Luff Imbry, confidence man, thief, forger extraordinaire, aficionado of a myriad art forms, began life as a supporting character in my novel Black Brillion. He reappeared again in the same role in a companion novel, The Commons.

And that should have been the end of him. In fact, in the original draft of Black Brillion, I killed him off in a rather messy fashion near the end of the novel. But my editor advised me that it was a mistake to murder the only likeable character in the book. So I rewrote that segment and Luff lived on.

I wrote more stories, and they each found a market. Luff appeared not only in Postscripts but in The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction and an anthology of stories entitled Forbidden Planets that was commissioned to mark the fiftieth anniversary of the iconic science fiction film.

PS, commissioned four Luff Imbry novellas, each of which was issued a limited-edition chapbook.

This is the Fourth of those . . .

Art forger and corpulent master criminal Luff Imbry travels from Old Earth down The Spray to the skinflint world of New Gargano to trade some of his counterfeit confections for a pouchful of the fabulous gems called noubles. But Imbry is not the only one with duplicity in mind, and soon the fat man finds himself imprisoned on a nameless world where the only question is whether he ll dwindle to a lifeless husk before or after he goes irretrievably insane.
