On the Isle of Wight, a colony of survivors wakes to a world plunged into darkness. Before long, the triffids, thought safely out of the way on the mainland, attack. In John Wyndham’s classic bestseller The Day of the Triffids, the world has been overwhelmed by killer plants. As the novel ends, scientist Bill Masen is escaping with his wife and four-year-old son to the Isle of Wight where a small colony of survivors is holding out.

The Night of the Triffids picks up the story twenty-five years later.

The survivors are safe, for the time being at least, on their island, where they have continued efforts to combat the triffids, while also striving in various ways to build a new civilization. Elsewhere in the world, similar colonies cling to survival, while the triffids persist in their attempts to destroy humanity.

One morning Bill Masen’s son, David, now grown up, wakes to a world plunged into darkness. Now the triffids have an advantage over humanity.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Inventive and fast moving—good old-fashioned fun.”

    Washington Post

  • “Readers will relish Clark’s uncomplicated cocktail of chlorophyll and human blood. Clark’s narrative is particularly well paced…The Night of the Triffids makes salutary reading for anyone who has noticed—as John Wyndham did—that advanced industrial civilization exists in a fragile condition of unstable equilibrium.”

    Financial Times (London)

  • “The world’s most famous killer plants are back and nastier than ever in The Night of the Triffids, Simon Clark’s authorized sequel to The Day of the Triffids…It is the sections where [Clark] gives rein to his own invention that really grip.”

    Guardian (London)

  • “Clark has faithfully recreated Wyndham’s style, and he quotes or inverts many themes and events from the original. The writing is crisp and unfussy…while the pace of the story is breakneck and the climax exhilarating.”

    Scotsman (Edinburgh)

  • “Clark manages to combine his voice almost seamlessly with that of John Wyndham.”

    SFX (UK)

  • “This crafty continuation is elegant in its construction. Clark’s prose is clean, thoughtful, and perfectly suited to his faux doomsday-memoir approach. Less cautionary than the original but more literary than many books of its ilk, this is a truly enjoyable voyage.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Clark…retains a feel for sf pulp horror in an action-filled tale that captures the spirit of the original story. Recommended for most sf collections.”
