The Voice of the Sonar in My Vermiform Appendix
Genre Science Fiction
Type Short story
Series Polytropical paramyths
DESCRIPTION:
Philip José Farmer in his foreword: "Polytropical Paramyths: 'Many -turning alongside-of-myth'. This high-sounding label stands for short stories which are closer to the films of the Marx Brothers and The Three Stooges than anything else I can think of."
In this case a story about the useless function of the appendix, reason why the genes of men had been altered to get rid of it. Then one man still has the genes to grow an appendix, which is bothering him very much with strange sounds. How come he still got an appendix and what is happening with it?
