Livingstone, Dr. James. Dr. James Livingstone was created by “L. Adams Beck,” the pseudonym of Elizabeth Moresby, and appeared in ten stories which were collected in The Openers of the Gate (1930).

Dr. James Livingstone is a specialist in nervous disorders, but his investigations bring him into Occult Detective territory. Dr. Livingstone's cases involve things like dogs returning as ghosts to help their former owners, dead children returning as ghosts to help their parents, generational curses, drug-induced astral forced suicides, ferocious reincarnated Hindu vegetarians, white men being the reincarnation of Thug leaders, ghosts trapped in their own Purgatories, and so on.
