An excerpt from Joe Wehrle, Jr.’s review of the Hothouse series, from The Digest Enthusiast book six:

[In “Evergreen”] Yattmur and Gren have a child. Gren has become more and more distant and inhuman under the influence of the morel. The morel is soon to sporulate, and it wants to transfer itself to the young, strong child, which can carry it back to the sunlit world for seeding.
