Strap on your jet pack and set out for unforgettable interplanetary adventure with Planet Stories®, Paizo Publishing's exciting science fiction and fantasy fiction imprint! Personally selected by Erik Mona and Paizo's award-winning editorial staff, each Planet Stories volume has been chosen with the interests of fantasy and science fiction enthusiasts and gamers in mind. Timeless classics from authors like Robert E. Howard (Conan the Barbarian), Michael Moorcock (Elric), and Leigh Brackett (The Empire Strikes Back) will add an edge to your personal library, providing a better understanding of the genre with classic stories that easily stand the test of time.
Each Planet Stories edition is a Paizo exclusive—you cannot get these titles from any other publisher. Many of the tales in our line first appeared in the "pulp era" of the early 20th Century that produced authors like H.P. Lovecraft, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Fritz Lieber, and Robert E. Howard, and have been out of print for decades. Others are available only in rare limited editions or moldering pulp magazines worth hundreds of dollars.
Each Planet Stories volume comes with a new introduction from a modern giant of speculative fiction like George Lucas, Tim Powers, Joe R. Lansdale, and Ben Bova, providing amusing and informative entry points to each book.
Here's what the media is saying about Planet Stories:
"…a series that might be called 'Why the Hell Isn't This in Print?' books." —Ryan Harvey, Black Gate Magazine
"It's been a while since anyone published a line of SF and Fantasy 'classics' simply because they were great adventures and fun to read; I wish Paizo all luck with Planet Stories, and I hope it thrives for years to come. This world needs all the pulp it can get!" —Andrew Wheeler, ComicMix.com
"For lovers of the planetary romance, the other-world adventure, or the sword and sorcery tale rife with abominable creatures and darker magics, you can't go wrong with these classic tales of the imagination." —Dave Truesdale, Fantasy & Science Fiction magazine
