Really nice to see that.
At the same age as I read the Tripods I also read John Christpher's The Lotus Caves, a short and really haunting YA SF novel set on the moon. Empty World was another good one.

The ones I really wanted to read were the Sword of the Spirits trilogy, set in post-apocalyptic Winchester, more or less where I grew up. Unfortunately the local library did not have them.
 
I read the Tripods about 20 years ago and thought the trilogy quite good. :cool:
