We’ll be reading two unrelated shorts in this month’s Salon. In VAMPIRE BATS, a college lecture on bats goes haywire as one student takes it to heart. In FRANKENSTEIN AND THE POLIO GIRL, a visiting preacher is coming to make the polio girl drop her brace and walk but her brother knows their drunken father will screw it up somehow.
