Jarvis, E K

Tagged: Author | House name

Ziff-Davis House Name used 1942-1958 in Amazing, Fantastic Adventures and Fantastic for over 45 stories, primarily by Robert Moore Williams, who used the name as a personal pseudonym until the 1950s, when Robert Bloch, Paul W Fairman, Harlan Ellison, Robert Silverberg and Henry Slesar also wrote as Jarvis. Bloch was the most frequent identified user of the byline in the 1950s, with seven appearances; many more "Jarvis" stories remain unidentified. Biddy and the Silver Man (February 1957 Fantastic; 2020 dos) was long misattributed to Harlan Ellison, even on his own website; but his company The Kilimanjaro Corporation announced in January 2020 that he had confirmed before his death that the story was not his.
