  • 1949 F. T. Laney in Spacewarp (#31) Oct. 3 (subheading) page image Francis T. Laney

    Fluent, Fairly Fuggheaded Flippancies.

  • 1950 F. T. Laney Syllabus for Fanzine in Spacewarp (#42) Sept. 10 page image Francis T. Laney

    Getting constructive for a moment, here is the hap-hazard fuggheaded F. Towner Laney fanzine-throwing-together technique which has worked for 14 issues of ACOLYTE.

  • 1959 R. Eney Fancyclopedia II (1979) 62 Dick Eney bibliography

    He puts stf into everything he says and doesβ€”his work, school papers, den, 'n' everything. He’s a good deal of a fuggheaded dope. Fortunately the picture is not true to life, is it?

  • 1959 D. Knight Near Misses From All Over in Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction Dec. 91/1 Damon Knight

    The writing is gassy, with an almost incredible concentration of cliches in places. For contrast, Cooper has had the gall to interpolate this fuggheaded screed with passages from Ecclesiastes and Revelation.

  • 1991 L. Niven, J. Pournelle, & M. Flynn Fallen Angels 357 Larry Niven Michael F. Flynn Jerry Pournelle bibliography

    Some fuggheaded Green Police.
