Hows it going? Whilst in junior high school I read a book which was a collection of short stories, science-fiction style.

The story that stuck in my mind has been published in various collections.

It's about a man who crash-lands on a distant planet, only to find out he cannot drink the water or eat anything on this planet, for it is poisonous to his body.

The ending was weird, for the man somehow 'merged' with the planet, becoming one with it.

I had posted a similar thread some time (5 years) ago, looking for the title of this story and/or some of the published works it appeared in.

The title of the story is 'The Enchanted Planet' 'The Enchanted Forest'; or something similar.

Can somebody PLEASE tell me the title of this story, I wish to purchase one of the works it has been published in..:o

It's the 'Enchanted Village' by A.E. Van Vogt. I first read it in the Desination: Universe! collection although I'm sure it has been anthologised in other works, too.
