Attic > The Fabulous Riverboat

by Philip Jose Farmer

Book 2 of the Legendary Riverworld Saga

Winner of the Hugo Award

Resurrected on the lush, mysterious banks of Riverworld, along with rest of humanity, Samuel Langhorne Clemens (a.k.a. Mark Twain) has a dream: to build a riverboat that will rival the most magnificent paddle-wheelers ever to navigate the mighty Mississippi. Then, to steer it up the endless waterway that dominates his new home planet--and discover its hidden source.

But before he can carry out his plan, he first must undertake a voyage to unearth a fallen meteor. This mission would require striking an uneasy alliance with the bloodthirsty Viking Erik Bloodaxe, treacherous King John of England, legendary French swordsman Cyrano de Bergerac, Greek adventurer Odysseus, and the infamous Nazi Hermann Goring. All for the purpose of storming the ominous stone tower at the mouth river, where the all-powerful overseers of Riverworld--and their secrets--lie in wait...
