About the Author

Philip José Farmer was born in North Terre Haute, Indiana on January 26, 1918. He worked in a steel mill while attending Bradley University at night and writing in his spare time. In 1952, his story The Lovers, in which a human has sex with an alien, was published in a pulp magazine called mostrar mais Startling Stories and won him the Hugo Award in 1953 for most promising new author. He quit his job to become a full-time writer, but a string of misfortunes eventually forced him to take jobs as a manual laborer. He worked as a technical writer from 1956 to 1970, but continued writing science fiction. He finally found success in the 1960's with the Riverworld series. He wrote more than 75 books throughout his lifetime including the Dayworld series and the World of Tiers series. He also wrote short stories. He won the Hugo award for best novella in 1968 for Riders of the Purple Wage and for best novel in 1972 for To Your Scattered Bodies Go. In 1988, he was the recipient of the Writers of the Past Award and the Nova for best book for Riverworld. In 2001 he was awarded the Grand Master Award and the World Fantasy Life Achievement Award. He died on February 25, 2009 at the age of 91. (Bowker Author Biography) mostrar menos

Pequena biografia
Born in Indiana in 1918, he had to earn a very young living. He attended evening classes and obtained his BA in letters in 1950. He is now one of the great figures of American science fiction and is read all over the world. (Thanks, Google Translation)

Philip José Farmer (January 26, 1918 – February 25, 2009) was an American author known for his science fiction and fantasy novels and short stories.

Farmer is best known for his sequences of novels, especially the World of Tiers (1965–93) and Riverworld (1971–83) series. He is noted for the pioneering use of sexual and religious themes in his work, his fascination for, and reworking of, the lore of celebrated pulp heroes, and occasional tongue-in-cheek pseudonymous works written as if by fictional characters. Farmer often mixed real and classic fictional characters and worlds and real and fake authors as epitomized by his Wold Newton family group of books. These tie all classic fictional characters together as real people and blood relatives resulting from an alien conspiracy. Such works as The Other Log of Phileas Fogg (1973) and Doc Savage: His Apocalyptic Life (1973) are early examples of literary mashup.

Literary critic Leslie Fiedler compared Farmer to Ray Bradbury as both being "provincial American eccentrics" who "strain at the classic limits of the [science fiction] form," but found Farmer distinctive in that he "manages to be at once naive and sophisticated in his odd blending of theology, pornography, and adventure."

In dem letzte Teil der Reihe sind die Protagonisten im Turm der Flusswelt angekommen. Nachdem der letzte Ethiker gestorben ist und dessen Mörder seiner gerechten Strafe zugeführt wurde, machen es sich die letzten Auserwählten gemütlich. Sie beziehen Klein-Welten und formen und bevölkern diese nach Ihrem Geschmack. Es kommen wieder viel bekannte Personen vor - inkl. Jack The Ripper. Die Situation spitzt sich zu als immer mehr Leute wiederbelebt werden, die weitere Personen wiederbeleben und so weiter.

Hierbei geht der Autor seinem gewohnten Schema nach: Viele Informationen über die Biographie der Historischen vorlagen und ausführliche Beschreibungen der Meinung des Autoren über diese.

Die Handlung bleibt so offen, dass am Ende wieder alle getötet werden müssen, um zum Ende zu kommen. Ein Plot der auch aus den anderen Teilen bekannt ist.
