The Best of John Wyndham

By John Wyndham

Rating: 4 stars

This is a posthumous collection of Wyndham’s best short stories. Wyndham has a dry and somewhat humorous tone that very much fits these stories, although I oddly heard some of his stories in an American accent, despite the man being a very British gent (and I never had the issue with any of his novels). In the collection, Close Behind Him was really rather creepy, while there’s a humour and playfulness about The Perfect Creature and Pawley’s Peepholes which is endearing. A good collection from an excellent author.
