Jules, Herbert. Herbert Jules was created by A. Rowley Hilliard (Judge Manfred) and appeared in “The Avenging Ray” (Wonder Stories Quarterly, Spring 1931) and “The Island of the Giants” (Wonder Stories, Aug. 1931).

Herbert Jules is a physician in New York City. While experimenting with controlled mutations he succeeds in breeding weasels until they grow to the size of St. Bernards. Unfortunately, a number of them escape, and their mutations have increased their breeding frequency. Civilization itself is threatened by them until the U.S. Army brings out a death ray, which destroys the weasels. In the sequel Jules’ son investigates gigantic super-intelligent humans on a remote island.
