Word reaches us tonight here at the Library of the passing of science-fiction legend Philip Jose Farmer, of whom we wrote just a week ago. Equally at home with mainstream sci-fi, hardcore pornography, ghosting Vonnegut's fictional Kilgore Trout and Lester Dent's DOC SAVAGE or revisting Oz, one got the impression that Farmer would have been perfectly happy to write old-style pulp fiction 24 hours a day.
Seen here is GREATHEART SILVER, my own first exposure to Farmer from 1976's "new pulp" WEIRD HEROES, Vol 1. The art is by Tom Sutton.
Thank you for the thrills and chills, sir! Enjoy your riverboat cruise!
