THOMAS CARNACKI (1913-1995) by William Hope Hodgson

"... most people never quite know how much or how little they believe of matters ab-human or ab-normal, and generally they never have an opportunity to learn ... " -- Carnacki

In a house at No. 472, Cheyne Walk lives the remarkable Carnacki. Inventor of the Electric Pentacle, investigator of the Black Veil case, or the Grey Dog Business or the Incident of the Three Straw Platters, reader of the Sigsand Manuscript and performer of the hideous Saaamaaaa Ritual, Carnacki is well prepared to face real monsters. But as often as not, the villains prove natural rather than supernatural. Carnacki was the first ghostbreaker to allow either possibilty. After him, things were never the same...
