Richard A Lupoff (1935-2020)
Richard Allen Lupoff was born in New York in 1935. In common with many of his contemporaries, he entered science fiction as a fan - indeed, his fanzine Xero featured a stellar list of contributors including James Blish, Lin Carter, Avram Davidson, L.

He was the author of some two dozen novels and over one hundred short stories across the fields of SF, mystery, humour, and satire, as well as a great deal of genre-related non-fiction. He edited numerous SF and Fantasy anthologies and was an expert on the writing of Edgar Rice Burroughs. He died in 2020.
