Carnacki brought an empirical attitude to his investigations, as well as several high-tech (for 1913) gadgets, ranging from photography to an protective device of his own invention called the electric pentacle. Unlike many occult detectives, his cases included a mix of hoaxes and genuine hauntings, meaning there's always some suspense in the stories as to what's ''really'' going on.

* ThatPoorCat: In "Gateway of the Monster", Carnacki's lowest-tech piece of equipment is a cat in a basket, which he places experimentally outside his magical protections.
-->"I heard the basket, in which the cat lay, creak... I knew that I was going to learn definitely whether whatever was abroad was dangerous to Life. From the cat there rose suddenly a hideous caterwaul, that ceased abruptly"
** In "The House Among the Laurels", he stakes out two dogs (this time with safeguards):
--->"And then, abruptly, from the boarhound over in the far corner, there came a terrible yelling howl of agony, followed instantly by a sickening, breaking noise, and an immediate silence."
