Storm, Jannick

Working name of Danish author, critic, editor and translator Finn Jannick Storm Jørgensen (1939-2015), whose importance was first acknowledged outside the Nordic countries in the dedication of Brian Aldiss's sf overview Billion Year Spree (1973): "To Jannick Storm, who colonised Denmark". The implication is hardly literally true: Storm himself encountered sf as a teenager, via cheap (generally abridged) paperback translations of US and British adventure sf as well as in the work of Niels ...

Moore, C L

(1911-1987) US author, collaborator with Henry Kuttner whom she married in 1940, and with whom she had collaborated since 1937 (see below). Before her intimate working association with Kuttner, she had, however, already achieved fame with her first story, "Shambleau" for Weird Tales in November 1933, a femme fatale tale of a psychic Vampire set on a Planetary Romance version of Mars.

Imaginative Tales

US Digest-size magazine, a bimonthly companion to Imagination, published by William Hamling's Greenleaf Publishing, which ran for 26 issues from September 1954-November 1958.

It was edited by Hamling with his wife Frances. / Imaginative Tales began as a humorous Fantasy magazine, the first six ...

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 ...
