Readers & Writers - May/June 1966

If you have any info or scans of the above, please email me!

Bogus Alert
There's a newer book out called "Dragons: The Greatest Stories" which on the ebay info page lists Koontz as one of the authors - to the best of my knowledge he is NOT.

There is also a 2003 paperback edition of Kirby McCauley's "Frights" which has Koontz listed on the actual cover image of the book as one of the authors - the real book does NOT.

This Fence

"There was this fence were we pressed our suntanned faces and felt the wind turn warm and held to the fence and forgot who we were and where we came from but dreamed only of who we might be and where we might go..."

A Miracle Is Anything

"The forty-foot, sixty-eight hundred pound madonna had been standing on the red-brown hillside for three hundred years.  For a trio of centuries, the Mexican wind had battered her, the seasonal rains had washed and rewashed her face, but the weathering seemed not to faze her.  The elements, storming and ranting, gentle and insidious, had served only to smooth her delicate features into a kind of soft mask.  Her face was pale as white marble, her smile gentle, her left hand clutched to her sacred heart, her right hand raised in the two-fingered blessing.

The Virgin of Aguascalientes."

Some Disputed Barricade

"It was his birthday, and he knew that two things would happen when he went home.  Laura and the children would have dinner and a cake for him, and the android from Population Control  would come trundling up the walk shortly after to blast a hole through his head, right between the eyes, in three seconds flat"

Love 2005

HERBIE WAS OH SO INNOCENT!
BUT ALSO- WAS HE DETERMINED!

"This is a story about a boy soon to turn into a man, about a girl who measured 42-23-36, and a considerable misunderstanding on the part of the former, whom we shall call Herbie Cohen, for that was his given name.  He was twenty years of age and not yet a man because he had been coddled through infancy, adolescence, and what should have been his early manhood.

Now, I'm certain you men will read this because certain numbers have already grabbed your attention and appeal to you because of this wonderful bi-sexual planet we live on.  And you women out there will read this too - partly out of envy at first."

Sinless Child

THE SINLESS CHILD EXPERIMENT:

June 21, 2020.
The five of them arrived promptly a 9 o'clock: Highet and four doctors.  They shut Amelia and me out of the lab suite and covered over the viewports.  They did not come out again for more than 6 hours, and when they did show themselves, none of them looked happy.

"Well?" I asked Highet.  Amelia stood close, her arm around me, needing to touch.  Truthfully  I required her nearness as much as she did mine.

"It's as bad as you feared," he said.  "We've been careful about it - to be sure we were getting the true results from the tests.  He's an enormously self-assured child - but only because he sees no limits to his control of the world around him and expects no ill consequences for his deeds.  He is so thoughtlessly amoral that he is extremely dangerous...

A child could not be raised in ignorance of all evil - or 'sin' - without losing all his value judgments."

After 1116 years in empty space could the crewmen adjust to the claustrophobia of a new earth-like planet?

"At the window, Tucker blanched at the sight of the tiny land beyond and turned quickly away again.  Life out there, in the dirt and heat and oppressive gravity seemed impossible.  Much better, the gleaming, self-repairing starship with its frictionless machines that would never wear out.

Yet he had to learn to face it, had to come to grips with reality and initiate the colonization for which the entire trip had been made..."

Night Of The Storm

"Halfway down toward the valley floor, the tunnel between the trees narrowed drastically.  The trees loomed closer, spread their boughs lower.  And it was here, in these tight quarters, in the deepest shadows, that they were attacked.

Something howled in triumph, its mad voice echoing above the constant whining of the wind."

We Three

"The Government had assigned a contingent of twelve Marines and eight plainclothes operatives to our house.  Supposedly, these men were to guard us and keep us from harm.  Actually, they were there only to be sure that we remained prisoners.  When we were finished with Mother, we dragged these other bodies onto the lawn and cremated them one at a time.

Jonathan was exhausted.  He sat down between two smoldering skeletons and wiped sweat and ashes from his face.  Maybe we made a big mistake."

"Mistake?" Jessica asked.  She was immediately defensive.

"Maybe we shouldn't have killed all of them," Jonathan said.

Jessica stamped one foot.  Her golden ringlets of hair bounced prettily.  "You're a stupid bastard, Jonathan!  You know what they were going to do to us.  When they discovered just how far-ranging our powers were and just how fast we were acquiring new powers, they finally understood the danger we posed.  They were going to kill us...

...we three are higher on the ladder of evolution than anyone who came before us."

Down In The Darkness

Darkness dwells within even the best of us.
In the worst of us, darkness not only dwells but reigns.

"I am a good man.

But the temptation is great.

I have begun to prepare a list of people who have, at one time or another, made my life difficult.  I don't intend to do anything about them, of course.  The list is merely a game.  I will make it and then tear it to pieces and flush the pieces down the toilet.

I am a good man.
The list means nothing.
The cellar door will stay closed forever.
I will not open it again.
I swear by all that's holy.
I am a good man.

The list is longer than I had expected."

Hardshell

"Skagg reached out with his right hand in such a way that for one disconcerting moment it seemed to Frank that the killer was going to change tactics and begin pleading for his life.

Then the hand began to change.  The palm grew longer, broader.  The fingers lengthened by two inches.  The knuckles became thicker, gnarled.  The hand darkened until it was singularly unhealthy, mottled brown-black-yellow.  Coarse hairs sprouted from the skin.  The fingernails extended into wickedly sharp claws.

"So tough you were.  Imitation Clint Eastwood.  But you're afraid now, aren't you, little man?  Afraid at last, aren't you?""

Miss Attila The Hun

"Through frost and thaw, through wet and dry seasons, the thing on the forest floor had waited many hundreds of years for a chance to live again.  Not that it was dead.  It was alive, aware, always alert to the passage of warm-blooded creatures in the dense woods around it...

Deer, bears, badgers, squirrels, chipmunks, rabbits, possums, wolves, mice, foxes, raccoons, cougars, quail that had strayed in from the fields, dogs, toads, chameleons, snakes, worms, beetles, spiders, and centipedes had passed near enough to the thing to have been seized if they had been suitable.  Some, of course, were not warm-blooded, which was one of the creature's primary requirements of a host.  Those that did have warm blood - the mammals and the birds - did not meet the other important requirement: a high order of intelligence.

The thing did not grow impatient.  It had found hosts in one form or another for millions upon millions of years.  It was confident that it would eventually have an opportunity to ascend from its cold dreams and experience this new world, as it had experienced - and conquered - many others."

Strange Highways

"P. J. had been the best brother in the world.

But he was also a brutal killer.

Joey couldn't reconcile those two facts.  It would've been easy to go mad trying.

Remaining on his knees on the top of the altar step, Joey released the dead woman's cold wrist.  From the touch of her flesh, in a manner almost mystical, he'd received a dreadful and shattering revelation..."
