I’ve been thinking about writing a review for Paul Stamets’s book Mycelium Running since I read it last fall. It’s an amazing book about fungi, which most people think are simply mushrooms. The reality, as put forth in the book, is that fungi are the internet of the natural world; communicating over long distances and working interconnectedly with other forms of life.
I’m off the hook as the book is reviewed, along with an interview with the author, in the February issue of The Sun Magazine. If you read the book you’ll never look at mushrooms the same way.
