When a howl has Dr. Smith crying werewolf, he, for once, isn't mistaken. An enchanted family has come to the planet to sow some crops and be on their way. The mother and daughter are enchantresses (witches, if you will) while their clumsy, tongueless lout of a son/brother is a werewolf. Smith suspects none of this. He sees them only a free ride back to Earth and begins wooing the hard-bitten, widowed mother for passage. What is not known about this family is that, once they leave, their ravenous plants left behind will consume all life on the planet. Written by

It's not my fault if this fugitive from a scrap metal yard is incapable of assessing my virtues.
