Avatars and Resemblances

An Avatar, in the context of fiction, is a character in a story who is the recognisable embodiment of a character from some fannish universe (in this case, Blake's 7)

There is a more complete list of Avatars at but here are some that I've liked and recognised:

  • "Kill The Dead" by Tanith Lee (Avon and Vila)
  • "Companions on the Road" by Tanith Lee (Avon and maybe Blake and Vila)
  • You Have The Right To Remain Silent by Barbara Paul (Avon and maybe Blake)
  • "Brothers in Arms" by Lois McMaster Bujold (people say that one of the supporting characters is like Avon, but I couldn't see it at all. Doesn't really matter, though, I'd highly recommend Lois McMaster Bujold's Vorkosigan books anyway)
  • These Old Shades by Georgette Heyer (Avon)
  • Black Sheep by Georgette Heyer (The hero here reminds me of Avon, though he isn't as bitter and sarcastic... just completely uncaring of what other people think of him...)
