Midweek Fiction: Stephen King, "Beachworld"

We haven't had science fiction here on Midweek Fiction in a while, and there may be some of you who, after reading this story of a shipwreck and a beach, say we still haven't. There may be some of you who say this story is horror. I know it leaves me unsettled.

"Beachworld" by Stephen King was first published in Weird Tales in 1984, and was reprinted in the October 2010 issue of Lightspeed Magazine. After you read it, you may never listen to the Beach Boys in the same way again.
