MEAD, Harold (Charles Hugh)
(1910-)
   UK writer. The first and better known of his sf novels, The Bright Phoenix (1955), is a sombrely told post- HOLOCAUST tale in which a reestablished but overregimented human culture tries unsuccessfully to reinhabit abandoned parts of the Earth; it ends a little sentimentally with a Second Coming. The other, Mary's Country (1957), tells of the quest of a group of children - most of whose social peers have been killed by plague - for a perfect society.
