The Spectral Pistol

The Spectral Pistol (1941)

Carl Jacobi

Neither this nor its Weird Tales title, “The Phantom Pistol,” accurately describe this story, which involves an antique, but very real, pistol and the rare old book that identifies it as a werewolf killer. Wildly unbelievable, thanks to Jacobi’s penchant, on spectacular display here, for convenience and illogicality, but entertaining nevertheless.
