Nightmare Fuel: H. G. Wells
  • A story called The Cone, which is about a steel works manager whose disgruntled employee throws him off of a catwalk onto a red hot metal cone on top of a blast furnace. The story then goes on to describe, in the most gruesomely horrific detail imaginable, how the man is roasted to death.
  • "The Kingdom of the Blind" reverses the above example. The realization that they're better at tracking him blind than he is with both eyes; all he can do is watch. And, of course, why they're tracking him!
