J. Martin Graetz

(b. 1936)

J. Martin "Shag" Graetz was an early MITSFS member, and one of the creators of "Spacewar" on the computer at MIT in the early 1960's (hence one of the inventors of video games). He published one SF story. In the mid-60's he sold his long run of Weird Tales to MITSFS, where it now resides, bound by Wells Bindery of Maine in brightly colored library boards, and still the inspiration for numerous proto-horror writers. He was "Official Fan" at the first Milford Conference.
