Laser 31. SF novel.

''Canadian sf imprint initiated in 1975 by Harlequin Books, the US publisher of Mills & Boon romances, under the editorship of Roger Elwood. The books were restricted to a formula which specified a male protagonist, an upbeat ending, no sex or atheism, and a minimum of long words. All Laser Book covers were the work of Frank Kelly Freas. The series was suspended early in 1977 after fifty-seven books had appeared. The Laser formula made it unlikely that books of any literary quality would be published, but some were interesting, including K W Jeter's debut, Seeklight (1975), Ray Nelson's Blake's Progress (1975; rev vt Timequest 1985) and Tim Powers's first two novels, The Skies Discrowned (1976) and Epitaph in Rust (1976)'' (Malcolm J. Edwards/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).
