(1936) Occult / Detective / Action

From 'Weird Tales' August-September 1936.

Plot bullets

A man's wife is kidnapped.
Strange writings are found concerning a door to the beyond.
Reference is made to 'The Brotherhood of the Door'.

Care needs to be taken. The brotherhood is not a common criminal gang.

This is a good story, but with a somewhat weak plot, I thought. With the science of the 1930's it takes a particularly good writer to excite an audience of the 2010's.
