Costello, P F

Tagged: Author | House name

One of the many Ziff-Davis House Names, this appeared on over 40 magazine stories 1941-1958, but until the late 1940s was used exclusively for stories by William P McGivern – indeed it was his personal pen-name until he was called up. It was then sometimes used by Chester S Geier, later by Roger P Graham (Rog Phillips) and probably others still unidentified. "Secret of the Flaming Ring" (March 1951 Fantastic Adventures) and "Space is for Suckers" (June 1958 Amazing) have both been attributed to Graham. [PN]
