The Peculiar Exploits of Brigadier Ffellowes

The Peculiar Exploits of Brigadier Ffellowes

Sterling E. Lanier

Science Fiction & Fantasy

Who is Brigadier Ffellowes? To quote one of his listeners at the club, "He seemed to have served in every branch of Her Majesty's forces at one time or another, including all knows forms of Intelligence." The Brigadier himself will admit only to an artillery commission, yet none of his stories has anything to do with artillery. They are however, about the unnatural, about strange gods forgotten by recent civilizations, about drums beating under the tropical moon, weird cries, and eldritch howls and rites that civilized men thought had died with the building of the pyramids. Ffellowes is a catalyst, a focal point of dark forces, a man to whom things happen. Wherever he goes, on vacation or on routine business, he enters a world most people never see, except in their darkest dreams. Monsters pursue him, humans lay traps for him, supernatural beasts seek his destruction while the kindly, urbane, bluff soldier threads his way through a labyrinth of hideous perils like a tightrope walker, his iron nerve and years of experience his only defense against the powers and beings that prowl the lost fringes of the world. Sometimes the menace is physical, but sometimes the soul itself is in danger. For Ffellowes has tackled powers beyond any physical law, powers whose aim is to obliterate the human spirit. Those to whom the retired soldier tells his stories often start by trying to scoff. But, as the tale continues, the room silences, save for the tense breathing of men who cannot believe what they are hearing, and who cannot stop listening either, until the soft voice stops. Then, slowly, the real, everyday world comes back into focus. Listen to Ffellowes and see how well you sleep afterward.
