Midwich cuckoos by John Wyndham( file )
12 editions published between 2000 and 2009 in English and held by 177 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
