George Turner

(1916 - 8 June 1997)

An Australian fan, sf critic and author. He loved sf as a child, but his writing career began in non-SF. In the late 60s he became acquainted with John Bangsund who persuaded him to write reviews for ASFR. He also wrote for Bruce Gillispie's SF Commentary and developed a reputation as a top-flight critic of sf by the early 70s. By that time his fiction output had become entirely sf. Towards the end of his life he pulled back from criticism to write only fiction. He ran for FFANZ in 1986.
