Biography:

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.
