Raj Dronamraju | 11 comments Hi, I am looking for the name of a short story about a scientist who shrinks himself down to enter the world of microbes he views through his microscope. At the end, the story takes a horror turn as he is eaten by one of the microbes.

Raj, what's the genre - e.g., horror, science fiction, fantasy for adults or teens?

Did you read this in a short story anthology? (Theme of the book? Single or multiple authors?)


[on hiatus] The rockabilly werewolf from Mars | 1527 comments I'm sure I've read this, but I can't remember the name off hand. I might have it in an anthology somewhere; if I do, I'll tell you.

Raj Dronamraju | 11 comments Kris it was in an anthology (can't remember the name of the anthology) and it was a horror story with a twist ending


[on hiatus] The rockabilly werewolf from Mars | 1527 comments I may have found it: The Jellyfish by David H Keller. I have it in American Fantastic Tales: Terror and the Uncanny from Poe to the Pulps, it may be in other places as well, I don't know.
