ANTHONY VILLIERS, sometime-Viscount, is a sort of travelling
adventurer/gambler/private eye, a kind of interplanetary Simon
Templar, with a bit of Bret Maverick tossed in, living
off his wits. He's young and slight of build, but that doesn't
seem to stop him, or his faithful companion, Torve the Trog, a
large furry toad who rides a red tricycle, from wandering the
universe, having wildly improbable adventures rescuing fair maidens
and thwarting the bad guys. A combination of The Brothers Grimm,
The Rockford files, and Star Trek.

Freely adapted from the original article, from way back in 1990,
that I did for WARP, a local sci-fi newsletter, that was
my first attempt to deal with the Vulcan mind-meld of the science
fiction and P.I. genres. I was so much older then; I'm younger
than that now...
