Wormser, Richard

Tagged: Author

(1908-1977) US screenwriter and author who worked in various genres from the beginning of the 1930s. Under his own name and of some sf interest were Thief of Bagdad (1961) and The Last Days of Sodom and Gomorrah (1962), both film Ties, and Pan Satyrus (1963), featuring a chimpanzee in space. He is credited with something like seventeen Nick Carter tales (see Nick Carter), none of them apparently of sf interest. He wrote a tie to the Television series The Green Hornet (1966-1967): The Green Hornet in the Infernal Light (1966) as by Ed Friend, a pseudonym he used as well for other nonfantastic titles. [JC]
