"Some white hair was visible, sticking out between two hardened black shells where his head should be. Something tube-like wiggled near his belly, seeking purchase.

"Jack moved the light from one end of the captain to the other, the glistening wet ebony of th ecrustaceans reflecting back at him like hateful eyes. Tentacles moved in and out of the shells all along the corpse, and the great belly appeared to be swelling and sinking as if the old man were still breathing under there."
Philip Fracassi, Sacculina
 I had a ton of fun with this one and really got into some meditative places with the details on this guy. This story was a real good quick read and reminded of some of my favorite creature features: The Blob (1988), Leviathan (1989), Creepshow 2; The Raft.
