Brian W. Aldiss æ 3 read review The Saliva Tree and Other Strange Growths 103 Cover artist A PedroBrian Aldiss marked the centenary year of H G Wells' birth with this ingenious novella combining comedy terror and intriguingly late nineteenth century period charm In a sleepy East Anglian. The original invisible alien vampire steam punk story Accept no imitations

characters The Saliva Tree and Other Strange Growths

Brian W. Aldiss æ 3 read review The Saliva Tree and Other Strange Growths 103 Ks the advice of Mr Wells Nine short stories complete the collection including the highly autobiographical 'Girl and Robot With Flowers' which was taken up as a seminal story demarcating the new SF from the old. An 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
