If you take a look at the Author Index to the Vacation in the Golden Age, you’ll note that below each author’s name is now a set of links. The links will take you to the entry for the SF Encyclopedia, Internet Speculative Fiction Database, and some kind of official website, respectively. If the item is not linked, it means I couldn’t find an entry. I only made cursory attempts at looking for “official” web pages.
I made two interesting discoveries in doing this. There was an entry for Lee Gregor, which I discovered was actually a pseudonym for Milton A. Rothman. There was another entry for Arthur McCann, author of several science articles in this Vacation. Turns out that McCann is none other than John W. Campbell himself. The index has been updated accordingly in both cases.
I’m hoping this addition provides a quick way for people looking at an author in the index to get more information about the author.
As always, I’m open to suggestions. And if you know of an “official” web page for an author and the link doesn’t exist in my index, let me know.
