RIP, Philip Jose Farmer, one of the great, towering talents of science fiction, the man whose Riverworld books transported me farther than any other sf I'd read at that point.
Philip José Farmer passed away peacefully in his sleep this morning.
He will be missed greatly by his wife Bette, his children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, friends and countless fans around the world.
January 26, 1918 – February 25, 2009. R.I.P.
We love you Phil.
