Philip Jose Farmer wrote fantasies that appealed primarily to imaginative male adolescents of the last mid-century. In this one humanity wakes, naked, to an every-man-for-himself afterlife. A tribe forms, consisting of, among others, daredevil explorer Richard F. Burton, Alice Liddel (the inspiration for ALICE IN WONDERLAND), a space alien, a Neanderthal, and a twenty-first century anthropologist. Paul Hecht's measured style of delivery, which normally works so well for him, here brings the novel's structural flaws into high relief. Otherwise, his old radio voice and characterization skill are pleasantly diverting in spite of mediocre sound quality. Y.R. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 01]
