Awards and recognition[edit]

In popular culture[edit]

At a critical juncture in The Dead (2010), the second novel in Charlie Higson's post-apocalyptic series The Enemy, Chris Marker "retreats to the safety of stories". While his surviving classmates argued about whether to seek safer refuge 25 miles away, in London, or in the countryside, "He was reading a science-fiction adventure called Fever Crumb, set in London hundreds of years in the future. He found that reassuring."[1]
