Not so much frightening as thought provoking

The title brings forth images of horror stories being told by candlelight. So considering that I'm not a big fan of 'scary stories', when I approached this book it was with a great deal of trepidation. However, I soon found that the stories inside were of the typical true Hitchcock fashion. More along the lines of 'North by Northwest' or 'Rebecca' than 'The Birds', for instance. If you are a fan of Hitchcock's movies, you will definitely enjoy the stories in this volume. I found that I had only read one of the stories, and was pleasantly surprised to find stories by such noted authors as Isaac Asimov and Roald Dahl. Definitely a good read, and because they are short stories, you can read each one at your leisure.

Fascinating, Intriguing Stories for Mystery Lovers

I have read many of Alfred Hitchcock's series of horror/mystery books and this is one of the best. Almost all of the stories are worth reading. The most particularly notable ones are: Tomorrow and Tomorrow (Adobe James)(an absolutely horrendous story about revenge), A Good Head for Murder (Charles Runyon), Invisible Cat (Betty Ren Wright), and The Distributor (Richard Matheson). I think that A Good Head for Murder as well as Invisible Cat are absolutely two of the best suspense short stories that I have ever read. A great book for mystery/horror lovers.
