In the autumn of 1954, Meredith Cherry, 18, a nice girl in a small east Ohio town, becomes convinced that the Creature From The Black Lagoon, a character in a horror movie she has seen at the Drive In while losing her virginity to her boyfriend, is coming into her house at night and creeping into her bedroom. Realizing that she's become pregnant, she tries to decide what to do. How can she tell her father? Should she run off with the Creature? Did the Creature push her boyfriend in front of a speeding train? Could she be happy living with the Creature at the bottom of the Lagoon? Meredith also appears in Frankenstein, Lemurian Fragments, and Andromeda Chained Naked To Her Rock.
