Philip José Farmer 1918-2009

Philip José Farmer died today at the age of 91. I remember Mr. Farmer as the Science Fiction writer who finally brought sex to SF, even before Heinlein. His story The Lovers is the first and best story of a love affair between an alien and a human. His Riverworld Series will always be on my list of best science fiction.

He will be missed.

    Another great one gone. I first encountered Riverworld back in the early 1980’s. Loved it then.
