This is the earliest story that I know of by John Wyndham. He wrote it before selling his first published book, The Day of the Triffids. It is vintage, old-fashioned science fiction; nevertheless, it is well written and the one notable female in the story* is treated as a brave, intelligent, and independent character. That in itself was rare in the 1930s.

*There are two: intrepid heroine and cowardly wife.

However, it is very old-fashioned science fiction: read it only if you're determined to read all of Wyndham's works. ( )
