      A retired professor Robert Wolff was looking at the house he wanted to buy. Suddenly in the closet a portal to another world appeared with a guy on the other side blowing a horn. The portal was quickly closing, but not before the mysterious stranger threw Wolff the horn. To make a long story short it was possible to open the portal again at the same place (closet) using that musical instrument. Wolff did and found a paradise, so did not think twice about leaving behind his boring retired life an [...]

      As an exercise in world building, World of Tiers is very interesting. That's about it, though. I enjoyed it on a pulpy quick read level. However, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone looking for a deep involving novel.The PlotRobert Wolff is a retired linguistics professor looking at homes to buy in Arizona. While inspecting a room alone, a gate to the world of tiers opens before him. He steps through and finds a world where mermaids and nymphs exist. After a few weeks of eating the food and drinki [...]

      I'm re-reading this now after finally completing the series. It's been almost 40 years since I first read it, so I'll see if it keeps its 4 star rating (I doubt it), but I HAVE to find out how the entire story winds up.The re-read was great. There are some holes in the story, but it still stands as a fun, quick read. It's still a fairly unique adventure story that is based on SF, but has some fantasy elements, sort of. -----------For years, I considered it a good, stand-alone, novel. I still thi [...]

      I thought I liked Philip Jose Farmer, I really did, but maybe I am wrong.I remember being blown away by this series when I first read it many years back, but revisiting it I can't believe how awful some of this is. The writing isn't terrible per se, and the plot is decent. Earthling is transported to another world, cruel overlord has taken over, must climb through the universe to find the creator and take him down. The twist at the end is not a huge surprise, and despite the fantastic creatures [...]

      Philip José Farmer, Il fabbricante di universi (The maker of universe, 1965)Ennesimo romanzo sugli universi paralleli, del genere che un tempo si sarebbe chiamato Avventura.Insomma, è scritto bene, c'è azione, ci sono continue scazzottate, assomiglia al classico fantasy gruppo-che-ha-un'impresa-da-compiere, ma non ha nient'altro. Niente di niente. A metà delle circa 250 pagine sbadigliavo e non vedevo l'ora che finisse. Fortunatamente è finito.Peccato, perché l'inizio che descrive il prota [...]

      I loved how the book started with a whisper, in a very mundane setting. Also I really loved the orientation sequence to the fantasy world. There was some other good stuff throughout. I have still have a lot of trouble grasping and keeping track of weird fantasy names though, like in the Hobbit. At some point in this book, I found myself reading about centaurs, and I couldn’t remember them being introduced. A little later it was bird knights or something and I couldn’t remember when they had [...]

    • Traci says:

      I have read so many books from this era with this similiar plot. I'm sure you know it well too. The Narnia/Wizard of Oz/Alice in Wonderland theme of a modern day character unsatisfied with life being transported to a magical world. I may have read it before but this is one of the better ones. Nice writing and world building. Doesn't really stand up to current fantasy or science fiction but an above average example of the golden age of pulp. Recommended to both fans of fantasy and science fiction [...]

    • Jack says:

      Been awhile but I remember searching all over to find (remember) this series, I could only remember kickaha or something like that to go on my search on finding these again this was before the computer era of everything at your fingertip's. Fun read kind of like the Amber series but different heh' 4-6 in series and everyone just pulls you along, and end's up in "our" world if I remember right. best be on the re-read shelf'

    • Kiri says:

      Disappointing, largely because I remember enjoying this book so much in middle school. Reading it now, I can't get past the poor characterization and the growing sense that this whole series is just fantasy fulfillment for a middle-aged white guy. (How did this not annoy me as a teen girl?) The world-building is the best part; the World of Tiers is fascinating. I remember reading eagerly for the adventure, the challenging puzzles, and the wit and cleverness of Kickaha - but so far, I'm 100 pages [...]

    • Millguy says:

      I didn't really like the book, it seemed very dated, but it was possibly ahead of its time when it came out. However, it fails to hold my interest because it focuses on fighting and adventuring instead of characterization. Some random thoughts: It contains fight scenes that make my eyes glaze over. The bits with the creature where they mention the Lord reminded me of The Island of Doctor Moreau. The people stealing from the lord by sneaking into his palace and getting the dimension hopping devic [...]

    • Anthony Wong says:

      i have not read this author before, in spite of me being a sci fi fan. but having read him now, i am not surprised i do not know this guy. his is in the tradition of rice burroughs, hero landing in a primitive world , and grappling with the villians and the nubile females. the book i got is a compilation of 3 of the novels in this series. i did not like it and could not finish the series. too boring.

    • Timothy Boyd says:

      Great fantasy/SiFi series. Farmer is one of my top 5 favorite writers. Very recommended

    • Velvetink says:

      Really liked it when I read it growing up. Have to read it again to comment though.

Going through it, he finds a bizarre world of stacked disks on a spindle, full of danger, weird environments, and beautiful women.Review:Pretty much my entire, limited knowledge of Philip Jose Farmer comes from the Riverworld series. I thought those books were mostly very good. But it turns out that the bits I didn’t like – the macho tone, the occasional lack of [...]

    • Greg Frederick says:

      I read this because after finishing The Great Book of Amber I learned that the World Of Tiers series had a great influence on Roger Zelazny. Since I already had this sitting on the shelf, I went for it.This was definitely a product if its time, where men are macho and women are either nagging, becoming hysterical, or just being eye candy. Farmer strays a bit from this archetype, but not far. That said, it was not enough to put me off from thoroughly enjoying this grand adventure story.I am a big [...]

    • Nickolas says:

      Released in 1965, this is a fun adventure fantasy that combines elements of Homer, Quatermain, Tolkien, King Arthur and other classic influences. It’s a bit corny at times and can come across as a bad B movie at points but it was an enjoyable read. There is also some confusing gaping holes and a rushed feel in many places particularly I. The end that an author wouldn’t get away with today but oh well. Looking forward to the second in the series. Thanks Sergiy for the recommendation.

    • Braxiatel says:

      I have no idea what this author is trying to do. Great ideas, nonsensical plot and nonexistent ending.

    • Sergey Grinev says:

      not as exciting as it were during my teen age :)

    • Щерян Николаев says:

      Impressive book, read it long time ago, re-read June 2017. Has a good story, really well described characters and just was amazing.When you start to read it you can't stop :)

    • Ralph Carlson says:

      A great read. Have always loved Farmer, whom I haven't read in years, and decided it was time to correct that.

    • Stelios says:

      3 1/2 stars.

    • Will Emmons says:

      It's Phil's centennial, and I plan to read 24 books by him this year. (2/month). This is the second I've finished.PJF is my favorite SF author--not because I think he's the best who ever wrote, but because I think he had big ideas and I feel some kind of kinship with him across time and space that I think flows from being weird guys from small towns in middle America. His preoccupations with religion, sex, and society resonate with meE GOOD:In this novel, there were moments where Phil's cleverne [...]

    • Jerry says:

      The writing is a fairly standard old-school sword and planet, with all the greatness and problems of the genre. But Farmer puts it on top of very cool worlds, the “world of tiers”. There is also a neat twist at the end. If it had been written in 1955 instead of 1965, it would have been more awesome.The world is basically a D&D dungeon, without the dungeon: that is, levels of danger set above-ground instead of below. Unfortunately, even though that’s the draw of the book, we really don [...]

      The Maker of Universes, Philip Jose FarmerSpoiler Alert. Following any hyperlinks could lead to spoilers. 4 stars. As I remember it, ages ago it was 5 stars. And I'm sure it could be either. This is Philip Jose Farmer after all. And this World of Tiers series is one of his best, and The Maker of Universes, is the novel that launched the series. The World of Tiers series was also inspirational for Roger Zelanzy's famous fantasy Amber series. An author in Philip Jose Farmer's day was in high deman [...]

    • Tom Britz says:

      The Maker of Universes is an adventure science fantasy novel. Published in 1965, it doesn't really feel dated, though there are quite a few things I thought wrong with it. The beginning seemed a bit hokey, with the character, Bob Wolfe, who is in his mid to late 60's and married to a shrew of a woman, while looking at a house to buy in Arizona as a retirement home, hears a trumpet call, thought muted as if from far away. Thinking he was losing his mind, he nonetheless opens the door of a closet [...]

      My niece and her husband recommend PJF to me, particularly the Riverworld series. This is from a different series but free and found from the local transfer station. So far seems reminiscent of "The Time Machine". Well written and engaging. I'm not sure the cover illustration is accurate.- autenreith? - I'll look it up!Almost finished last night but bedtime came upon me. It's interesting to compare this with other, similar series of tales that are more or less in the same genre. Dan Simmons' Hyp [...]

      Although the word "universes" here is a bit misused. But, dudes made some crazy ass worlds, so there is that.I've wanted to read some PJF (can I call him "PJF"?) for ages. His name is one of those greats that always seems to eventually come up in any discussion I read that goes back any length of time. And now I've done so. Huzzah. 'Tis a year for many such huzzahs. Whatever.So. This was OK. Kinda basic travelogue style fantasy with your typical (now, at least) gateway character that, in this ca [...]

    • Sean says:

      Many who have reviewed this book dismiss it as young adult fiction, but I fear that label functions as a means for them to justify the immersive and original fantasy world that Farmer develops at the expense of more "adult" content such as complex characters or plot. I enjoy Fantasy and Sword and Sorcery books when they are able to create an original, believable and yet insane world as a backdrop for their characters. It also helps to have some unique monsters, monsters from before Orks became a [...]
