From Michel Croteau, the webmaster of The Official Philip José Farmer Home Page

For the first time, Meteor House has put THE WORLDS OF PHILIP JOSÉ FARMER 1: Protean Dimensions on sale for 10% off; through October 17th only. Still not convinced you need this book, check out this excerpt from Randall Garrett's essay, "The Bite of the Asp," which you may not have known was Phil's original title for the story, "The Biological Revolt." Just how unhappy was Phil with this story? It has never been reprinted. And fifty years later, as we were putting together the mammoth collection of rarities, PEARLS FROM PEORIA, Phil still refused to let it be reprinted. And, just in case you missed them, there are also excerpts online from A Kick in the Side by Christopher Paul Carey, and the Editor's Preface by Michael Croteau.

Also, Michael had some good things to say about a certain website, that the Spectacled Seven definitely appreciate...

"Speaking of Win Scott Eckert, he was recently
interviewed at the All Pulp. Just click on that link and scroll down to the headline: WIN SCOTT ECKERT AND ERIC FEIN, Writers of THE GREEN GHOST, for RETURN OF THE ORIGINALS. After reading the interview, go ahead and kill an hour or three at this excellent website. "
