Some Miscellaneous Data about the Planet Blenkinsop

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 Site. 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. Here is the new non-frames version. -- GS (March 2001)

This is the Home Page for Information about the Planet Blenkinsop. There is a wealth of material about this place, but only a limited amount is available on the Internet at this time.

The Blenkinsop Archives are full of castles, but they are pretty much unscannable so you won't see many of them unless they get redrafted for the Internet. This is Mallowfat and Fagg Castle(s).
