Format: Mass Market Paperback
Farmer is one of the premier literary gamesmen of the day, as his two "biographies" of Tarzan and Doc Savage showed. Here, he turns his attention to Verne...explaining discrepencies in Verne's AROUND THE WORLD IN EIGHTY DAYS, involving the more famous Captain Nemo in the process (who is revealed not to be an Indian Prince, but Professor Moriarity). Infuriating to the literalist, but excellent fun for anyone with imagination. A little too dry in areas, and the dialogue is forced sometimes...which may be more Verne's defect than Farmer's, since he had to work with other author's concepts and characterizations. Still, quite excellent.

I've just received my Titan edition of The Other Log of Phileas Fogg!

Over the last three decades I must have read this novel three or four times and each time I have reverted to my Tor version from 1982.Being a big fan of the source novel I was delighted and fascinated with how my favourite author wound his own version of events in with the Verne classic. Rereading the book only added to the enjoyment as new depths of understanding and revelation became apparent to me. Philip José Farmer did a wonderful job with this novel and his love and appreciation of Around the World in 80 Days shines through the whole book.

I love collecting books, especially Farmer books, so of course this Titan reprint would be on my wish list. But what really sold it for me were the enticing new `extras' promised and, boy, do they live up to the promise! Win Scott Eckert's afterword `Only a Coincidence' has the sub title "Phileas Fogg, Philip José Farmer, and the Wold Newton Family." What follows is a gripping, fascinating, and erudite essay into the whole Wold Newton legend. These 23 pages are packed with facts, revelations, and interpretations that are as gripping as any piece of prose. Anyone wanting a full and detailed exposure to the Wold Newton Family need not look any further. I particularly love the Fogg-Farmer family tree and if your eyes don't widen suddenly as you take it in then you have better reserve than me!

Then follows a 10 page chronology, again by Eckert. Another fascinating read that distils, with absolute clarity, the major events linked with The Other Log of Phileas Fogg.

So, if you already own this book and have no intention of rereading it (though you'll miss revisiting an old friend!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best entries in Farmer's Wold Newton cycle 13 May 2012
By Sean Levin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a huge fan of the groundbreaking, sorely underrated science fiction author, Philip José Farmer, I am thrilled that this classic book is back in print. This account of the secret history behind Jules Verne's AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS is an audacious and inventive take on that classic novel. Unlike many of today's deconstructionist authors, Farmer tells us details Verne was not privy to, rather than taking an "everything you know is wrong" approach. His characterization of Verne's and other authors' characters is wholly consistent with his predecessors', and his revelations never seem contrived (not even his controversial claims as to Captain Nemo's true identity.) Rounding out the book is an afterword, family tree, and chronology by lifelong Farmerphile (and co-author with him of THE EVIL IN PEMBERLEY HOUSE) Win Scott Eckert summarizing Fogg's connection to Farmer's extended family of literary and pulp heroes known as the Wold Newton Family, the mythos of which plays a prominent role in this book. This includes some startling revelations regarding the connection between Farmer and Fogg. Longtime fans of Peoria's finest author will be startled and overjoyed. I recommend this delightful tome to fans of Jules Verne, Arthur Conan Doyle, Robert Louis Stevenson, Sir Walter Scott, the steampunk genre (for which this book serves as one of the earliest modern entries), and the late, great Phil Farmer.

5.0 out of 5 stars What Really Happened During Around The World In Eighty Days 25 Feb. 2015
By Jason Aiken - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The Other Log of Phileas Fogg is the secret account of what really happened to the titular hero during Jules Verne's Around the World in Eighty Days. This is a great steampunk adventure, filled with secret alien societies, an interesting cast of characters.

If you're a Jules Verne, science fiction, and steampunk fan, definitely give The Other Log of Phileas Fogg a shot. This is also a must read for fans of Farmer's Wold Newton Family. Phileas Fogg is in the Wold Newton Family, as is his nemesis in this book, Professor Moriarty.

If you read this book and enjoy it, be sure to check out the sequel, Phileas Fogg in The War of Shadows by Joshua Reynolds, published by Metoer House Press. A worth follow up adventure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Three-in-One: Fun, Adventure, and a good Back Story 5 Mar. 2014
By Danny Adams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A lot of science fiction is very serious but it isn't always fun; The Other Log of Phileas Fogg manages to be both. And I'll admit that I've always been a sucker for the SF or fantasy "back story" of some famous tale or historical event, which this does--and with the help of a host of other famous literary characters. Throw in the adventure (a big source of the fun) and you get a triple crown. If you're looking for hard SF or something "edgy" this isn't going to do it for you, but if you want an enjoyable, classic read that also seems to have predated steampunk by quite awhile, then Other Log is the book you should be snatching up.

5.0 out of 5 stars This was a pretty hard-to-find book 9 Oct. 2016

This was a pretty hard-to-find book. Of course, with Amazon you can almost always find what you want.

I'm a big fan of the author, and I'm curious to see his spin on Around the World in 80 Days.
