From Google Books: Simon Harvester was a pseudonym for Henry Gibbs. ~~~ From Wikipedia: A pseudonym is a name that a person or group assumes for a particular purpose, which differs from his or her original or true name (orthonym).[1] Popular pseudonyms include stage names, noms de plume (pen names), aliases, gamer identifications, anagrams, Graecisms, Latinisations, mystifications, nicknames, and assumed names (and orders) of popes and monarchs.[2] ~~~ Pseudonyms are often used to hide an individual's real identity, as with writers' pen names, graffiti artists' tags, resistance fighters' or terrorists' noms de guerre, and computer hackers' handles. Actors, musicians, and other performers sometimes use stage names, for example, to mask their ethnic backgrounds. Employers sometimes require employees to use assigned names to help sell products; for example, a company that does business mostly in one country but locates a call center in another country may require its employees to assume names common in the former country in an effort to draw a more positive or less negative reaction from current and/or prospective customers. ~~~ In some cases, pseudonyms are adopted because they are part of a cultural or organizational tradition. This has been the case of devotional names used by members of some religious orders, and "cadre names" used by Communist party leaders such as Trotsky and Lenin. ~~~ A pseudonym may also be employed for purely philosophical reasons when an individual feels the context and content of the exchange offers no reason, legal or otherwise, to provide their legal or given name. ~~~ A collective name or collective pseudonym is one shared by two or more persons. This is sometimes used by the co-authors of a work, such as Ellery Queen, or Bourbaki.
