This was very cute in a way that I like.  The end wasn't particularly surprising, but the tree 'people' were a true delight - nice bit of imagining there.  I liked it quite a bit.

Again this was a brilliant story. Truly unique and disturbing. I fully agree with the comments made by the poster "I will never find a serial killer quite like this tree". The twin aspects of cuteness and horror is an original expereince for me and I look forward to further work from Buchanan.

Cheers, Matt

You said it, Jean! That's why I picked it for anotherealm. It's one of the best stories I've had the honor of choosing for our forum and I will be VERY disappointed if we don't get some comment about it. I honestly believe that this tale would have found print in some of the fabled "pulps' of a past publication era.

So, how about it, AR? Feedback on this gem, please. Let Milan know how much you enjoyed his work and let me know that I made a good choice.

It is a good story. I would give it 3 or 3.5 stars out of 5. The reason for not giving it full 5: I found it a little too wordy. In my personal opinion, a tighter, minimalistic approach would have worked wonders.

An entertaining story.
Gives us a new angle on understanding others, and ourselves.
Thumbs up for Growing Humans.
