The day at the thrift store when he purchased the jackal-headed statue that could summon the Egyptian god Anubis on command, he assumed the valuable artifact had accidentally been discarded with the picked-over remains of some elaborate estate. But as he prepared to return to the Salvation Army for the fourth time that week, he knew the statue had been donated on purpose.
