Review

It falls from the heavens and crashes to earth in the remote southern Appalachian Mountains.

The alien roots creep into the forest, drawn by the intoxicating cellular activity of the humus and loam. The creature feeds on the surrounding organisms, exploring, assimilating, and altering the life forms it encounters. Plants wilt from the contact, trees wither, animals become deformed monstrosities, and people . . . .

People become something both more and less than human.

In Nicholson's Harvest, he uses the perfect mix of Night of the Living Dead and Invasion of the Body Snatchers.
This book may be loosely based on B horror flicks, but it gets a straight A from me.
