2021 MARKS THE 70th ANNIVERSARY OF THE DAY OF THE TRIFFIDS, THE MOST FAMOUS CATASTROPHE NOVEL OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY 'When a day that you happen to know is Wednesday starts off by sounding like Sunday, there is something seriously wrong somewhere.'

But another menace stalks blind and sighted alike. With nobody to stop them the Triffids - walking carnivorous plants with lethal stingers - rise up as humanity stumbles and falls . . . With its startling imagery of desolate streets and lurching, The Day of the Triffid's lethal plant life retains its power to haunt today. 'One of those books that haunts you for the rest of your life' Sunday Times 'Has captivated readers for over half a century' Guardian
