This 1975 speculative fiction anthology has the theme of monsters from outside human experience. The question of what lies in the outer darkness has haunted humanity since we developed imaginations. These nine stories look at the possibilities, from implacable enemies, to beings a lot like us in the end.

“The Worm” by David H. Keller is set in a remote Vermont valley that has become depopulated, leaving only an old miller. He no longer runs the millstone, but one night he notices a grinding vibra

I have a hardback version of this. Reprints of stories from the pulp era. I thought it had some really good stuff in it by David H. Keller, Theodore Sturgeon, and donald Wollheim.

I loved the psychedelic aliens on this book's cover though they didn't seem to feature in any of these stories. Carr did a great job picking these tales. Three of my favorites include The Mimic, The Street That Wasn't There, and Dear Devil. Apparently they made a movie based loosely on The Mimic. But I fear it doesn't capture Donald Wolheim's ingenious plot featuring another species living as a human in the human world.
