Book II of Riverworld. A world of resurrection where every soul who ever lived is brought back to indefinite life – where death is a momentary inconvenience. A world of peace and the end of all fear? By no mean. Among the billions clawing through warfare, slavery and violent aggression is Sam Clemens, alias Mark Twain. Sam’s dream is to build a Mississippi-style paddle wheeler ad to find the source of the River, resurrected Man’s focus and Riverworld’s artery. But even with the aid of one of the mysterious beings responsible for Riverworld and of Sam’s Neanderthal blood-brother, he is hard put to bring his dream to life. There are others – King John, for example – who will stop at nothing to steal the Fabulous Riverboat…Cover art by Peter Jones.
