Henry outside court

"I have been shipwrecked, subjected to disease, chased by drugs traffickers, and fed by the chief of a clan of head-hunters. I've been to places where no white man has ever been. I'm proud to have extended the boundaries of science."
'Henry Azadehdel' at the Old Bailey

"Henry is an enigma and I am confident that he will always remain mysterious and unknowable."
Eric Hansen, Orchid Fever

"Black bearded with intense dark eyes, he is in his own mind a romantic figure stranded in the 20th Century."
The Sunday Telegraph

"Events provoke stories but it is far more likely that stories provoke events."
Bill Ellis, Legends We Live
