Publisher's Summary

Hain, a sentient plant creature, defies instinct and genetic imperative by holding herself separate from the planet-encompassing vegetative super-intelligence known as the Mother. Hain wants to explore the stars, but when she finally encounters aliens, her destiny is forever changed.

This novelette was originally published in the anthology, The Alien Chronicles. It is longer than a short story, but shorter than a novella. It is narrated by the author and is approximately one hour long.

    "Must hear."

    Absolutely stunning, both the story and the reading. So easy to get pulled into her world. Great to hear sci fi with no humans, but it wouldn't be Jen Wells without a cephalopod!

    "Wonderful, unique perspective!"

    This author gives a unique perspective about symbiotic verses parasitic relationships. She weaves an interesting, intelligent, and believable story which explores the realm of interstellar travel and the interaction between species. I look forward to reading more from this author.

    "Great premise"

    The author does a great job reading this short story. The premise of the story is so new and fresh. This is well worth the read.
