The Plant is an unfinished serial novel published in 2000 as an e-book by American author Stephen King.
The novel is about an editor in a paperback publishing house who gets a manuscript from what appears to be a crackpot. The manuscript is about magic, but it also contains photographs that seem very real. The editor writes the author a rejection slip, but because of the photographs, he also notifies the police where the author lives. This enrages the author, who sends a mysterious plant to the editor's office.
The story is told in epistolary format, consisting entirely of letters, memos and correspondence.
