Brian Stableford, in his book "Yesterday's Bestsellers: A Journey Through Literary History", pp. 88-90, observes: " In one of the more striking of his later novels, Dr.Artz (1929), Hichens (Who was then sixty-five years old) contemplates with utter horror the exploits of a scientist, based on the notorious Serge Voronoff, who proposed that virility might be restored to old men by transplanting the testicles of monkeys into their bodies to boost their testosterone levels."
