"The Specimen!"
A leading scientist in the area of marine life is brought startling new near-humanoid specimens by an odd woman. She claims to be a fellow scientist, but is soon revealed to be a Atlantean, modified to appear human. The scientist pretends to be in love with her in order to keep her as a specimen for study, but soon learns that it is he who is the specimen that she has been sent to collect for her people, who seek to reclaim the surface world. 6 pages (no job #).
Reprinted in Chamber of Chills #18.
