Alfred Hitchcock Presents Stories Not for the Nervous
Alfred Hitchcock Presents Stories Not for the Nervous Author:Alfed Hitchcock, editor A collection of short stories and novelettes. — A WORD FROM OUR SPONSOR: The title of this volume is "Stories Not for the Nervous." There are those who will argue that this title could apply to any of the various tomes of terror, sagas of suspense, or groupings of grue which I have, from time to time, gathered together for the delectation of my r... more »eaders. And indeed the point is well taken.
For I am not a man to cater to the nervous. If you are in the habit of chewing your fingernails, jumping from you chair when a door slams, or swooning when someone playfully shouts "Boo!" in your ear, I have only two words of advice -- pass on.
If, however, you have nerves which are under good control, nerves which are pleasantly tickled by a touch of terror or agreeably stimulated by a soupcon of suspense, then I invite you to join me.
Take a seat, any seat, and start wherever you wish. Break for an intermission whenever you choose and return when you are ready. Informality rules in your enjoyment of this smorgasbord of stories. There is, I think, something for every taste.
