PREFACE
It is only fair to warn the reader that not all the
stories in
this volume are intended to cause amusement. Of the
"Night-
mares," some are purely fantastic, while others
represent
possible, though not probable, horrors. "Zahatopolk" is
designed to be completely serious. The last story,
"Faith
and Mountains," may strike some readers as fantastic,
but, if
so, they must have led sheltered lives, as appears from
the
following :
"Taking its cue from the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth
II
of England this year, the National Pickle Association
started a search for an American girl with the name of
Elizabeth Pickle to be the ruler of Pickledom during
1953.
The Peanut Journal and Nut World." (Quoted from the
Observer, June 28, 1953.)
I wish Elizabeth Pickle all success !
