CHAPBOOK-COVER-JPEGJules Verne’s Around the World in Eighty Days

Philip José Farmer’s The Other Log of Phileas Fogg

THEY WERE ONLY THE BEGINNING!

In 2014, Meteor House published Phileas Fogg and the War of Shadows by Josh Reynolds, a sequel to Philip José Farmer’s The Other Log of Phileas Fogg. 2016 brings us Reynolds’ Phileas Fogg and the Heart of Osra, furthering the exploits of Jules Verne’s most iconic hero.

Now, join Meteor House as Win Scott Eckert reveals a hitherto unknown chapter in Fogg’s celebrated round-the-world journey!

December 1872. Phileas Fogg, the lovely Aouda, and his faithful manservant Passepartout, are nearing the end of their frenzied eighty-day dash around the world…

One wouldn’t think, as Fogg and Co. speed across North America on the transcontinental railroad, that they would have time to befriend a mysterious masked lawman, match wits with a long-lived criminal mastermind and his tong, and battle anti-Chinese sentiment in Old West coal mining communities.

One would be wrong.

Win Scott Eckert pulls back the veil on the previously untold tale of Mr. Phileas Fogg’s fateful encounter with the legendary masked rider of the plains and his faithful companion—an episode suppressed (with good reason!) by M. Verne himself from the final publication of his classic Around the World in Eighty Days.

Meteor House is proud to present our first limited edition chapbook, a 28 page, 9,800 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 order no later than July 5th.

And here is an added bonus: if you have preordered any of our forthcoming titles, this chapbook has free shipping (and will be sent to you, along with your other book(s), after FarmerCon in early August).

So, if you have already purchased any of the following:

Crossovers Expanded, Volume 1

Crossovers Expanded, Volume 2

DAYWORLD A Hole in Wednesday

Blood of Ancient Opar

Phileas Fogg and the Heart of Osra

You can purchase Being an Account of the Delay at Green River, Wyoming, of Phileas Fogg, World Traveler, or, The Masked Man Meets an English Gentleman for only $8.

But, if you have NOT ordered any of the above listed books, additional postage costs will apply.

We have moved the final preorder date up from June 15th to June 12th. In order to have your name appear on the acknowledgments page of Phileas Fogg and the Heart of Osra by Josh Reynolds, you must preorder no later than Sunday June 12th.

This is so we can coordinate printing the books, meeting up with Josh to sign them, then shipping them from the UK to the US in time for FarmerCon.

Also, don’t forget the deadline to preorder Blood of Ancient Opar by Christopher Paul Carey—and have your name appear on the acknowledgements page—is Wednesday June 15th.

And while we’re not publishing preorderers names in the hardcover signed limited edition of the new Dayworld novel, A Hole in Wednesday by Philip José Farmer and Danny Adams, if you want to guarantee you can get a signed copy before they sell out, you also need to preorder no later than June 15th.

And while they are not signed limited editions, if you want to get a signed copy of Crossovers Expanded, Volumes 1 & 2, by Sean Lee Levin . . . you get the idea, preorder now!

FarmerCon is now just over six weeks away!
