Pseudonym of the untraced US author W G Worfel (? -? ), whose Munchausen XX [for full title see Checklist] (1904) escapes being a Sequel by Other Hands through its focus on the interplanetary adventures of one or more separate members of Baron Munchausen's family (see Rudolph Erich Raspe). During the course of at least one Fantastic Voyage, the protagonist visits Saturn (see Outer Planets) where he encounters Aliens. [JC]
