22 Oct Uncle Fester
Uncle Fester is the nom de plume of Steve Preisler, American industrial chemist, maverick counter-cultural icon and author of such books as Secrets of Methamphetamine Manufacture, and Silent Death.
Preisler gained underground fame after publishing Secrets of Methamphetamine Manufacture in the early 1980s. He says that he got the nickname “Uncle Fester” from his college years, since he was very well known for producing explosives, and blowing things up, like the character in The Addams Family. Preisler spent much of his career working in an industrial electroplating factory he calls “the rat hole.” In his spare time, he writes books.
