Opening scene of the movie. People round the world receive envelopes containing mystery seeds. What happens next?

Well at least one person is going to be unable to prevent themselves from planting them so the biological weapon is bound to be unleashed... basically it's Day of the Triffids but without everyone going blind first.
Seriously a weird story that's got lost in all the other crazy stuff going on in the world right now.

I'm sure QAnon will soon have a narrative, Chinese plot aided by the evil US Postal Service to infect trump supporters before the election.

Reminds me of a story I wrote years ago, which involved a mysterious drug arriving spontaneously in people's mailboxes with no apparent source.

Don't know that one. Not Lovecraft, I think. That book has an intro by Stephen King, is it mentioned in that?

Not Lovecraft but H contrasts that story with Lovecraft... I remember him saying that very few readers will be able to put the story down without finding out if the button is pushed and what happens when it is.
Once I got a letter through the post thatjust said "If [my real name] lives here then ring this number" - I rememberI asked my boss at work who was also a mate I guess what I should do... She said "fucking ring it why not" - turned out it was a bailiff looking for me for a debt (luckily not owed by me in the end).
Someone will definitely plant those seeds.

Surely the real question is whether you're supposed to smoke them, make them into a snuff, brew a tea from them or simply bosh them?
