Star Well

Anthony Villiers: Book 1

Alexei Panshin

A small airless planetoid set deep in the heart of the Flammarion Rift. Due to its location, it is a minor hub of commerce within the Sashuite Empire, and though it is equipped with elegant dining rooms and casinos, luxury suites and expensive shops, Wu and Fabricant's GUIDEBOOK claims that Star Well is a dull place to visit and that travellers should avoid layovers if they can. But Wu and Fabricant had not been shown the secret basements, nor told the nature of the things stored there--if they had been, they might still have advised against layovers, but not because Star Well was dull. When our hero Anthony Villiers and his Traggish friend Torve arrive on the scene, it soon becomes evident that the truth must out: that Star Well has reached the end of an era...

The Thurb Revolution

Anthony Villiers: Book 2

Alexei Panshin

The little-known, backwater planet Pewamo seemed an unlikely site for bomb-throwers, pornographers and maniacs- yet ask Admiral Beagle, ever-watchful for the moral safety of his world, and he would tell you that such unsavory individuals were collecting in droves on Pewamo.

Normally Pewamo was the habitat of slumberous vacationers and odd pink clouds that floated idly overhead and didn't bother anybody - but then Anthony Villiers arrived.bringing his obdurately alien companion Torve the Trog, and Pewamo would never be the same again.

Strange sounds were heard regularly in the night. Villiers spoke in riddles when questioned by Admiral Beagle. Torve the Trog rode his speedy red tricycle on obscure missions. And somehow an army gathered around them.

But not even Villiers knew that one of the men he'd attracted was an assassin, sent to kill him...

Masque World

Anthony Villiers: Book 3

Alexei Panshin

The third and sadly the last of the documented adventures of Anthony Villiers, gentleman adventurer and his traveling companion, Torve the Trog. I'm not sure I know what goes on in this one, but I don't mind -- and neither will you. The Villiers books are Comedy of Manners set in Space. They are ridiculous, irreverent, and highly amusing.
