Author Philip José Farmer, 1918-2009

Sadly, science fiction author Philip José Farmer passed away earlier today, February 25, 2009, at age 91. Born in 1918, Farmer had his first works published in the early 1950s. He won several Hugo Awards and was named a Grand Master by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America in 2001.

Farmer’s novel Jesus on Mars (1979), which was dedicated to his mother, will be reprinted along with two other works by Farmer in the omnibus The Other in the Mirror (Subterranean Press, March 2009).
