i To Your Scattered Bodies Go i is the Hugo Award winning beginning to the story of Riverworld Philip Jos Farmer s unequaled tale about life after death When famous adventurer Sir Richard Francis Burton dies the last thing he expects to do is awaken naked on a foreign planet along the shores of a seemingly endless river But that s where Burton and billions of other humans plus a few nonhumans find themselves as the epic Riverworld saga begins It seems that all of Earthly humanity has been resurrected on the planet each with an indestructible container that provides three meals a day cigarettes alcoholic beverages a lighter and the odd tube of lipstick But why And by whom p That s what Burton and a handful of fellow adventurers are determined to discover as they construct a boat and set out in search of the river s source thought to be millions of miles away Although there are many hardships during the journey including an encounter with the infamous Hermann Goring Burton s resolve to complete his quest is strengthened by a visit from the Mysterious Stranger a being who claims to be a renegade within the very group that created the Riverworld The stranger tells Burton that he must make it to the river s headwaters along with a dozen others the Stranger has selected to help stop an evil experiment at the end of which humanity will simply be allowed to die i Craig E Engler i p, In i To Your Scattered Bodies Go i Philip Jos Farmer introduces readers to the awesome Riverworld a planet that had been carved into one large river on whose shores all of humanity throughout the ages has seemingly been resurrected In i The Fabulous Riverboat i Farmer tells the tale of one person whose is uniquely suited to find the river s headwaters riverboat captain and famous Earthly author Sam Clemens a k a Mark Twain Clemens has been visited by X a mysterious being who claims to be a rebel among the group that created Riverworld X tells Clemens where he can find a large deposit of iron and other materials that Clemens can use to build the greatest riverboat ever seen Since there is virtually no metal on the planet it will also give Clemens an unbeatable edge when it comes to battling the various warlike societies that dominate the Riverworld p But Clemens is not alone in his quest for the iron which arrives on the planet in the form of a giant meteorite In fact Clemens is besieged on all sides by forces determined to seize the precious ore leading him to make a deadly pact with one of history s most notorious villains John Lackland Lackland s crimes during his reign as king of England were so hideous that no other English monarch will ever carry his name and he s up to equally nefarious tricks on Riverworld However Clemens has a guardian angel in the form of Joe Miller a giant subhuman with a big nose a serious lisp and a cutting wit Miller has also been to the very headwaters of the river where he saw a mysterious tower in the middle of the North Sea and where the creators of Riverworld are thought to reside He will be an invaluable ally in completing the riverboat and sailing to the headwaters but even an pound giant may not be enough to help Clemens fulfill X s mission i Craig E Engler i p, i The Dark Design i is the rd book in the epic Riverworld saga in which almost all of humanity has been resurrected along the shores of a million mile long river Why have humans been given another chance at life amp who s behind it all That s what Sir Richard Francis Burton amp Sam Clemens set out to discover in two earlier novels one by riding the suicide express if you die on Riverworld you re resurrected again at a random point on the river amp the other steaming on the greatest riverboat ever seen Now Milton Firebrass Clemens s former enemy now his lieutenant is planning to use the dwindling iron supply of Riverworld to create a great airship which can fly to the North Polar Sea far more quickly than any boat can travel There he hopes to learn the secret of the mysterious tower thought to house the beings who created the planet Jill Gulbirra doesn t care as much about the mission as she wants the chance to captain the airship in all likelihood the last airship to be constructed But in landing the coveted role she faces stiff competition especially from the greatest swordsman of all Cyrano de Bergerac who turns out to be a natural pilot But even if Jill can win the command of the airship amp even if it can reach the river s headwaters there s no guarantee it can get thru the mountain wall that surrounds the tower amp it s likely that agents of the Ethicals Riverworld s creators are on board the airship plotting its downfall Worse still somewhere along the way the airship is sure to encounter the i Rex Grandissimus i the steamboat stolen by Sam s archnemesis King John Lackland Craig E Engler edited, At the end of i The Fabulous Riverboat i Sam Clemens finally set out in the great iron riverboat i Not for Hire i to reach the headwaters of the massive river on whose shores humanity has been resurrected After years on the river Clemens and his crew including the giant subhuman Joe Miller are finally near the end of their journey and only one obstacle remains the evil Earthly king John Lackland John is waiting just upriver in the i Rex Grandissimus i the first riverboat that Sam constructed and the one that John and his crew hijacked and he s hell bent on sinking Sam s boat and vice versa Complicating the battle is the fact that both ships likely contain agents of the Ethicals the group of advanced beings who created Riverworld for reasons unknown One or more of the Ethicals themselves may even be on board as are various humans that the rebel Ethical known as the Mysterious Stranger but known to Clemens simply as X enlisted in his cause which may or may not lead to humanity s salvation p The battle is set to take place along the shores populated by members of the Church of the Second Chance a group that believes they must attain ethical perfection in order to proceed to the next phase of existence The Second Chancers are not violent but their charismatic leader La Viro may attempt to sink one or both of the iron ships in order to prevent the battle Among the Second Chancers is former Nazi officer Hermann Goring who had a run in with Sir Richard Francis Burton in the first Riverworld novel i To Your Scattered Bodies Go i Burton and his companions among them several people who were contacted by the Mysterious Stranger are reluctantly serving on John s boat in order to reach the headwaters of the river But will any of the humans working for X survive the coming battle And if so how can they possibly hope to penetrate the tower in the North Sea where the Ethicals are thought to reside And what could lowly humans hope to do against a race so advanced that they can reshape entire planets and resurrect all of humanity i Craig E Engler i p
