  • The eminent scientist Professor Guildea eschews physical and emotional intimacy. But, after beginning a friendship with a priest, his life is disrupted by an apparently supernatural visitor to his house...who won't leave him alone.

    This is the first part of a novella in two parts.

    This  original recording is an audio presentation by Jasper L'Estrange for  EnCrypted: The Classic Horror Podcast. "How Love Came To Professor  Guildea" by Robert Hichens was first published in 1897.
