Jarvis, E K

Tagged: Author | House name

Ziff-Davis House Name used 1942-1958 in Amazing, Fantastic Adventures and Fantastic for over 45 stories, primarily by Robert Moore Williams, who used the name as a personal pseudonym until the 1950s, when Robert Bloch, Paul W Fairman, Harlan Ellison, Robert Silverberg and Henry Slesar also wrote as Jarvis. Bloch was the most frequent identified user of the byline in the 1950s, with seven appearances; many more "Jarvis" stories remain unidentified. "Biddy and the Silver Man" (February 1957 Fantastic) was long misattributed (even on his own website) to Harlan Ellison, but his company The Kilimanjaro Corporation announced in January 2020 that he had confirmed before his death that the story was not his.
