" But THE GREAT GOD PAN is not alone in tackling this dark beyond the veil. In THE NOVEL OF THE WHITE POWDER an unforeseen pharmaceutical reaction lets out a demon of the id or soul....seldom has any writer of horror topped the sense of claustrophobic oppression and dread in this tale." " ' What are you going to do to liquidate us?' one of the boys bluntly asks Bernard Westcott, who represents the interests of the military. When Westcott asks why the subject can't be approached in a civilized manner, he is told, ' This is not a civilized matter ; it is a very primitive matter. If we exist, we shall dominate you---that is inevitable. Will you agree to be superceded, and start on the way to extinction without a struggle? Can ANY state, however tolerant, afford to harbor an increasingly powerful minority which it has no power to control? Obviously, the answer is no.' " "
