Somewhere, On an Unimaginably Long Riverbank, A Grail-Stone Crackles to Life.

R.I.P. Phillip Jose Farmer

My sympathy to his family and fans of his work – while I’d read and enjoyed his Riverworld series, which he was best known for, as a fan of the pulp era of literature I always had a soft spot for his books on the Wold Newton family and his linking together pulp heroes such as Tarzan and Doc Savage, and which later inspired both Warren Ellis’ ‘Planetary’ Series, and Alan Moore’s ‘League of Extraordinary Gentlemen’
