This is a macabre story with a high intensity suspense. Clayton is telling his friends a story, as they sit fireside and drink whiskies at the Mermaid Club. The story is when Clayton caught a ghost in a passage in an old shadowy house.

“Caught a ghost, did you?” said Sanderson. “Where is it?”

Clayton describes the ghost as scrubby with bad ears; and then he invites the ghost into his bedroom. A lively and amazing conversation takes place between Clayton and this ghost. Clayton takes pity on the sorry thing and tries to assist the ghost in returning to the ‘world of shades.’

Incantations, passes, gestures and the power of the world beyond make this a well-plotted and entertaining story. What begins as an amusing ghost tale becomes classic HG Wells adventure–clever, colorful, and chilling.

Did you know that H.G Wells’ first published book was a biology textbook in 1893? He thought of lasers in The War of the Worlds years before Einstein’s quantum theory would even make lasers feasible. Wells came up with automated doors in his 1899 novel When the Sleeper Wakes.

  1. An old favorite, the H.G. Wells story. Esoteric Freemasonry still had an occult reputation in those days.
