'Hugh Gordon is a haunted scientist, which is a way of becoming a mad one. Although his laboratory is full of 'glass bells much larger than a man, dozens of them connected by copper wires and containing delicate Faraday cages of my own design.' He is as much as mystic as he is an empirical scientist, inspired by the notion of disembodied spirits traveling to distant worlds. It is such a manifestation that begins to haunt his home and laboratory, frightening his wife and servants and causing destruction of his notes and apparatus.'
