Synopsis for "The Haunting Wind!"

This story is reprinted from The Phantom Stranger #2.

Dan Russell and Jim Nelson are in Tibet, exploring a mountain with the help of a local guide. They come upon a doorway leading into the mountain and discover a huge treasure trove. The guide warns them not to take anything, as the wind god will become angry. But Dan disregards the warning and takes a ring. As the explorers make their descent, a fierce gust of wind blows Jim off the mountain, and he falls to his death.

Dan heads home to the United States on a steamer. In the middle of the ocean, a hurricane blows him overboard. He spends a day drifting on a piece of floating debris, but he's eventually saved by a passing freighter. Next, Dan boards a plane and experiences horrible turbulence.

When he's finally back in the States, the wind severely whips a bridge that he's crossing. He makes it across just before the bridge collapses. Finally, Dan seeks safety in a nearby building. However, it turns out to be a wind tunnel, and Dan is killed by the spinning fans.

Somehow, the ring comes off Dan's finger and ends up back in the treasure trove in Tibet.
