The Automaton by David Wheldon

As chapbooks are so short (typically 8 - 18 pages), to give a storyline would spoil the thrill of this spine-tingling tale!

Wheldon’s first novel, The Viaduct, won the Triple First Award and was also shortlisted for the Whitbread Award in 1982.

Peer & Press Reviews

Automata have fascinated over the centuries: the chess-playing Mechanical Turk; the organ-playing La Musicienne…  None would have been as intriguing, or as affecting, as David Wheldon’s emotive Automaton.

David Rose, author of Vault
