1986--MOSQUITO COAST--An interesting fan theory from Jonathan Gysen: In "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade", Harrison Ford and River Phoenix play Indy. In "The Mosquito Coast", Harrison Ford plays Allie Fox and River Phoenix play his son Charlie Fox. In "Relic Hunter", Sydney Fox is a female version of Indiana Jones. Do you think that Allie Fox could be the Indy’s illigetimate son ? Do you think that Sydney Fox could be born of the first mariage of Allie Fox ?


1997--RELIC HUNTER--First recorded adventures of Sydney Fox (whose true full name is Sydney Fox Renwick), a Professor of History at a traditional East Coast University. Her specialty is Ancient Civilizations, and she is also an expert in the customs and myths of historic cultures throughout the world. Sydney is an explorer/adventurer who has traveled the world in search of lost icons, cities, and tombs. It is this vast knowledge of the arcane combined with her mastery of the martial arts that allows Sydney to take care of herself in the most dangerous of situations.  Toobworlder Toby O'Brien has his own O'Bservations on Relic Hunter which you can read here.

2000--RELIC HUNTER--"Roman Holiday"--Sydney and Nigel are on a trip, so Claudia decides to help Sydney's friend Roger to find Caesar's Armor. But relic hunting is not her strongest talent.

2001--RELIC HUNTER--"Treasure Island"--Relic Hunter Sydney Fox and her crew locate and salvage the booty from the legendary Treasure Island. Jim Hawkins told the tale to author Robert Louis Stevenson, and the events were then fictionalized by setting them in the South Seas instead of the Caribbean.

February 2002--RELIC HUNTER--"Antianeirai"--Sydney and Nigel travel to Istanbul to investigate the death of one Sydney's friends, a professor who was trying to prove Hercules did exist by finding the Belt of Hippolyte. They soon realize they're facing the Antianeirai - women who fight as men, a group of modern days "Amazons". Hercules appears.

Late 2016--PULPWORK CHRISTMAS SPECIAL 2014--"Dillon and the Night of the Krampus"--Legendary action hero Dillon takes on the mythical holiday monster known as the Krampus. This may be the first time I've introduced either Dillon or the Krampus to the Television Crossover Universe. Dillon is said to know both ALASKA JIM and JIM ANTHONY, both of which appeared in the previous DILLON story THE VRIL AGENDA. A professor from Grand Lakes University is hired as an expert on the Krampus. Grand Lakes University is from the Rodney Dangerfield film, BACK TO SCHOOL. Dillon also once took some courses at the University of Northeastern California taught by Professor Sydney Fox. The University of Northeastern California is from the Judd Apatow series, UNDECLARED, while Professor Fox is of course our RELIC HUNTER. My appreciation to author Derrick Ferguson for bringing in both BACK TO SCHOOL and UNDECLARED into the TVCU. This means I have to revise my Adam Sandler post though. On the dating of this entry, I used a date best guessed by James Bojaciuk. I'm privileged to know author Derrick Ferguson and was able to directly ask him about the date setting and he responded: "Nope. I don't even know. Seriously. If anybody's been reading my Dillon stories for a goodly period of time then you'll notice that I painstakingly avoid mentioning dates, years or the ages of the characters. Ron Fortier recently asked me exactly how old Eli Creed is and the best I could come up with is that he's somewhere between 60-70 and that's as much as I'll commit to. The reason I avoid ages is because there's always going to be some smart-ass that will dispute the physical abilities of a character of a certain age or argue that such-and-such technology couldn't possibly exist in the year I say the story is taking place. Not taking to account that this is a completely fictional universe of my own creation and what I says goes. Now due to "Dead Beat In La Esca" written by my good friend Joel Jenkins is set in 1987 this has led fans of my character to take it as a given that the Dillon Adventures are set during the 1980s/1990s. I would not necessarily agree with that but on the other hand, I'll play fair and not dispute it either if that's what others want to think." Of course, since this is a blog that relies on chronologies, I couldn't go with "I don't know" and so relied on James' best guess. Derrick said I didn't need to include his explanation but it was a great excuse for me to tell all of you readers that I know him.
