(1921-2000) US comedian, composer and author who began to publish work of specific genre interest with "The Public Hating" in Bluebook for January 1955, a tale in which the Psi Powers espoused by J B Rhine, who is named in the text, are oppressively amplified in the form of public executions (see Crime and Punishment). This well-known story – and most of his further tales invoking Fantastika, competently designed for readers of Slick magazines – was assembled in The Man Who Turned Back the Clock and Other Stories (coll 1995).
