The Triffid Alley website closed down on the 22 August 2020 which was the 69th anniversary of the first publication of The Day of the Triffids in the United Kingdom.

This website was intended to become a memorial to the author John Wyndham (1903 - 1969).

It takes its name from Triffid Alley in Hampstead, London, which is the only known existing memorial to John Wyndham in the United Kingdom.

John Wyndham was just one of the pen-names used by John Wyndham Parkes Lucas Beynon Harris and it is the books published under this pen-name for which he is best remembered. These mid-twentieth century logical fantasy novels include:

  • The Day of the Triffids
  • The Kraken Wakes
  • The Chrysalids
  • The Midwich Cuckoos
  • The Outward Urge
  • Trouble with Lichen
  • Chocky
  • Web (published posthumously)
  • Plan for Chaos (published posthumously)

As well, three compilations of his short stories were published:

  • Jizzle
  • The Seeds of Time
  • Consider Her Ways and Others
