Up From the House of Meteor

Jul 13, 2020 by

Like everyone else, the folks at Meteor House — the organizers of the annual FarmerCon — are devastated that PulpFest 2020 has been canceled. However, we very much agree with the decision made by the PulpFest organizing committee to emphasize the safety and well-being of convention attendees and postpone this year’s PulpFest until August 2021.

Every year since 2011, Meteor House has debuted our new books at PulpFest. From THE WORLDS OF PHILIP JOSÉ FARMER series to novellas like THE SCARLET JAGUAR and MAN OF WAR, novels such as THE SONG OF KWASIN and DAYWORLD: A HOLE IN WEDNESDAY, collections like THE BEST OF FARMERPHILE and THE PHILIP JOSÉ CENTENNIAL COLLECTION, and even reference books such as CROSSOVERS EXPANDED Volumes 1 and 2, they’ve all premiered at PulpFest.

While Meteor House always takes preorders for our latest books through our website, every year we have copies of our books available at PulpFest for walk-up sales. We want all of our PulpFest friends to know that while we are sure to have trade paperback versions of our new books — UP FROM THE BOTTOMLESS PIT and A ROUGH KNIGHT FOR THE QUEEN (both written by Philip José Farmer) — available in 2021, we may not have copies of the signed hardcover limited edition of A ROUGH KNIGHT FOR THE QUEEN by the summer of 2021. The print run for the four-signature hardcover is only 150 copies. With more than half of them already spoken for, PulpFest fans of Meteor House may want to consider placing a preorder, before they’ve all been allocated. To preorder the signed hardcover limited edition of A ROUGH KNIGHT FOR THE QUEEN, please click here.

Meteor House also has package deal discounts if you want to get both UP FROM THE BOTTOMLESS PIT and A ROUGH KNIGHT FOR THE QUEEN. Please click here is you’d like to take advantage of one of these special offers available from Meteor House.

The FarmerCon organizing committee of Meteor House wishes you all a safe and peaceful 2020. We look forward to seeing you in August 2021 for next year’s PulpFest and FarmerCon XVI.

(Meteor House is very much looking forward to PulpFest 2021 and FarmerCon XVI, scheduled for August 18 – 21, 2021 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Pittsburgh – Cranberry. We hope to see you in Mars, Pennsylvania for these two AMAZING conventions.

In the meantime, we hope you’ll fill your craving for the work of the late Philip José Farmer by considering our two newest books from the Science Fiction Grand Master — UP FROM THE BOTTOMLESS PIT, featuring cover art by Keith Howell, and A ROUGH KNIGHT FOR THE QUEEN, featuring cover art by Charles Berlin.)
