Farmerphile The Magazine of Philip Josť Farmer is about to ship. This issue has material including a previously unpublished Farmer story, an essay by Locus Magazine contributing editor Gary K. Wolfe, and another essay by Danny Adams, who recently completed Phil's unfinished novel, The City Beyond Play.

Farmerphile is a quarterly magazine completely dedicated to works by and about Philip Josť Farmer. It features the unpublished novel Up from the Bottomless Pit, a suspense-thriller about the ultimate disaster in the oil industry, serialized over the first ten issues. These ten issues will also include other unpublished stories, speeches and letters by Farmer himself, as well as articles about the Grand Master and his work from his fans and peers. Farmerphile is illustrated by such artists as Jason Robert Bell, Charles Berlin, Keith Howell, and Karl Kauffman.
