  • The Veldt


    In The Veldt, George and Lydia Hadley discover that their children's futuristic, telepathic, three-dimensional nursery walls are a little more real than they should be. The room, which displays whatever the children desire, has been showing nothing but African veldt and murderous lions. This short story examines the ideas of an overly mechanized society and the horrors that can lurk in children's psyches.
