Flesh File 1: 'A Letter From Arthur Raymond'
Flesh File: 'A Letter From Arthur Raymond'
Free with 2000 A.D. Prog 96, 97 & 98
20 Jan 79
Arthur Raymond takes time out of his busy day to write to new employees of Trans Time.
FIRSTS & LASTS
First Trans Time internal documentation.
Trans Time is the only supplier of fresh meat and fish in the 23rd century. Arthur Raymond is the Company Chairman.
The company motto is: time is money. Pay is docked if an employee catches less than the average ration of Flesh. Catching more does not earn a bonus.
Time travel is expensive and hazardous to health, travellers are required to take 'Time-Pills' daily.
One in three Trans Time employees has a serious accident. Any employee found in breach of discipline will face the laser lash. The Golden Rule of Dinosaur hunting is: if in doubt, get out.
CONTINUITY & CROSSOVERS
Is Arthur Raymond one of the huge foreheaded Flesh Controllers seen in the 23rd Century sequences of Flesh, Book 1?
INFLUENCES & REFERENCES
The letter has a great tone and it's great to see more of 23rd Century Trans Time.
