Fishhead (1913)

Irvin S. Cobb

Grim tale of the fate of a deformed half-Negro half-Indian man whose head is shaped like a fish’s and the two bigoted Southern rednecks who set out to kill him. Ugly and violent, even by today’s standards, but all of a piece. One of H. P. Lovecraft’s favorite stories.
