Entry updated 12 September 2022. Tagged: Author.
(1912-1995) UK author, always in collaboration with Arthur Friggens, of several sf novels for Robert Hale Limited, none being remarkable in content. Anti-Zota (1973) revolves around conflict between the short-lived and the long-lived (see Immortality) in the Far Future. Arguably the Mortorio books – Mortorio (1973) and Mortorio Two (1975), where Mortorio is a planet mysteriously capable of resisting exploitation by Earth – stand out from the crowd.
This author should not be confused with Eric Burgess (1920-2005), a consultant and journalist involved in the early space programme. [JC/DRL]
