DEDICATION: "This collection is dedicated by Philip José Farmer to the brave men of SF, who have worked so tirelessly to see that this book could see print: Rick Beaulieu, Jason Robert Bell, Charles Berlin, Christopher Carey, Mike Croteau, Keith Howell, Craig Kimber, Tracy Knight, Paul Spiteri, Mario Zecca. All true fans and friends of Philip José Farmer."
Alas, by mistake four names of "the brave men of SF" were omitted from the list in the final edition: Lee J. Barrie, Roger Crombie, Win Scott Eckert and Zacharias L.A. Nuninga, who are also true fans and friends of Farmer!
COVER TEXT:
An outstanding and unique collection from an outstanding and unique talent. Philip José Farmer, three time Hugo winner and Nebula Grand Master in 2001, has written exciting and provocative fiction since his debut, the ground breaking "The Lovers," stunned the SF community in 1952. Pearls from Peoria assembles over sixty previously uncollected pieces of fiction, nonfiction, poetry and autobiography that demonstrate the extraordinary range and vitality of Philip José Farmer's imagination. Many of the pieces appear here for the first time anywhere, while others have previously appeared only in small run magazines that have remained elusive and avidly sought after by Farmer aficionados.
