Crossing the Dark River
Genre Science Fiction
Type Novella
Series Riverworld
Part 1, followed by "Up the Bright River".
Phil used –for both stories– some of the ideas from his outline for a never written 'sidestream' Riverworld novel, Riverworld Dawn.
DESCRIPTION:
Trapped in a feud between Vikings and Monguls, a failed idealist and a crazed surrealist must become bizarre partners on a desperate spiritual quest...
Farmer used some of his direct ancestors from real (past) life as characters in the story, like doctor Andrew P. Davis, Ann Pullen and the Viking, Ivar the Boneless.
