ABOUT THE AUTHOR
G. (Gerald) Bryan Smith is a Northern California attorney.
Bryan Smith was born in Atlanta, Georgia. He graduated from Georgia State University in 1979 (BA, Journalism). He attended Walter F. George School of Law, Mercer University (Juris Doctorate, 1986) in Macon, Georgia; and later Golden Gate University School of Law, San Francisco (L.L.M., Master of Laws, 1996). He is an active member of the State Bar of California.
After stints as a Judge Advocate General (JAG) in the U.S. Air Force, and association with private law firms in California, Mr. Smith started his own law office in 1999. He has since worked as a solo practitioner attorney specializing in general civil litigation with emphasis on family law, estate planning, probate, and bankruptcy (website www.bryansmithatty.com).
From a teenager Mr. Smith has been an avid fan of science-fiction literature and film. His favorite science-fiction writers, in alphabetical surname order, are the grand masters Poul Anderson, James Blish, Ray Bradbury, Philip K. Dick, Robert A. Heinlein, Richard Matheson, H. Beam Piper, Frank M. Robinson, and Clifford D. Simak. Mr. Smith was a regular childhood fan of the original "Star Trek" and "Outer Limits" television series.
Feral Planet is the first and the "flagship" in the Colonel Kendrick Landry Space Adventure Series. Other novels featuring Colonel Landry will be released in the near future:
--Dome Of Slavery
--In Search Of Kronos
--Amira: Warrior Queen Of Crucida
Mr. Smith is dedicated to revitalizing the classic science-fiction of the genre's so-called "Golden Age" featuring the original Star Trek and the works of science-fiction literary masters including Robert Heinlein and Poul Anderson. Hopefully, the Colonel Landry Space Adventure Series is a good step in that direction.
Mr. Smith is interested in receiving candid input from his readers. Feel free to leave comments at his Website (www.phoenixepress.net)
