The Case of Charles Dexter Ward
Young Charles Dexter Ward is fascinated by the history of Joseph Curwen, his wizard ancestor of the 17th-century. Curwen was notorious for haunting graveyards, practicing alchemy, and never aging! Ward can't help his fixation: he himself looks just like Curwen. In an attempt to duplicate his ancestor's cabbalistic feats, he resurrects the fearsome Curwen - and then the true horror begins!
