Wylie, Dirk

Tagged: Author

Name adopted by Joseph H Dockweiler (1920-1949) – also known as Harry Dockweiler – a member of the Futurians fan group, for several stories written in collaboration with Frederik Pohl, with whom he set up the Dirk Wylie Literary Agency after the war (Pohl continued under this name after Wylie's fatal illness forced him to resign). C M Kornbluth also had a hand in one of these, "Vacant World" (January 1941 Super Science Stories), and Kornbluth's first published story "Stepsons of Mars" (April 1940 Astonishing Stories) was a collaboration with Harry Dockweiler and Richard Wilson, writing together as Ivar Towers. The Wylie story "Highwayman of the Void" (Fall 1944 Planet Stories) is by Pohl alone. [BS/DRL/MA]
