Description

With a new Introduction by Brian Aldiss 'One of the few authors whose compulsive readability is a compliment to the intelligence' Spectator Eleven-year-old Matthew introduces his family to his imaginary friend, a creature called Chocky, who is full of questions about space travel and gravity fields that are unlike any an eleven-year-old boy would ever think of. So when Chocky starts causing Matthew a great deal of distress - and questions at school - Matthew's parents find themselves forced to go to the professionals. But where does this voice come from? And what price will Matthew pay for his unusual friendship? 'Remains fresh and disturbing in an entirely unexpected way'Observer

Author Biography

John Wyndham Parkes Lucas Benyon Harris was born in 1903, the son of a barrister. He tried a number of careers including farming, law, commercial art and advertising, and started writing short stories, intended for sale, in 1925. From 1930 to 1939 he wrote short stories of various kinds under different names, almost exclusively for American publications, while also writing detective novels. During the war he was in the Civil Service and then the Army. In 1946 he went back to writing stories for publication in the USA and decided to try a modified form of science fiction, a form he called 'logical fantasy'. John Wyndham died in March 1969.
