Celebrate the sixtieth anniversary of one of the earliest science fiction novels by rediscovering Jack Finney’s internationally acclaimed Invasion of the Body Snatchers—which Stephen King calls a story “to be read and savored for its own satisfactions,” now repackaged with a foreword by #1 New York Times bestselling author, Dean Koontz.
On a quiet fall evening in the peaceful town of Mill Valley, California, Dr. Miles Bennell discovers an insidious, horrifying plot. Subtly, almost imperceptibly, alien life-forms are taking over the bodies and minds of his neighbors, friends, family, the woman he loves, and the entire world as he knows it.
First published in 1955, this classic science fiction thriller about the ultimate alien invasion and the triumph of the human spirit over an invisible enemy has inspired multiple film adaptations and entertained readers for decades. This repackaged edition features a new cover by Hugo award–winning illustrator, John Picacio and a foreword by New York Times bestselling author, Dean Koontz.

Jack Finney (1911–1995) was the author of the much-loved and critically acclaimed novel Time and Again, as well as its sequel, From Time to Time. Best known for his thrillers and science fiction, a number of his books—including Invasion of the Body Snatchers—have been made into movies.
Dean R. Koontz, the author of many #1 New York Times bestsellers, lives with his wife, Gerda, and their dog, Trixie, in southern California.
This science fiction classic is expertly narrated by Kristoffer Tabori, who reads the first-person narrative with gritty intensity that will remind listeners of a noir detective novel. And why not? The book was published in 1955 and is the basis of at least three films. It portrays a world whose population is being taken over, person by person, by an alien race. Taboris narration captures the earthiness of the main character, Miles, who is ever smart and practical no matter how strange things get. Tension mounts as people succumb and Miles finds himself more isolated and more desperate to survive. Tabori is interviewed at the end of the audio about the books first film version, which his father directed in 1956. S.D.D.
