St Reynard, Geoff

Tagged: Author

Pseudonym of US author Robert Wilson Krepps (1919-1980) for most of his sf and fantasy work, though he wrote adventure tales under his own name, some for Slick journals like The Saturday Evening Post. As St Reynard he began publishing work of genre interest with "Wink Van Ripple" in Fantastic Adventures for December 1945, contributing frequently to that journal until its demise in 1953. Work published here included the first Usurpers tale, "The Usurpers" (January 1950 Fantastic Adventures), which was followed by "Beware the Usurpers" (November 1951 Imagination); and the book-length "Mistress of the Djinn" (November 1950 Fantastic Adventures), which is fantasy. Under his own name appeared The Enormous Room (October/November 1953 Amazing; 2010 ebook) with H L Gold. Several of his works were Space Operas, all modestly unambitious. [JC]
