HADON, KING OF OPAR: Kindle edition now available

Cover art by Bob Eggleton

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.

FarmerCon XI/PulpFest 2016 recap

Last week I flew out to Columbus, Ohio to attend my fifth consecutive PulpFest, which also played host to FarmerCon XI, the annual Philip José Farmer convention. As usual, I had a blast reconnecting with old friends and meeting new ones. Here are a few photos from the con:

One of the highlights at the con was when Mike Croteau of Meteor House presented me with artist Bob Eggleton’s concept sketch of the cover of BLOOD OF ANCIENT OPAR. Photo courtesy of Danny Adams.

PulpFest2016-6

Another highlight was when Mike ushered me over to a dealer’s table where the original (and uncropped!) cover art for IRONCASTLE by J. H. Rosny (translated and retold by Philip José Farmer) was on display. Sadly, the $10,000 it was going for was out of my price range.
