D.G. Compton is best known for his prescient 1974 novel, The Continuous Katherine Motenhoe, which predicted the 21st century’s obsessions with media voyeurism and ‘reality television’. It was filmed as Death Watch in 1980 by Bertrand Tavernier. This omnibus collects three of his incisive SF novels, Ascendancies, Synthajoy and The Steel Crocodile.
