Philip José Farmer: Cover Gallery

My collection of books by Philip José Farmer is patchy but shows some of the diversity of his work, ranging from classics like To Your Scattered Bodies Go - winner of the Hugo Award - to biographies of Tarzan and Doc Savage. You can find more information on Farmer at his Wikipedia entry.
