Ishmael, lone survivor of the doomed whaling ship Pequod, falls through a rift in time and space to a future Earth - an Earth of blood-sucking vegetation and a blood-red sun, of barren canyons where once the Pacific Ocean roared. Here too there are whales to hunt - but whales that soar through a dark blue sky....

Hugo Award-winner Philip José Farmer spins a fascinating tale of whaling ships and sailors of the sky in a bizarre future world where there are no seas to sail and no safe harbor to call home....

Unrated Critic Reviews for The Wind Whales of Ishmael

Starburst Magazine

Anybody who thought Ishmael’s story was over at the end of Moby Dick has clearly never read The Wind Whales of Ishmael, the novel where Philip José Farmer takes the whaler with the snappy moniker and dumps him in a time period so far in advance of his own that the sea itself is mostly dried out.
