Working name of the US author born Berkeley Beryl Levinstein (1909-1975), who began to publish work of genre interest with "I'll Be There With Music" Fantastic Adventures for June 1943, publishing his fifty or so stories in that magazine and in its Ziff-Davis stablemate Amazing. He wrote under his own name, as by Burt B Liston, B E Liston and Lester Barclay; he also contributed work under the House Names Alexander Blade and Morris J Steele. His only book was Meteor of Death (coll 1954 chap). Much of his sf work, like Death of a B E M (October 1948 Amazing; 2011 chap), was Parody, unfairly giving him a reputation as an author of bad work. [JE/PN/MA]
