Trench Torso doesn't like you, so he wants you to read this, his first piece of short fiction; A Crèche of Soggy Flesh. He asked Jonathan Chandler to draw pictures for it and feels he did an excellent job.

“We've gotta have some Horror Comics
again!” cried publisher Douglas Noble, obsessed, as he stumped in from
graveyard and thrust his newspaper into the fire. He smashed at
the bare bulb that lit his squalid Dusseldorf apartment with the butt
of his pistol.
The already dingy room was plunged into blackness. “There's too much
*%$* out there and I'm gonna do something about it!” he muttered,
rummaging in the bulb-box for a replacement. Bodymaster Desdemona
handed him some jam on toast. His fingers touched the sticky side first
and he screamed, “What are you trying
to do to me!”
What you see here - the revived Pocket
Chiller series, is the result of Douglas' outburst!
