Crossover Cover: Big Trouble in Merrie Olde England


Jack Burton and friends recently had a battle aboard a submarine with Petty Officer Talbot, a werewolf. An MI-5 agent named Pellinor shows Margo Litzenberger and Eddie Lee portraits of his illustrious predecessors, one of whom is a man so unhappy his lips are curved almost into a snarl, and who wears a black jacket with white piping and a large badge of a penny-farthing bicycle. Felix “Wart” Kingfisher says the Wing Kong blackmailed the British authorities to leave them alone and go after their rivals, such as the Si-Fan and the Red Dragon Tong. Petty Officer Talbot must be a relative of Larry Talbot from the movie The Wolf Man and its sequels. It has been well-established that lycanthropy runs in the Talbot family. The agent in the black jacket is Number 6 from the classic TV series The Prisoner. The Si-Fan is Dr. Fu Manchu’s criminal organization in Sax Rohmer’s novels. The Red Dragon Tong is from the Hammer film The Terror of the Tongs

This novel is one of hundreds of crossovers covered in my book Crossovers Expanded: A Secret Chronology of the World Volume 3, which will be published by Meteor House! Like its predecessors, this volume is an AUTHORIZED companion to Win Scott Eckert's Crossovers: A Secret Chronology of the World Volumes 1 and 2!
