Countdown to the new Philip José Farmer books from Titan! (post #6)

New Info Revealed Today!

My introduction to Lord of the Trees has been submitted and is entitled "A Tale of Two Universes." Christopher Paul Carey has contributed two pieces to the new edition of Hadon of Ancient Opar: an introduction entitled "The Literary Archaeology of Khokarsa" and an afterword, "A Guide to Khokarsa."


I'm pleased to share the cover to the new edition of the Doc Caliban novel The Mad Goblin!

They were known simply as the Nine - grim and ancient rulers who thirty thousand years ago had discovered the key to eternal life and ever since had secretly held the world in thrall.

Once, Doc Caliban had been their servant and had shared their secrets. Now, appalled by their tyranny, he has turned against them, daring to challenge their centuries-old supremacy. Together with two henchmen whose superhuman skills match his own, Caliban sets out on the trail of the deadliest of the Nine: the mad goblin Iwaldi, the very incarnation of evil...
