Interview with Danny Adams: Dayworld
14 Jun 2016
 
The Dayworld novel A Hole in Wednesday was announced earlier. Publisher Meteor House will present this at FarmerCon XI at the end of July!

Philip José Farmer started this novel, and his grand-nephew Danny Adams completed the novel.
The novel is a prequel to the Dayworld series. What is it about?

In the interview we ask Danny Adams this and several other questions.
Cover of "Phileas Fogg and the Heart of Osra"
22 May 2016
 
Meteor House revealed this week the cover of the novella Phileas Fogg and the Heart of Osra, written by Josh Reynolds. It wasn't yet ready with the announcement of the novella last month.
The beautiful cover illustration is done by Amar Djouad.


See the previous entry for more information about the book.
I enjoyed the first Phileas Fogg novella by Josh Reynolds, Phileas Fogg and the War of Shadows, very much! I immediately ordered copies of the hardcover, as well of the paperback, after the announcement of this second one.
It will be a hot summer this year with the three new books from Meteor House.

Do not wait too long to preorder the 'Limited, signed hardcover edition' for $27, or the 'Limited, signed trade paperback edition' for $16.
No information yet when the novella will be released, but my guess is that it will be released at FarmerCon in July.
Phileas Fogg and the Heart of Osra
19 Apr 2016
 
And yet another new announcement from Meteor House! With the publication of the novella Phileas Fogg and the Heart of Osra, written by Josh Reynolds.
It is a sequel to Phileas Fogg and the War of Shadows by Reynolds, which was in turn a sequel of Farmer's The Other Log of Phileas Fogg.

Meteor House: «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!»

You can preorder the 'Limited, signed hardcover edition' for $27, and the 'Limited, signed trade paperback edition' for $16.
No information yet when the novella will be released.

A new Opar/Khokarsa novella!
10 Apr 2016
 
A new announvement from Meteor House, the publication of the novella Blood of Ancient Opar, written by Christopher Paul Carey. The novella is part of the Opar/Khokarsa series.
The books will have a great cover by Bob Eggleton.

Meteor House: «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…»

You can preorder the 'Limited, signed hardcover edition' for $27, and 'Limited, signed trade paperback edition' for $16.
The books will be released at FarmerCon XI, July 21-24 2016.
Dayworld: A Hole in Wednesday
18 Mar 2016
 
Meteor House announced the publication of a new Dayworld novel, A Hole in Wednesday, written by Philip José Farmer & Danny Adams.

Meteor House: «Philip José Farmer’s Dayworld trilogy, as well as his short story “The Sliced-Crosswise Only-On-Tuesday World,” imagines an 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.».

You can preorder the 'Signed Hardcover Limited Edition' for $35, and 'Trade Paperback Edition' for $25.
The books will be released at FarmerCon XI, July 21-24 2016.
The Green Odyssey received
18 Mar 2016
 
I have received the new edition of The Green Odyssey, which Positronic Publishing released on January 20, 2016.

This Print-on-Demand book's price is $7.99 via Amazon or Barnes & Noble. It is also available as an eBook from Amazon for only $0.96.

It is a nice and handsome trade paperback with a cover illustration by Catmando.
The publication has been added on the book page.

Human Spirit, Beetle Spirit
15 Mar 2016
 
The second magazine I received from Fred Fischer (USA) is a copy of Aboriginal Science Fiction, Issue Nos. 41 & 42, of Fall (July) 1983.

John Gregory Betancourt wrote a Riverworld story, "Human Spirit, Beetle Spirit", for the anthology Quest to Riverworld (1993). A month before the book publication the story appeared also in the above issue of Aboriginal Science Fiction.

Betancourt writes in his "Author's Notes": «When I was asked to write a story for an anthology of new stories set in Philip José Farmer's Riverworld, at first I was thrilled and excited. An then I was scared.»
This was with his first Riverworld story, "The Merry Men of Riverworld", which he wrote for Tales of Riverworld (1992).
Both stories are included on the page Shared Worlds.

Thank you Fred for both magazines!
French academic journal
13 Mar 2016
 
This week I received from Fred Fischer (USA) two magazines.
One of them is the French academic journal Les Cahiers du CERLI Nº 12 of January 1986.

It contains an essay by Jean Marigny, "Art et artifice dans Riverworld de Philip José Farmer". In this essay Marigny gives his opinion about the Riverworld series, if the series is 'art' or 'artificial'.
His conclusion is very positive. If you need a reason to buy the book below, you can read it in this essay.

A huge hardcover: Le Monde du Fleuve
6 Mar 2016
 
Philip José Farmer's work is still popular in France. Especially the novels in the Riverworld series. They have been kept in print during all these years, by publishers Robert Laffont and Le Livre de Poche.

This time publisher Mnémos took all five novels of the Riverworld series, and the novella "Riverworld", and published them together in one volume, the omnibus Le Monde du Fleuve. A huge and beautiful hardcover book, with 1273 pages.



The price of the omnibus is only €35,00. That's no money for this book, but you have to read French...
Would love to see an omnibus edition like this in the US!
The Green Odyssey
6 Mar 2016
 
Positronic Publishing released on January 20, 2016 a new edition of Philip José Farmer's first novel, The Green Odyssey.

This novel is in the public domain, free from publishing rights, and can be obtained as a free eBook.
Positronic Publishing's print-on-demand book costs $7.99 via Amazon or Barnes&Noble.

Last month I received the information from Fred Fischer (USA) about this publication. I ordered a copy, but I'm still waiting for it. Delivery has been delayed.
