I know what you’re thinking, what does our Jeff have to do with Speculative fiction?

June 1977, where the original short story was published.
June 1957, where the original short story was published.

Well! Stumbling across the fact that today is Jeff’s birthday lead me on to think about a film that traumatized me as a child, the one the only “The Fly”.  So I dug a little and found out that “The Fly” was a short story by George Langelann published in Playboy in June, 1957.  It was then first released as a film in 1958 followed by a couple of sequels and remade with our Jeff in 1986.  Interesting stuff right? Thanks to Alan Cook you can read “The Fly” below:
