NOTE: From 1970 until about 1973, when the impetus died out, Grobius Shortling
and his brother Celius carried on a correspondence regarding the Planet Blenkinsop.
The separate files number in the 70s. To organize and cull this mass of information
would be a major undertaking, which I am not proposing to do at this time (or any!).
However, from time to time I will extract some items and publish them on this Web
The Story of Bettylou
has already been online since 1996, as have pages about the
Moons and some of the
Characters of Blenkinsop.
This site will contain extracts from various files that will explain some of the curious
topography, history, and taxonomy of this planet. The many graphics developed in
this correspondence are, regrettably, omitted as they were mostly done in pencil
and are not easily reproducible.* The central focus of the Blenkinsop papers is the
interplanetary cartel known as the Mallowfat & Fagg corporation.--Grobius Shortling (Sept 1997)
* However, a rough-drawn map of the planet will be included eventually.
This site has been in a frames format since 1998, but having been promulgated to various servers (some with banner ads, etc.) there have been problems with viewing format. This is the new introductory menu. -- GS (March 2001)
