To many he will be remembered as the creator of the “Riverworld” series of books or maybe as one of the fathers of the new wave of scifi in the 1950s and 1960s. Some may even have noted his style always making use of sexual and religious content. I will remember the first book of his I read, “Doc Savage: His Apocalyptic Life,” and how it brought all those pulp characters of another age to life for me. Farmer did similar things with Tarzan and Sherlock Holmes and other fictional characters that he gave new life to.
We have truly lost one of the greats, and he will be missed…
