About this title

From Booklist:

During a nearly 60-year career distinguished by much stylistic and thematic experimentation, Farmer has earned his reputation as one of sf's true innovators. In 1952, his first published sf story, "The Lovers," which opens this long-overdue collection, broke the taboo of writing about sex in the genre. His Hugo-winning "Riders of the Purple Wage," also here, was a highlight of Harlan Ellison's landmark, genre-bending anthology, Dangerous Visions (1969). Another classic featured here is the novella "Riverworld," which laid the foundation for the award-winning series of the same name, wherein Earth's 35 billion dead have been inexplicably resurrected on an alien world. Other vintage tales provide an original take on time travel, the true fate of King Kong, and a morsel of alternate history following Christopher Columbus' voyage to the edge of the world. Farmer's far-reaching vision and shifting narrative voice may make his style difficult to categorize, but the varied contents of this compilation confirm his status as an entertaining and challenging sf living legend.
