Demonic god -- or fish story?
A strange seismic disturbance in the South Pacific has put the world in a frightening mood. Violence is especially high among the peacenicks, as spiritualists morph into savage mobs. Scientists acknowledge that the oceans are shrinking, but nobody can explain why
Chiun knows. It is Sa Mangsang, the Dream Thing, an Elder God disurbed from his slumber who will drink the oceans dry and end life on earth. Harold Smith doesn't buy the supernatural entity theory. He attributes the global bloodlust to the growing pressure and gravitational fluctuations from the water displacement
Steam vents as big as volcanoes burst open around the world. But is it free geothermal power...or a death knell? A typhoon smashes Hawaii; the Amazon is a killer sauna;Rocky Mountain skiers are steamed like clams. Is the world succumbing to a theoretical tectonic hollow...or the will of a giant squid? Either way, it just won a date with Remo, who's ready to fry some calamari.
