World of Tiers (#6)
Wold Newton Universe
Also published as an eBook (2012).
The sixth novel in the series was first announced by Philip José Farmer with the title Kickaha's World. Farmer then also announced a never written seventh novel, The Garden of Evil.
DEDICATION: "To Lynn and Julia Carl, Gary Wolfe, and Dede Weil."
COVER TEXT:
Kickaha, an Earthman, travels, fights, loves his way across the pocket universes. He is the implacable enemy of the decadent and arrogant Lords, a combatant who could have stepped out of the pages of Joseph Campbell's The Hero With a Thousand Faces. And Kickaha's greatest and most deadly foe is the Lord, Red Orc.
Now, in More Than Fire, Farmer concludes this epic series with the ultimate battle between Kickaha and Red Orc, with the entire existence of the pocket universes at stake. The long-awaited climax of one of the most popular and long-running adventure series in the history of science fiction is a colorful, complex, bloodthirsty, sexy explosion. The fast-paced story spans many worlds of wonder, reveals many secrets of the history of the World of Tiers, and ends with a shout of victory.
