More Humus than Human
Bizarre things are unfolding in a sleepy Cornish town right in the middle of the annual fruit and vegetable show.
What was once a fun and enjoyable affair of roots, assorted pies, and blue ribbon pickles, has rival green-fingered neighbours turning to an untested miracle fertilizer to win the coveted Rosette. But all hell is about to break loose and it’s up to a team of bumbling locals to put an end to the insidious horror that threatens not just the town, but the whole world.
Can they stop the contamination before it spreads or will the vegetation prove to be un-beet-able?
You won't find any bland veggies in this book. Man-eating marrows and vicious vines are just a few of the nightmares that lurk within the idyllic countryside in this novella of cosmic horror. Weird, disturbing, and brilliantly funny.
Tim Mendees does it again, with this novella that will have you screaming in fear and laughing out loud.
