Waterstones Says

A collection of five novellas originally published in science fiction magazines, Hothouse is the most complete encapsulation of Aldiss’s futuristic vision. Describing an earth stuck with one side permanently facing the sun, and the desperate quest of a small tribe to cross from light to dark, this is a scintillating slice of ‘golden age’ sci-fi.

The Sun is about to go Nova. Earth and Moon have ceased their axial rotation and present one face continuously to the sun. The bright side of Earth is covered with carnivorous forest. This is the Age of vegetables. Gren and his lady - not to mention the tummybelly men - journey to the even more terrifying Dark side.

One of Aldiss' most famous and long-enduring novels, fast moving, packed with brilliant imagery.
