I found this book at a book market in Amsterdam and I was excited to get this edition from 1957 The stories started out amusingly morbid and delightfully wicked as I had hoped But then the year it was written in became obvious with a few stories that were obviously racist in their depictions and ending conclusions calling black islanders savages and heathens is just one exampleI could excuse this because at the time this is how some people thought but the last few stories in this book were so twisted and disturbing that I couldn t sleep afterwards I d recommend skipping the last threeespecially the one about Halloween That one was straight up appallingI give this book 4 stars because I really enjoyed it and it was an interesting look into the pastbut it s not a book that everyone can stomach

I ve been reading this in bite sized chunks over the last week or two Favorite stories so far Sredni Vashtar Saki Casting the Runes MR James and How Love Came to Professor Guildea Robt S Hichens This is an interesting collection that combines well known and freuently anthologized classics like the ones I ve just mentioned with obscure works by lesser known authors Even the non classics are uite interesting I m about half way through and there hasn t been a dull story in the lot Coincidentally I recently discovered that Philip MacDonald whose story in this collection is Love Lies Bleeding wrote a small corpus of science fiction stories under the name WJ Stuart Among those is a novelization of the famous science fiction film Forbidden PlanetThe Hitchcock short story collections are legion and apparently Hitchcock himself had little or nothing to do with them When I was in my mid teens in the 1970 s I bought uite a few of the Dell paperbacks with covers that featured clever and fanciful paintings of Hitch in various macabre situations How I wish I had hung on to those Those covers were so delightfulI have begun to re acuire some of the old paperbacks I found a website that provides information about them Sometimes a cover scan is included and often a table of contents is provided If you have any interest here s a linkHitchcock WikiOkay finished Not sure I d recommend all 378 pages to everyone I was hoping I d find some hidden gems in here but the second half of the book didn t have too much going for it Certainly most of the stories are well crafted entertainments often with twist or ironic endings I d encountered The Most Dangerous Game and The Waxwork long ago in one of Hitchcock s juvenile anthologies I believe it was called Spellbinders in Suspense and the illustrations were uite haunting If you haven t seen the RKO picture of The Most Dangerous Game 1932 I recommend it
