A Berkley Book, published by arrangement with the author. I finished reading the book and immediately dashed off to my local purveyor of paperbacks, to locate the sequel which I knew existed, The Gates of Creation. When I'd finished reading it, the sunny morning in Saturday and its Baltimore had gone away and night filled the day all the way up to the top of the sky. The next thing that I wrote was not my story, but a fan letter to Philip Jose Farmer.

Philip José Farmer was born in Indiana in 1918. Although he once said he resolved to become a writer in the fourth grade, it wasn't until 1952 that his first SF was published - the novella 'The Lovers', which won him the Hugo Award for Most Promising New Author

Philip José Farmer was born in Indiana in 1918. Although he once said he resolved to become a writer in the fourth grade, it wasn't until 1952 that his first SF was published - the novella 'The Lovers', which won him the Hugo Award for Most Promising New Author. Although best known for his Riverworld sequence, beginning with the Hugo Award-winning To Your Scattered Bodies Go, Farmer also pioneered the use of sexual and religious themes in SF and wrote several novels reworking the lore of celebrated pulp heroes such as Tarzan and Doc Savage.

But things are changing!

First Tiers novel featuring Earth-born Kickaha  . Summary: The creator of the world of tiers is missing, and his sometime pal Kickaha sets out to find him for his own purposes, having adventures along the way.

A Private Cosmos feels like a churner, though that may just be because I joined the story too late. It’s the third entry in Farmer’s World Of Tiers series, a series he returned to periodically from 1965 until 1993. I can see why, too. It’s a neat concept: Powerful, godlike humans have used advanced technology to create a planet that contains distinct worlds within worlds.

A writer as good as this deserves to have more material published on kindle. The fact that I would go thru the hassle of buying an out of print version just to get more of his stories proves it.

A Private Cosmos, Philip Jose Farmer, A review modified for Amazon.com

I remember why I zipped through these "World of Tiers" novels when I was younger. They are all action and are short, short, short compared to most books today. This one was around 185 pages.

There's no Wolff in this outing. If any recall from "The Gates of Creation" (available in Amazon Marketplace as used book) Wolff... well to avoid spoilers, is "detained" and isn't immediately coming back to the World of Tiers (Also available at Amazon Marketplace as the first 5 novels in the series), where he has, unknown to Kickaha, "left him in charge".

Kickaha, one of our favorite "World of Tiers" (multi)characters is on about his own business when he finds himself the object of the manhunt of the "universe". That, by itself, is only a minor shock. He is supposed to be buddies with “Wolff”, the Lord in charge around those parts. But Kickaha doesn't know he is supposed to be "in charge".

The people who are all hunting him, while not unusual in the “hunting of him” by itself, are however, from the wrong worlds... or tiers in this particular world/universe. This is a shock. For the sake of easing the review reader's understanding, it is to Kickaha as if he were in the Aztec capitol in the heyday of the Aztecs, and King Arthur's knights and armies suddenly appeared in full armor, lances, and chain mail intent on Kickaha's capture and/or demise.

Like in the days of these 'series', you could probably pick up this 3rd book in the World of Tiers series and you would be fine reading it as an independent novel. You would not be as enriched, but you would not be denied an exciting story, from start to ending. And that's pretty much what you get with this novel. (Would never sell with today's book producers... )

Metaphorically, you step into car #43 <buy NASCAR stuff at Amazon Marketplace> (A Private Cosmos) with Richard Petty <lots of Petty stuff at Amazon.com> (who would be Philip Jose Farmer in this metaphor) and Petty would put the pedal to the metal. Metaphorically, there are some pit stops, but racing along as you will be in with those expert racing skills of Petty/Farmer, you won't really notice the pit stops. There is one consolation..., you're a passenger. So you actually can take a deep breath and admire the scenery if your racing heart allows it. (while you're at it, buy the next book in the series at amazon marketplace... join up for smile and amazon donates some money to your favorite charity)

“Bellers” are the “nasties” in this outing. You'll need to read to understand. The plot is similar to the invasion of the body snatchers (You may find that on Amazon Instant Video). You know what kind of tension that scenario gives people.

Bad news.... no ebook, no audio. I was able to pick up a hardback of World of Tiers (the first 5 novels) for very reasonable at Amazon marketplace... great seller, book in excellent condition, so there is that at least. Happy adventures..., next stop, Terra Firma (aka Earth), in “Behind the Walls of Terra.
