(1919-1980) US author whose sf and fantasy work mostly appeared under the pseudonym Geoff St Reynard. As St Reynard he began publishing work of genre interest with "Wink Van Ripple" in Fantastic Adventures for December 1945, contributing frequently to that journal until its demise in 1953. Work published here included the first Usurpers tale, "The Usurpers" (January 1950 Fantastic Adventures), which was followed by Beware, the Usurpers (November 1951 Imagination; 2011 dos); and the book-length "Mistress of the Djinn" (November 1950 Fantastic Adventures), which is fantasy. Several of his works were Space Operas, all modestly unambitious.

Under his own name he mostly wrote adventure tales, some for such Slick journals as The Saturday Evening Post. His sf debut as Krepps was "'A Nickel Saved ...'" (March 1949 Fantastic Adventures). Also as Krepps he collaborated with H L Gold on the story The Enormous Room (October-November 1953 Amazing; 1955 chap). [JC/DRL]
