I doubt that Creighton ever did any actual UFO research. His
valuable contribution to the subject largely involved the
translation of reports from foreign language sources. Most of
the rest of his work consisted of what has been described as
"idle speculation" and "armhair ufology".

While he was editor of FSR, Charles Bowen described Creighton to
a colleague of mine as "an awfully nice chap but nutty as a
fruit cake".

Incidently, does anyone think there is any significance in the
fact that two principle characters in the popular television SF
comedy show "Red Dwarf" are called Rimmer and Kryton?
