In rapid succession I have made half a dozen movie cameos, starting with Double-D Avengers (night watchman in a Museum of Horrors featuring Frankentein, Dracula & the Wolfman), Sadomanequin (Alabama), Silent Invasion (Canadian), Scarlet Moon (Vampire Master), Cosmic Brainsuckers (British with Ray Harryhausen and John Landis) Fatal Kiss (with Jas. Karen), Mad Scientist Meets the Queen of Darkness and Aries Knights (disembodied brain, British). My 102d cameo will be this week in Ruby with Wm. Shatner, first instalment of a 6-part TV series scripted by Shatners daughter, and soon I will be spending a week in revived studio Monograms sci-fi/horror spoof Close Encounters of the Turd Kind, introducing my discovery Gina Main as the star (I play a physician who analyzes corpses).
Recently in Alabama I played Dr, Correy in a live radio performance of Orson Welles dramatization of Curt Siodmaks thrice-filmed classic, Donovans Brain.
As agent I have placed 10 sci-fi/fantasy novels in Romania, includng Dr. Cyclops, and am preparing an Ackermanthology for Italy.
