(1954-    ) US editor, agent and author, active as an editor with Putnam/Berkley books 1977-1981, with New American Library 1986-1992, with Warner Books in 1992, and with Harper Collins 1993-1999; he joined Trident Media Group in 2001 as a senior agent. Throughout his career he has been noted for a swift and canny knowledgeability about the sf world. With Victoria Schochet he edited the first four volumes of the Berkley Showcase: New Writings in Science Fiction and Fantasy anthology series (#1 and #2 1980; #3 and #4 1981) (see The Berkley Showcase for further details); he also edited Avram Davidson's Collected Fantasies (coll 1982). His own writing has been, by comparison, peripheral, consisting of an anonymous sf spoof, Science Fiction (1981 chap) in the No Frills sequence of spoofs, in this case spoofing a very wide range of sf Clichés, and Rogers' Rangers (1983), a Buck Rogers in the 25th Century tie.
