''Riverworld'' is a novel series by Creator/PhilipJoseFarmer detailing the adventures of humanity in a world reshaped into one long river-valley. All humans that have ever been born are mysteriously restored to life with a body in its prime, and left to live in this world. There are no ores to make tools more advanced than Paleolithic, so humans are incapable of getting to the other side of the mountains that block the sides of the river. Humans that are killed awaken the next day somewhere else on the river.
The novels are told from the perspective of different characters, the first is centered around Sir Richard Francis Burton and the second; [[Creator/MarkTwain Samuel Langhorn Clemens]].

There was also a {{GURPS}} setting adapting the novels (copies of it were given to the writers of the anthology stories as references), a video game and two adaptations on Creator/{{Syfy}}. Aside from the basic concepts, neither had much to do with the original.
