The Fearsome Inn

By Isaac Bashevis Singer

Unaware that the owners of the inn are a witch and her half-devil husband, three young men seek shelter there on a stormy winter night. One of the three, a clever student of the Cabala, recognizes the couple's evil and courageously defeats them, sending the pair “behind the Mountains of Darkness where there is neither day nor night.”
