    I finished reading Worlds of Philip Jose Farmer last night – plenty of good meaty stuff. (and loved Win’s story)

    Gotta love the PJF!

    Of course, the gems of this collection are the new Farmer pieces, “Summer Husband” and “Newly Born, Newly Dead” (though this last is imcomplete). I really enjoyed the other stories that carry on Farmer’s work, “Kick in the Side” and “Flesh Endures”, this last a nice twist putting two of Farmer’s stories together!

    Oh, heck, it’s just all good!

    Tip of the Hat to Chris Roberson’s excellent Greatheart Silver story! An eclectically satisfying book all around.
