My fave Pohl SF story was Starburst and a little known fact is that Mr. Pohl was originally responsible for split TV, allow multiple screens (2-4 or more) to be viewed simultaneously, allowing TV fans in general, and sports fans the world over, to enjoy their viewing.

A golden age manster. RIP. He's gone beyond the event horizon.
