The Word for World Is Forest

I read this novella a few weeks ago in Again, Dangerous Visions.

Someone had referred me to “In the Barn,” another story in the collection, but I’ve yet to read that or any of the others. I was quite taken with this one, though – it’s one of those that hangs at the edge of your consciousness, eager to be recalled. And it is: almost everything I've read, thought, or written about since has brought it to mind.

There’s also what appears to be a nice expanded version:

I could spend all day talking about the many topical themes, but I assume most people will appreciate it more on their own reading, so I won’t weigh that down with my own interests.
