Stu Cranstence


Stu Cranstence has made a name for himself with an uncompromising dedication to his own special brand of unorthodox field work and his criticism of so-called “real scientists”. He is a citizen scientist who spurns textbooks and the status quo and as a result he brings a fresh look to subjects that have often been overlooked in the annals of science literature. If you need to get a hold of him, you can find Stu “out in the field”.

The findings of Stu Cranstence have, for years, filled countless cardboard boxes, large trash cans and an entire aluminum shed in the back yard of his brother, Ron. Finally, they have been rescued from the ravages of time, mildew and indifference.
