Author Michael Hatt gives a presentation on ERB’s association with Coldwater, Michigan, and the research he’s done on his book “Tarzan Slept Here: Edgar Rice Burroughs and the Coldwater Connection”at the 2016 Dum-Dum in Morris, IL, hosted by the Burroughs Bibliophiles.
As an aside, it turns out the 2017 Dum-Dum is planned to be held in Coldwater, Michigan.
Christopher Paul Carey (co-author of THE SONG OF KWASIN with Philip José Farmer) discusses Farmer’s Ancient Opar Series at the 2016 Dum-Dum in Morris, IL, hosted by the Burroughs Bibliophiles.
A note from Christopher Paul Carey: I would like to correct two minor errors I made in my Dum-Dum talk. One, the Ancient Opar series is set 12,000 years ago (not 10,000 years ago). Two, Frank Brueckel’s last name is properly pronounced “Breckel” (not “Broy-kel”). I can only blame stage fright and lack of sleep for these mistakes, as I was well aware at the time of both facts.
Paul Spiteri (panel moderator and editor of the Philip José Farmer collection, PEARLS FROM PEORIA), Christopher Paul Carey (co-author with PJF on THE SONG OF KWASIN), Win Scott Eckert (co-author with PJF on THE EVIL IN PEMBERELY HOUSE), and DANNY ADAMS (co-author with PJF on THE CITY BEYOND PLAY and DAYWORLD: A HOLE IN WEDNESDAY, also Farmer’s great-nephew) discuss working with the Science Fiction Grand Master.
Danny Adams reads from his latest novel Dayworld: A Hole in Wednesday which he coauthored with Philip José Farmer.
Christopher Paul Carey reads from his new novella Blood of Ancient Opar the latest installment in Farmer’s Ancient Opar series, as well as from The Song of Kwasin which he coauthored with Farmer.
Win Scott Eckert reads from The Evil in Pemberely House which he coauthored with Farmer, and from his latest work, a chapbook, Being an Account of the Delay at Green River, Wyoming, of Phileas Fogg, World Traveler, or, the Masked Man Meets an English Gentlemen.
In this week’s episode I discuss “The God of Tarzan” by Edgar Rice Burroughs. This is a short story typically read in the Jungle Tales of Tarzan collection by Edgar Rice Burroughs. The story deals with a 19 year old Tarzan’s quest to find God after reading the term in the dictionary.
In this week’s episode I discuss The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath by H.P. Lovecraft. Randolph Carter searches through the Dreamlands for Kadath, where the gods of the Dreamlands dwell. This novella was never prepared for publication by HPL and wasn’t published during his lifetime. I found it a bit hard to get into, but enjoyed reading it ten pages at a time.
Christopher Paul Carey joins me in discussing his latest novella, Blood of Ancient Opar. This is the latest installment of Philip José Farmer’s Ancient Opar series and is a must read for all fans of Opar. Today (6/15/2016) is the last day to preorder the book at http://meteorhousepress.com/blood-of-ancient-opar/ and have your name in the acknowledgments.
