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 It features the unpublished novel UP FROM THE BOTTOMLESS PIT, a suspense-thriller about the ultimate disaster in the oil industry, serialized over the first ten issues. These ten issues will also include other unpublished stories, speeches and letters by Farmer himself, as well as articles about the Grand Master and his work from his fans and peers.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 fabulously illustrated by such talented artists as Jason Robert Bell, Charles Berlin, Keith Howell, Karl Kauffman and Shannon Robicheaux.
