The Fabulous Riverboat
Genre Science Fiction
Type Novel
Series Riverworld #2
Based on "The Felled Star" (1967) and "The Fabulous Riverboat" (1971).
Nominated for the Locus Award (1972 - Best Novel: 8th).
Also published as an Audio Book (2009) and as an eBook (in an omnibus in 2010 and solo in 2012).
DEDICATION: "For the unholy trinity of Bobs: Bloch, Heinlein, and Traurig—may I meet them on the banks of the River, where we'll board the fabulous Riverboat."
COVER TEXT:
Resurrected on the lush, mysterious banks of Riverworld, along with the rest of humanity, Samuel Longhorne Clemens (a.k.a. Mark Twain) has a dream: to build a riverboat that will rival the most magnificent paddle-wheelers ever to navigate the mighty Mississippi. Then, to steer it up the endless waterway that dominates his new home planet — and at last discover its hidden source.
But before he can carry out his plan, he first must undertake a dangerous voyage to unearth a fallen meteor. This mission would require striking an uneasy alliance with the bloodthirsty Viking Erik Bloodaxe, treacherous King John of England, legendary French swordsman Cyrano de Bergerac, Greek adventurer Odysseus, and the infamous Nazi Hermann Göring. All for the purpose of storming the ominous stone tower at the mouth of the river, where the all-powerful overseers of Riverworld —and their secrets— lie in wait...
(Ballantine/Del Rey)

Indicated on the copyright page as the third printing from 1979. It is actually the fourth printing from 1980. This printing is not mentioned in any of the later printings. It is odd also that the book is somewhat smaller than any of the other printings.
