    One thought on “Alfred Hitchcock's Ghostly Gallery”

    1. I don t want to appear disloyal to television, but I think reading will be good for you After all, your television tube may burn out some day Further, you need practice for reading the subtitles in those foreign movies But don t be discouraged You ll get used to reading Turning all the pages may be difficult, but the exercise will do you good Alfred Hitchcock, from his introductionHere is another book that I begged and pestered my mother to buy me and then waited over forty years to read.It was [...]

    2. Unlike the two Hitchcock anthologies I reviewed earlier, this one was tailored for younger readers, so has a number of tales that are whimsical and humorous rather than grim and scary The latter type are certainly represented, though the two classic stories that appear here are Crawford s The Upper Berth and A M Burrage s The Waxwork Many of the ones in the former group are absolutely delightful there isn t a story in the book that isn t worth a read All but a few are of the supernatural type on [...]

    3. I first discovered this volume in my elementary school library, and later acquired my own copy, but I don t think that I had actually read any of it until now The cover terrified me as a child, kept me awake at night much like the boy on the cover, imagining faces watching me from every corner of my bedroom you have to see the back cover as well for the full effect It s stuck with me in all these years and when I found it again in a public library, I decided to finally fill in the gap.Alfred Hit [...]

    4. Absolutely changed my childhood and was instrumental in turning me on to ghost stories As an adult I would go back and be astonished to discover I d been reading heavy hitters like Robert Bloch, A.M Burrage, and Shirley Jackson Classic ghost stories that should grab adult as well as younger readers Bonus Hitch s or likely ghost writer publicist s singular intro Not bad for an antho that was essentially a cash grab marketing maneuver

    5. I used to read this book all the time while I was camping in Nova Scotia when I was thirteen It s a short but excellent little collection of hauntingly vivid and chilling stories that are each unique in their own way.

    6. This book is great for younger readers.There s a variety of paranormal experiences waiting to be read in these pages.Vivid narration and engaging story telling keeps the readers stuck in the worlds created by the authors Each story is different from the other and has something new to offer to its readers.My favourite story in the book is Miss Emmeline Takes Off.

    7. I read this book when I was in elementary school most significantly I remember The Upper Berth by Francis Marion Crawford scaring the bejaysus out of me I don t think I slept for a week.I just took a break from writing this to buy a copy online for nostalgia s sake Can t wait to revisit my childhood

    8. This is really just a book version of Rod Serling s Night Gallery It contains quite a few stories only some of them actually about ghosts and perhaps half of them are decent The other half are either lame or boring or simply too childish Even the good stories aren t the slightest bit scary It evokes in you than anything, that annoying feeling you get when your grandfather tells you a story about monsters in the closet and you think to yourself, Well, I would be frightened if I was still a fucki [...]

    9. I remember reading this book with my dad when I was a little girl I would stare at the illustrations for hours.is was the man that got me interested in reading to the point that I m a full blown book fiend now Eventually this book was lost how, I ll never know but I will always remember this as my graduation book from puppy love with childhood, age appropriate literature, to something a bit Ma Ture Thank you Alfred H.

    10. I was lucky enough in my youth to own three of Alfred Hitchcock s creepy tales all three of the books were excellent and had frightening illustrations as well This volume contains the great stories The Upper Berth by F Marion Crawford, In a Dim Room by Lord Dunsany what an ending and The Waxwork by A.M Burrage.

    11. Pulpy, quick reading ghost stories I found this collection at a used bookstore recently Includes much anathologized In a Dim Room as well as some other gems like The Upper Berth It s geared for what we would call tweens nowadays But good enough to pass the time for adults, too.

    12. A compilation of ghost and horror stories The tales include Miss Emmeline Takes Off by Walter Brooks, The Valley of the Beasts by Algernon Blackwood, The Haunted Trailer by Robert Arthur, The Upper Berth by F Marion Crawford, The Wonderful Day by Robert Arthur, The Truth About Pyecraft by H G Wells, Housing Problem by Henry Kuttner, In a Dim Room by Lord Dunsany, Obstinate Uncle Otis by Robert Arthur, The Waxwork by A M Burrage, and The Isle of Voices by Robert Louis Stevenson.As many of you kno [...]

    13. Especially enjoyed the first and last story in this The Waxwork may have been a bit predictable, but itcertainly made up for it in creepiness.

    14. I first discovered the Alfred Hitchcock anthologies when I was in about fourth grade Recently I found _Ghostly Galleries_ and _Haunted Houseful_ in a bookstore, and snapped them up for my kids to read when they get older Of course, I had to read them again for the sake of nostalgia, and I found that I still enjoyed the stories as much as when I was 10 The collections feature some of the greatest names in fiction writing _Ghostly Galleries_ has stories by H.G Wells The Truth About Pycraft , Rober [...]

    15. In love with the stories presented, as well as the order of them Each story that is featured is compelling, and though a few have a bit of a rough start, once you begin to read them, you are nearly unable to put it down The stories individual length make the collection excellent for work breaks or short bedtime stories In all the features, the story line is wonderfully written and executed Each character is perfectly dynamic, and none of them seem to be too perfect.In particular, the story Housi [...]

    16. okay, so the deal with all the alfred hitchcock books is that i m trying to find a short story i read when i was really young that really creeped me out and i thought it was in spellbinders in suspense , so i re bought it recently, but it was not in there so in a fit of frustration i bought all the AH short story collections i could find in order to track down the story but it was not to be found clearly that story has gone the way of the children s book about the bear amazing book that i read w [...]

    17. Cleaning off the shelves Part 1A new, continuing series dedicated to finally reading those books that I have had forever.I have too many books I know I have too many books when I pull out a book like this, that I have had for 30 years, but never read It s a children s book of ghost stories, and as fun as they were, I m no longer a child Really should have read this one 30 years ago.The stories are decent and engaging, but I could see the outcome of each about a mile away Fun, but lacking any sur [...]

    18. I ve read and rather enjoyed two of the other books in this series of collections for younger readers Alfred Hitchcock s Sinister Spies and Alfred Hitchcock s Spellbinders in Suspense , but Ghostly Gallery was mostly a disappointment The best stories here are the well known classics The Upper Berth by Francis Marion Crawford and The Waxwork by A.M Burrage The Lord Dunsany story is quite short and mildly amusing but hardly qualifies as a chiller, and the others unfortunately were not really worth [...]

    19. Great way to spend time with my daughter I ve had this since I was a wee lad and always thought it was a terrific anthology for younger readers My daughter is a real glutton for horror tales , from ghostly haunts to the cosmic terrors of HPL and Arthur Machen The tales here lean primarily to the humorous side of horror, although I ve always considered F Marion Crawford s The Upper Berth a nasty piece of work in any anthology A great book for younger readers interested in horror or just a good sc [...]

    20. I positively loved this collection of haunting ghost stories compiled by the one and only Alfred Hitchcock Some stories were better than others, but all were written superbly Some of my favorites included The Haunted Trailer by Robert Arthur, The Truth About Pyecraft by H.G Wells, and my favorite The Waxwork by A.M Burrage What I especially like is how the book introduces students to classic authors from the literary cannon Each story can be read in one sitting or class period There are creepy d [...]

    21. I picked this book up specifically looking for F Marion Crawford s The Upper Berth said to be one of the spookiest short stories of all time It certainly was spooky I wouldn t say of all time but definitely one of my personal favorites.The rest of the book was written equally well Since this is a children s book many of the stories are rather imaginative and child friendly filled with witches and ghosts and wild beasts I believe this is still a great piece of writing that even adults will love.V [...]

    22. After re reading this anthology, I m glad to say that it lived up to my high hopes quite well Of course, some of the stories were better than others, but many of them were very done very well The three stories by Robert Arthur stand out for their great creativity, and even though most of the stories didn t really involve ghosts, many were still entertaining supernatural tales These were my personal favorites Miss Emmeline Takes Off The Upper Berth The Wonderful Day Housing Problem In a Dim Room [...]

    23. As a child, I remember the front picture of this book especially It kind of captures the you re in bed in the middle of the night and SOMETHING scares you feeling Enjoyed re reading this, and remembering the stories that scared me, and the ones that made me laugh because of the strange twist at the end

    24. Here s a book I was raised on.Some of the stories in this little book are scary for kids, which is precisely why I gobbled them up as a child This was a formative book for me, and I have rewritten its pages in many forms over the years.I have not gone back to read it in 35 years, so you will need to decide whether or not to forgive me if the stories are dated.

    25. A classic collection by classic authors part of the delightful Random House series of hardbacks from the 1960s.
