Back Cover Blurb
Fantastic, frightening, but entirely plausible, John Wyndham's famous story of a world dominated by monstrous, stinging plants catches the imagination like the best of H.G. Wells.
'One of Great Britain's most serious and literate pioneers of intelligent science fiction... Wyndham always wrote well and imaginatively' — Financial Times
