Geoff Willmetts has been editor at SFCrowsnest for some 15 plus years now, showing a versatility and knowledge in not only Science Fiction, but also the sciences and arts, all of which has been displayed here through editorials, reviews, articles and stories. With the latter, he has been running a short story series under the title of ‘Psi-Kicks’
If you want to contribute to SFCrowsnest, read the guidelines and show him what you can do. If it isn’t usable, he spends as much time telling you what the problems is as he would with material he accepts. This is largely how he got called an Uncle, as in Dutch Uncle. He’s not actually Dutch but hails from the west country in the UK.

Bela Lugosi And The Monogram 9 by Gary D. Rhodes and Robert Guffey (book review).

If you thought ‘Bela Lugosi And The Monogram 9’ was a pop group or even a missed Lugosi film, go to the back of the class. Well, sort of. I have to confess I wasn’t quite sure what this book by Gary D. Rhodes and Robert Guffey was all about until I started reading it. […]
