Sat. Night @ the Movies – John Wyndham: The Invisible Man

This is a fascinating documentary on SF author John Wyndham A.K.A. John Beynon , John Beynon Harris, John B. Harris , Lucas Parkes , Wyndham Parkes , Johnson Harris. He’s most famous for his later novels like Day of the Triffids, The Kraken Wakes, The Chrysilads, and The Midwich Cuckoo. All could be classified as what Brian Aldiss calls Cozy Catastrophes. I’ve only read The Day of the Triffids myself, but found it to be an excellent book. A strange mix of literary and pulp. Literary in it’s cleanness of prose and style. Pulp in it’s “My God, walking plants that are attacking humanity!”.

So he’s best known for his more literary work, but let’s not forget “Tyrant & Slave Girl On Planet Venus” by John Wyndham writing as John Beynon. LOL10storyfantasy!
