COWARD’S PARADISE is a spine-chilling and enthralling science fiction novel. Christopher Hodder-Williams’ powerful insight into the human mind is counterbalanced by the horrifying realisation that technology is taking over our lives.
Christopher Hodder-Williams was an English writer, mainly of science fiction, but he wrote novels about aviation and espionage as well. Before his career in writing, Hodder-Williams joined the army in 1944, and served in the Middle East and lived in Kenya and New York, later settling in the UK. Many of his books are early examples of what would later be called techno-thrillers. He also worked as a composer and lyricist, and wrote numerous plays for television.
