In this weeks episode I will be discussing The Pale Man by Julius Long. It first appeared in the September 1934 issue of Weird Tales.
I would say the story takes place in the early 1930’s. It features a man who is a university assistant staying at a country hotel during the summer months. He’s the narrator of the story and is apparently ill enough that his superiors at the university made him take this vacation. During his stay at the hotel he comes across an unusual individual he dubs The Pale Man.
