R.I.P. Philip Jose Farmer

Just found out about this via Chris Roberson and Win Scott Eckert. We've lost another literary giant. Phil Farmer passed away this morning at 4am in Peoria, Illinois. Never got to meet him but many of my author pals count Farmer as a humongous influence. Chris, Win, and Christopher Paul Carey come immediately to mind. Best wishes to all who loved Phil and his work. Pictured here is my cover for MYTHS FOR THE MODERN AGE: PHILIP JOSE FARMER'S WOLD NEWTON UNIVERSE, edited by Win and published by MonkeyBrain Books about four years ago.
