Toby Frost studied law and currently works as a legal journalist. Unable to become Great Britain's foremost space explorer, he wrote the Space Captain Smith series, a set of six comedies about intrepid galactic explorer Isambard Smith and his barely-competent crew.

Toby has also written short stories and the novel Straken for Black Library, set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe.

He has recently started a series of fantasy novels, the first two of which - Up To The Throne and Blood Under Water - are now available. He is currently working on the third in the series.

Toby Frost liked an answer about Titus Groan:
Titus Groan by Mervyn Peake

Toby Frost liked an answer about Titus Groan:
Titus Groan by Mervyn Peake
Crikey!
I'm not even going to try to answer the first part of the question because:
1/ It would probably take an entire essay to do the job properly.
2/ I don't subscribe to Tolstoy's notions of what constitutes "good" and "bad" art. And
3/ I strongly See The’s answer.

“We do not make mistakes. Surrender at once! Resistance is fertile!"
"Don't you mean futile?"
