So speaks a character in Two Strange Tales, a pair of novellas in which Westerners are caught up in the uncanny realm of Eastern religion and magic. In "Nights at Serampore," three European scholars, traveling deep in the forests of Bengal, are inexplicably cast into another time and space where they witness the violent murder of a young Hindu wife. In "The Secret of Dr. Honigberger," a respectable Rumanian physician vanishes without a trace after experimenting with yogic techniques in his quest for the legendary invisible world called Shambhala.

Roumanian Eliade writes here like an Englishman of the old India hand variety looking into the strange and spiritual in India around the 30s or so. Eliade of course was a scholar and popularizer (and actually was an old India hand type) of spirituality and religion, especially Yoga. Ironically the stories deal with just the kind of magic tricks and powers that he claims such spirituality is not about. But I like the genre and he does it well.
