In 1978, I was at a friends for the weekend--I was 16 and she had this book called Years Best Fantasy 1978. I only remember two stories in there one was a story by Woody Allen about a guy who is able to time travel into books. I loved Woody Allen and his story was quirky. The other one was this story about this guy trying to kill a cat and the cat...well you know. I loved that story because it was creepy and had a very unique awesome ending--I never forgot it. Then a few months ago I was listening to a Stephen King talk where he mentions that he wrote a story about a cat who...well you know and I thought to myself--gee that's like story I read when I was sixteen--did he rip off that idea? So getting back to listening to The Cat From Hell, It sounded more and more like the story I read back in 1978 and it got me wondering so I got online and fished around until I found it---the story I read in Years Best Fantasy 1978 was The Cat From Hell written by Stephen King. Funny how I can't remember any of the other stories in that book but I never forgot his. How can you forget a story like that when the cat actually...well, you know.
