We’re back from FarmerCon XII for a little over a week and now we’re finally caught up, having mailed out over 400 preordered books.

Here is a pleasant surprise for everyone—Mark Wheatley not only came to PulpFest and proved to be one of the coolest people we ever hung out with—but he also signed every copy of Man of War by Heidi Ruby Miller (for which he did the cover). So, at no extra charge, you can get a copy of the book signed by both the author and the cover artist! While supplies last, of course.

Man of War: A Two Hawks Adventure – by Heidi Ruby Miller

Man of War: A Two Hawks Adventure
by Heidi Ruby Miller

MOW-HB

Cover Art by Mark Wheatley

In Philip José Farmer’s novel Two Hawks from Earth, Native American pilot Roger Two Hawks flew through his first “gate” while on a bombing run over Romania during World War II. The gate brought him to Earth 2, a world where the Americas never existed. Since then he has continued to fight battles on Earth after Earth, each more strange than the next.

In Heidi Ruby Miller’s short story “Dakota’s Gate” (Worlds of Philip José Farmer 3), set on Earth 3, North America never advanced past stone tools and rock shelters. But that’s where Two Hawks met another gate traveler, Dakota Cummings. It was Dakota, a woman turned friend and lover, who pulled him through a gate to her Earth, the most alien and deadly of all.

Earth 4. Two hundred years in the future. A war thirty-six thousand feet underwater. Two Hawks must draw upon all he’s learned during his gate travels in order to survive war between technologically advanced humans and their far-future hybrid cousins. This time more than just his and Dakota’s lives are at stake—the fate of an entire world is in his hands.

Featuring cover art by Mark Wheatley, a foreword by Christopher Paul Carey, and the short story “Dakota’s Gate” as a prelude, Man of War is a 24,500-word novella full of the action and adventure you’d expect of Philip José Farmer’s Roger Two Hawks.

Available in both a Signed Limited Edition Hardcover and a Signed Limited Edition Trade Paperback. As always, the print run with our Limited Editions is determined by the number of preorders. That’s why the names of those who preorder the book appear on its acknowledgments pageyou make this book happen! (As long as you preorder by June 1st 2017.)

Man of War will be published simultaneously in both hardcover and paperback signed limited editions!

  • Buy the Signed Limited Edition Trade Paperback for $16 (+shipping)
  • Buy the Signed Limited Edition Hardcover for $27 (+shipping)
  • Buy both together for $38—save $5 off the pair (+shipping)

And, as an added bonus, if you preorder before June 1st, you will also receive a FREE ebook copy of Heidi Ruby Miller’s novel, Ambasadora.

If everyone told you love wasn’t real, would you still be willing to die for it?Ambasadora LR

Sara Mendoza and Sean Cryer are.

In their multi-partner, caste-ruled society, love and jealousy are considered emotional fallacies, nothing more than fleeting moods and sentiments biased by hormones. Relationships and conceptions in this world obsessed with celebrity, beauty, and power are based on DNA and lineages…or should be. But not everyone believes in the ruling traditions of the all-powerful Embassy. A quiet rebellion prowls the dark underground of this shiny world where techno-militants calling themselves fraggers grow in numbers and bravado. The Embassy intends to silence the fragger movement before the heresy of equality spreads throughout the system.

Sara Mendoza is part of the Embassy’s plan. Captured, tortured, and falsely accused of treason, she is given a chance to win back her freedom. She only needs to charm information from one of the fragger leaders, then kill him. But by the time she figures out the Embassy’s intel is flawed and that Sean Cryer is her true mark, she’s already in love with him.

Sean knows why Sara is on his ship from the start, but as a lonely, anti-social doser, he doesn’t value his life, only his ideology within the fragger organization. Against his better judgment, he becomes her protector, each day caring more about a future he was always afraid to hope for.

Again, the print run will be determined by the number of preorders received. Not many copies beyond those reserved will be printed—another reason to place your order today!

The Adventure of the Fallen Stone

Being the First Part of the Account of
The Dynamics of a Meteor

By John H. Watson, M.D.

Edited by Win Scott Eckert

 

Philip José Farmer’s The Adventure of the Peerless Peer WAS ONLY THE BEGINNING!Fallen Stone cover

In 2016, Meteor House published its first limited edition chapbook, Win Scott Eckert’s Being an Account of the Delay at Green River, Wyoming, of Phileas Fogg, World Traveler, or, The Masked Man Meets an English Gentleman.

Now, Meteor House is proud to introduce its second chapbook, The Adventure of the Fallen Stone: Being the First Part of the Account of The Dynamics of a Meteor, chronicling Sherlock Holmes’ ongoing efforts to combat the hellish hun, as recounted by the Great Detective’s Boswell, Dr. John H. Watson, and edited for publication by Win Scott Eckert!

April 1917. Sherlock Holmes has returned to Mother England following his 1916 African adventure. In retreat at his country cottage, tending to his bees, Holmes’ peaceful solitude (or perhaps deadly boredom) is shattered by a murder at a local inn…

Thrust back into the shadowy fray of Great War espionage, the detective’s brother Mycroft sets Holmes and Watson on the perilous trail of a cunning German mastermind.

Join Holmes, Watson, sleuths Harry Dickson and J. Saxon Blake—intriguingly, both master detectives with digs on Baker Street, who greatly resemble Holmes in demeanor, speech, and aspect—and the alluring Isis Vanderhoek as they race across England in pursuit of a master villain and a stolen flower with remarkable medicinal properties.

WHAT is the mysterious lotus vitae?

HOW is it related to a meteor that fell in Yorkshire in 1795?

WILL Holmes and company success in preventing the nefarious Von Bork’s latest scheme?

Meteor House is proud to present our second limited edition chapbook, a 24 page, 8,650 word adventure signed by Win Scott Eckert. As with most of our books, the print run will be determined by the number of books preordered. Only a small number will be printed beyond the preorders, so to ensure you don’t miss out, be sure to preorder no later than March 10th!

Why the short preorder period? Win will sign these chapbooks at an event on March 25th at Fleur Fine Books in Port Neches TX. We can’t guarantee there will be any copies left by the time we get to FarmerCon XII (at PulpFest) in July.

Announcing — The Best of Farmerphile!

BOFboththumbs

Today would have been Philip José Farmer’s 99th birthday and we’re celebrating with our first book of 2017, THE BEST OF FARMERPHILE!

Farmerphile: The Magazine of Philip José Farmer was a quarterly fanzine that ran fifteen issues from July 2005 to January 2009. Thanks to Philip José Farmer’s “Magic Filing Cabinet,”  Farmerphile published—for the first time anywhere—short stories (mostly not science fiction), excerpts, articles, speeches, and letters written by Farmer.

Farmerphile also contained articles and appreciations from Farmer’s fans and from his fellow science fiction authors, from critiques of his work to stories of personal encounters, and everything between. Winnowing all this content down to one “Best of” collection has been extremely difficult—in fact, we’re not quite finished—and we’re already over 570 pages.

Take a look a this table of contents so far.

There will be a Trade Paperback Edition, and a Hardcover Limited Edition (as always the print run of the limited edition will be determined by the number of books preordered). And of course a package deal where you can buy both editions at a discount!  While the hardcover is not “officially” a signed limited edition, when the book debuts at PulpFest/FarmerCon XII in late July 2017, we will get as many contributors on hand as possible to sign it.

Celebrate Phil’s birthday with us by preordering today!

Ebook Price Drop on Stringent Strange

Uncategorized

The Abnormalities of Stringent Strange by Rhys Hughes ebook is now only $2.99!

SS-frontsThe world has never seen an aviator quite like Stringent Strange. Half man, half ape, half badly added fraction, he can fly anything with wings and many things without. Under the mentorship of the unorthodox genius Professor Tobias Crinkle, our hairy hero soon gets much more than he bargains for when he finds himself up against a fiendish Nazi plot to invade and conquer America before the war has even begun!

Fortunately there exists an invention that can help him fight back against the warlike scoundrels, but the consequences of using it will propel him into even greater peril, into an alternative future where the themes and tropes of early magazine science fiction are menacingly real and coexist in perfect disharmony! Into a bracing reality where the only weapons he can rely on are the three special abnormalities he was born with…

Come and join Stringent Strange in a stupendous, mysterious, inventive adventure set in a far-flung time When Pulps Collide!

(Note: while the Signed Numbered Limited Edition is SOLD OUT — the trade edition is available directly from amazon.)
