    When I was a young boy I read a story by Burrage called The Waxwork which I found in an Alfred Hitchcock anthology for kids It terrified me and the terror was compounded by a blood curdling illustration by Fred Banbury The Waxwork is about a journalist who takes on a challenge to spend the night in a wax museum that contains an effigy of a notorious murderer whose implement of choice was a barber's razor I have never sought out a collection exclusively by Burrage before now but I got a pretty good deal on this one I have read the first few stories including the title story and I am uite impressed by the high uality of the writing Little wonder that Burrage was one of the most commercially successful short story writers ever I'm looking forward to reading of these soon
