He used a pseudonym for the Lucky Starr stories (my favorite was Lucky
Starr and the Pirates of the Asteroids) but I forget what it was. By
the time I read them, both names were on the cover.

Weird...I was a kid and liked The Stars, Like Dust and THEN started the
Lucky Starr books. Go figure.

His real name was Isaac Asimov. Niven and Gerrold made a pun out of it
in one of their books.
