I just remembered a splendid example of a horror/SF short story this morning. Had to do a little googling to find the title and author: The Little Drummer Boy of Phobos, by Glenn Chandler. It was in the anthology Space 6 back in 1980. I don't even know if I have a copy any more, but it's one of those stories that's always stuck with me. Probably not easy to track down though!

Anyone else remember it?

Cheers, Mike

Is this the one where someone exploring the caverns of Phobos comes across a drummer-boy beating a drum continuously and finds it so annoying that in the end he rips the drumsticks from him only to find out that actually the boy is....

I won't continue in case other readers don't know the ending.

That's the bunny. Long time since I read it, but as I recall it built the atmosphere well, with a nice horror-type revelation at the end.
