(1929 --)

A fan, associate editor at Gnome Press, Wrzos also edited both Amazing Stories and Fantastic as Joseph Ross from August 1965 through early 1967. He oversaw both magazine's move to mostly reprints and a bimonthly schedule while the publisher, Sol Cohen refused to pay authors for the reprints, claiming he held the rights to them and leading to conflict with SFWA. Wrzos convinced Cohen to publish at least one new story in each issue of the magazines.

He edited the collections Best of Amazing, August Derleth's In Lovecraft's Shadow, and New Horizons. Ross also co-edited Seabury Quinn's Night Creatures, and Hannes Bok: A Life in Illustration.
