Corner of Melrose & La Jolla, 8:56am. The Rapture starting?
Wow, is this true? I'm not 100% convinced but what an entertaining read. Achtung!
"Wildfire" was a better title than, "The Grumpy, Ghost-Humping Sodbuster of Yellow Mountain", I guess.
Michael Martin Murphey's "Wildfire" is about a cranky farmer who dreams of fucking a ghost. I'm serious.
.@shelbyfero That's a Low Desert "Cuddle Spider." They like being picked up and stroked. Put your ear close to hear its "happy hiss"!

31 HORROR STORIES -- "The Night Wire" (1926)

@ 1:00 PM

H.F. Arnold was 24 years old when he published this story in WEIRD TALES magazine. Thankfully, the magazine's publisher didn't see the worth of the story, and so didn't make it a cover story and didn't assign an illustrator to render it.

Good. Because this is another business-like, completely realistic tale, about a man working the night shift on a news wire. Your brain will burn a few gears imagining what's only hinted at by the protagonist. He starts receiving reports from a country that doesn't exist, about...something horrible happening.

Or is the country closer than he thinks?
