The Dead Men Diaries
Who but Professor Bernice Summerfield, interstellar archaeologist, raconteur, boozer and wit, would get other people to write her autobiography albeit under threat of death from two bounty hunters sent by a publisher far too concerned about little things like deadlines?
These stories are an ideal introduction to the life of Bernice Summerfield: falling off cliffs, getting sacrificed to orange pygmies, saving the universe and trying to buy a new frock. Cliffhanging escapes! Adventure on distant planets! Scones for tea!
- The Dead Men Diaries was the title of Bernice Summerfield’s autobiography. It was written “under duress”, as her publisher had sent along two bounty hunters, Mr Plurk and Mr Scozz, to ensure that she finished by her deadline.
- Instead of writing about her life, Benny searched the Galaxy Wide Web for accounts written by others, then gathered them into book form for her autobiography.
