This early work by David H. Keller was originally published in 1929 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography as part of our Cryptofiction Classics series. 'The Worm' is a short story about a giant worm that begins to eat a house and the occupant has to decide at what point to move out. David Henry Keller was born in Philadelphia in 1880. He studied neuroscience at the University of Pennsylvania's School of Medicine, graduating in 1903. He produced eleven novels and more than fifty short stories, as well as a body of poetry and some non-fiction. Most of his work is regarded as far more complex and literary than that of his contemporaries, thereby foreshadowing the science fiction 'golden age' of the mid-20th century.
