Raymond Gordon Bayless
Bayless was born in Oakland and spent most of his life in Los Angeles, where he learned to paint by studying paintings in the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. He provided his works to the federal government, contributing scenes of ships and landscapes to the Air Force, Navy, State Department and the Pentagon.
Bayless, who also painted science fiction and fantasy scenes, created a half dozen book jackets for Arkham House Publishers Inc. Science fiction writer Ray Bradbury in 2000 called his fantasy and landscape paintings «truly excellent.»
Bayless published a half dozen books on parapsychology and collaborated on others: «The Enigma of the Poltergeist,« «Animal Ghosts,« «Experiences of a Psychical Researcher,« «The Other Side of Death,« «Apparitions and Survival of Death» and «Voices from Beyond.»
