The year begins with something from the late 50s!
Well, I finally finished it!(I'm a slow reader, I rarely get the time to myself, not that I'm complaining!)
It was an OK read, not exactly thrillling, kind of quiet SF, which I believe is typical of the author-understated. It got a bit of a chore in parts, being written in the 50s the language was a bit long winded compared to modern standards but it was reasonably entertaining.
This book formed the basis of the horror movie 'Village of the Damned'
