MADAME ATOMOS

by André Caroff

Brian Stableford


"You are a murderer, Mr. Maxwell! The United States is inhabited by a population of murderers! Your country is a realm of corruption, gangsterism, vice, racism and crime! Your women do the housework for you and get drunk in bars! You kill men like Lincoln and Kennedy, when no foreigner would have touched a hair on their heads! Mr. Maxwell, you will die slowly, and you will be able to watch yourself die! Your muscles are already dead. Soon, your nerves will be; then your blood will coagulate in your veins. Your heart will cease to beat, but for a few seconds, your brain will continue to function. Those few seconds will be horrible, Mr. Maxwell-horrible! And I hope you enjoy them! Compliments of Madame Atomos, Mr. Maxwell!"

MADAME ATOMOS

by André Caroff
adapted by Michael Shreve


George screamed when the beast suddenly appeared at the top of the stairs. What he saw was a black, frizzy mane, long pointed teeth, claws like curved swords and a blood-dripping snout. He tried to escape the bewildering vision, but as he turned around, he felt a huge weight crush down on him. He collapsed, spilling blood from his grisly wounds. He was already a corpse by the time the beast ran off down the stairs where it jumped on Pam who was too petrified to scream.
