“You are looking at my latest invention—the hysteria prognosticator.”
Professor Feversham needs a new test subject to try his experimental hysteria prognosticator on, but his strict requirements rule out any of the young women currently undergoing treatment at the Academy. Fortune offers him Miss Eleanor Stanley, a young woman afflicted with neurasthenia and hysteria who has travelled the continent with her father in search of cures for her ailments. Despite the humiliation of her initial examination Eleanor is overcome with gratitude that the world-famous Professor Feversham has agreed to take her as a patient—until she is strapped down to a table and she realizes just what all those probes and clamps are for. Will Eleanor submit to being the Professor’s lab subject and everything that entails?
