Publisher's Summary

Walking death, they're called.
And those horrible macadamia trees.
But their real names are Whig, Mary Jane, and Quetzalcoatl, just to name three of them.
Trees don't walk. But here they do. In Ill Met by Moonlight they walk, they kill, they eat people, and then they're....
Telling you more would spoil the fun.
Welcome to this horror collection about the walking macadamia nut trees of Hawaii. Believe it or not, you're going to laugh. A new addition to the humorous horror genre.

Hilarious and fantastic!

A fun listen from beginning to end! Written in a similar fashion to Ray Bradbury's The Martian Chronicles, which guarantees something everybody will enjoy (even if you don't like the whole thing, you'll probably like at least one story). Bill Oberst Jr brings the stories to life with unique voices and a wonderfully smooth way of talking that really engages the listener. Dramatic and comedic timing was downright perfect and I thoroughly enjoyed his Winnie-The-Pooh-sounding cat. Gretchen Rix leaves plenty to the imagination while also managing to build a unique world around the concept of walking, talking, murdering macadamia trees that (unlike most horror stories) doesn't end in the total annihilation of the threat in question. I enjoyed it immensely and I highly recommend it to anyone who likes a creative concept (or to those who know a good tree).

We are not alone!

Plant life is alive and well living alongside us in our existence. They have natural defense mechanisms that are meant to protect them from being eaten by us, such as lectins, phytates, and oxalates. Enough micro nutrition, the point is, this book offers some insightful views about how plants and people may need to eventually get on board together. I enjoyed the detailed writing that incorporated lots of action, sensory imaging, and as always the narrative stylings of Bill O'Berst Jr added amazing depth and colour to the characters, as well as the Trees!!! I thought the idea of using a Macadamia tree was brilliant. Their menacing leaves and seed pods play into a tree that might give you some fits; like a Magnolia tree with its many weapons. Overall the author, Gretchen
Nix, shows the connection that we all have on each other and warns us to make sure we weigh all the consequences before we act. I enjoyed the Brown Betty recipe and always appreciate a shoutout to the great Magnum PI!!!
