Philip Jose Farmer, RIP

This esteemed science fiction writer died yesterday at age 91. I especially enjoyed his “Riverworld” series of novels that featured Sir Richard Francis Burton as a main character. Phil Farmer and I are not related, but when I was in graduate school at CU – Boulder, I remember meeting his step-daughter at a party. How’s that for three degrees of separation?

  1. “Lord Tyger” about put me off PJF, but “To Your Scattered Bodies Go” was very good and “Venus on the Half Shell” fun, particularly back before he came out as the author.
