Born In Captivity., Berry,  Bryan
59 Berry, BryanBorn In Captivity. 26180
Hamilton & Co.: London. 1952.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
SF novel.

''UK author (1930-1955) who was active for only a few years. Along with such writers as John Russell Fearn, E.C. Tubb and Kenneth Bulmer, he contributed many pulp-magazine-style sf novels to obscure paperback houses, most notably the Venus trilogy as by ''Rolf Garner''. And the Stars Remain (1952) confronts men and Martians with a superior force. BORN IN CAPTIVITY (1952) presents a rigid post-WWIII society. Other novels include Return to Earth (1951), Dread Visitor (1952) and The Venom Seekers (1953). The Venus trilogy - Resurgent Dust (1953), The Immortals (1953) and The Indestructible (1954) - portrays in bold strokes mankind's fate on Venus after the destruction of life on Earth: the man who eventually eliminates tyranny becomes Lord Kennet of Gryllaa'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF).

Laser Books: Ontario. 1976.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Paperback original.
Laser 31. SF novel.

''Canadian sf imprint initiated in 1975 by Harlequin Books, the US publisher of Mills & Boon romances, under the editorship of Roger Elwood. The books were restricted to a formula which specified a male protagonist, an upbeat ending, no sex or atheism, and a minimum of long words. All Laser Book covers were the work of Frank Kelly Freas. The series was suspended early in 1977 after fifty-seven books had appeared. The Laser formula made it unlikely that books of any literary quality would be published, but some were interesting, including K W Jeter's debut, Seeklight (1975), Ray Nelson's Blake's Progress (1975; rev vt Timequest 1985) and Tim Powers's first two novels, The Skies Discrowned (1976) and Epitaph in Rust (1976)'' (Malcolm J.
