086 Dream Town by Henry Slesar

A classic tale of a strange little town that may be hiding a much darker secret! Welcome to Dream Town by Henry Slesar

Originally published in January 1957 in “Fantastic Universe”.

Henry Slesar is an author known for his use of irony and surprise “twist” endings in his work and is most well known for his wide variety of work with the master of suspense, Alfred Hitchcock. 

Slesar’s story, ‘M is for the Many’ was the first story Hitchcock purchased the rights to adapt, which kicked off a long and successful stretch of collaborations between the two.
