Reginald Bretnor

Reginald Bretnor

Reginald Bretnor (1911–1992) was born in Vladivostok, Siberia. The family moved to San Diego, California, in 1920. He is best known for his invention of the "Feghoot," extremely short stories which end with a pun. Under the pseudonym Grendel Briarton, he penned Through Time and Space with Ferdinand Feghoot, a series of shaggy-dog-story SF puns which ran for years in The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, Venture, and Asimov's Science Fiction. A Feghoot collection was published by Paradox Press (1962) and Mirage Press published two other editions: The Compleat Feghoot and The (Even More) Compleat Feghoot. His final novel was Schimmelhorn's Gold, a collection of Bretnor's stories about an oversexed octogenarian idiot/genius.
