Author Bio for Wyndham, John

John Wyndham (1903-1969) was an English science fiction writer. 'Wyndham' was the best known of his pen-names, his full name being John Wyndham Parkes Lucas Beynon Harris. Originally trained as a lawyer, he tried several careers before settling on writing. He characterized his books as "logical fantasy". His stories are typically set in normal English life in which some fantastic catastrophe occurs. His best known works include Day of the Triffids, The Kraken Wakes, and The Chrysalids. In particular the word 'triffid' has passed into the lexicon of the English language as referring to any imaginary dangerous plant. (Oxford Companion to English Literature)
