Wolf of the Steppes

A series of letters detailing horrifying encounters with a werewolf

Letter from Doctor Thomas Connors to Amdi Rubdah, the adept, Teheran, Persia.

TO my dear Master, greetings: Not in vain have I learned from you somewhat of the mysteries enveloping the human soul in its earth life. In my performance for the first time of the ancient incantations you taught me under the Persian stars, I have gained a vivid knowledge of the occult powers resident in the flesh-caged spirit of man and realize with rejoicing the impotence of Evil in the everlasting conflict with Truth, especially when that Truth is armed with the knowledge that is power.
