Alonzo Typer. Occultist from Kingston, NY who vanished near the abandoned van der Heyl mansion on April 17, 1908. Typer went to private school as a youth and was later to attend Columbia and the University of Heidelburg, where he became the pupil of the noted anthropologist Victor Gibson. He traveled in the East a great deal, making it as far as Easter Island in 1899, visiting many sites with his now-vanished friend Victor Heauton. Even his colleagues considered Typer's research bizarre; many of his occult papers could only be privately published, and he resigned from the Society for Psychical Research in 1902. His disappearance has left authorities puzzled, though a diary found in the van der Heyl mansion in 1935 and the Reverend Edgar Dowling's psychic research have provided wildly unlikely accounts of his life thereafter. The Plastic Wax Factory, purveyors of intricate and fine molten effigies. All your gods, demons, monsters and creatures of the abyss to Leech Lords of the Cthulhu mythos, witches, warlocks, and lunatic residents of asylums the world over still murmuring their arcane incantations. All are represented here in glorious molten plastic wax, set alight and melted into puddles of primordial grotesquerie. Recommended for the mad and delirious and those fine folks from Leeds, Hull and Scarborough.
