Sadly another great man has left us.
Philip Jose Farmer died this morning aged 91.
The author of the incredible "Riverworld" series and "The World of Tiers" is a great loss to this planet. In my opinion one of the greatest authors of the 20th century in any genre, in science fiction and fantasy he was by far the best.
A true story teller light years ahead of others in his field, but sadly no longer fashionable, his works are denied to a generation reared on the inferior scribblings of the currently fashionable authors.
