The Gnarly Man by L. Sprague de Camp This Gnarly Man fellow is a fortuitous survivor from the old, old days. He’s been a lot of places and worked competently at a great variety of jobs over the last fifty millennia; when we meet him, he’s getting by as an ape-man act in a sideshow at Coney Island. He passes for current folk well enough in civilization, and skates officialdom by having used a long succession of false identities. At the moment he’s going by the name of Clarence, and has papers for it. Story in voice.
