The Dungeon Philip José Farmers The Dungeon #1 2Struck and so on and so forth13 linesHe braced Sidi Bombay s staff against the walls of the fissure stuck Horace Hamilton Smythe s revolver into his waistband Thus I would only recommend reading it if you have nothing to do on an elevator open the book on any page and you re sure not to be missing any relevant infoAdditionally the actual book has obviously been made from re sure not to be missing any relevant infoAdditionally the actual book has obviously been made from discards so the first book ends at page 339 has several pages of sketches then there are some roman numeraled pages of introduction to the second book and then numeraled pages of introduction to the second book and then have page 1 again which makes navigation annoying This was all good and fine on hand typed russian bootlegs in the days when napproved books were forbidden but this is just silly Sometime in the mid 1980 s Philip Jose Farmer came p with the concept of The Dungeon a six part saga of Clive Folliot searching bizarre worlds for his missing brother and turned other writers loose on it The Black Tower Major Clive Folliot leaves his post in the army and his lover behind in order to go to euatorial Africa to search for his missing brother

Along the way he runs of shady gamblers meets an old friend of his Horace Hamilton Smythe and a new friend Sidi BombayHowever once Clive gets to Africa he finds his journey has just begun when he is plunged into another world The Dungeon and has to contend with its mysterious inhabitants while searching for his missing brotherThe concept of The Dungeon is remniscent of both Riverworld and the World of Tiers two PJF favorites People are plucked from various worlds and time periods and whisked to the worlds of the Dungeon to take part in some kind of cosmic chess game. S a planet Clive Foliott faces a fantastic world of dwarves cyborgs and aliens nlike anything he has ever imagined It is a multi leveled collection of beings from. .

I have read this book a long time ago 10 years or but remember absolutely nothing about it so it must have been pretty nremarkable therefore the 2 stars rating reviewing an edition which only had the first two books in itThe first two books of the series I ve read the first and a small chunk OF THE SECOND BEFORE GIVING UP ENTIRELYTHE STORY IS the second before giving p entirelyThe story is at best The characters are one dimentional to the point of absurdity The writing is extremely friendly to dyslexics people with the attention span of nder 2 ms and the like but for my 3ms attention span it s too much Here s a samplenote for comparison the book is formatted so that each line is about 48 characters long the following is the compressed text of the end of page 120 to page 122 of the first book just barely than 2 pagesalso note there is exactly one firearm ever mentioned in the entire book and it s an excrutiatingly described revolver belonging to Sgt Horace Hamilton Smythe Excrutiating both due to the detail and due to the freuency of that detailed description which is once every handful of pagesIf he lost his grip there would be no help from Sidi Bombay or Horace Hamilton Smythe two lines laterAnother fifteen or twenty yards Clive saw Horace Hamilton Smythe 8 lines peering pward at Horace or twenty yards Comece por você up saw Horace Hamilton Smythe 8 lines peeringpward at Horace Smythe about 2 lines down Horace tosses his pistol to Clivefor the next 22 lines the pistol falls16 lines of the trigger actually being sueezed11 lines of describing the target as seen in the muzzle flash but this is actually justified since we haven t read THIS description yetAnd then as thatr fleeting flash of light faded the bullet fired from Horace Hamilton Smythe s American revolver. The return of a classic shared world fantasy series created by Philip Jose Farmer award winning author of the Riverworld saga Plunging into a vast prison that span. The worlds are odd and straight out of PJF I m sure Richard A Lupoff knew what Farmer had in mind when he conceived the Dungeon and tried to stay close to the blueprintI ve never heard of Richard A
before this ndertaking His prose okay Nothing to shout about but most of pjf s is the but most of PJF s is the wayThe characters are fairly well done I know both Smythe and Bombay are still hiding things Folliot isn t as skilled as most PJF heroes but the devotion to his brother keeps him going Finnbogg the humanoid bulldog is an endearing sort I hope nothing ghastly happens to him before series end I have to say I wasn t surprised by User Annie s true identity It seemed obviousThe Dark Abyss The Dark Abyss starts minutes after the conclusion of The Black Tower Clive and friends flee the Black Tower and travel to layers of the Dungeon still on the trail of Clive s brother and the missing Sidi Bombay Along the way Clive earns the nickname Serpent Slayer and a strange relationship developes between he and ShriekThe Dark Abyss was better written than the Black Tower and exciting Clive and company continuously go from one peril to the next The layers explored in the Dark Abyss were exotic than those in the previous volume My two favorite parts of this volume involve Shriek the humanoid spider woman The image of the assembled party climbing down Shriek s spider silk rope toward the ocean below was spectacular The bestweirdest part was the strange telepathic love blossoming between Clive and Shriek Though I was initially disgusted part of me was hoping those two would hook pThe only complaint I had was that Annie s dialogue was nothing like it was in the first book. The hidden folds of time and space Trapped somewhere inside is Neville Foliott Clive's twin brother and no creature in the Dungeon will stop Clive from finding hi.
