Wyoming native Guy Worthey traded spurs and lassos for telescopes and computers when he decided to pursue astrophysics. Whenever he temporarily escapes the gravitational pull of stars and galaxies, he writes fiction, now in the slightly less rectangular state of Washington.

He plays jazz bass and happily stretches genre boundaries to find common musical ground with his classical violinist wife Diane.

A beacon of inclusivity in a fractured world, he likes both cats and dogs. Creamed eggs on toast is the earthy name of his favorite food, but once in a while he samples the celestial delights of chocolate.

The Hero’s Journey versus Agents’ Advice

The hero’s journey plot outline (or “Joseph Campbell monomyth”) can be split into ordinary world (the hero’s normal world, steps 1-5 and 14-17) and extraordinary world (a relatively alien place the hero must travel in, steps 6-13). It can also be split into three acts: (1) separation, (2) initiation, and (3) return. In act one, the hero is driven to tackle the challenges posed by the extraordinary

Compared to the main Lensman novels, this one has a few spokes missing from the wheel. For some reason, although it's just the way it was, the 1950s patriarchal attitude bugged me more than average, as the hero inherits a nearly all-female crew and m ...more
