A fine SF artist has died. Richard Gaikowski was the definitive bohemian bon vivant and grew with the culture flitting between Sixties Hippiedom, the Seventies Punk scene and Eighties and Ninties Cyber-life. He was a reporter with the Hearst Corporation, founded the Roxie Movie House, founded One Way Films - a distribution company devoted to Punk and New Wave cinema - and had a thousand and one more projects and adventures. His documentary on the Deaf Club, “Deaf Punk” is required viewing. Read of his fascinating life here.
