Russell wrote these five stories in the 1950s, in the years of the nuclear era, when he was eighty years old. The stories are: "Satan in the Suburbs or Horrors Manufactured Here," "Corsican Ordeal of Miss X," Infra-Redioscope," Guardians of Parnassus," and "Benefit of Clergy." The London Daily Telegraph called them "cultivated prose of clarity & decorum." The Observer said, "An Exceedingly Entertaining Collection."
