Altman, Robert

(1925-2006) US Cinema director, producer and screenwriter perhaps best known for directing the films M*A*S*H (1970) and Nashville (1975). His first film of clear genre interest is Countdown (1967), a Space-Flight thriller anticipating NASA's 1969 landing on the Moon. This was followed by the more fantastical movies Brewster McCloud (1970), a fantasy of Flying; Images (1972), a psychological horror film featuring apparent Doppelgangers; and 3 Women (1977), in which through unexplained ...

Smith, Evelyn E

(1922-2000) US crossword-puzzle compiler and author, who wrote at least five gothic romances as by Delphine C Lyons, some of which were supernatural; she began publishing sf with "Tea Tray in the Sky" in Galaxy for September 1952, and for about a decade published actively in the magazines; after about 1960 she appeared there only infrequently. For her crossword story "BAXBR/DAXBR" (in Time to Come, anth 1954, ed August Derleth; the two alien words should properly appear "crossed"), see Games ...

Teilhet, Darwin L

(1904-1964) US screenwriter and author, who also wrote as by Cyrus T Fisher; his suspense thrillers normally stop short of the fantastic, though The Fear Makers (1945), filmed as The Fearmakers (1958) to his own script, describes a very Near Future conspiracy to betray America. The mystery embedded in the nature of the returning soldier protagonist's dead partner edges into the fantastic; the film is entirely mundane. [JC]

Morey, Leo

Working name of American artist Leopoldo Morey y Pena (1889-1965). Born into a well-to-do family in Peru, he studied engineering at Louisiana State University and briefly did illustrations for a newspaper in Argentina before returning to America to work as an artist, first in New Orleans and later in New York City. Some interior art and covers for Hugo Gernsback's Science and Invention presumably brought him to the attention of Gernsback's associate T O'Conor Sloane, and when Gernsback left ...

Robinson, Roger

(1943-    ) UK computer programmer, bibliographer and publisher, active in UK Fandom for many years. The Writings of Henry Kenneth Bulmer (1983 chap; rev 1984 chap) is an exhaustive Bibliography of one of the most prolific sf writers, and Who's Hugh?: An SF Reader's Guide to Pseudonyms (1987) is similarly exhaustive in its listing of Pseudonyms. Criticized at first for its failure to annotate its findings – so that, for instance, pseudonyms used for sf could not be ...
