View Full Version : Short Story Collection from the 70s
April 5th, 2007, 10:02 PM
Back in the 70s when I was a member of the Science Fiction Book Club, one of the books they sent was a hard cover collection of short stories about mutations. I think the book title was Mutants but I dunno. One of the stories was about children being born with mutations such as tentacles for arms, etc. Another was about, I think, Earth being flooded by what seemed to be microscopic threads from space...they were molecularly small, but there were so many that the entire globe was buried hundreds of feet (even miles?) deep with them, ending all life on the planet. Another story was about a small rural lake that achieved intelligence, albeit temporarily.
Anyone know the details on this book?
