Mila | 1 comments I read this book around the later 90s to early 2000s. It is a book of short sci fi stories. One of the stories involved a world in which lumber/wood was running out so scientists came up with a way to make trees grow very quickly. Turns out the lumber those trees produced was useless and the trees grew so quickly that they "screamed" as they grew. The trees were also taking over the world essentially. The narrator was a girl who could hear the trees screaming from her window.

Another story involved immortality. A drug that enabled immortality was discovered. A young man took the drug from a long time friend. As he was walking away the man was crushed by some construction for a building site. He wakes up later still crushed with the realization that he's stuck there alone forever because he cannot die. I believe the friend sees this happen and walks away leaving him to his fate.
