[Free eBook] The Futureworld Omnibus by Christopher Hodder-Williams [1970s Science Fiction Technothrillers]

The Futureworld Omnibus by the late British author Christopher Hodder-Williams is an omnibus of three vintage science fiction technothriller novels, free for a limited time courtesy of publisher Endeavour Press’ Venture imprint.

This collected edition contains the standalone novels The Thinktank That Leaked, The Chromosome Game, and Coward’s Paradise, two of which were 70s-era early precursors to the modern style of blockbuster technothriller, originally published in 1974, 1979, and 1984 by United Writers Publications & Mithras Publishing.

The separate stories mainly involve then-contemporary characters uncovering disturbing and humanity-altering experiments, from persons undergoing treatment at institutes finding out what’s really being done to their fellow patients, to scientists discovering their colleagues’ less-than-ethical manipulation of human thought and emotional patterns. One novel is set on a future dystopian Earth where a team must locate the remains of a long-ago genetic engineering experiment that may revitalize the human race.

Offered worldwide, available at Amazon.
