Herscholt, Wolfe

Tagged: Author | House name

An Australian pseudonym or more likely a House Name used mainly by G C Bleeck and Russell Hausfeld on some unremarkable Scientific Thrillers titles, two of them of novella length. These are Magnetic Peril (1949 chap) and X-Ray Menace (1949 chap), both involving Inventions; in the first a new metal is used to magnetically attract ocean liners, which are then looted, and in the second, an x-ray camera is used to make a film (see Cinema) that exposes the secret lives of Hollywood stars.
