TEN SCIENCE FICTION NIGHTMARES
By Charles Nuetzel
A VERY CULTURED TASTE
Revis was a cultured man who had managed to survive in a nightmare world, keeping a few treasures clutched closely to him, but at a nasty little price!
MASTER OF THE HOUSE
Every parent has a special place in their heart for their child, even those who are special in a very terrifying way. In such households one has to wonder who is the master and who the slave.
A DAY FOR DYING
He had been picked up by the Social Police and would soon be facing a life & death struggle in an arena telecast throughout the world. Death came to all but the winner - and only one could survive!
THE NOVA INCIDENT
Any similarity between these events and reality may be strictly intentional! A political solution to a war of extinction.
THE IMAGES OF MAN
They came from the skies to take what they claimed was their right to possess - and they only wanted the woman!
PLANET OF THE LOVE FEAST
The crime had been rape and he escaped to a planet full of beautiful woman determined to totally possess him - at a price!
THE HOMO SAP
Well civilization had ended, but this little homo-monk was determined to find a suitable mate - and repopulate Earth with a better breed of intelligent life. Boy was he in for a surprise!
THE WORLD THAT WOMB MADE
Everything was given free, automatically, and all you had to do was follow the rules WOMB made. But for this man the price was too high - he wanted to make his own choices, no matter what it cost!
The salesman came a-knocking at his door, offering a gift too costly to take at any price - yet his price was far too good to refuse! There was only one catch!
THOSE WHO WATCH
Is there some power watching over us that will, ultimately, promise immortality? Here in this final nightmare a suggestion to beware of those who watch, for they might offer far more than we could have expected or imagined!
