The Seeds of Time

Why don't people read John Wyndham? I asked in the pub one evening. It turns out they do, so that's me wrong. There's not a huge amount to say about this charming collection of well-intentioned, funny, and ever so British sci-fi stories, except that I wish I had the edition pictured here, and that I am now really looking forward to reading The Day of the Triffids, which I also bought for €1 in my old shop.

what stories are in that? My memory of JW short stories is that they are often quite grim, with the exemplar of that being the one about the people who are trapped on a malfunctioning spaceship without enough food to last till their rescue.
