UK comic writer Steve Moore was an original contributor to one of my favorite magazines and ultimate place for weird news, Fortean Times. He passed away last weekend at the age of 64.
He was well versed in subjects including the occult, forteana, magic, oriental mysticism, martial arts cinema, and science fiction.
Steve was amongst the earliest members of the Gang of Fort, who launched Fortean Times magazine in the early 1970s, and the author of a great many influential comics and short stories for publications including 2000AD, Warrior, Dr Who magazine and, most recently, the Hercules series for Radical Publishing. At the time of his death he was working on a number of new projects, including his ongoing, privately published Tales of Telguuthand The Bumper Book of Magic, with his lifelong friend Alan Moore.
