Here are three . . . no five . . . no seven . . . yes that’s it, seven important things you should now know:

  1. If you are kicking yourself for not getting a signed limited edition hardcover while you could, a couple of specialty book dealers out there still have a few copies in stock.
  2. There are still signed (but not limited edition) paperback copies available for sale.
  3. If you bought the signed limited edition hardcover of Flight to Opar, but still have not gotten around to buying the signed limited edition hardcover of The Song of Kwasin to go with it, well, you see what can happen with no warning. Get your copy while you can.
  4. As of this moment there is only ONE copy of the signed limited edition hardcover of Hadon, King of Opar left before it also goes out of print (see #1 about book dealers having copies).  Too late, it’s sold out too!
  5. If you already have a signed limited edition hardcover of Hadon, King of Opar, but have not yet ordered a signed limited edition hardcover of Blood of Ancient Opar, see #3.
  6. As of right now there are less than ten signed limited edition hardcovers and paperbacks of Phileas Fogg and the War of Shadows left (and some of those are in the UK). Unlike the books mentioned above, dealers do not have extra copies of this book.
  7. If you already have a signed limited edition hardcover (or paperback for that matter) of Phileas Fogg and the War of Shadows, but have not yet ordered a signed limited edition hardcover or paperback of Phileas Fogg and the Heart of Osra, see #3.

This ends today’s public service announcement.

Dayworld: A Hole in Wednesday Update

Uncategorized

A Hole in Wednesday

by Philip José Farmer & Danny Adams

AHIWhcA few weeks ago we announced a new addition to one of Philip José Farmer’s classic series: Dayworld: A Hole in Wednesday by Philip José Farmer and Danny Adams.

Today we’re excited to let you know that both the hardcover and paperback editions of the novel will include an Introduction by Michael A. Burstein and a Foreword by Paul Spiteri!

Michael A. Burstein has been a Hugo and Nebula finalist multiple times for his short fiction, much of which can be found in his book I Remember the Future. He is glad that Dayworld isn’t real, as he could never get the hang of Thursdays and suspects he’d be trapped in one forever.

Paul Spiteri was co-editor of Farmerphile: The Magazine of Philip José Farmer throughout its fifteen issue run (2005-2009) and in 2006 edited Pearls from Peoria (Subterranean Press). In 2008 he co-wrote, with Philip José Farmer, the short story “Getting Ready to Write” (Farmerphile #13), an experience he would gladly repeat for each day of the week.

Don’t forget, the hardcover signed limited edition of Dayworld: A Hole in Wednesday will have a print run determined by the number of books preordered. Get your order in soon to guarantee you get a copy before they sell out!

A Brand-New Phileas Fogg Adventure!

Phileas Fogg and the Heart of Osra

by Josh Reynolds

In 2014, Meteor House published Phileas Fogg and the War of Shadows, by Josh Reynolds, a sequel to Philip Jose Farmer’s The Other Log of Phileas Fogg. The Lovecraft eZine review said “I think fans of Philip Jose Farmer, crossover fiction, Science Fiction, French Pulp Fiction, and the Cthulhu Mythos will really enjoy this novella.” The British Fantasy Society said, “It’s a classic pulp adventure story, fast paced and engrossing.

Now the adventures of Phileas Fogg continue in Phileas Fogg and the Heart of Osra, a brand-new sequel novella to Phileas Fogg and the War of Shadows, chronicling the further exploits of Jules Verne’s most iconic hero.

1889. The war of shadows is over, but a new and more deadly conflict has begun in the Central European country of Ruritania. A conflict which threatens to consume the few remaining survivors of the millennia-old struggle between Eridaneans and Capelleans, including Phileas Fogg. Drawn to the city of Streslau by a mysterious letter, Fogg finds himself accused of a crime he didn’t commit and caught between old allies and new enemies in a struggle for survival. On the run and aided only by the unpredictable Count of Hentzau, Fogg must exert every iota of his famed intellect in order to unravel the mystery of the Heart of Osra – or face the utter annihilation of Eridaneans and Capelleans alike!

Available in both a Signed Limited Edition Hardcover and a Signed Limited Edition Trade Paperback edition. As always, the print run with our Limited Editions is determined by the number of preorders. That is why preorderers names appear in the book on the acknowledgments pageyou make this book happen!

The paperback is $16 (plus shipping) and the hardcover is $27 (plus shipping). Or, you can buy both together for $38 (save $5 off the pair, and even more with combined shipping)!

Announcing — Blood of Ancient Opar

Uncategorized

Meteor House is very pleased to announce
a new novella by Christopher Paul Carey
set in Philip José Farmer’s Khokarsa series

Blood of Ancient Opar

 

Cover art by Bob Eggleton

Philip José Farmer’s Khokarsa series records the history of a lost civilization that thrived in the heart of ancient Africa twelve thousand years ago at the twilight of the last ice age. The novels Hadon of Ancient Opar, Flight to Opar, and The Song of Kwasin told the story of the heroes Hadon of Opar and Kwasin of Dythbeth, as they battled a power-hungry tyrant who sought to overthrow the beneficent order of mother earth goddess Kho and raise up the mandate of baleful sun god Resu in its place.

In 2015, Meteor House published Hadon, King of Opar, a new Khokarsa novella by Christopher Paul Carey—Farmer’s coauthor on The Song of Kwasin, and the author of the Khokarsa series prequel Exiles of Kho—about which the British Fantasy Society said, “This book, the author’s best so far, cements [Carey’s] position as quite possibly the best writer currently working in the classic heroic fantasy genre.”

Now the epic saga of Khokarsa continues in Blood of Ancient Opar, a brand-new sequel novella to Hadon, King of Opar by Christopher Paul Carey, chronicling Hadon’s further adventures in the fallen empire’s last remaining queendom. Using Farmer’s own notes, Carey at last fills in the missing history of a civilization lost to the mists of time…

On the heels of a devastating invasion by a ruthless pirate lord’s army, the destiny of Khokarsa’s last remaining queendom hangs in the balance. Even as King Hadon leads his forces to victory against the raiders, the conniving oracle of Opar and the high priest of the Flaming God conspire to place themselves upon the ivory throne, launching a civil war that rages throughout the city. But deep beneath Opar, a secret message from Sahhindar, the god of Time, has lain buried for centuries, waiting for Hadon and his daughter La to uncover it. Soon Hadon comes to suspect that La conceals her own mysterious plans, but will they save the city of gold and jewels from utter destruction—or shatter the foundation of Time itself?

Featuring cover art and a frontispiece by Hugo Award-winning artist Bob Eggleton, Blood of Ancient Opar is immediately available for preorder in both a $27 signed limited hardcover edition and a $16 signed limited trade paperback edition.

Blood of Ancient Opar will debut at PulpFest 2016/FarmerCon XI, July 21–24 2016, in Columbus, OH. At PulpFest/FarmerCon, Mr. Carey will sign the complete limited edition run of hardcovers and softcovers. All preordered books will ship to customers in early August 2016.

As with all of our Signed Limited Edition Novellas, your name will appear on the acknowledgments page in the same order you preorder—as long as you preorder by June 15th 2016.

Also note, the print run will be determined by the number of preorders received. Not many copies beyond those reserved will be printed, another reason to get your order in today!

Announcing — An All-New Dayworld Novel!

A Hole in Wednesday

by Philip José Farmer & Danny Adams

Philip José Farmer’s Dayworld trilogy, as well as his short story “The Sliced-Crosswise Only-On-Tuesday World,” imagines a severely overcrowded future that cures the problem by “stoning” six-sevenths of the population each day.

Farmer began a prequel Dayworld novel, A Hole in Wednesday, but did not complete it, and Meteor House is pleased that Danny Adams has picked up the mantle. Set some time before the events in the original trilogy, the novel nonetheless has direct links to the acclaimed series, exploring the developing world and antecedent characters who vigorously challenge the life in which they find themselves trapped.

The Dayworld was born from the overpopulation and chaos of the late 21st century: live just one day out of seven, spend the rest in a suspended animation called stoning, and humanity will only need one-seventh of the resources it was consuming on its dying planet. Now, three-and-a-half centuries into this New Era—or two “subjective generations” later—everyone seems blessed with peace and abundance. But one man is about to discover that the seeds of the world’s destruction were deeply planted by the time the Dayworld began.

Jerry Carson never once thought about questioning the New Era. He knew better than most how horrific the world had once been. But when his wife suffers miscarriages that appear to be caused by her stoner, he begins to investigate. By the time he realizes there is an old darkness in the heart of the system that threatens wholesale destruction and genocide, there is no turning back. The New Era itself is saturated with corruption, including the knowledge that an elixir is being developed that would allow powerful conspirators to live forever, and any potential allies may be every bit as sinister. But the only way he, his wife, and the best of his world can survive is to join the forces threatening them all and somehow destroy the evil from within, before falling to the darkness himself. . .

A Hole in Wednesday will debut at PulpFest 2016/FarmerCon XI, July 21-24 2016, in Columbus, OH.

As with most Meteor House titles, the print run of the Signed (by Danny Adams) Hardcover Limited Edition will be determined by the number of books preordered. And while the trade paperback is not a limited edition, preordered copies will also by signed by coauthor Danny Adams. To ensure you get a signed copy of either edition, but sure to order no later than June 30th, 2016.
