      Steve Moore co-founded The Fortean Times, a magazine devoted to strange phenomena which detailed the strange and supernatural.

Mr Moore, who died on March 16, aged 64, launched the magazine in 1973, and according to an announcement on his death on The Fortean Times website, he remained a regular contributor of articles and reviews right up to the current issue.

The announcement added that Mr Moore had also edited the magazine's scholarly journal Fortean Studies, produced the General Index to issues 1-66 of FT, something it described as "a Herculean labour" and compiled a number of popular FT books, such as the Inept Crime and Weird Sex volumes.

The announcement went on to say: "Steve's knowledge encompassed more than forteana, taking in Eastern mysticism, the I Ching, science fiction and comics, of which he wrote many classic examples.

"Always a selfless source of esoteric information and sage advice, Steve will be irreplaceable and missed by all." . . .
