Fantasy short story. The publisher is an extremely interesting personality: Maurice Doreal was the name adopted by Claude Doggins as head of the Brotherhood of the White Temple, an occult fraternity headquartered in Sedalia, Colorado. He was a bookseller, specializing in old fantasy and the occult, a specialist dealer in a time when there were very few. He claimed that he had spent eight years in Tibet, and he also claimed to have visited the occult center in the middle of Mt. Shasta in northern California. Doreal founded the Brotherhood of the White Temple in 1930, and spent much of his life writing the brotherhood lessons and a series of pamphlets, called the Little Temple Library, on a wide variety of occult-related topics from Atlantis to UFOs. He claimed to have gained his knowledge from his contact with the Great White Lodge of Masters, those who have passed beyond their earthly experience and now seek to guide humanity in its evolution. Doreal built a temple for the brotherhood in Sedalia in 1946, in a valley enclosed by 1,500-foot mountain walls.
