I'd guess "complete and unabridged" is a complete lie at least 30% of the time it appeared on a paperback, more for an Ace Double.

You'll appreciate reading the original, longer version, I suspect.

haha...yes probably to both your suggestions...they're not the Ace doubles,you know those little ones?(slightly smaller than an average paperback)...I have 'The Radio Beasts' by Farley and 'Tama,Princess of Mercury' and some Kline and others in those editions...they put out some really cool stuff in that series,even if they were cut to pieces!


How about The Planeteers by John W. Campbell.

It's got a very good Star Wars vib for a 30's pulp sci-fi story.

I have the Tama stories in their original serial form, and I am relatively certain that the Ace reprints are complete editions.

I _think_ (but don't know for sure) that the Farley book is complete, too.

I would like to take this opportunity to conduct my quarterly reiteration of the fact that no-one has reprinted the complete Hounds of Tindalos since Jove's Arkham reprint back in 1978.

We will definitely get to some Lost World material shortly. Beyond The Ship of Ishtar, nearly all of A. Merritt's books can be characterized as such.

Also, I'm dying to read DIAN OF THE LOST LAND, mostly for the incredible Virgil Finlay opening spread illustration.

I’ve not yet read anything by Edison Marshall, but I found a book of his at a library sale, it’s titled “The Land of Forgotten Men”.

Judging by the title I thought it was a ‘lost world’ story, but the library categorized it as a ‘western’.
Can anyone tell me if it’s SF or not before I read it?

Thanks in advance,

Sorry I don't know but I'd think it was lost world by the guy who wrote 'Dian' and a fantasy classic called 'Ogden's Strange Story', even though he has a very Western-writer type name,so an even bet I suppose. The title reminded me of ERB's 'Land of Hidden Men',which I don't have but sounds pretty cool. On the subject of ERB,I saw on a Fantastic Adventures cover or something,a novel called,'Goddess of Fire'. Has this got an alternative title or has it just never been published in book form? I've never heard of it.(which doesn't mean much) Also there's an A.Merritt story/novel? called 'People of The Pit'. Anyone know that? I want it! What about 'The Fox Woman' by Merritt? Here's a lost world one,'The Valley of Silent Men' by E.Charles Vivian.

"Goddess of Fire" was a serialized installment from what would become the novel Escape on Venus.

I'm betting that Vance has been brought up at some point in here, though the search field doesn't bring anything to light. I had a chance to sneak a look at Big Planet recently, read the first chapter and its one that I want to get. If it can be a Planet Stories book, so much the better. Any Vance on the horizon?

Paizo Employee Publisher, Chief Creative Officer

Big Planet is my favorite science fiction book, period.

Jack Vance's agent won't return our emails or phone calls.

A big call. I love all of Jack's stuff! Favourites are probably Nopalgarth,The Blue World,All the Dying Earth ones(including the 80's ones)and the Lyonesse trilogy.

I’ve never heard of this before but it might be something to look into:

Flash Gordon Strange Adventure Magazine (My first link, hope it works)

That or perhaps some of the novels mentioned right after it might be nice to include in the Planet Stories line. After all, Flash Gordon is probably the most famous sci-fi character of the early twentieth century.

Marshall's Land of Forgotten Men is a pioneer adventure set in Alaska, not a fantasy. If you want to give Marshall a try, Paizo has copies of The Pagan King for sale for $1. It's a fantasy-historical Arthurian novel, more heavily leaning toward the historical. For $1 you can't go wrong. It's part of the Pendragon fiction imprint.

Happy to help. There are quite a few gems in the Pendragon fiction line, both reprints of classics and originals. (By way of full disclosure, I was the exec. editor for the line.) Paizo has most or all of them available for $1 each. For you speedy readers, pick a couple up for the downtime between PS releases. ;)

I would really like to see a collection of Lin Carter's Thongor stories or L. Sprague De Camp's Pusadian series.

Andoran

This may have been mentioned before but I would like to request Gardner A. Fox's Kothar the barbarian series. I have bought two of them but one of them fell apart as I was reading it so I didn't get a chance to finish it.

Paizo Employee Publisher, Chief Creative Officer

Thongor: Rights not available.
Pusadian: I need to read more of this stuff, as my de Camp impressions are not exactly favorable.
Kothar: I have permission from Fox's family to reprint these, but doing so involves research that involves travel to another state and a lot of time in a library, and I haven't yet had the chance to make that happen.

What about Karl Edward Wagner's Kane novels and short stories?

Taldor Contributor

Just heard that Philip Jose Farmer passed away this month.

I wonder if some of his lesser known, but just as delightful, works might be available? Two-Hawks from Earth strikes me like a fit. Loved that book.

You'll be happy to hear Two Hawks will be reprinted in the near future, although not by Planet Stories. MonkeyBrain Books has picked it up. As a friend of Phil's and editor of his three latest collections, I was honored with being invited to write the afterword to the new edition, which I turned in last week, sadly before I had a chance to send it to the Farmers so it could be read to Phil.

Phil's works have come up in our discussions about possible titles to print a number of times, even before I came aboard here, and some others have also expressed some interest on the messageboards. We'll see what we can do. I do think it would be a nice fit with the line, and as the rabid Farmerphile that I am, I am certainly having fun nudging Erik about the prospects on a regular basis.

Well add my nudges to yours! I've been a Farmerphile myself for many years, and I think his work would make a splendid addition to Planet Stories. Two Hawks is on my perennial re-read list. I look foreward to reading your afterward.


Can I suggest a couple of books by E. Hoffman Price? I've never read them, but they look intriguing and are out of print:

The Devil Wives of Li Fong
The Jade Enchantress

Paizo Employee Publisher, Chief Creative Officer

I just picked up Jade Enchantress last month. I'm currently reading a serial E. Hoffman Price wrote with Otis Adelbert Kline called "Satans on Saturn." Boy, that one was a @#%# to track down, too!

Don't get too excited. In keeping with my new year's resolution about not saying anything if I can't think of anything nice to say(The Jade Enchantress).........................................;)

'Satans on Saturn',on the other hand,sounds totally cool,what a title!!

Any Gardner news (beyond what has already been said)?

Paizo Employee Publisher, Chief Creative Officer

Nope. I'll probably try to wrap the trip involved with the Fox novels this summer.


Hi there...been lurking a while, reading through this thread.
I've got to say that a lot (maybe the majority?) of authors and books mentioned here are available either new, or in used bookshops and online stores and even in some cases free to read and download from the internet.

On the other hand there's a whole lot of people writing new stories and novels...would it not make more sense to publish new authors alongside the old masters?
To be honest I've read most of the established sword/fantasy/planet authors many times. I'm guessing that's true for a lot of people who come here. I'd really like to see some sword and planet stories by new writers with new ideas.

But while you're digesting that might I suggest that British author (now sadly deceased) Kenneth Bulmer, wrote a few hundred novels in his lifetime and many of them are action/adventure based sci-fi and fantasy. I'm guessing a lot of people never got the chance to read them. I'm also guessing that it wouldn't be hard to get permission from his estate to re-publish many of them.
(He wrote the Dray Prescott series as Alan Burt Akers.) He wrote a great many novels novels under various names.
You can check out a lot of his books here:

http://www.fantasticfiction.co.uk/b/kenneth-bulmer/

Cheers: Jaq.


nullPlanet Stories Subscriber

Bulmer wrote a lot, but I haven't come across any that are any good.

Read a Dray Prescott adventure, those would be a possibility.

However, do you have any suggestions, other than 'this guy wrote a lot'?

A bit more convincing with some actual personal recommendation or experience, in general.


Hi there!

I am mostly a lurker here but I have written some sources in a previous message about french authors. I think this thread is may be a better place... =)

Just in case you didn't read my previous message, what about those books?
Anyone here red them?

Vampire of Mars

Ironcastle

Xipehuz

Perhaps some interesting novels in Europe? I am going to check and post here later.

I happen to have Ironcastle sitting on my shelf here at Paizo. Excellent book, and I'd love to see it back in print. I haven't read The Xipehuz but have been meaning to track it down for some time now. There's a lot of Rosny's work that sounds absolutely fascinating and I'd like to read it in English. From what I've read, he's much more innovative than Verne. I can read some French, but it is slow-going and I rarely have that much time on my hands. I have skimmed over Ironcastle in French, however, and Farmer retold it pretty closely, with a few Wold Newton-type embellishments on the sidelines.

I'm a big fan of Black Coat Press, who's putting out a lot of French pulp and SF in English (and the first book in your list, which I haven't read yet). In fact, I have a story in the latest Tales of the Shadowmen that leans heavily on Rosny. Working on another story for the next volume right now, so I've been reading through a lot of French lit of late.

Have you read any of these, Rhoward? Opinions? Have you read any pulps/sf/f that you consider worthy of seeing print again, French or otherwise?

Gustav Le Rouge is on my shelf and probably my next book but I don't know the two others. I know the author, however, through the Quest for Fire.

Is there any work or Jean Ray aka John Flanders in the USA ? If you like Lovecraft, Hodgson or Seabury Quinn, you have to read some of his books.Very weird stories...

More details there: Jean Ray

And I'd like to see more Seabury Quinn... =)

Bulmer's Dray Prescott books are available as ebooks from Mushroom Books and in print from Bladud Books.

I don't know about Bulmer's other books. I have several of them, usually on the "other side" of Ace Doubles I've collected for various reasons, but I haven't read anything by him other than Transit the Scorpio, the first Dray Prescott book, which was ok.

Do you have any recommendations of particularly good Bulmer books?

It would be wonderful to see some original stories published in the genre. Looking at the various authors who have written introductions for books in the Planet Stories line, I was thinking just how cool it would be if you could convince Joe Lansdale to write a couple of sword-and-planet novels....

Paizo Employee Publisher, Chief Creative Officer

Heh.


nullPlanet Stories Subscriber

New ones are ok if they can be as good as S. M. Stirling's In the Courts Of the Crimson Kings.


All the Rosny I've read is excellent,'The Quest of The Dawn Man' was a great Stone Age one. There was a cool paperback collection edited by Damon Knight,'13 French Science Fiction Stories'(a Galaxy of Gallic Fantasy),Bantam 1965. N.C.(Charles and Nathalie)Henneberg,Henry Damonti,Gerard Klein,Pierre Mille etc....all really good. Henneberg,'the A.Merritt of France', wrote a total classic called 'The Green Gods'(English translation published by Daw in 1980)....Kenneth Bulmer...:(....

Thanks, I'll definitely track down 13 French Science Fiction Stories and The Green Gods. Interesting, looks like the latter was translated by Planet Stories introducer C. J. Cherryh.

I've read some Farley (The Hidden Universe and some shorts), and I've managed to pick up the entire Radio-Man sequence (no mean feat) for later reading.

Interestingly, the D&D creature formians come from Farley's Radio-Man stories.

I only have 'The Radio Beasts' by Farley,which is the 2nd one I think,but I haven't read it yet,I'm waiting for you guys to put the first one out!! I read a couple of short stories which were pretty cool. Yes,that Daw version of 'The Green Gods' was translated by C.J.Cherryh,it's a classic!! Hmmm,I just saw that people are selling old copies of 'Genius Loci and other stories' by CAS for $135!!!! (U.S. too I think,that's a lot for an old paperback!!) I think I must have a bit of a treasure trove here if this is what people will pay for these things...I have all those Panther CAS ones,most in near new condition and thousands of other things like that. Oh well,I'm not going to sell them anyway...this is probably why they are worth so much money I suppose

Andoran

I'd love to see Planet Stories do the Kane series from Karl Edward Wagner. The paperbacks are all out of print (Warner Books used to do them)...
Bloodstone
Dark Crusade
Darkness Weaves
Death Angel's Shadow (3 novellas)
Night Winds (short stories)

Plus, there were a number of additional short stories collected in The Midnight Sun from Night Shade Books (now out of print and starting at about $150.00 used). Night Shade also collected the three novels as Gods In Darkness (starting at about $170.00 used).

These were all outstanding.

Any chance that Paizo might eventually consider E.C. Tubbs's Dumarest of Terra series? The early books have been out of print for a while, although apparently Tubb is working on a new novel in the series....

And how about H. Beam Piper's Space Viking? Or Lord Kalvan of Otherwhen?

Paizo Employee Publisher, Chief Creative Officer

I have a lot of the Dumarest books. I have the faintest tickle of a memory that tells me someone else (possibly in the UK) is republishing these, but I may be getting them confused with the Akers Scorpio books.

I recently picked up "Space Viking," and have a cruel mind to propose a "space viking" anthology somewhere down the road that might include things like Silverberg's "Spawn of the Deadly Sea" and Coppel's "The Rebel of Valkyr" (or "of Rhada," for that matter).

It's about 23rd on the list of anthologies I'd like to do, but it is in the notebook. :)

As I've said before, we've enquired about the Kane books, but our emails were not returned. May try again on those later.

Hmm,Space Vikings are ok,but not H.Beam Piper! Cringe...The problem with all that Dumarest and Scorpio stuff is there are just piles and piles of books in those series. Would you re-publish all 50 of them or whatever it is? I tried reading that stuff years ago as a teenager,when I loved just about every sci-fi book I read...but not this stuff!! It was probably the first stuff I read that just left me completely unimpressed. I totally understand why you have Piers Anthony,Gary Gygax etc,although it is a surprise to me that Anthony is still popular. He is not exactly modern! Hmm,if anybody wants to see just how bad a fantasy book can be,try 'Crewell Lye' by Piers. If anyone wants to see where a lot of the influence for the whole Weird Tales thing came from,I will wholeheartedly recommend 'Vathek' by William Beckford,1787. (Howard,Ashton Smith etc) Now THAT is GOOD! Same with all his other ones,eg.'The Nymph in The Fountain'. Read that everybody!I'll put in my usual request for the Leigh Brackett stuff that hasn't been re-published,a few of which are,'Citadel of Lost Ships','Last Call From Sector 9-G','Teleportress of Alpha','The Dragon Queen of Jupiter','Thralls of The Endless Night',there are more,can't remember them.
