Tarzan and the Dark Heart of Time enters the Edgar Rice Burroughs Universe

Uncategorized

TZ-TDHOT-HB-72DPIWe were so thrilled when Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc. announced at the ERB panel at San Diego Comic-Con on July 19, 2019 that certain previously published authorized Burroughs novels by other writers—specifically Philip José Farmer’s Tarzan and the Dark Heart of Time and Fritz Leiber’s Tarzan and the Valley of Gold—are considered official canonical novels in terms of the Edgar Rice Burroughs Universe™ (ERBU), that we immediately asked ERB, Inc. if we could add the ERBU logo to our next printings of Tarzan and the Dark Heart of Time.

With an enthusiastic “yes” from ERB, Inc. in response, we quickly ordered a new run of hardcovers which we’ll have on hand at PulpFest 2019 / FarmerCon XIV this week—August 15 through 18—in Cranberry (Pittsburgh) PA.

Softcovers won’t have the new logo until we sell through our current stock, and ebooks will be updated with the new logo shortly after PulpFest. A new first hardcover edition of Leiber’s novel is also just out, published by ERB, Inc. and Christopher Paul Carey, Director of Publishing at ERB, Inc. will have copies on hand at PulpFest.

Hunt the Avenger – by Win Scott Eckert!

Uncategorized

Avenger - Hunt the Avenger SoftCover Front HiResMeteor House is so excited about this new novel from Win Scott Eckert, that we’re promoting it—even though we didn’t publish it. Instead it’s being published by our friends at Moonstone Books.

What’s so cool about this novel? Let’s let Win Scott Eckert tell you himself:

My first published Avenger story, “Death and the Countess,” featured what I thought at the time was a throwaway line mentioning a prior adventure with the Domino Lady. I went on to pen two more Avenger tales that actually featured team-ups with the saucy pulp heroine.

“Death and the Countess,” The Avenger Chronicles (2008)
“Happy Death Men,” The Avenger: The Justice, Inc. Files (2011)
“According to Plan of a One-Eyed Trickster,” The Avenger: Roaring Heart of the Crucible (2013)

Avenger - Hunt the Avenger HardCover Front HiResI was very happy with how the trilogy turned out, and yet it was clear that the three tales were meant to be read together as a whole—not separated by several years as each anthology was subsequently released. A proper reading required the stories to be collected in one volume.

Too, the trilogy always felt a bit imbalanced, with socialite Ellen Patrick—the Domino Lady—only making her “on camera” debut in the second tale. With that in mind, I set out to write the prequel to “Death and Countess,” showing the actual first meeting between Richard Benson and Ellen Patrick. This took a lot of careful planning and review of the timeline (excerpted at the conclusion of Hunt the Avenger) to ensure the continuity lined up—including featuring the black-haired, normal-skinned Benson, as he appeared in the final twelve original pulp novels and Ron Goulart’s twelve Avenger novels from the 1970s (as well as an additional short story by Goulart in 2008’s The Avenger Chronicles).

Throwing caution to the wind, I also decided to remedy the dangling plotlines left by prior scribe Goulart. I penned a fifth tale to wrap it all up in a bow, with the two new stories matching the word count of the original three tales.

The resulting pentalogy should be read together as one saga…Hunt the Avenger!

I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed the journey!

Announcing Greatheart Silver and Other Pulp Heroes!

Uncategorized

Meteor House is proud to announce another fantastic collection of stories by Philip José Farmer!

Farmer had a life-long love affair with the pulps he read in his youth. They influenced nearly everything he wrote, but in the 1970s he paid special tribute to them with several stories. Greatheart Silver and Other Pulp Heroes collects these stories for the first time in hardcover! This collection also features an introduction by college professor and pulp historian, Garyn G. Roberts, Ph.D., and artwork (coming soon) by Keith Howell!

Table of Contents:

Introduction
Greatheart Silver
The Return of Greatheart Silver
Greatheart Silver in the First Command
The Grant Robeson Papers
Savage Shadow
Skinburn

The first three stories: “Greatheart Silver,” “The Return of Greatheart Silver,” and “Greatheart Silver in the First Command,” originally appeared in Byron Priess’ Weird Heroes series and have been collected before in the paperback, Greatheart Silver. These stories are Philip José Farmer at his most irreverent.

The next two items, “The Grant Robeson Papers,” and “Savage Shadow” also appeared in Weird Heroes, and set up a fantastic premise that was never fulfilled and will leave you wanting more.

The final story, “Skinburn” appeared in the Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction and is the most scifi of these stories, while still giving a nod to the pulps.

Greatheart Silver and Other Pulp Heroes will debut at FarmerCon XIV this coming August, but if you preorder the book now, we’re offering an “Early Bird Special” discount of $5 off! So you only pay $27 + shipping for this fascinating collection of Farmer paying homage to many of his literary heroes!

 

Side note: Because we’re offering this discount now, our last Bi-weekly Sale — $5 off the paperback edition of Man of War by Heidi Ruby Miller — is being held over. Our next new Bi-weekly Sale will begin April 13th.

Bi-weekly Sale – Dayworld: A Hole in Wednesday

Uncategorized

StackedOur first Bi-weekly Sale — any volume of The Worlds of Philip José Farmer series for only $15 — was a huge success. We sold even more copies than we anticipated (and not just because we let it run a little longer than two weeks…).

For our second Bi-weekly sale, which will run from February 16th through March 1st, we are offering, for the first time ever, Dealer Discounts (40% off!) to the public for Dayworld: A Hole in Wednesday! That means you can buy:

  • The $25 Trade Paperback edition for only $15 (plus shipping).
  • The $35 Hardcover Limited edition for only $21 (plus shipping).
  • Or both for only $36 (plus shipping).

Dayworld: A Hole in Wednesday by Philip José Farmer and Danny Adams is a prequel to Farmer’s Dayworld series. Farmer started this novel sometime in the late 1970’s or early 1980’s and Adams completed it in 2016.

Note that the hardcover is a Limited Edition of only 200 copies signed by Danny Adams, cover artist Keith Howell and Paul Spiteri (who wrote the Foreword). AND all of the copies of the trade paperback we have on hand are also signed by all three! Further note that we have limited quantities of these books available.

This novel is a fun read, as Publisher’s Weekly said, “Adams’s greatest triumph here is in capturing Farmer’s 1980s prose style, creating a compelling narrative that could easily have been crafted alongside the previous three novels.”

Don’t miss this chance to grab this novel at a huge discount!
