Milwaukee Fictioneers
from Fancyclopedia 2 Supplement ca. 1960
The group consisted of Ralph Milne Farley (Penname of Roger Sherman Hoar, a former Wisconsin senator), Ray Palmer, Arthur Tofte, Lawrence Keating, and, later Stanley G. Weinbaum. Its primary importance lines in the fact that upon Weinbaum's death, the Fictioneers sponsored the publication of a memorial volume, Weinbaum's Darm of Flame. Conrad H. Ruppert, the printer for Julius Schwartz' Fantasy Magazine, set the type and ran it off two pages at a time; RAP arranged to have the book bound The original introduction by Palmer was deemed too personal by Weinbaum's widow, so another by Keating was substituted. Six copied with Palmer's introduction are known to exist.
