The day of the triffids by John Wyndham( Book )
249 editions published between 1951 and 2014 in 12 languages and held by 3,332 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Bill Masen, bandages over his wounded eyes, misses the most spectacular meteorite shower England has ever seen. Removing his bandages the next morning, he finds masses of sightless people wandering the city. He soon meets Josella, another lucky person who has retained her sight, and together they leave the city, aware that the safe, familiar world they knew a mere twenty-four hours before is gone forever." "But to survive in this post-apocalyptic world, one must survive the Triffids, strange plants that years before began appearing all over the world. The Triffids can grow to over seven feet tall, pull their roots from the ground to walk, and kill a man with one quick lash of their poisonous stingers. With society in shambles, they are now posed to prey on humankind. Wyndham chillingly anticipates bio-warfare and mass destruction, fifty years before their realization, in this prescient account of Cold War paranoia."--Jacket

Midwich cuckoos by John Wyndham( )
14 editions published between 1983 and 2009 in English and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Midwich cuckoos is one of the more scary and realistic sci fi stories of all time, filmed on at least two occasions as Village of the damned. Set in a village in Gloucester England all the local young women become pregnant at exactly the same time and give birth to these evil blonde blue-eyed babies. The Midwich cuckoos is one of John Wyndham's best known works along with The day of the Triffids and The kraken wakes. Probably better known as The village of the damned, the title of the two films of the novel, the story centers around the village of Midwich when one afternoon an event happens that changes the lives of its inhabitants for ever. The Midwich cuckoos, first published in 1957, is well ahead of its time. Set in the present, it is one of the all time great science fiction novels
