Z is for Zito #AtoZChallenge

Z is for Zito, from the Viridian System

In a Nutshell: He is one of very few big cheeses in the Viridian System, and part of the organising group (aka Council) on Pleasant Valley.  Basically the six most powerful/rich people get together whenever anything looks like causing trouble that would threaten their own interests.

Biggest secret: where he originally came from. Nobody knows, and he claims to have forgotten: “Most people have changed their identity at least once, so if you know you don’t know, you don’t have to remember a lie.”

Favourite line:  “I can get hold of anything for you except space hardware, and if you want that, I’ll introduce you to someone."

The Viridian System series will be resumed next year:
Book 1 - The Perihelix (an interview with the author about this is here).
Book 2 - Curved Space to Corsair
Book 3 - Zanzibar’s Rings

Check out the Viridian System Sampler - second edition (and update your copy if you bought the first) 


And...We made it! Congratulations on surviving another A to Z Challenge, whether you were blogging or "just" reading (which might be the toughest job of all). Thanks to everyone who has visited and left comments. I appreciate the support.


  1. Hi Rebecca - Zito of the big cheese - main man in the Viridian System ... sounds a good man to have on our side of the A-Z challenge ... well done on completing it - cheers Hilary

  2. This little bit you've shared about him brings to mind Dr. Who. Fond memories...

    1. I always think of him as Rick of Casablanca fame :)

      Thanks for sharing my characters in your AtoZ Rebecca. I'm honoured - as always.

    2. It was my pleasure! Especially since I stole your idea :D

      Yeah, I remember Zito first appeared in one of those bar stories you and I both like to write.

  3. Congrats on surviving another one! It isn't easy.
