From A Bestiary of Imaginary Species edited by Nenad Dragicevic: Skware
The skware was observed for exactly three hours in the summer of 1970 at the four thousand foot level of a nickel mine in northern Ontario. It is the only known sighting of a two dimensional creature. The skware oozed out of the rocks where miners had drilled holes. It floated in the air like a flat mist, then drifted through the head of one of the miners, who screamed and ran. Other miners attempted to capture the skware in a bucket, but failed. They took several photographs. The skware slipped back into the rocks and was never seen again.
