Wednesday’s Horrors #7 – Ramsey Campbell’s Glaaki.
“From an oval body protruded countless thin, pointed spines of multicolored metal; at the more rounded end of the oval, a circular thick-lipped mouth formed the center of a spongy face, from which rose three yellow eyes on thin stalks. Around the underside of the body were many white pyramids, presumably used for locomotion. The diameter of the body must have been ten feet at its least wide… long stalks [were] twisting above it … [the] shape towered, pulsing and shaking with deafening vibration … a spine stiffened toward [a victim].”
