Sandkings

Here's a story I read a long time ago, in OMNI magazine. It's about a guy who really likes his pets.

I couldn't find any other place to put it, so I hope this is OK.

TV episode about that.

Yeah, there was an Outer Limits (I think the very first new one) - but they changed the story. The original was much better.

I subscribed to OMNI back in the day and recall this story. It's great!
