This story reminded me so much of the first Evil Dead movie I couldn’t wait to put some images to it. A little meta being it mentions the very pulp pub it was found in. Besides that little tongue-in-check happening, this tale is dedicated to Lovecraft’s memory and Wellman mentions a few of the other heavy-hitting Eldritch writers of the 30s.
