In an Octopus's Garden
by Kevin L. O'Brien
Joshua and Victoria Matisse take an extended vacation cruise in the South Pacific, hoping to conceive a baby. However, beings older than Man target them to be the surrogate parents for the physical incarnation of their alien eldritch god, a fate they cannot escape. This is a short story. It contains foul language, sexual situations, and scenes of intense violence. Reader discretion is advised.
