Good read. That dude was a total bad ass.
He deserves a mention here: http://www.thebestpageintheuniverse.net ... u=real_menFor all its bravura, Mr. Fairfax’s seafaring almost pales beside his earlier ventures. Footloose and handsome, he was a flesh-and-blood character out of Graham Greene, with more than a dash of Hemingway and Ian Fleming shaken in.
At 9, he settled a dispute with a pistol. At 13, he lit out for the Amazon jungle.
At 20, he attempted suicide-by-jaguar. Afterward he was apprenticed to a pirate.
I don't have a lot of experience with vampires, but I have hunted werewolves. I shot one once, but by the time I got to it, it had turned back into my neighbor's dog.

I remember this guy. It was a big deal back when I was in Vietnam - lots of press. I've caught bits and pieces about him since - the guy was quite a story. Suicide by jaguar - a good one to convince terrorists to try perhaps??? :)
