THE GHOSTBREAKERS

Jules de Grandin/Dr. Trowbridge (1925-151) by Seabury Quinn

"One evening in 1925 I was at that state that every writer knows and dreads; a story was due my publisher, and there didn't seem to be a plot in the world.  Accordingly, with nothing particular in mind, I picked up my pen and -- literally making it up as I went along -- wrote the first story which appears in this book."  -- Seabury Quinn

Jules deGrandin is the master of the outrageous detective genre. Everything about him is over-the-top from his Hercule Poirot moustache to his outbursts of stilted French. DeGrandin and his Watson-like companion, Dr. Trowbridge, live in Harrisonville, NJ, a town haunted by monsters, mad scientists and all manner of weird phenomena. As with Carnacki, not all of deGrandin's adversaries were supernatural. The deGrandin stories appeared only in Weird Tales, where they were the most popular of all characters, beating even Conan the Cimmerian and Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos.

 

“When you have seen such things as I have seen, Monsieur — parbleu, when you have seen one half as much! — you will learn to believe many things that fools declare impossible..." -- The Dead Hand
