Science Fiction Books/Sci-Fi Book Title?


Hi Sue,

I am struggling to remember the name of a Science Fiction work (a short story, I think) I read years ago...

It is about an planetary explorer who becomes stranded on a planet of nothing but vast green grass planes. Everyday the grass grows higher and higher until it eventually consumes the man and his ship...

Do you know this one?

sorry, never read this one.  good luck finding it.  

My favorite story involving green stuff is Green Patches by Isaac Asimov, also published under the title Misbegotten Missionary.  It appears in the excellent anthology Nightfall and Other Stories.  Available in most public libraries and on Amazon.
