Summary (From the publisher):

Long before the publication of The Secret Life Of Plants, writers of vast imagination had seen that there was more to plant life than met the naked eye - that plants are capable of thought, of passion, of hate, of action, of striking terror in the strongest heart...

Roots Of Evil is a spine-tingling collection of creepy tales by such writers, a powerfully convincing argument that plants are more alive, more aware than we think. Read, then, the twelve stories in this book:

  • Introduction by Carlos Cassaba (Michel Parry)
  • The Seed From the Sepulchre by Clark Ashton Smith
  • The Flowering of the Strange Orchid by H.G. Wells
  • Rappaccini's Daughter by Nathaniel Hawthorne
  • Dorner Cordaianthus by Hester Holland
  • Come Into My Parlour by Manly Wade Wellman
  • The Tree's Wife by Mary Elizabeth Counselman
  • The Ivy War by David H. Keller
  • Green Thoughts by John Collier
  • Dr. Adams' Garden of Evil by Fritz Leiber
  • Daisies by Fredric Brown
  • The Gardener by Margaret St. Clair
  • Green Thumb by Clifford D. Simak

Stories that will sow the seeds of doubt in your mind - Still think that plants are just pretty faces?.
