In this episode I review Honey West & T.H.E. Cat: A Girl and Her Cat written by Win Scott Eckert and Matthew Baugh. The novella is published by Moonstone Books and is currently available in a limited edition hardcover, with a softcover due out on June 10, 2014. I also include audio from Win’s panel on the novella from Pulpfest 2013, where he gives an overview of the characters, reads from the prologue and first chapter and does an audience Q&A.
The story sees Honey West hired by the beautiful Doctor Fang to recover a stolen vaccine and a pocket watch that belongs to her grandfather, Shan Ming Fu. Honey takes the case, but soon realizes there is more going on than what she was told. International espionage agencies from both sides of the law are involved, and she enlists the aide of her friend T.H.E. Cat in order to recover the items. There are crossovers and references a plenty that fans of the pulps and 60’s television shows won’t want to miss.
