BOOKS: Khokarsa and Ancient Opar Series Re-release

BOOKS

FROM CHRISTOPHER PAUL CAREY AND METEOR HOUSE:


Entire Khokarsa / Ancient Opar Series Back in Print!



"With the announcement that a new standalone edition of The Song of Kwasin will be released in December 2015, the entire Khokarsa/Ancient Opar series is now available to be ordered. Titan Books put out a new edition of the first volume in the series, Hadon of Ancient Opar, in 2013 (which includes my introduction and “Guide to Khokarsa”) before Meteor House picked up the torch and released the second volume, Flight to Opar (in a new restored edition), and the fourth volume, Hadon, King of Opar (my continuation of the series based on Farmer’s notes) this past summer. The aforementioned publication by Meteor House of the third volume, The Song of Kwasin, brings  the entire main series back into print.

Philip José Farmer’s prelude to the series, Time’s Last Gift, is also in print and available, and although the new limited edition hardcover of my prelude novella Exiles of Kho is only a couple copies away from being out of print, an affordable ebook edition is available for both Kindle and NOOK readers. Further, “Kwasin and the Bear God,” my novella with Farmer set during the events of the third novel of the main series, will be included as a bonus piece in the new Meteor House edition of The Song of Kwasin (though if you can’t wait for that, it can also be found in the anthologies The Worlds of Philip José  Farmer 2: Of Dust and Soul and Tales of the Wold Newton Universe). Lastly, my short story, “A Kick in the Side,” set during the events of Flight to Opar, may be found in the anthology The Worlds of Philip José Farmer 1: Protean Dimensions.

In regard to the continuing series, I plan to write the next volume in the main series, Blood of Ancient Opar, as soon as I wrap up my obligations for the new edition of The Song of Kwasin. Blood of Ancient Opar is expected to debut in the summer of 2016."
