Main Fiction: “The Breakdown of the Parasite Host Relationship” by Paul R. Hardy

Originally published in UFO.

Paul R. Hardy is a fungal infection in the shape of the letter ‘R’ that lives inside the brainstem of an oblivious human meatsack by the name of Paul Hardy. The fungal infection has had work published in Unidentified Funny Objects, Far Fetched Fables and Diabolical Plots, while the human meatsack works as a hospital receptionist in order to provide nutrients for the fungus. Any resemblance between this living arrangement and the content of the story that follows is entirely coincidental.
