Hersey, Harold

Tagged: Author | Editor

(1893-1956) US editor, publisher, short-story author and poet. A man of great energy and relatively little talent, Hersey edited such sf Pulp magazines as Thrill Book, Miracle Science and Fantasy Stories and Mystery Adventures, though most of his editorial work was not sf-related. His early writing, all negligible, appeared under various pseudonyms; but Night (coll 1923), a Poetry collection, has superb artwork by Elliott Dold, and Pulpwood Editor (1937) is an informative (albeit anecdotal) look at the Pulp-magazine world.
