Brian Aldiss Synopses: The Brightfount Diaries is a standalone novel by Brian Aldiss. In a small provincial city, Peter lives with his long-suffering Aunt Anne and his eccentric Uncle Leo, and works in a bookshop called Brightfount’s, which he describes as a “shabby outpost of literacy.” Cutting the apron strings, he moves into a bed-sit and composes these witty diaries, in which he includes amusing remarks about publishers, authors, booksellers and customers, a revelation about his dotty uncle, and his efforts to find “a suitable girl.”

Hothouse by Brian Aldiss is a standalone title. The Sun is about to go Nova. Earth and Moon have ceased their axial rotation and present one face continuously to the sun. The bright side of Earth is covered with carnivorous forest. This is the Age of vegetables. Gren and his lady – not to mention the tummybelly men – journey to the even more terrifying Dark side.

In Dracula Unbound by Brian W. Aldiss, two men transcend the dimension of time and save a dying world in a battle against the most elusive and deadly creatures ever to stalk the earth.
