Never read any of those books, but my thoughts go out to his family.

This a great loss to the SCI-FI community.  I remember reading Riverworld when I was in grade school and was totally engrossed in those books.  The Sci-Fi channel movie they did a few years ago was a good try at it but they could have done better........A LOT BETTER REALLY.  Goodbye Phillip and may you wake up on RIVERWORLD and begin your next journey!!  Hopefully someday I wil be there too and we can ride that great riverboat to the end of the river together!!
