VENUS ON THE HALF-SHELL by Philip José Farmer

My comps of the Titan Books edition of Philip José Farmer's hilarious novel Venus on the Half-Shell arrived today. This edition has a lot of extras and the final package came together really well.

It's a tad bittersweet, as this is the final Farmer book that Titan is releasing, but its been a good run, twelve Farmer books in three years. Farmer hasn't been this much in print in a couple of decades, and I'm very proud to have been a part of the initiative.

And I know that there's more Farmer coming from the good folks at Meteor House, as well as more international editions in the works from publishers such as Atlantis Verlag.

Here are the Venus extras. It's available now for preorder, so why not hop on over to Amazon or B&N and send the Titan series out with a bang?

  • Introduction by Philip José Farmer: "Why and How I Became Kilgore Trout"
  • Preface by Philip José Farmer: "The Obscure Life and Hard Times of Kilgore Trout"
  • Afterword by Philip José Farmer: "Jonathan Swift Somers III: Cosmic Traveller in a Wheelchair"
  • Afterword by Jonathan Swift Somers III: "Trout Masque Rectifier: Now It Can Be Told Differently: The Truth About Trout"
  • Afterword by Christopher Paul Carey: "More Than Real Life Itself"
