Aliens have landed on this earth, and it is time for the human race to prepare itself. When an unidentified object of extra-terrestrial origins arrives on Earth, creating havoc and panic the world over, the question of whether we are alone in the universe is finally answered. But this realisation is only the beginning, for the object brings with it a whole host of questions that neither the world's governments or military experts are equipped to answer. Is it a danger to humanity, or an innocent explorative device? Focusing on mankind's reaction to this mysterious object, Tilley illustrates how ignorance can drive civilisation towards the brink of a devastating breakdown.
Fade-Out, a sci-fi novel first published in 1975, looks at the meltdown of society in the face of alien invasion.
