Alfred Hitchcock Presents: 16 Skeletons From My Closet (1963)


Silver Age
Category: Spooky Cover
Date Finished: August 22, 2015

This was a tough category to find something to fulfill it. What is considered “spooky” in a title. Skeletons should count, though. I put off reading short story collections, but these always turn out to be fun. This one contains some good authors, such as Frank Kane (a Peter Chambers) and Craig Rice (a John J. Malone). Here’s the full list:

  • Ghost Story by Henry Kane
  • Where is Thy Sting? by James Holding
  • Butler Who Didn’t Do It by Craig Rice
  • Christmas Gift by Robert Turner
  • Man at the Table by C.B. Gilford
  • Death of Another Salesman by Donald Honig
  • Man with a Hobby by Robert Bloch
  • …Said Jack the Ripper by Robert Arthur
  • Gun with a Heart by William Logan
  • Assassination by Dion Henderson
  • Little Sororicide by Richard Deming
  • Man Who Got Away with It by Lawrence Treat
  • Secret Recipe by Charles Mergendahl
  • Daddy-O by David Alexander
  • Crime Machine by Jack Ritchie
  • Homicide and Gentlemen by Fletcher Flora

Some twists, some turns, some murderers who get away with it all, a Cleveland convention story set in Cleveland just before I was to go there for a convention (the Robert Bloch story). Some good mid-century modern murder here.
