(August 17, 1920-December 6, 2003)
An active fanzine fan from 1937, when he requested a copy of Fantascience Digest from Robert A. Madle until 1943 when he was inducted into the military. Miske had a reputation for getting into feuds on par with Wollheim's. This reputation was in part based on his pseudonymous column "Stardust" in Warner's Spaceways, but when he appeared at Chicon, the reality was much more subdued. He received a letter from Earl Singleton dated February 10, 1941, which caused him to doubt the pseuicide.
Miske co-edited some issues of the fanzine Scienti-Snaps with Walter E. Marconette beginning in August 1939 through its final issue in 1941, when the name was changed to Bizarre. He also published Chaos.
Miske seems to have gafiated in 1943, although he attended Clevention, without making much of a fuss and simply sat back and watched other fans without resuming his own fannish activity following the con.
Following the war, Miske worked as editor and eventually editor-in-chief of Foundry Magazine.
