That Damned Triffid Sale - Well, at Amazon US Anyway

The Day of the Triffids - John Wyndham The Midwich Cuckoos - John Wyndham

This has been on my watch list ever since I realized there was an ebook version. I have NO idea what the book is like - I only have a childhood fondness for the film, in which (as I saw them) giant walking broccoli were wiping out mankind. (I have since made my peace with broccoli and we get along famously.)

I will be content with either serious scifi or something cheesy. Will report back on that later.


Also on sale at 1.99, the book that resulted in the film Village of the Damned (same author):
