The Farmer's Daughter

Postby kevinkirby » Wed Feb 25, 2009 6:24 pm

I've recently enjoyed the recollection of one night, decades ago, at Philip José Farmer's L.A. place, when I was removed to separate quarters to enjoy a tea party with one of his daughters. I can't remember a single thing about it -- did it truly happen at all? -- yet, there you have it. Probably someone's granny by now.

Oddly enough, I recently reread Image Of The Beast. Interesting that such a wonderful man could write such a sick book..

Image of the Beast; I'm sure I read that one, in my voracious-fan teen years. Those Riverworld books sure were great. I was already well-versed in Genre by the time of my unexpected visit to the Farmer Digs.

Harlan, on the other hand, I first met in the mid-sixties. As I recall, it was an encounter that landed me back outside for a long wait. From that day, I remember a gameboard for something called Tabletop Skittles -- and also the unseen presence of a television actor from that new Star Trek series.
