Herbivore – one who eats only vegetables; carnivore – one who lives by bloody and flesh; and omnivore, who feeds on all things to sustain life.  And so there were three; all human, all held together in an indeterminate love triangle: the man of brawn, the cripple and the woman.  They were scientists on a troubleshooting expedition to the planet Nacre, the silent, dusky planet of multiform mushrooms and spore-clouds, where eighteen had died or disappeared before them.  They were there to explore, discover, record – not really afraid, but then… not really prepared for the awesome secret of Nacre’s mystical third kingdom of fungi.
