M expert and believer to investigate a woman purported to have great powers as a medium While in her isolated small town during the middle f to have great powers as a medium While in her isolated small town during the middle The Return of the Dancing Master of seance in fact a murder takes place andur stage magician is arrested then has to flee a rather hasty lynch mob before stumbling across the previously mentioned Judge who puts the details together and concludes that perhaps a werewolf is involved This story was a bit longer than I usually like but I ll give it to Wellman for filling it with well paced incident the jail breakoutlynch mob scene is some good suspense writing and brought to mind the escaping the hotel bit The Mother of All Meltdowns of Lovecraft s Shadow Over Innsmouth from 2 years earlier and an interesting angle Essentially this come from an interesting time when SpiritualismTheosophy was still presenting itself as some kindf science as long as The Cybernetic Brain: Sketches of Another Future one was a little forgiving and dragged in a lotf psychological speculation and so Dark Wind once again we have a semi rational approach to lycanthropy ectoplasmic projection you see and as usual for a werewolf story it turns into a whodunnit There are shoututs to Algernon Blackwood and surprisingly enough PG Wodehouse as well a nice little bit where Doctor Who: The War Doctor: Infernal Devices our male and female leads start to wonder if maybe the coincidentally well placed Judge is himself the werewolf he sure does seem to know a lot about them and all in all is a nice examplef a pulp action Banana: A Global History occult thriller I d sure like to know what that very specific reference to Long Island The Literary Digest and 1936 was all aboutCoven A Civil War vet in Arkansas runs afoulf a satanic cult in this tale a fun two fisted action romp De twijfel van Salaì of a novella with backwoodsccultism and folklore an actual demon and some last minute philosophizing about ther dimensions Also features an Appearance By Union Soldier Turned by Union Soldier turned Sgt Jaeger with his book f Pennsylvania Dutch Pow Wow magic Again solid example Happenstance 2 of pulp era actionhorrorFearful Rock Another Civil War era novella with Sgt Jaeger this features a Union troop sent to engage with uantrill s raiders discovering an evil house and an innocent girlf the Mandifer family who has been sworn to betroth some evil thing But after the battle with the raiders the war and time moves Porter on and finally Kane Lanark returns to the area in searchf the daughter Enid who now seems again entrapped by the resurrected evil f her adopted father and brother This was pretty good I generally wouldn t have enjoyed the length but its paced well enough and packed with enough events as to remain interesting Jaeger is a little interesting here as *WELL FOR EXAMPLE HE NOW HAS ACCESS TO A * for example he now has access to a tome by Albertus Magnus but is conflicted ver its satanic sections and charms There s unkillable zombie raiders as well as a barely seen unspeakable evil sadly defeated Argentina Indigena - Historia Argentina 1 off screen and daddy Persil and son Larue are memorable creations threatening evil and in the finale resurrected as skinless creatures just like Frank in HELLRAISER I also liked thepening where Jager reacts with revulsion to a satanic image found in a basement and a guard is killed remotely by magic Good stuff.
