POST STORIES, 1957 by Ben- Ed. Hibbs


Email this review


The annual get-together maintains the slick professionalism, variety and general readability of earlier collections and with the exception of perhaps William Faulkner's Snopes, Frank O'Connor and Conrad Richter's obdurate old man- hanging on to life and the memory of a woman, the emphasis is on entertainment. To drop a few names- Vina Delmar's spiteful, intimate revelation; Geoffrey Household's genial adventure to which an old Greek drinking bowl leads; Ray Bradbury's gentle Good-By Grandma; Gerald Kersh' more macabre- Murderer's Eye; and along with some unashamed schmalz (Saroyan, Ralph Knight), a touch of science fiction, there's a good deal of adventure. For a pretested, predictable market, capable and reliable.
