    Note this review is only for 1964 novella The Salivia Tree In 1965 Brian W Aldiss won a Nebula for Best Novella for his story The Saliva Tree It originally appeared In a September 1964 edition of Fantasy and Science Fiction magazine Isaac Asimov was Science Editor The story is a loving homage to H.G Wells Aldiss later became a vice president of the international HG Wells Society The story is told very much in the style of Well s War of the Worlds and maybe even The Time Mach Note this review is only for 1964 novella The Salivia Tree In 1965 Brian W Aldiss won a Nebula for Best Novella for his story The Saliva Tree It originally appeared In a September 1964 edition of Fantasy and Science Fiction magazine Isaac Asimov was Science Editor The story is a loving homage to H.G Wells Aldiss later became a vice president of the international HG Wells Society The story is told very much in the style of Well s War of the Worlds and maybe even The Time Machine The story itself plays out somewhat like War of the Worlds An extraterrestrial object crashes into a farmer s pond Our main character, Gregory, speculates on whether the object is a meteor or a visitor from another world, maybe even utopian socialists, who ve come to show Earth the way When Gregory finally blunders into the large invisible aliens, he gets a hint that they may not be the wonderful creature he thinks they are The story moves from quickly from speculation and wonder, to a chilling, evolving tale of horror Like War of the Worlds the visitors have a significant impact on the ecology around them and their nature and intentions are slowly revealed over the length of the story The plot itself is enriched with some strong character development, including a love interest for Gregory, the farmer s daughter, of course I ll say noof the plot, it s easily experienced through a quick read of this novella I would like to say the story includes some social commentary on the dangers of genetically modified crops, but it was written in the mid 1960 s, so I m probably just projecting The real value and charm of this story is Aldiss ability to write and recapture in the H.G Wells style However, the slow reveal of an increasing horror is fantastic as well A well told tale, well deserving of a Nebula

    I m not too bothered about the rest of the stories in this book but the title novella is superb Its a homage to H G Wells and also reads a little like John Wyndham s Midwich Cuckoos.

    The HG Wells homage story was great but most of the others were quite dull.
