John Collier, The Land Baby, 1909
Anything that suggests a hybrid of human and animal scares me; specifically marine life/ human crosses. I once had a dream where I was walking along a pebble strewn beach and when I looked down I saw a little creature that was octopus like with a little human head that resembled mine. I bent down closer and it was crying out, much like the creature in "The Fly", "Help Me!", in a high whiny voice. I don't remember anymore even though I have had this dream many times. I am pretty sure it was originally a dream?
