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.
I loved the “river” series…
Oh no, not another one. That makes … at least six of my favorite authors dead in the last four years.
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.
