Volume Two in the Riverworld sf series, sequel to TO YOUR SCATTERED BODIES GO.

''he gained greatest popular acclaim with his Riverworld series, set on a planet where a godlike race has resurrected the whole of humanity along the banks of a multi-million-mile river. The series is made up of To Your Scattered Bodies Go (1965-1966 Worlds of Tomorrow; fixup 1971), THE FABULOUS RIVERBOAT (1967-1971 If; fixup 1971), The Dark Design (1977), Riverworld and Other Stories (coll 1979), The Magic Labyrinth (1980), Riverworld War: The Suppressed Fiction of Philip Jose Farmer (coll 1980), The Gods of Riverworld (1983) and River of Eternity (1983), the last being a rediscovered rewrite of the lost I Owe for the Flesh. The first of these won a 1972 Hugo. Such historical personages as Sir Richard Burton), Samuel Clemens (Mark Twain) and Jack London explore the terrain and relate to one another in their search to understand, in terms mundane and metaphysical, the new universe which has tied them together. As surviving characters begin to overdose on the freedoms (or powers) they have discovered in themselves, the plots of the later volumes become increasingly chaotic, perhaps deliberately'' (David Pringle & John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF).
