The manuscript of Charlie is held at the Raymond H Fogler Library in box 1010 of the special collections, it is, therefore, inaccessible without written permission from King himself. The story consists of six pages (3900 words), but the story ends mid paragraph and a note states that there are missing pages. The story concerns an asteroid miner who discovers a pink cube. A black substance starts to come out of the cube, driving the miner back to his small hut. As the mysterious black substance reaches the hut, it breaches the air locks and proceeds to consume the farmer.
