New Pulp Author Win Scott Eckert shared the following press release with All Pulp. You can read more about it here.

The Titan Books edition of The Other Log of Phileas Fogg by Philip Jose Farmer came out a few days ago, and here's what people are saying:

Christopher Paul Carey: "I must say, WOW! This is the classiest production of the book that I've seen. I was thinking it would be nice, but it exceeds my expectations: a matte finish and raised text on the cover, high-quality paper stock, classy design work on both the interior and exterior, not to mention the new afterword and timeline by Win. I give this edition an A+."

Art Sippo: "I just read the essay done by Win in The Other Log of Phileas Fogg Titan reprint. A terrific piece of work that actually links Philip Jose Farmer himself to the Wold Newton Universe and to many of the other characters in his stories. The detailed chronology is an extra added bonus. Great job, Win!"

The new edition also has the illustrations by Rick J. Bryant originally included in the early 1980s Tor edition, and is available in trade paperback and eBook.

Finally, Paul Spiteri and I spent an enjoyable hour discussing all of the Titan Books Wold Newton Series with Art Sippo, co-host of the Book Cave podcast. The podcast includes breaking news about previously unannounced titles coming in Titan's Wold Newton and Grandmaster series!
