FARMERPHILE: The Magazine of Philip José Farmer

Farmerphile is a quarterly magazine completely dedicated to works by and about Philip José Farmer. It features the unpublished novel Up from the Bottomless Pit, a suspense-thriller about the ultimate disaster in the oil industry, serialized over the first ten issues. These ten issues will also include other unpublished stories, speeches and letters by Farmer himself, as well as articles about the Grand Master and his work from his fans and peers. Farmerphile is fabulously illustrated by such talented artists as Jason Robert Bell, Charles Berlin, Keith Howell, Karl Kauffman, and Chuck Loridans.

Issue No. 6 - October 2006 – Shipping soon!

The October 2006 issue of Farmerphile features Philip José Farmer’s previously unpublished short story "Keep Your Mouth Shut" and the sixth exciting installment of Up from the Bottomless Pit. Also spotlighted is an insightful look at Farmer's "writings in bronze" by Doc Savage author and expert Will Murray. Carrying on the theme of Murray’s essay, Danny Adams (co-author of The City Beyond Play), Win Scott Eckert (editor of and contributor to Myths for the Modern Age: Philip José Farmer’s Wold Newton Universe), and Christopher Paul Carey (contributor to Myths for the Modern Age: Philip José Farmer’s Wold Newton Universe) all pay tribute in this issue to Farmer’s Doc Savage-related work; and Bette Farmer shares behind the scenes reminiscences from the Farmers' visit to the home of Lester Dent, the first "Kenneth Robeson." Also included is an essay on collecting PJF worldwide by Rias Nuninga (webmaster of The Philip José Farmer International Bibliography) and a Bibliophile column on Farmer’s only mainstream novel, Fire and the Night, by Ramble House publisher Fender Tucker.
