Long's slim novel, first serialized in Weird Tales in January and February/March 1931, is a novel in the "Cthulhu Mythos" vein. The story concerns a hideous stone idol brought from China, and an age-old entity which uses that idol as a material tenement to bend humanity to its evil will. Long based this story on a dream which he thought about for many years before sharing. Fine. Item #519
