The Lost God – short story by John Russell – with illustrations

On the occasion of the recent biographical article on John Russell, i thought it would be good to share his most famous story as it originally appeared in a magazine . The story was published in the August 18, 1927 issue of Collier’s magazine; it was illustrated by W. H. D. Koerner.
