The Geomancer


Special Offer

My parent company, Prometheus Books, leading publisher of books on popular science, critical thinking and philosophy, actually publishes quite a few books of SFnal interest, including books by several SF writers. Over on their site, they've put together a special offer to take advantage of some synergistical opportunities, offering any combination of one Prometheus title and one Pyr title for a 35% discount. Although the discount applies to any combination you care to pair, the have a list of suggested titles of related interest:

It's Been a Good Life, Isaac Asimov, edited by Janet Jeppson Asimov with Macrolife: A Mobile Utopia, George Zebrowski

Nanofuture, J. Storrs Hall with The Resurrected Man, Sean Williams

The Da Vinci Fraud, Robert M. Price with The Crown Rose, Fiona Avery

Just a Theory, Moti Ben-Ari with Galileo's Children, edited by Gardner Dozois

Glowing Genes, Mark Zimmer PhD with Genetopia, Keith Brooke

Corporate Crooks: How Rogue Americans Ripped Off Americans..., Greg Farrell and Infoquake, David Louis Edelman

The Cult of Alien Gods: HP Lovecraft and Extraterrestrial Pop Culture, Jason Colavito and Tides, Scott Mackay

But as I say, those are only suggestions. For information on the books above, go to the Special Offers page.

Update: Overseas Orders can be placed by calling 1-716-691-0133.


  1. What's a parent company?

    The reason I ask is that I emailed Prometheus Books several times about a book that I had written, but they don't seem to answer :-(

    Do you think you can help?

  2. Hi Bud,
    Pyr is an imprint of Prometheus Books, i.e, Pyr is a special line dedicated to science fiction and fantasy titles, which I run, within the larger house that is Prometheus, who are (primarily) a nonfiction publisher. I don't deal with their nonfiction submissions at all, but you should follow the guidelines on their own site.

  3. Curses, no internet ordering functionality. Any way a Limey can hook up on this offer, or is it exclusive to the US?

  4. Perhaps because of the late hour, I read that first title as It's Been a Good Life, Isaac Asimov, which made me envision a very strange mutation of Peanuts.
