Tales of the Wold Newton Universe

A collection of Wold Newton-inspired short stories by Farmerphiles, experts, and the Grand Master of SF himself.

Titan Books' Wold Newton Anthology, Tales of the Wold Newton Universe, will be released on October 8, 2013. Edited by Win Scott Eckert and Christopher Paul Carey, the book collects, for the first time ever in one volume, Philip José Farmer's Wold Newton short stories. The volume also includes tales by other writers.

The Introduction by Eckert (coauthor with Farmer of the Wold Newton novel The Evil in Pemberley House) and Carey (coauthor with Farmer of the Khokarsa novel The Song of Kwasin) provides an overview of Farmer's Wold Newton Family and Mythos. In addition, the editors provide brief introductions to the stories themselves, explaining why each entry is a Wold Newton tale.

Tales of the Wold Newton Universe is available for preorder at AmazonAmazonUK, and B&N. As with all the Farmer books from Titan, there will also be an eBook version.
