Wold Newton Universe (series)
This was not really intended by Phil Farmer as a series, but the protagonists of the stories share the same genetics, they are part of Farmer's Wold Newton Family (WNF). Farmer started the WNF with the two fictional biographies Tarzan Alive and Doc Savage: His Apocalyptic Life, the first two entries on the list below.
The other entries are chronologically sorted on first publication.
The WNF was expanded by others, especially thanks to Win Scott Eckert, into the Wold Newton Universe (WNU). The WNU includes works by Farmer, as well as by other authors. This list of Farmer's writings is based on Eckert's information in his book Myths for the Modern Age.
See for more information the links to the WNU websites.
