This is a great little tale of weird horror, worthy of comparison to Algernon Blackwood or Arthur Machen, but written by neither. Instead, it was penned by His Excellency the Right Honourable Lord Tweedsmuir, the 15th Governor General of Canada and "the father of the modern spy thriller," John Buchan. His most famous work was The Thirty-Nine Steps.
