Human survivor of the destruction of Earth. Also an amateur banjo player and composer. From Venus on the Half Shell by fictional science fiction author Kilgore Trout. A recurring character invented by Kurt Vonnegut, fellow author Philip José Farmer thought it'd be fun to write one of Trout's novels that only existed as a title and short excerpt in God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater (1965).
It was first published in the December 1974 issue of Fantasy & Science Fiction.
He always carries an atomic-powered electrical banjo.
