You have read of suspended animation in many stories, and in this one it is used in working out a plot filled with thrilling action and perilous adventure.

Scientists agree that the moon is now a dead world. But who can say that it was not peopled in its early days when it was young and mature while the earth was yet a boiling sphere of hot liquid? The moon, being a smaller globe than the earth, would naturally cool sooner and die sooner. Our earth will ultimately become as our satellite is today.--intro. [Suggest a different description.]

Author Bio for Wyndham, John

Author Image

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 event 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)
