PHILIP JOSÉ FARMER
GODS OF
RIVERWORLD

"You are in this book.  So is everyone who ever lived..."

More than twenty years ago, Philip José Farmer began the epic chronicle of the planet called Riverworld, and of the thirty-five billion men and women who woke there one morning to begin the first day of life after death.  Resurrected by the power of an alien race, for reasons they can only guess at, unlikely fellow travelers like Mark Twain, Herman Göring, and Cyrano de Bergerac wonder the banks of a ten-million-mile long river in search of their makers and the answers to this mystery.

Now some of their questions have been answered, and even more raised, by their discovery of the giant tower that rises from Riverworld's north polar sea.  Here is the great computer that controls the resurrection process - and their mastery of that mechanism will make them like gods in Riverworld, with power of life and death over those billions of human lives.  But they are not alone in the tower.  Strange footsteps in

the corridors, attempts on their lives, one "accident" after another, all lead them to an inevitable conclusion: either there is an assassin left behind in the tower - or one of their band is a traitor!

Readers everywhere will rejoice to see Philip José Farmer back at work in Riverworld, unquestionably the finest achievement of this most speculative, wide-ranging, and outrageous writer ever.

Philip José Farmer is considered one of the great science fiction writers in the field's history.  He reached his deserved level of success with the Riverworld series, first begun in 1971 with the Hugo award-winning To Your Scattered Bodies Go, and continuing with the bestseller The Magic Labyrinth.  Mr. Farmer and his wife live in Peoria, Illinois.
