he worlds are odd and straight out of PJF I m sure Richard A Lupoff knew what Farmer had in mind when he conceived the Dungeon AND TRIED TO STAY CLOSE TO tried to stay close to blueprintI ve never heard of Richard A Lupoff before this undertaking His prose is okay Nothing to shout about but most of PJF s is the same wayThe characters are fairly well done I know both Smythe and Bombay are still hiding things Folliot isn t as skilled as most PJF heroes but #The Devotion To His #

pages of introduction to second book and then we have page 1 again which makes navigation annoying This was all good and fine on hand typed Russian Bootlegs In The Days When Unapproved bootlegs in the days when unapproved were forbidden but this is just silly Sometime in the mid 1980 s Philip Jose Farmer came up with the concept of The Dungeon a six part saga of Clive Folliot searching bizarre worlds for his missing brother and turned other writers oose on it The Black Tower Major Clive Folliot eaves his post in the army and his The Road From Home: The Story Of An Armenian Girl
lover behind in order to go to euatorial Africa to search for his missing brother Neville Along the way he runs afoul of shady gamblers meets an old friend of his Horace Hamilton Smythe and a new friend Sidi BombayHowever once Clive gets to Africa he finds his journey has just begun when he is plunged into another world The Dungeon and has to contend with its mysterious inhabitants while searching for his missing brotherThe concept of The Dungeon is remniscent of both Riverworld and the World of Tiers two PJF favorites People are plucked from various worlds and time periods and whisked to the worlds of the Dungeon to take part in some kind of cosmic chess game.
