Summary
John Wyndham is one of Britain's most popular science fiction authors. His quietly menacing post-apocalyptic novels transcended the genre, appealing not only to fans of SF but also to a mainstream audience. "The Day of the Triffids" is set in a world in which most people have been left blind after a meteor shower and lethal carnivorous triffids are roaming the land. "The Kraken Wakes" is a gripping story of monsters from the deep, alien invasion, and ecological disaster. "The Chrysalids" explores the dangers of being different, while "Survival" focuses on the lengths people will go to in order to survive. "The Midwich Cuckoos" is a disturbing tale of a village sealed off from the world for a day and subsequently taken over by terrifying, inhuman creatures. "Chocky" is a chilling tale of a boy who appears to be communicating with an invisible friend. Is Chocky more than a figment of Matthew's imagination? Also included is "Beware the Stare" a half-hour BBC Radio 4 documentary looking at "The Midwich Cuckoos" in print and on screen
