Beware the Crab People!

posted by on November 3 at 18:00 PM

This went up on Fortress of Solitude on Halloween, but I think the story still works as a nice pre-election-day diversion. It’s called “They Crawl by Night,” and it’s one of those weird twisty horror stories that used to be all the rage in the funnybook world:


This particular twisty horror tale is especially noteworthy, though: It’s a collaboration by the always-wonderful Basil Wolverton and Dan Keyes, who would later write Flowers for Algernon. These are some pretty great comics.

That's good stuff.

Something of a tangent: "Flowers for Algernon" was in The Science Fiction Hall of Fame, Volume One. It was a little bizarre seeing such good stories like that one and "Surface Tension" alongside stupid crap like "Born of Man and Woman" and "It's a Good Life" in an anthology that was supposedly all winners.
