From the stories that led to the creation of his best-selling ?Riverworld? and ?Dayworld? novels, to more unusual selections like ?Uproar in Acheron? (a western-cum-fantasy), ?The Jungle Rot Kid on the Nod? (a story which works as both literary pastiche and homage), or break-all-the-rules fiction like ?The Henry Miller Dawn Patrol? (a Farmer favorite which was first published in ?Playboy? magazine), it's all here. With a total of 20 different stories and one Farmer-penned introduction that add up to nearly two hundred thousand words, ?The Best of Philip Jose Farmer? is, hands down, the finest collection of Farmer stories ever assembled.
