WILLIAMS, Robert Moore
(1907-1977)
   US writer, active in the sf field under his own name and various pseudonyms, including John S. Browning, H.H. Harmon, Russell Storm and the house name E.K. JARVIS. He began publishing sf as Robert Moore with "Zero as a Limit" for ASF in 1937, and by the 1960s had published over 150 stories. Though most are unremarkable, he was an important supplier of competent genre fiction during these decades. Typically adequate is the Jongor series: Jongor of Lost Land (1940 Fantastic Adventures; 1970), The Return of Jongor (1944 Fantastic Adventures; 1970)and Jongor Fights Back (1951 Fantastic Adventures; 1970). He did not begin publishing books until The Chaos Fighters (1955), but thereafter released many novels of the same general calibre as his short fiction. Notable were Doomsday Eve (1957 dos), a post- HOLOCAUST drama in which the world servesas an arena for struggling SUPERMEN, and the Zanthar series: Zanthar of the Many Worlds (1967), Zanthar at the Edge of Never (1968), Zanthar at Moon's Madness (1968) and Zanthar at Trip's End (1969). Zanthar is aprofessor with the gifts of a HERO. RMW wrote few original words, but rarely a dull one.
