Short stories creepier than they should be

Aldiss' The Saliva Tree: I think it's partly due to the way the narrative almost honors the protagonist's worldview &mdahs; it's pretty much an almost-Lovecraftian tale told from a glancing point of view.

Whatever the reason, I think it'll be a long time before I ever think about farms without shuddering. Even the normal ones, when you think about them from a certain point of view, are unnatural obscenities (and not in the fun way).
