Wyndham, John - Three Novels The Day of the Triffids, The Midwich Cuckoos and The Chrysalids - ( Item 138009 )
Published in London by Folio Society. 2010. First Thus. 3 Fine Hardbacks. No inscriptions or bookplates. Fine slipcase. 3 great works by a master of the science fiction genre. These Folio editions feature superb illustrations by Patrick Leger and each novel is separately introduced by science-fiction writer Adam Roberts. John Wyndham (1903–1969) created some of the most intriguing and intelligent science fiction of the 20th century. His gripping stories show ordinary, sometimes heroic characters reacting to unsettling or disastrous events that call into question the very nature of human society. With Wyndham's writing, science fiction becomes an instrument to force us to look at our own world with fresh eyes and to examine our comfortable assumptions, from human superiority to the permanence of civilisation. These new Folio editions feature superb illustrations by Patrick Leger and each novel is separately introduced by science-fiction writer Adam Roberts, who praises Wyndham's narratives as 'some of the most cunningly wound-up, potently memorable fictions of the century'.
