“Professor Foxglove’s Fungal Fantasia” is a little zine that tells the story of an ethnomusicologist (who is a fox) wandering into the woods to study the musical cultures of fungi. It starts off real nice, but he ends up encountering some scary stuff, such as a death-cult hive mind slime mold jam band. Some say it’s a cautionary tale about not eating wild mushrooms you can’t ID. Others say it’s a cautionary tale about out-of-touch academics who don’t respect the living cultures that they study — doubly doomed, indeed!
