Indexer Notes

Script previously credited to Manly Wade Wellman. I'm not seeing anything that links this to Wellman's style. No ellipses or sentence fragments or any of his favorite words. Expressions like MMMRRFFF and GWFF GAW MOT are not associated with any of the standard authors expected in this era of the Spirit.
