BOOK: The Best of Farmerphile

BOOKS

I am very honored to have my essay about Philip José Farmer's Tongues of the Moon selected for this collection. You can preorder it from Meteor House now in two editions: trade paperback (shown with a collage of the covers making up Farmer's portrait) and hardcover (shown with Farmer as Sherlock Holmes). The full table of contents is available if you scroll down on the preorder page.

ABOUT
Farmerphile: The Magazine of Philip José Farmer was a quarterly fanzine that ran fifteen issues from July 2005 to January 2009. Michael Croteau served as Publisher for all fifteen issues; Christopher Paul Carey and Paul Spiteri coedited the first ten issues, while Spiteri and Win Scott Eckert coedited the last five. Thanks to the generosity of Philip José Farmer and his “Magic Filing Cabinet,” Farmerphile published—for the first time anywhere—short stories (mostly not science fiction), excerpts, articles, speeches, and letters written by Farmer. It even serialized the novel Up from the Bottomless Pit (not included in this collection, but forthcoming from Meteor House).

Farmerphile also contained articles and appreciations from Farmer’s fans and from his fellow science fiction authors, from critiques of his work to stories of personal encounters, and everything between. A complete list of the original contents of all fifteen issues can be found here.
