Kent Lane
Wold Newton Universe
DESCRIPTION:
Kent Lane is a private investigator, who is hired by the CACO. After one of his investigation strange things start to happen, for one thing his skin starts tingling. He also receives many strange phone calls, when there's nobody at the other end. Then people around him, like his beloved ones, start to die in strange accidents.
Philip José Farmer: «This story is about Love, which means that it is also about Hate. One of the themes that run through much of my work is that for every advantage you gain there is a disadvantage, that the gods, or whoever, require payment, that the universe in all its aspects, which include the human psyche, is governed by a check and balance system.»
