"Lenny Bailes travels in spirals; he's going somewhere good, but he's not
about to miss anything on the way by simply going straight ahead. Along
the path he's followed so far, Lenny has found comic books, science
fiction, fandom, fanzines, conventions, philosophers, paradigm shifts,
music, gafiation, and ultimate return...
He's a shy man who will ask if he can join the dinner party, then become
an indispensable guest... His first musical love was Gilbert & Sullivan,
who he says taught him to question authority..
He's soft-spoken. He's slyly funny. He believes in things and he won't
back down about them unless you convince him to do so with logic. He's a
polite pit bull about those things he considers ethical and good."
"He's a very focused, morally earnest, hardworking space cowboy."
