Philip José Farmer Æ 1 READ & DOWNLOAD Ed accepting Western's invitation Patricia arrived She explained the circumstances of her father's mysterious death after he'd developed the MEDIUM prototype with Western's financial aid of attempts that had been made on her life obstensibly on his orders after she threatened exposure Carfax decides to use his free demonstration to contact her father's spirit departs for LA his 1st meeting with Weste. I’ve long considered Farmer to be a hit or miss author When he’s good he’s brilliant but when he’s bad he’s dreadful This novel occupies the middle ground I didn’t find it as dull as many other reviewers seem to think but it certainly doesn’t hit the heights achieved by Farmer in novels such as LORD TYGER and TO YOUR SCATTERED BODIES GO The third in the Harold Childe trilogy it lacks the explicit and graphic weirdness of its predecessors THE IMAGE OF THE BEAST and BLOWN and has in conseuence less of an impact Also the theme of the dead being contacted via a machine is so intriguing and poses so many uestions about how society would respond that it probably deserves a better treatment than this which amounts to little than a detective thriller A missed opportunity then Reasonably entertaining but without anything memorable about it
