Cover reveal for my Tarzan Worldscape comic

While I wasn’t looking, Dynamite went ahead and revealed the cover art for the comic I scripted, Pathfinder Worldscape: Forest of Nightmares, which features Tarzan and La of Opar up against the ancient Roman demigods Romulus and Remus. The comic was made available only through the Pathfinder Worldscape Humble Bundle, which has unfortunately ended already, though the comic is due out in late March for those who donated to the Humble Bundle campaign. I’ll update this post with information about the cover artist when I have it. In the meantime, I highly recommend checking out the original Pathfinder Worldscape series by Erik Mona, to which “Forest of Nightmares” serves as a prequel.

Pathfinder Worldscape Humble Bundle: Exclusive Tarzan comic by Christopher Paul Carey and more!

I’m excited to announce that I’ve written a Pathfinder Worldscape comic featuring Tarzan‘s first adventure in the mysterious Worldscape, a demiplane “where the greatest warriors of Hyboria, Barsoom, Golarion and Earth clash in an ancient battle of life and death.” My comic is titled “Forest of Nightmares,” in which Tarzan follows the missing La of Opar into the Worldscape and must confront the Roman demigods Romulus and Remus. “Forest of Nightmares” is one of four special issue comics available exclusively at the $25 tier of the just-announced Pathfinder Worldscape Humble Bundle. And the best part about it is that it’s for charity! The Pathfinder Worldscape Humble Bundle benefits Camden’s Concert via the Tides Foundation; the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund; or, if you’d like, a third charity of your choice via the PayPal Giving Fund. Below is a description of my comic and more details about the Pathfinder Worldscape Humble Bundle, which runs until January 25, 2017.

Opar, Intégrale: French-language Khokarsa series omnibus

In November 2016, Éditions Mnémos will be publishing Opar, Intégrale, a French-language omnibus encompassing Hadon of Ancient Opar, Flight to Opar, and The Song of Kwasin. This is the first French collection of the original Khokarsa/Ancient Opar trilogy, and also marks the first translation into French of The Song of Kwasin, which I coauthored with Philip Jose Farmer. I don’t yet know who the cover artist is but I love the artwork!*


Opar, Intégrale is currently available for preorder from Amazon France and direct from the publisher.

Update: According to the Internet Speculative Fiction Database, the cover artist is Grant Regan and the translator of The Song of Kwasin (Le Geste de Kwasin) is Laura Dupra. The translator of Hadon of Ancient Opar (Hadon, fils de l’antique Opar) and Flight to Opar (Fuite à Opar) is George H. Gallet.

HADON, KING OF OPAR is out of print

HKOO-1Both the hardcover and paperback editions of Hadon, King of Opar are now out of print at the publisher. The good news is that it will soon be available for the first time in an ebook edition—stay tuned for details!

Meanwhile, copies of Blood of Ancient Opar are still available from Meteor House at the time of this posting. It’s also a limited edition (like the sold-out Hadon, King of Opar and Exiles of Kho were), so I recommend picking it up now while you still can if you want a print copy.

French translation of “Caesar’s Children”

I’m pleased to announce that my novelette “Caesar’s Children: A Tale of Pluritopia,” about a world of utopias on the verge of cataclysmic war, is now available in a French language translation in Jean-Marc Lofficier’s anthology Les Compagnons de l’Ombre 19 from Rivière Blanche.
