Philip José Farmer

Philip José Farmer, January 26, 1918–February 25, 2009


Peoria Journal-Star:
Philip Jose Farmer dead at 91



  1. Stefan Jones says:

    This is one of those “sad but not sorry” deaths . . . sad that he’s gone, but what a career! What an amazing diversity of novels and stories!

    When I first heard the news, I thought “Riverworld.” Then through the day, I remembered the odd and kinky stories, and the tributes and analysis of Tarzan, and “Riders of the Purple Wage.”

    A life not wasted.

  2. licitat says:

    I loved the “river” series…

  3. Ross Presser says:

    Oh no, not another one. That makes … at least six of my favorite authors dead in the last four years.

  4. John says:

    The “River” series was my first SF novel set. Farmer was a wonderful writer and, like many others, will be sorely missed by the SF community at large.
    Also, I would just like to comment on Mr. Pohl’s blog, I love it! It is so very well written and a delight to read in the middle of yet another dry, boring work day.
