Not a bad Return of John Wyndham
on 7 March 2013
A country manor house in Oxfordshire has reappeared after almost a century. The two inhabitants are a wounded veteran of the first world war and one of his workers. A small army unit attached to the the nuclear warfare plant nearby is dispatched to secure the area and penetrate the force field around the house. The story was great and I enjoyed it. It did read very much like John Wyndham and felt like an earlier tale from Simon Morden (who also wrote the very readable Metrozone novels). But it was enjoyable.
