“That allows you to sow lunatics, as many as you’d like.”

“You mean, like, new people? Or can it turn living people into lunatics?”

“Well, you put four of these seeds in a house. If there are only three people there, they will all go crazy and another will join them. Maybe he’ll be born there, maybe he’ll come in as a traveller. You can’t control exactly how it works.”

“I want it,” she said, and reached for it, but her hand couldn’t find purchase.

“You have to grab it with your mouth,” the storekeeper said.
