Who is who, and why do they do it?

Early writers of pulp science fiction use pseudonyms for a variety of reasons. There are three main types, which are the collaborative pseudonym, the floating pseudonym, and house names. A collaborative pseudonym is one that stands for two or more authors who work collectively on a story. A floating pseodonym is one that is available to anyone who wants to use it. A house name is a variation of a floating pseudonym, where a publishing company will often use such a name to cover the fact that there are two contributions by the same author. Another reason might be that the contributor does not want others to know he or she has stories published in a certain framework.
I am currently looking for one.
