Uncategorized

Meteor House’s Bi-weekly Sale!

less than perfectOur fifth Bi-weekly sale is a case of bad news for us being great news for you. Sometimes books get damaged in shipping and we’re going to start offering them at a deep discount for those of you who are only interested in reading books but not collecting them (weird right?).

Our first “Less than Perfect” sale features hardcover copies of The Best of Farmerphile for $15 off the cover price.

You read that right, $15 off —
reducing the price from $40 to only $25!
(plus shipping)

The picture to the right shows a typical book, with bumping to the head and tail of the spine, and dust jacket wrinkling. Some dust jackets may have small tears in them, but all books are 100% readable.

So this is it, your chance to snag a reading copy of The Best of Farmerphile at an unbeatable price.

Do note that quantities of “Less than Perfect” copies are limited.

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!

A Starred Review from Publisher’s Weekly!

reviews-star-19b The Philip José Farmer Centennial Collection

hardcover

hardcover

Edited by Michael Croteau. Meteor, $50 (940p) ISBN 978-1-945427-12-1

 

This prodigious centennial celebration of SFWA Grand Master Farmer (1918–2009) is a superb retrospective of his seven decades as a writer. It features abundant stories that became his signature works, including ‘The Lovers’ and ‘Mother’ … [Editor] Croteau has organized Farmer’s work by decade, providing pithy overviews of his output and allowing Farmer to comment on it himself through reprints of autobiographical essays. This book is an exemplary tribute to one of science fiction’s postwar luminaries. Agent: Chris Lotts, Lotts Agency. (Aug.)

Blood of Ancient Opar — Ebook Now Available!

Blood of Ancient Opar
Ebook Now Available!
blood-pb-final-hires-smaller

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 OparFlight 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…
