(1945-1999) US editor and publisher who ran Arkham House from 1976 to 1996, when he was fired. Here, though without cover credit, he edited a notable retrospective collection of James Tiptree's stories, Her Smoke Rose Up Forever: The Great Years of James Tiptree, Jr (coll 1990), and a reprint anthology of stories "inspired" by H P Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos, Cthulhu 2000 (anth 1995). In 1996 Turner moved on to run his own small-press imprint, {GOLDEN GRYPHON PRESS}, continuing to focus on short-story collections from a wide range of writers; for Golden Gryphon he compiled another book of more or less Lovecraftian reprints: Eternal Lovecraft: The Persistence of H P Lovecraft in Popular Culture (anth 1998).
