Currently reading "the Kraken wakes" by John Wyndham. Its pretty good.
I'd never really heard of him till a couple of months back, when I picked up a copy of "the Chrysalids" in a charity shop and got totally sucked into it. When I finished I went on a bit of a mission to check out his other books! They tend to be fairly short reads, not great on characters particularly, but really big on ideas, imagination and plot.
Its a bit of a cliche, but if you fancy giving one a try I'd suggest "day of the triffids" - I'd seen some tv shows based on it and I therefore expected the book to be a cheese-fest (killer plants! run!), but its a surprisingly subtle book that really gets you biting your nails and doesn't go in the direction you think it will.
