Note from Allan: Here are two delicious little tales from Frank Gessel, a great friend and a long-time Sten fan. They feature Chetwynd, a tough as steel rogue Sten first met on a Than prison planet in Sten #3 - The Court Of A Thousand Suns. He encountered him again in Sten #5 -Revenge Of The Damned, where Chetwynd aided Sten and Alex in their fight against the Tahn. Frank has this to say about himself: "The Author is a retired Firefighter who has been a science fiction fan since first learning to read and has been a STEN fan for many years. A native of Ohio, he spends his winters in Florida enjoying the sun and is often been known to say that “the only ice he wishes to see is that in a cold drink.”
