During the Fifties, he wrote various books, mostly westerns and science fiction novels as well as thrillers. He illustrated covers for various books (including at least two for Pan Books' in early 1952, namely “Don't Get Me Wrong” by Peter Cheyney and “Murder in Mesopotamia” by Agatha Christie), including some covers for his own titles when they were reprinted in paperback by Banner Books - an imprint of the L. Miller & Son editions - in 1959/60.
For "L. Miller & Son" he also illustrated several Mandrake the Magician (Miller) issues.
