On page iii, excerpt from "The Hour of the Dragon"
WEIRD TALES, December 1935

From a carven green jade box he took a handful of shimmering black dust, and placed it in a brazier which stood on a golden tripod at his elbow.

In Stygia, that ancient and evil kingdom that lay far to the south, he had seen such black dust before. It was the pollen of the black lotus, which creates death-like sleep and monstrous dream; and he knew that only the grisly wizards of the Black Ring, which is the nadir of evil, voluntarily seek the nightmares of the black lotus, to revive their necromantic powers.

Edited by Elizabeth A. Saunders
