24) Bill Wesley [Any info on him? On top left of first page is: Otis W.
Beal, Jr. (The agent?)]
łBeyond the Snake Planet˛
Science Fiction Stories
July, 1959
40 pages

Six in addition to the one you have: "The Coffin Ship", 1/60 SCIENCE
FICTION; "Crash Program", 12/58 FUTURE; "Disjecta Membra", 4/60
FUTURE; "The Enormous Diamond", 6/59 SUPER SCIENCE; "The Palindromic
Blonde", 2/60 FUTURE; and "The Primus Curse", 5/54 PLANET. Beal may
very well have been his agent, since I don't find a listing for that
name as a writer.

His actual name was Otis Wesley Beal. Bill Wesley was his pseudonym. My mother dated him in the mid 1950s! I was like 11 years old, and it broke my heart when they broke up. He had a hobby of making telescopes. Here is a link, and also a pdf of one of his stories (which I remember reading way beck then):
