I don’t know why exactly, looked at this cover and i thought Aquarius man! Maybe it was the slightly hysteric tone of the coverline? So then i looked up Philip Jose Farmer and voila, he was an Aquarius!
His Wiki quotes a critic as saying that he “manages to be at once naive and sophisticated in his odd blending of theology, pornography, and adventure”. That’s so Aqua as well.
One of his novels is called Jesus On Mars. You’d think someone would option that on strength of the title alone. I would unhesitatingly cast Joaquin Phoenix in the lead. And you?
