When I was home around Christmas time, I took the opportunity of having no classes or work to read some really dorky books. (I wrote out one of the books back of the book summary already.)
These books were really impressively dorky, and I’d like to share some of the great quotes from them.
When all was quiet again, he closed the door and turned back to her, and saw that she had shed her bikini and was waiting for him.
“No dice,” he said.
Three hours later, he found Valetti.
It was in the Brighton morgue.
The face was round and babyish; the eyes were those of a disillusioned old man.
“A pity. Do you know the term ‘berserker,’ Mr. Durell? I am a berserker. A Viking filled with the lust for blood. Your blood.”
“If you can imagine your own problems in detection multiplied by infinity, and laced with a thousand indescribably important technical details, then you will realise something of the task which confronts a Time Warden,” said Chronol.
“It sounds rather frightening,” he said. “Time and Space mean nothing to the killer from Tomorrow.”
Reality was a ship that defied reality, and he was in it – a passenger of the Time Warden. He shook his head slowly.
“You’ve been mixed up with things natural and supernatural. You also, quite recently, got yourself tangled up with a rather strange planet.”
“Oh, you mean the adventure which my friend Bron Fane chronicled under the title The Intruders,” answered Val.
Bron Fane is the AUTHOR of this book, and referenced another one of his books in this book. That is amazing!
But, a quick wikipedia search has now confused me … Apparently Bron Fane is a pseudonym that was used by Lionel Fanthorpe, a British priest (Somewhere Out There did have a clearly pro-Christian part). Fanthorpe wrote for Badger Books which had a number of pseudonyms that any of their authors could pick up and use. SO, the author was referencing himself … but possibly a different person.
