* According to Creator/JohnGrant, his ''Franchise/JudgeDredd'' novel ''The Hundredfold Problem'' contained "About half the UK science-fiction community of the time" (1994).

More of a TakeThat was the bewildered caveman Kr'sg'lm'r; Chris Gilmore had savaged Grant's fantasy novel ''The World'', so he got cast as a figure incapable of understanding ... the world.
