Pseudonym of Austrian-born author Fred J [or O] Gebhardt (1925-1972), mostly in US, whose sf novel was the routine 12 to the Moon (1961) for Badger Books. This novelized the equally routine film 12 to the Moon (1960) directed by David Bradley from this author's original story as Fred Gebhardt; he also used his real name as screenwriter for The Phantom Planet (1961) directed by William Marshall.
He should not be confused with the film director Robert Wise. [JC]
