The story of an alien invasion from the author of Day of the Triffids. This is subtle stuff though; strange things begin to happen, ships start to go missing and gradually the sea is no longer safe and the icecaps melt, but we never actually see the aliens. This is a wonderful evocation of the uncertainties and paranoia of a post-imperial, cold war world in which technology and the information revolution are still in their infancy.
