Pseudonym of German physicist and author Klaus Mahn (1934-1993), mostly resident in the US from 1962; he began to publish (yet untranslated) sf tales as early as 1959, but remains best known as a principal writer from 1961 until his death for the vast Space Opera series and subseries published under the Perry Rhodan rubric, his contributions showing a bent toward Hard SF, specifically Physics, though he died (a pedestrian fatality in a car crash) before Perry Rhodan story-arcs began fully to explore distant galaxies and Cosmologies. Mahr contributed several hundred titles to the series; we list English translations only at this point; unless otherwise registered, each title given in the Checklist incorporates one novella plus additional material.
