Bhen, the benevolent B.E.M., is not, as some think, a 'little green man'. If you compare him with the NASA hardware of which he usually makes unorthodox use, you will see that he is actually some two and a half metres (8 ft) tall. He's a sort of interstellar hobo, apparently not needing to beathe and being able to resist all kinds of hostile environments, such as heat and radiation. But he is among the most popular of Hardy's creations.
Nearly all of the Bhen paintings that appeared on The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction (F&SF) are shown here, and are available as prints.
