speculative prose

Issue 24 Table of Contents

Plants and speculative fiction have always gone hand in hand. From healers to invasive species to the literal grotesque, botanical beings in fiction refuse to be ignored. We’ve dedicated Issue 24 to our fabulous and sometimes fearsome botanical cousins. These growths range from the mundane to the miraculous, but whatever their origin and purpose, their influence is entire.
