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.

The plot moves along rapidly, and contains sufficient detail to horrify without bogging the narrative down. (Dan Brown this ain't!)

I love the underlying principles of the story and although now a little dated in terms of available tech (no hordes of gawping onlookers with camera phones) it's a great picture of a world gone horribly wrong intersecting with ours.

Excellent story.

The books ok, but that's about it. The characters all blend into one after a while, making it a bit confusing to work out who's talking to who. Strange for a modern book, but there's not a single female character among the lead characters. Worth a read if you like the Mythos and you're stuck for something, but there's much better out there.

Rapidly paced novella. Very well written and worthy of a great read. Very weird chief villain and the obligatory giant octopi. Enjoyed it!

This is very much a Quatermass style of scifi advanture. An enjoyable read, not great, but ok.
