Description

In the sleepy English village of Midwich, a mysterious silver object appears and ll the inhabitants fall unconscious. A day later the object is gone and everyone awakens unharmed - except that all the women in the village are discovered to be pregnant. The resultant children of Midwich do not belong to their parents- all are blond, all are golden-eyed. They grow up too fast and all their minds exhibit frightening abilities that give them control over others. This beings them into conflict with the villagers just as a chilling realization dawns on the world outside. . . The Midwich Cuckoos is the classic tales of aliens in our midst, exploring how we respond when confronted by those who are innately superior to us in every conceivable way. 'Exciting, unsettling and technically brilliant' - Spectator

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.
