(1928-1991) German author, active from 1948. He published prolifically – including much sf – in the circulating-library format in which many pulp adventures appeared in postwar Germany; none of this material has been translated. However, translations of his novellas in the weekly Dime-Novel SF format of Perry Rhodan (which see for any details), the enormously successful series he cofounded in 1961 with Walter Ernsting (who wrote as Clark Darlton), with whom Scheer had written collaborative works, are familiar to English-language readers. Scheer was for some time coordinator and chief author of the series. [JC/PN]
