BYOR (Bring Your Own Research)

Call this a reservation of a topic for future research. In the fantastic anthology The Worlds of Philip Jose Farmer: Protean Dimensions, the "lost" story "My Summer Husband" aroused my interests.

The introduction by Michael Croteau states that the story of an Alaskan "bear-god" and his lesss than faithful human mate "doesn't seem to be related to any of his [Farmer's] other work." At this stage, I disagree; however, before I run off half-cocked and make a total idiot of my self, I need to reread a few of Farmer's later novels.

  1. James, I'm not sure where you got the idea that Paul Malmont wrote the editorial introductions to each piece in the collection? Michael Croteau is the book's editor.

    All the best,

  2. Thanks for catching that, Win!

    When I was typing this up, I looked to the front cover of WORLDS to check the spelling of Mike's last name. Somehow, I got Mike's name as editor mixed up with Paul Malmont...I really have no idea how I managed such a feat. Ah well.
