Daily Monster 314: The Old Saybrook Blockheads

Region of origin: Old Saybrook, Connecticut, United States

Sighted in her backyard in 1957, schoolteacher Mary Starr witnessed a cylindrical, brightly-glowing craft hovering over her clothesline and, within it, the occupants: small, largely featureless, rubbery creatures topped by translucent cubes containing glowing red cores. As she watched the ship, the windows of the craft through which Mrs. Starr was viewing the inhabitants disappeared before it’s glowing intensified briefly, then faded back and the ship flew off straight up into the sky.

THE COLOUR OUT OF SPACE
“‘It must be somethin’ from away off in the sky like the men from the college last year says the meteor stone was. The way it’s made an’ the way it works ain’t like no way o’ God’s world. It’s some’at from beyond.’”

“It was a scene from a vision of Fuseli, and over all the rest reigned that riot of luminous amorphousness, that alien and undimensioned rainbow of cryptic poison from the well—seething, feeling, lapping, reaching, scintillating, straining, and malignly bubbling in its cosmic and unrecognisable chromaticism.”
