Captain the Honourable Sir Herbert Stephen Ernest Boring-Tristram-Boring (known to his friends as Bill) is very rich but very bored.
When famous explorer Alfred Tence* shows up at his front door, life gets considerably more exciting. Before long, he's speeding off in a taxi to the mountains of Chilistan in search of the hairiest, most mysterious monster ever known - an ABOMINABLE SNOWMAN!
A fantastically funny short story from the collection Dragons at Crumbling Castle.
[*Yes, that Alfred Tence - the same man who punted from Brighton to Bombay in the bath. It's true.]
