PHILEAS FOGG AND THE HEART OF OSRA

by Josh Reynolds

THE OTHER LOG OF PHILEAS FOGG was only the beginning!

In 2014, Meteor House published PHILEAS FOGG AND THE WAR OF SHADOWS, by Josh Reynolds, a sequel to THE OTHER LOG OF PHILEAS FOGG. Now the adventures of Phileas Fogg continue in PHILEAS FOGG AND THE HEART OF OSRA, chronicling the further exploits of Jules Verne’s most iconic hero.

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!

BLOOD OF ANCIENT OPAR

by Christopher Paul Carey

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.

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…

On the heels of a devastating invasion by a ruthless pirate lord’s army, the destiny of Khokarsa’s last remaining queendom hangs in the balance. Even as King Hadon leads his forces to victory against the raiders, the conniving oracle of Opar and the high priest of the Flaming God conspire to place themselves upon the ivory throne, launching a civil war that rages throughout the city. But deep beneath Opar, a secret message from Sahhindar, the god of Time, has lain buried for centuries, waiting for Hadon and his daughter La to uncover it. Soon Hadon comes to suspect that La conceals her own mysterious plans, but will they save the city of gold and jewels from utter destruction—or shatter the foundation of Time itself?

Featuring cover art and a frontispiece by Hugo Award-winning artist Bob Eggleton, BLOOD OF ANCIENT OPAR is immediately available for preorder in both a $27 signed limited hardcover edition and a $16 signed limited trade paperback edition.

BLOOD OF ANCIENT OPAR will debut at PulpFest 2016/FarmerCon XI, July 21–24 2016, in Columbus, OH. At PulpFest/FarmerCon, Mr. Carey will sign the complete limited edition run of hardcovers and softcovers. All preordered books will ship to customers in early August 2016.

DAYWORLD: A HOLE IN WEDNESDAY

by Philip José Farmer & Danny Adams

Philip José Farmer’s Dayworld trilogy: DAYWORLD, DAYWORLD REBEL, and DAYWORLD BREAKUP), as well as his short story “The Sliced-Crosswise Only-On-Tuesday World,” imagines a severely 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.

The Dayworld was born from the overpopulation and chaos of the late 21st century: live just one day out of seven, spend the rest in a suspended animation called stoning, and humanity will only need one-seventh of the resources it was consuming on its dying planet. Now, three-and-a-half centuries into this New Era—or two “subjective generations” later—everyone seems blessed with peace and abundance. But one man is about to discover that the seeds of the world’s destruction were deeply planted by the time the Dayworld began.

Jerry Carson never once thought about questioning the New Era. He knew better than most how horrific the world had once been. But when his wife suffers miscarriages that appear to be caused by her stoner, he begins to investigate. By the time he realizes there is an old darkness in the heart of the system that threatens wholesale destruction and genocide, there is no turning back. The New Era itself is saturated with corruption, including the knowledge that an elixir is being developed that would allow powerful conspirators to live forever, and any potential allies may be every bit as sinister. But the only way he, his wife, and the best of his world can survive is to join the forces threatening them all and somehow destroy the evil from within, before falling to the darkness himself...

The novel also features an Introduction by Michael A. Burstein and a Foreword by Paul Spiteri!

A HOLE IN WEDNESDAY will debut at PulpFest 2016/FarmerCon XI, July 21-24 2016, in Columbus, OH.

As with most Meteor House titles, the print run of the Signed (by Danny Adams) Hardcover Limited Edition will be determined by the number of books , preordered. And while the trade paperback is not a limited edition, preordered copies will also by signed by coauthor Danny Adams. To ensure you get a signed copy of either edition, but sure to order no later than June 30th, 2016.
