The Damned

http://www.forteantimes.com/articles/150_webb.shtml

James Webb was a sceptical investigator of the occult, writing several books on
the subject during the 1970s.  Webb began to suffer from terrifying delusions
and paranoia, involving Freemasons and a warped perception of time.  Webb
finally found peace at the end of a shotgun in May, 1980.  Did Webb suffer from
paranoid schizophrenia, aggravated by a unfulfilling marriage, or did he stumble
upon an occult truth that shattered his sanity?

village nearby.  The Buryat are a superstitious people, shamanism is still

trying to appease the angry gods of Olkhon.
