''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).
