Books edited by Philip Josť Farmer

The following list contains books with Farmer's name on the cover (or spine), but for the most part not written by him. MOTHER WAS A LOVELY BEAST was his first and really his only anthology. He did all the research and selected all of the stories and put together a great collection.

The Dungeon Series is an adventure story written by various authors in the Farmerian spirit.

TALES OF RIVERWORLD and QUEST TO RIVERWORLD are collections of stories set in Riverworld, Farmer got to choose from a selection of stories and contributed two of his own to each book.
