R.I.P. Philip Jose Farmer

Philip Jose Farmer passed away at age 91 Wednesday the 25th. I vividly remember "To Your Scattered Bodies Go" and it pushed me to think about what it is to be a human being. Actually,
that's my personal definition of good science fiction - it forces you to think, specifically about humans and the human condition.

There's a lovely obituary in Farmer's local paper.

What stories do YOU remember from Philip Jose Farmer?
