"In 1947, when Marlon Brando appeared on stage in a torn, sweaty T-shirt, there was an earthquake; and the male as sex object is still at our culture's center stage. In the age of Calvin Klein steaming hunks, it must be hard for [kids today] to realize that there was ever a time when a man was nothing but a suit of clothes, a shirt and tie, shined leather shoes, and a gray, felt hat."

THE HAND THAT CREATES (NOVEL BY OCTAVIO ARAGAO)
Release Date: 2006 (Setting is 19th century)
Horror Crosses: Island of Doctor Moreau; Frankenstein (Octavio Aragao); Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos
Non-Horror Crosses: Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea; A Woman of Thirty; Journey to the Centre of the Earth; Tarzan; From the Earth to the Moon; A Streetcar Named Desire; The Man From Atlantis; Conan the Barbarian
The Story: Jules Verne becomes the first president of France, and the city of Paris becomes a mecca for the greatest scientists.
Notes: This story takes place in an alternate universe, but because it does feature Moreau and the mythos, it must be in the Horror Multiverse. When it comes to worldview issues, it’s a fine line. But Verne as President of France would have a huge historical impact, as is demonstrated in this story, that would alter the present day Horror Universe.
