Riverworld

(1979)
And Other Stories
(A book in the Riverworld series)
A collection of stories by

 
A volume collecting eleven stories, including an 80-page "Riverworld" novella, "Riverworld" being the author's most famous fictional device, a planet on which everyone who has ever lived on Earth up to the year 2008 finds himself resurrected one fine day. Published in 1971, the first volume in the "Riverworld"saga - "To your scattered bodies go" - is a breathtaking novel which promptly and rightly won the Hugo Award. Farmer managed to sustain the momentum in "The fabulous riverboat", but lost it a little in volume three, "The dark design", a book as thick as the first two volumes put together, but not quite as good. This superb collection, however, contains the original 86-page "Riverworld" novella.
