Alfred Hitchcock Presents: Fear and Trembling

Alfred Hitchcock Presents: Fear and Trembling - Henry S. Whitehead,  Hugh Walpole,  H.G. Wells,  Lord Dunsany,  William Irish,  John Collier,  M.R. James,  Ambrose Bierce,  Elizabeth Bowen,  Ray Bradbury,  John Metcalfe,  H.R. Wakefield,  John Buchan,  Alfred Hitchcock an anthology that collects stories from some fantastic writers, it would make a wonderful introduction to genre fiction. the ambrose bierce story will make you wish for more of his words, and features stories by other favourites like m.r. james and william irish (aka cornell woolrich). i would say that "telling" by elizabeth bowen is the creepiest story in the collection, and that it was a mistake to lead off with cassius (which has a great concept, and was probably better served by the x-files episode called humbug (yeah, the one that featured jim rose and the enigma and saw scully eat a bug. :)
