Summary (From the publisher):

Being the adventures of W. Wilson Newbury, mild-mannered - and mildly ensorcelled - gentleman banker. L. Sprague De Camp, winner of the Gandolf Award as a Grand Master of Fantasy, reveals within these pages the curious story of his friendship with W. Willson "Willy" Newbury, for whom the realm of the supernatural seems to have a strange affinity....A horse discloses its violent - non-equine - past. A manufacturer reveals a particularly unacceptable form of non-union labor. Formaldehyde is shown to be a better preservative than even its inventor would have hoped. A game of chance takes on serious overtones, and all for a most unlikely prize...
