4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By MOTU Review on April 10, 2008
Format: Hardcover
Stories My Mother Never Told Me is another in the series of short story collections Dell released in the sixties and seventies. Again, Alfred Hitchcock was not involved. This collection is primarily comprised of stories with either "shock" endings or fantastical elements.

There are thirteen stories here, by quite an impressive list of authors: F. Scott Fitzgerald, Shirley Jackson, Grace Amundson, Robert Arthur, Andrew Benedict, John Collier, Gerald Kersh, George Hitchcock, George Mandel, Richard Matheson, Jane Rice, Don Stanford, and Richard Wormser.

Unfortunately, not many of these stories are very spectacular. Several stories are interesting but lack punch at the end. Collier's "Witch's Money" I didn't see the point of at all. There are too many cannibal stories (you'd think one per volume would be sufficient). And there's an inferior take on Connell's classic, "The Most Dangerous Game".

On the whole, there's enough to keep fans of this type of thing entertained, but nothing particularly amazing.

RECOMMENDED

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By D. Blankenship HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on October 18, 2006
Format: Hardcover
This is a collection of stories, strange stories, scary stories and odd stories by quite a number of authors. Ray Bradbury, Gerald Kersh, Dorothy Sayers, Raymond E. Banks, Carter Dickson, Hal Dresner and Jack Ritchie are but a few of the authors represented here. Most of the stories are quite good, some almost great. I did not find one that did not appeal to me. This is the sort of book I like to have handy to read when I have a few quiet moments and late at night. Can recommend this one highly.
