Fred Warshofsky is an American science writer and film director. In 1977, he published Doomsday: The Science of Catastrophe in which he reviews the catastrophist literature of his day, particularly the work of Velikovsky.
>Atlantisforschung commented that Warshofsky’s treatment of Immanuel Velikovsky’s works deserves special mention. He dealt with them and their reception for the first time in his 1975 essay When the Sky Rained Fire: The Velikovsky Phenomenon. The SIS Review enthusiastically commented on the article at the time: ” … a masterful (albeit colorfully introduced) consolidation of Velikovsky ‘s main works – in about 4,500 words -, together with [an account of] the excitement they aroused […], makes a good introduction to the study of his theories.“(a)<
He also fleetingly touches on the subject of Atlantis[1146.87] noting “the increasing evidence that Atlantis was an island city in the Aegean”, namely Santorini, which matches Atlantis “in startling detail.”
