SAMALMAN, Alexander


SAMALMAN, Alexander
(1904-1956)
   US writer and editor who, after many years with Standard Magazines, became in 1954 editor of their sf journals, THRILLING WONDER STORIES, Fantastic Story Magazine (FANTASTIC STORY QUARTERLY) and STARTLING STORIES, the first two of which were soon amalgamated with the latter, though to little avail, for it folded before the end of 1955. Relatively little of AS's writing was sf, but it has been firmlyspeculated - though there can be no certainty - that under the house name Will GARTH he wrote Dr Cyclops * (1940), a rather effective novelizationof the film DR CYCLOPS (1940).
