Synopsis for “I Found Monstrom!”
A writer takes his family to Bayou country to begin work on a new novel, but his son encounters a monster in the swamp. The monster is distracted when an alligator bites his leg, so the father and son flee while the monster finishes off the gator. The man drives into town to warn the sheriff, but is scoffed at, until a neighbor backs up his story. When the monster arrives, they find their weapons ineffective, but the creature shies away from fire, and so they drive it back to the quicksand bog in the swamp. Unknown to everyone involved, the creature meant no harm, and was merely seeking aid to repair his damaged spacecraft sunk under the bog.
