    SUMMARY The Saliva Tree and Other Strange Growths · PDF DOC TXT or eBook The Saliva Tree and Other Strange GrowthsAn eclectic and brilliant collection of short stories from Aldiss The longest of them the title story was written to celebrate the centenary of the birth of H G Wells and does the job admirably It feels like a Wells story but with added depths of horror cleverly done the implications will haunt you that add a dimension the Edwardian author never uite achieved The second longest tale LEGENDS OF SMITH’S BURST is also a terrifically entertaining yarn with the author’s imagination in overdrive As for the rest they’re variable but all good and make this volume well worth your time
