Greatheart Silver and Other Pulp Heroes — Ebook Now Available!


Front Cover thumbPhilip José 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 by Keith Howell!

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.

And now you can get the ebook version for only $2.99!

Tarzan and the Dark Heart of Time – Now in Audio!



Meteor House is very excited to let you know that Oasis Audio, through a deal with Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc., has released Philip José Farmer’s Tarzan and the Dark Heart of Time as an audiobook! We couldn’t have been more pleased when Christopher Paul Carey, Meteor House author and Director of Publishing at ERB, Inc., broke the news to us.

Clocking in at 9 hours and 39 minutes, this audiobook will cover the trip to grandma’s for the holidays, and the drive back home!

And check it out, it looks like narrator Ben Dooley is doing the complete Tarzan series, from Tarzan of the Apes to Tarzan and the Valley of Gold, and everything in between!

It would be an interesting experiment for someone to listen to the Tarzan books in order, up through Tarzan the Untamed, then listen to Dark Heart of Time, then continue on with Tarzan the Terrible. We bet with the same narrator reading the books Phil’s novel would feel even more like you were reading Burroughs.
