The Dark Design
The inhabitants of the Riverworld try to deal with the mechanical breakdown of the planet, including the cessation of ressurections. This book combines the storylines of the two previous novels. One thread deals with Richard Burton and crew travelling along the river. Another thread deals with those left behind when Mark Twain boarded the Fabulous Riverboat. These people decide to build an airship and fly it to the Ethical headquarters at the north pole. A third storyline deals with a voyage by Jack London, Tom Mix, and a sufi up the river, again in service of the mysterious stranger.
