Berry was active as an illustrator, mostly for Fanzines, from 1948 or earlier, some of his early work appearing in William L Hamling magazines, including Imagination and Imaginative Tales. Beginning in the late 1960s and extending until the early 1980s, he worked as an inker for Jack Kirby. His sf novels, beginning with Flowers of Hell (1970), are sf erotica (see Sex; Women in SF); the last of them, Genetic Bomb (1975) with Andrew J Offutt, introduces Space Opera moves into the mix, in a style that aspires to the gonzo.
