Rickard was instrumental in encouraging the Willises to publish their own Fortean journal — the "INFO Journal: Science and the Unknown" began intermittent publication in Spring, — and sent them many British newspaper clippings, although few saw print.
Rickard later discovered that the production was fraught behind-the-scenes as Ronald Willis had been seriously ill, Paul thus finding it difficult to "keep up with things" on his own. Ron Willis succumbed to a brain tumour in March The News saw fairly regular bi-monthly publication for 15 issues between November and April The first issue featured a cover which would become briefly the unofficial logo of The News drawn by Rickard from a Selfridges advert originally created by Bernard Partridge.
The price was raised slightly for 6 — which also saw the page count upped to 24pg — due in large part to rising postal and paper costs. Helping behind the scenes was Steve Moore , a kindred-spirit whom Rickard met at a comics convention when the latter was a sub-editor at IPC. The two found they had much in common — including a love of Chinese mysticism — and Moore helped inspire Rickard to publish The News.
X"; Mike Dash and cartoonist Hunt Emerson. Emerson was introduced to Rickard in late , when after seven issues, he "wanted to improve the graphics", which Emerson certainly did, providing around 30 headings for use in issues 8 onwards. Watson would later write a regular column of UFO commentary entitled Enigma Variations from 29 , and articles on the subject of UFO -related murders and stories of sexual assault by aliens.
Issues 2 and 3 noted that The News was published "with an arrangement with INFO", this was revised from 4 to it being "affiliated to the International Fortean Organisation ". From 5, Mark A. Described by Rickard as "as much a disciple of George [Herriman] Issue 15 — now with 28 pages — announced that Rickard had decided to bow to popular opinion and retitle his miscellany with a more descriptive title.
Even by passing on rising postal and paper costs to the readership — which Rickard constantly reiterates that he is loath to do, the early Fortean Times was constantly facing an uphill financial battle. Early editorials of the new FT, therefore in fact beginning with The News 15 featured a notification of donations received, naming and thanking the hardcore readership which included many current and future-contributors for monies received, which aided the move towards higher production values.
With donations helping to offset costs, the price was held at 50p up until issue 20, whereupon the magazine dropped to a quarterly schedule from Spring Issue 21 — but raised the page count and price to continue producing the same amount of material for the same yearly fee 40pg, 75p ea.
Issue 18 saw a new semi-regular feature entitled "Forteana Corrigenda," aimed at correcting "errors in the literature" that had crept into various Fortean works through misquotation or other difficulties. He was joined by contributing editor David Fideler, and subsequently also as co-associate editor by Paul Sieveking 28— and Valerie Thomas 31— Issue 20 announced that Kay Thompson a staff member of Ley Hunter magazine, then under the editorship of Paul Devereux , with whom FT shared an address for several issues would be helping to type parts of subsequent issues to further delegate the burden from Rickard.
He, Moore and Sieveking were also later joined editorially by author Mike Dash who is mentioned as particularly overseeing the publication of scholarly occasional papers , before Moore moved from full editorial to largely correspondent duties for a dozen issues after 42, returning as a contributing editor in Autumn The same issue ran an obituary for Eric Frank Russell , of whom Rickard was a considerable fan.
He writes that Russell turned down an invitation to contribute material to The News back in , having "earned his rest" after 40 years as an active Fortean. Indeed, this was the semi-official address of FT until that shop closed. Sieveking joined the FT team with 28 as co-associate editor, and writes, highlighting the intrinsic early difficulties in printing FT that that issue "was printed by an Israeli entrepreneur in northern Greece and shipped to London. Issue 30 announced that while "over the last couple of issues [the] subscriber list Schadewald wrote about "The Great Fish Fall of " while Hunt Emerson produced the first cartoon strip under the title "Phenomenomix".
Sieveking took over full editorial duties from Rickard with 43, helming the subsequent four quarterly issues to 46 to give Rickard a chance to "revitalize",  which he did, returning with 46 to the position of co-editor. Colour, professional printing and wider distribution followed and a 6.
Several changes of logo and font have occurred throughout its life. General content[ edit ] The identification of correct original sources by contributors is a defining feature of the magazine, as it was for Charles Fort himself. However, the "objective reality" of these reports is not as important. The magazine "maintains a position of benevolent scepticism towards both the orthodox and the unorthodox" and " toes no party line ". The range of subject matter is extremely broad including, but not limited to, the following:.

Fortean Times – February 2015
Specimens have been kept in major zoos around the world and preserved in museums after their deaths, yet their zoological status has remained controversial. The wait has been worthwhile. The first four chapters of this fact-fest on pygmy elephants documents the fascinating range of island-endemic prehistoric forms, some of which survived into semi- modern times, and the tendency towards dwarfism or gigantism that frequently occurs as a consequence of insular evolution. The proboscidean examples merit a book of their own. Chapter 5 sets the scene for documenting the African pygmy elephant by revealing how taxonomic splitters delineated the African forest elephant from the African savannah elephant. Chapters are devoted to the African pygmy elephant, documenting its history and recorded specimens. Some researchers have categorised it as a valid species in its own right; others have discounted it as merely a juvenile form or even a dwarfed, teratological version of the forest elephant.
