Ziff-Davis House Name (1941-1958), a personal pseudonym of William P McGivern until 1944 (though it is not certain that all Vance stories up to that date were by him); from 1948-1950 the name was used mostly by Chester S Geier, and between 1951 and 1956 it was again used several times by McGivern in Amazing and Fantastic; the name was also used by Roger P Graham (Rog Phillips); once by Randall Garrett in collaboration with Robert Silverberg; and once by Henry Slesar.
The Paul W Fairman story The Woman in Skin 13 (June 1952 Fantastic Adventures; 2013 dos) was credited to Vance on the original magazine cover, but to Fairman in the contents list and story header; Vance also received cover credit in the 2021 Dos-à-Dos reissue [see Checklist below], although the publisher's website description attributes it to Fairman.
