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. Wilson "Willy" Newbury, for whom the realm of the super-natural seems to have a strange affinity.

- A horse discloses its violent - non-equine - past.
- A manufacturer reveals a particularly unacceptable form of non-union labour.
- Formaldehyde is shown to be a better preservative than even its inventor would have hoped.
- A game of chances takes on serious overtones, and all for a most unlikely prize.
