I'm very pleased to announce that I'll be contributing two bonus pieces to the Titan Books reissue of Philip José Farmer's "secret history" novel The Other Log of Phileas Fogg.
Other Log reveals the hidden events behind Jules Verne's Around the World in Eighty Days. First published in 1973, the book is considered to be one of the first examples of elder steampunk.
The Other Log of Phileas Fogg is currently scheduled for release in May 2012, and is available for pre-order at major outlets such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Editions include trade paperback and digital (Kindle & Nook).
Other Log kicks off Titan's series of Wold Newton novels, to be followed by Time's Last Gift in June 2012. More titles will follow, so stay tuned to Mr. Farmer's official website, and Facebook (Philip Jose Farmer | Win Scott Eckert) for more information.
As for the bonus materials, the new edition will contain the following pieces, exclusive to this edition:
- a new afterword entitled "Only a Coincidence: Phileas Fogg, Philip José Farmer, and the Wold Newton Family"
- a timeline entitled "A Chronology of Major Events Pertinent to The Other Log of Phileas Fogg"
