Lyhyt elämäkerta
Born in the village of Knowle in Warwickshire, England. After leaving school, Wyndham tried several careers including farming, law, commercial art and advertising, but mostly relied on an allowance from his family. He eventually turned to writing for money in 1925, and by 1931 was selling short stories and serial fiction to American science fiction pulp magazines, most under the pen names of 'John Beynon' or 'John Beynon Harris'. After WWII Wyndham returned to writing. Using the John Wyndham pen name for the first time, he wrote the novel The Day of the Triffids. The book proved to be an enormous success and established Wyndham as an important exponent of science fiction. He went on to write and publish six more novels.

John Wyndham wrote several short stories before World War II under various names, including Lucas Parkes, John Harris, and Lucas Beynon. It was not until after the war that he began to focus on the themes of disaster, invasion, and evolution under the name of John Wyndham and created two of the most well-known stories of our time – The Day of the Triffids and The Midwich Cuckoos. John Wyndham died in 1969, but his works continue to be read as classics of speculative fiction.

This is an intriguing story with an original twist on the invasion trope. It does tend to waffle, however. So much of the book is dialogue between men. Is it a classic? Yes. But it could have had so much more impact if there was more insight into how the mothers felt. The attitude towards, and place of women in this book has not dated well.

This has been on my re-read list for some time. I didn't particularly enjoy it when I first read it as a young teenager - probably because the protagonist, Bill, is a bit of a fussy, nervous type. This time, I loved the cautionary tale of humanity's greed and excess resulting in our downfall. A must-read for all sci-fi fans.

You can live to be three hundred years old! all you have to do is administer a treatment of a biological treatment. Now, the men who do this regard it as a way of retaining power. The women, on the other hand, see it as a way of finally breaking the bonds created by a culture which has not yet found safe contraception. This is the funniest of Wyndham's books

This is a collection of short stories by a single author. Wyndham was British, and he was no fan of space opera, or of the heavily techno-crazy tales being spun im the 1950's on this side of the Atlantic. This collection is a fast forward to the "New Sci-Fi" of the 1960's with a lot of character development and thoughtful asides.
