First complete book publication of three sf novellas published in Australia in 1945 as three separate booklets, and published by Australian sf fan Graham Stone in hardcover in 1991. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR. A very uncommon edition (the three 1945 booklets are equally rare).

''Australian author who began publishing work of genre interest with ''The Reign of the Reptiles'' for Wonder Stories in August 1935, but who remains known almost solely for his Serpent Land sequence, comprising Lords of Serpent Land (1945 chapbook), Prisoners in Serpent Land (1945 chap) and Warriors of Serpent Land (1945 chap), all three being assembled as LORDS OF SERPENT LAND (1991); the tales, which are effectively one sustained novel, reflect the influence of Edgar Rice Burroughs's Tarzan, featuring elements of Prehistoric SF and the presence of several Amazonian Lost Races'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).
