Joining the Cavalcade

Filed under: General — m759 @ 8:48 AM

The author featured in the previous post, one "Stephen Marlowe,"
reportedly died on February 22, 2008.

From his New York Times obituary by Margalit Fox —

"Mr. Marlowe was born Milton Lesser in Brooklyn
on Aug. 7, 1928. He received his bachelor’s degree
in philosophy from the College of William and Mary
in 1949. Under his original name, he began his
career in the early 1950s writing science fiction.

In the late ’50s, Mr. Lesser legally changed his name
to Stephen Marlowe, one of several pen names he
regularly used. (Among the others were Andrew Frazer,
Darius John Granger, C. H. Thames, Stephen Wilder,
Jason Ridgway and Adam Chase. In his 1961 novel
Dead Man’s Tale , Mr. Lesser joined the cavalcade of
ghostwriters who published under the name Ellery Queen.)"

From this journal on the date of Marlowe's reported death —

… Todo lo sé por el lucero puro
que brilla en la diadema de la Muerte

— Rubén Darío
