Osamu Watanabe (渡辺 長武, Watanabe Osamu?, born on October 21, 1940) is a retired Japanese freestyle wrestler. In 1962, he debuted internationally and retired shortly after the 1964 Olympics. During his brief career Watanabe won all his few hundred bouts[2] without losing a single point. This achievement remains unmatched in any type of competitive wrestling, as reflected in the Guinness World Records.[1][3][4]
In the early 2000s Watanabe resumed competing internationally in the masters category.[5]

Wamphyri are a form of vampire described by Brian Lumley in his Necroscope series.
Lumley has reinterpreted the traditional vampire legend. In his stories, a vampire is a leech-like parasite from an alien world which forms a symbiotic relationship with a host creature, usually a human or sometimes a canine such as a wolf or fox (werewolf). While the symbiosis puts great demands on the host (such as requiring to feed on blood to survive), the benefits include increased strength, speed, and resilience, a seemingly infinite lifespan that stretches into millennia, magnified senses, base emotional stimulation, access to latent psychic power such as ESP or telepathy, metamorphic flesh allowing flight or disguise, and certain narcotic effects.
The vampires in the story have great control over people who are weak-minded, and could easily dominate the Earth if allowed to achieve their full potential. They also have the ability to produce lesser breeds of vampires for different purposes.

Life cycle[edit]
The vampiric leech begins its original life cycle as a fungus similar to a mushroom, formed from the decomposed flesh and fats of a deceased vampire. When a suitable host is detected (the ‘mushrooms’ seem to have some form of awareness), the caps burst open, releasing a cloud of spores which are inhaled (or otherwise absorbed) by the victim. The transformation is slow, as the spores must first adapt the body to suit the growth of a leech.

Jack Wodhams (born 3 September 1931 in Dagenham, London, England, United Kingdom) is a science fiction writer who has lived in Australia since 1955.[1]
He was first published in Analog Science Fiction and Fact in 1967 with the story There Is a Crooked Man. He is largely known for the kind of “problem oriented” stories that Analog itself is known for. These stories have been called “generally clever and often ingenious”[2] and good on military matters,[3] but occasionally criticized as facetious. From 1970 to 1982 he was nominated for the Ditmar Award several times.
