(1947-    ) US magazine editor and author, principally of horror and weird fiction, who began to publish work of genre interest with The Events at Poroth Farm (December 1972 Beyond the Dark Gateway; 1990 chap), which despite its initial Fanzine appearance was selected for The Year's Best Horror Stories No. 3 (anth 1973) edited by Richard Davis. Klein's well-received horror novel is The Ceremonies (1984), which won a British Fantasy Award as best novel. Short fiction is collected in Dark Gods (coll 1985) – where his World Fantasy Award-winning novella "Nadelman's God" first appeared – and Reassuring Tales (coll 2006; exp vt Reassuring Tales: Expanded Version 2021).

Klein was the editor of Rod Serling's The Twilight Zone Magazine for its first 37 issues, from April 1981 to July/August 1985; many stories from 1981-1982 are assembled as Great Stories from Rod Serling's The Twilight Zone Magazine (anth 1982) edited by Klein. In 1984-1985 he also edited the first three issues – #1 being a Twilight Zone Special – of the related magazine Night Cry from TZ Publications Inc of New York. [DRL]
