Biologically engineered sentient plants raised for food, that walk, sting and feast on carrion, prey on mankind after most humans are blinded by malfunctioning secret military satellites orbiting the earth.

Wells' catastrophe novels, especially with THE WAR OF THE WORLDS, to which it bears some striking resemblances." - Magill (ed), Survey of Science Fiction Literature, p. 506. "This tale of monsters from a botched experiment marching over the world is a superior example of its breed." - Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-1296. Runner-up for the 1952 International Fantasy Award. Basis for two films, a feature in 1962 and a made for television movie in 1981. Anatomy of Wonder (1995) 3-199. Pringle, Science Fiction: The 100 Best Novels 5.
