Geoffrey Webster (Scepticus) ( ?-1981)

From Ego No.2, 1982

Geoffrey Webster, who wrote for Minus One for a few years under the pseudonym of “Scepticus”, committed suicide in November 1981 at the age of 37. We quarreled some time ago over his support for the Hare Krishna Sect and did not meet again. After he died some of this sect’s representatives claimed that he had been a member for “over 10 years”. Although he professed to be sceptical of their beliefs when I knew him it was clear that they had a great emotional attraction for him and that by the end of his life their claim may well have been correct.
