pulp novella set in Philip Jose Farmer’s Wold Newton Universe published by Meteor House Press. Exiles of Kho was previously only available via a limited edition trade, however it has just been released in eBook format for $3.99. I also include audio with Christopher Paul Carey from Pulpfest 2012 at the end of the episode.
Exiles of Kho stars the hero priestess Lupoeth and also features a certain grey eyed archer God named Sahhindar. Join the two of them as they fulfill their destinies on a quest into the jungles of Ancient Africa.
In this special episode I discuss the recently released Tales of the Wold Newton Universe collection from Titan Books. Edited by Win Scott Eckert and Christopher Paul Carey, this is a collection of Wold Newton fiction by Philip Jose Farmer and those following in his footsteps. I highly recommend it. There are references made within this collection to the Shadow, Doc Savage, King Kong, H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos, Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Tarzan, Sherlock Holmes and A.J. Raffles to name a few.
Michael Croteau gives a history of Farmercon. Win Scott Eckert gives an overview of the Wold Newton Family and the expanded Wold Newton Universe. Rick Lai discusses the Shadow in the Wold Newton Universe. Art Sippo discusses Philip Jose Farmer’s “A Feast Unknown”.
