September Books 10) The Man Who Fell To Earth

10) The Man Who Fell To Earth, by Walter Tevis

I have seen a few seconds of the film of this book starring David Bowie; the novel was published in 1963. It’s a bleak picture of an almost-human alien from an undiscovered planet in our solar system, sent to Earth to try and save his people. He becomes an alcoholic, goes blind and gives up. Depressing.

    Do any of the guest cast survive in “Warriors of the Deep”? (I’m certainly not watching it again just to find out.)
