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.

Pulp Fiction Reviews on HADON, KING OF OPAR

Ron FortiHKOO-1er has reviewed Hadon, King of Opar over at Pulp Fiction Reviews. From the review:

Spinning a non-stop adventure tale, Carey’s pace never lets up and his easy, competent style allows readers to slip into this ancient, magnificent world he has so expertly brought back to life. Burroughs and Farmer would have been proud.

FarmerCon X/PulpFest 2015 recap

I had a tremendous amount of fun attending FarmerCon X/PulpFest 2015 in Columbus, Ohio last month! I started out my trip on August 4, flying out Atlanta, Georgia and heading over to Meteor House headquarters, where I wore out my hand signing books. Then, on Tuesday the 8th, we were off in a van for Columbus to reunite with friends and set up the Meteor House tables at the Hyatt. Both Hadon, King of Opar and the new hardcover edition of Exiles of Kho debuted at the convention, as did the new Restored Edition of Philip José Farmer’s Flight to Opar (a book I am extremely proud to have edited). It was gratifying to see the stacks of these titles shrink, be replenished, and then shrink again in an ongoing cycle over the weekend! The con went by in a merry blur, with author readings, fascinating panels on sundry pulp topics, the FarmerCon and PulpFest dinners, and much late-night mingling while around us whirled the spectacle of an anime convention that was going on at the same hotel.

Without further ado, here are some photos from my trip and the convention.

New Khokarsa books to debut at PulpFest 2015/FarmerCon X

2015-Postcard-FrontHadon, King of Opar, the limited edition hardcover of Exiles of Kho, and the Restored Edition of Philip José Farmer’s Flight to Opar will all debut at PulpFest 2015/FarmerCon X in Columbus, Ohio on August 13–16. I’ll be on hand to sign the books and will be hanging out at the Meteor House table in the Dealers Hall if you’d like to stop by and chat. The books should all begin shipping to customers shortly after PulpFest.

I’d like to take a moment to give a Brobdingnagian THANK YOU everyone who preordered the books and in so doing made them a reality. I am also especially grateful to the good folks at Meteor House and the interested parties who gave their blessing for new works set in Ancient Opar to be published.

Review: The British Fantasy Society on HADON, KING OF OPAR

DaveHKOO-200pix Brzeski has reviewed my forthcoming book, Hadon, King of Opar, over at the British Fantasy Society website. From the review:

It struck me, while reading this volume, that it could be a firm contender for the next ‘Game of Thrones’ style TV show, what with all the political and religious intrigue and epic battle scenes. In keeping with the work of Edgar Rice Burroughs and H. Rider Haggard, who were Farmer’s original inspirations for the series, there are abductions, miraculous escapes, betrayals, alliances and everything else one could wish for…

This book, the author’s best so far, cements his position as quite possibly the best writer currently working in the classic Heroic Fantasy genre.
