Our featured story is calledThe Moon Weed. It first appeared in Astounding Stories #20 from August of 1931. This week we will hear the conclusion. In part one we met Carl Vanderventer, “Van” for short, who is a scientist that figured out a way to extract items from the moon with ray beams. He unwittingly brings seed pods back and unleashes an army of plant-beasts on the world. He now fights for earth’s very survival and against the tightening web of voracious carnivorous plants that seemingly can’t be killed.
