The Smell - Francis Flagg

It started as a vile smell in the room with a reputation which allowed him to rent it inexpensively. The smell developed a feel, long and sinuous, cold and clammy, like the body of a serpent, and yet not unlike a woman. It seemed the room was haunted, ultimately proving that you only get what you pay for.

The Temple of Death - David H. Keller, M.D.
