BLOG Remembering Philip Jose Farmer

SFX was sad to hear of the death of respected author Philip José Farmer this week. We're big fans of the Riverworld books, and so it seems is our blogger Stuart Hall...

It was with great sadness that I read of the death, on Wednesday, of the author Philip José Farmer at the age of 91. A favourite of mine for a very long time (a quick count revealed 33, at least, of his novels and short story collections gracing my shelves) he will be sorely missed by the SF community.

This blog is by Stuart Hall, one of our new volunteer bloggers - read more about some of our contributors in the next issue of SFX, on sale Wednesday 11 March.

Meanwhile, as our thoughts and sympathies go out to Farmer's family and fans, let us know if you're familiar with his books.
