Read as part of the Retro Hugos nomination packet.

I generally like Theodore Sturgeon quite a lot. This story was OK, but it wasn't one of his best. It's an early work from him, and it fits more snugly in the pulp genre than his more complex later work.

A strange fungus-monster develops sentience, and animates a human corpse, going on a violent rampage in a rural area, wreaking havoc on one family in particular. One little girl has no idea the danger she is in. But her childish innocence is nothing to the curious amorality of the monster...
