This is a book about slime mould. Why, you ask? The weird world of mycology contains some of the most fascinating living complex networks. “If you get as excited about slime mould as I do,” our Editor says, “Don’t be embarrassed. After all, their biology inspired Alan Turing, the father of computer science,” and continues to inspire network scientists everywhere.
The Creeping Garden is an award-winning feature length documentary about slime mould from filmmaker Tim Grabham and writer/film curator Jasper Sharp. This book is an exquisitely designed companion to that film and a must for the network science enthusiast’s desk.
