Read in January, 2007 — I own a copy

A spore drops from space and eventually finds itself being eaten by Dan Gurlick who becomes part of the galaxy-wide hive mind that is the Medusa, which then uses him to try and conquer humanity.

This book shares themes with Sturgeon's more famous More Than Human, in that it's about group minds and the future evolution of humanity, and I quite enjoyed it, although it's odd format of one chapter on Gurlick and one on a seemingly random character for much of its length was confusing.

My volume also contained Sturgeon's novella Killdozer!, a fairly entertaining story about a murderous bulldozer.
