Indexer Notes

The plot of this story is virtually identical to the story "Revenge" by Samuel Blas, which appeared in Collier's Weekly, January 11, 1947, and was adapted to an episode of the "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" television show in 1955.

The same plot was used for the story "Revenge" in Witches Tales (Harvey, 1951 Series) 21(October 1953).
