Limited Editions set to sell out soon!

Uncategorized

In mid-July we set the print runs for the following Signed Limited Edition books based on the number of preorders we had received. We always print more books than we get preorders for, so we have stock to sell at PulpFest/FarmerCon, and then a small number to sell online afterward.

But, the preorders have continued in a steady stream since we set the print runs, and there is a chance we could sell out of some of these books at PulpFest/FarmerCon, which  is just one week away! So to insure you can get a copy of any of these books, get your order in now.

  • Hadon, King of Opar  by Christopher Paul Carey – Signed Limited Edition Hardcover (150 copies) – Signed Limited Edition Trade Paperback (125 copies)
  • Airship Hunters by Jim Beard & Duane Spurlock – Signed Limited Edition Trade Paperback (150 copies)
  • Flight to Opar (Restored Edition) by Philip José Farmer – Signed Limited Edition Hardcover (125 copies – signed by the editor)

The Evil in Pemberley House Available Again!

Uncategorized

Cover art by Glen Orbik

- Reblogged from Win Scott Eckert . . .

After the summer 2014 publication of the Meteor House edition of The Evil in Pemberley House, the Duchess of Greystoke—Pat Wildman herself!—wrote to me pointing out three minor errors, text which was missing from the original hardcover edition. This was mortifying, to say the least.

Due to major life events occurring at the same time–a relocation to another state for a new job–I was unable to give this situation the attention it deserved until recently. Consequently, I and Meteor House decided to stop selling the edition until we had a solid plan for correcting the errors.

I’m pleased to say that the book is now back on sale!

Meteor House will include an errata sheet, signed by me, with every new order of this first printing. For customers who already bought the book, Meteor House will include the errata sheet in the shipment of any of their latest books. For anyone not covered by this plan, Meteor House will make separate arrangements to send the signed errata sheet.

I and Meteor House regret the error. The corrections will be incorporated into the book’s second printing and the ebook. And yes, we are actively planning to release the ebook soon (for both Kindle and Nook)!

Again, we apologize for the error and appreciate your loyal readership.

Viva Pat Wildman!

Announcing Airship Hunters by Jim Beard & Duane Spurlock!

Uncategorized

Cover art by M. S. Corley

Meteor House is extremely pleased to announce the publication of a brand new novel by Jim Beard & Duane Spurlock!

Does Airship Hunters get to the bottom of the nearly forgotten mystery of 19th-century UFOs?

It is 1897 and the skies are haunted by mysterious airships and unfathomable secrets.

Tasked with hunting down these strange vehicles of the air and determining their origin and intent, two U.S. government agents toil under unusual conditions to supply their shadowy superiors with information. But that information proves to be as elusive as the airships themselves.

Ride with Agents Valiantine and Cabot across the Midwest as they encounter reports of strange lights, phantom soldiers, unreliable witnesses, and the ultimate source of their airborne prey.

They are the Airship Hunters, and they cannot be waylaid from their path to uncover the greatest mystery of them all.

As with Meteor House’s original novellas, Airship Hunters will be published as a Signed Limited Edition trade paperback. And just like with our novellas, your name will appear on the acknowledgments page in the same order you preorder—as long as you preorder by July 1st 2015.

As always, 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 Hadon, King of Opar and a new hardcover edition of Exiles of Kho!

Uncategorized

We’re thrilled to announce that Philip José Farmer’s Ancient Opar returns this summer in Hadon, King of Opar, a brand-new novella set in the lost civilization of Khokarsa written by Christopher Paul Carey—with stunning artwork by Bob Eggleton! The new novella, authorized by Farmer’s estate, resumes Hadon’s storyline fourteen years after the events of Farmer and Carey’s The Song of Kwasin (we’ll have some good news about that novel later this year!), and should be considered Volume 4 in the Khokarsa series. A sequel by Carey, Blood of Ancient Opar, is already in the works, and having read the thrill-ride of Hadon, King of Opar, we couldn’t be more pleased.

Opar, legendary city of gold and fabulous treasures, once shined as the most precious jewel of Khokarsa, a mighty empire whose magnificent cities stretched across the shores of ancient Africa’s vast inland seas. But a horrific cataclysm has shattered the other great metropolises of the land and the bountiful seas have slowly begun to drain. Now golden Opar stands alone—the last bastion of a dying civilization, battling to survive in a hostile and rapidly changing world.

When a mysterious enemy strikes from out of the wilds, King Hadon must lead his golden city against the most perilous threat it has ever faced. As he embarks on a mission to confront the danger, Hadon runs headlong into a maze of plots and intrigues lurking in the ages-old tunnels deep beneath the city. Soon he discovers the ancient war between the followers of the goddess Kho and the sun god Resu never truly ended. Unless Hadon can rally his most daunting enemies to fight by his side and rescue his daughter La from the clutches of a ruthless pirate lord, the city of gold and jewels will soon lie in ruins, the long-held prophecy of its greatness hurled into oblivion…

On top of the big news about Hadon, King of Opar, we’re happy to meet reader demand for a new hardcover edition of Exiles of Kho by Christopher Paul Carey!

Since then, a large number of our readers have asked for the novella in hardcover, so we’re happy to announce this new Signed Limited Edition Hardcover of Exiles of Kho, with brand-new cover art by Mark Wheatley!

All copies will be signed by Christopher Paul Carey. The print-run will be determined by the number of preorders, so reserve your copy of the Signed Limited Edition Hardcover of Exiles of Kho now!

Flight to Opar – Restored Edition!

Uncategorized

Today we’re excited to announce the first of three Ancient Opar titles we’ll be putting up for preorder on our website in the coming weeks!

This summer Meteor House will release the never-before-published Restored Edition of Philip José Farmer’s classic novel Flight to Opar, the second volume of his acclaimed Khokarsa series.

This new edition—available as both an affordable trade paperback and a collectible limited edition hardcover—features nearly 4,000 words that were cut from Farmer’s original manuscript when the novel was published in 1976. Meteor House’s Restored Edition is the first and only publication of the novel ever to include the excised material, which encompasses long passages of narrative, dialogue, and rich world-building details on Ancient Opar and the civilization of Khokarsa that readers have never previously been able to enjoy—until now.

Meteor House’s Restored Edition of Flight to Opar also features cover art and a frontispiece by Hugo Award-winning artist Bob Eggleton as well as rare and previously unpublished bonus material, including:

  • A Preface to the Restored Edition by Christopher Paul Carey (coauthor with Philip José Farmer of The Song of Kwasin, the third novel in the Khokarsa series)*
  • A brand-new introduction by S. M. Stirling (New York Times bestselling author of the Change series)*
  • The Khokarsan Language by Philip José Farmer**
  • Khokarsan Glossary by Philip José Farmer and Christopher Paul Carey
  • A Guide to Khokarsa by Christopher Paul Carey
  • Early Notes on the Khokarsa Series by Philip José Farmer*
  • Original Outline to Flight to Opar by Philip José Farmer*
  • Cross-section Map of Opar by Philip José Farmer*

* Never before published.
** Only previously available in an out-of-print and extremely hard-to-find signed limited edition.

The hardcover limited edition will be signed by editor Christopher Paul Carey.

And while the trade paperback edition will not have a short print run, if you preorder a copy before publication, it will also be signed by editor Christopher Paul Carey.

The Scarlet Jaguar is now available on Nook!

Uncategorized

In the “better late than never” department, we’re pleased to announce that Win Scott Eckert’s The Scarlet Jaguar  (second in the Pat Wildman series, and winner of the 2014 New Pulp Award Winner for Best Novella) is now available on Nook.

We know that we’ve been a bit behind the curve here at Meteor House in terms of getting ebooks out. While a few books in our back catalog are not on deck for ebook release due to various issues, we are committed to catching up with Kindle and Nook releases of as many books as we can in the coming weeks and months, so stay tuned!

Back to Pat Wildman: we know that it seems odd that book #2 is out in ebook before the first in the series, The Evil in Pemberley House. This is due purely to the fact that we secured the rights to reissue Pemberley House after we released The Scarlet Jaguar. The print edition of Pemberley House is currently out of stock, but we should have more copies in house in short order, followed by an ebook edition (both Kindle and Nook). And yes, there will be more Pat Wildman adventures after that!

In the meantime, head on over to our ebooks page and pick up the new Nook edition (or the Kindle edition, for that matter!) of The Scarlet Jaguar!
