Subject: Re: Klass Question

Philip Klass was a mathematics professor who wrote science
fiction under the pen name William Tenn.

Philip J. Klass is a former editor of "Aviation Week & Space
Technology" magazine and the well known UFO skeptic. They are not
the same man. Some authorities (like Baird Searles "A Reader's
Guide to Science Fiction") claim they are the same man, but
they're not. I know Philip J. Klass (UFO skeptic) and I've seen
photos of "William Tenn." They ain't the same fella. I believe
"Tenn" died back in the early 80s, and Phil Klass is still alive,
much to many believers' chagrin.
