Summary (IBList user synopsis):

Richard Dodd has been receiving strange letters from his friend Albert Young, who writes of horrible rituals, creatures whose visage grants insanity to those that behold them, and ancient legends of unspeakable horrors beyond space and time. Dodd does not believe these strange tales, but Young offers him a position as his secretary, and he accepts, desperate for money.

When he arrives, his friend is mysteriously gone, and the only one who knows anything is John Clothier, a pedantic, strange man who lives across the street. Upon their meeting, Clothier begs Young to leave the town forever, but most of all, avoid the church in High Street at all costs!
