"The Monster of the Lighthouse" - The Shiomaki Lighthouse has been having problems for a while now - instead of sending out light every 15 seconds, it has occasionally sent out light every 30 seconds, which has so far resulted in one sunken ship. Now something else has happened: one of the lighthouse keepers has been killed in a way that appears to point to the existence of a monster. A red, squishy, octopus-like monster somehow threw a 300+ lb rock from the sea into the lighthouse, crushing the keeper, and then invaded the lighthouse.
This story definitely captured my attention, but the explanation of what actually happened pissed me off. This is the second story
in a row in which a woman has gone murderously crazy.
At least in the previous story, all the details held together pretty well. This one, on the other hand, was just a mess.
Next up, "The Phantom Wife."
