Description

Skim photographed over Spottsylvania, Kentucky c. 1947

And above the treetops sailed a round, flat thing, like a big plate being pitched high. A Skim. Then another Skim. And the blood inside my body was cold and solid as ice, and my voice turned to a handful of sand in my throat.


Manly Wade Wellman's "The Desrick on Yandro (fiction)"

A Skim is a strange, saucer-shaped, flying creature of the Appalachian backwoods, capable of gliding very quietly through the skies, and capturing land animals and people for food with dangling tentacles.


Keeper Notes

  • City folks who don't know any better have been known to mistake encounters with the Skim with "flying saucer" space-ships full of aliens, not realizing there is a far more sinister and malevolent explanation for the weird, saucer-shaped objects in the sky, the periods of lost time, and the horrific nightmares afterward.... (fan theory)
