The Alley God

by Philip José Farmer
Release date: 1962
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fiction, short stories

Philip José Farmer demonstrates, in these three short novels, the ability that has made him one of America's best-selling science fiction authors. He succeeds with remarkable skill in blending excitement and humor with sheer imagination in this splendid demonstration of his talent. ”The Alley Man”: the last living Neanderthal Man, grubbing out a living from the garbage heaps that covers the earth. ”The Captain's Daughter”: unknown illness strikes aboard a spaceship and the ship's doctor discovers a strange parasite that lives on sexual excitement. ”The God Business”: things go wrong in a modern Olympus and the U.S. Marines find themselves defeated by nudists with water pistols and a strange superbaby.
