Gordon Benson, Jr.

(1936-1996)

Gordon Benson, Jr. was an American bookseller, publisher, and bibliographer who released the first of his many solo bibliographies of SF figures in approximately 1980.

His early bibliographies, such as that of Jack Williamson, were privately published from Albuquerque, New Mexico, with no designated publisher imprint.

In 1983 he moved into partnership with UK bibliographer Phil Stephensen-Payne. By the late 1980s Benson had become relatively less active, although he continued to participate with Stephensen-Payne in many projects.
