Reception[edit]

Groff Conklin called Someone Like You "certainly the most distinguished book of short stories of 1953 ... all superb".[1] Anthony Boucher and J. Francis McComas praised the collection's "subtly devastating murder stories [as well as] two biting science-fantasties, plus a few unclassifiable gems" and concluded the volume "belong[ed] on your shelves somewhere in the Beerbohm/Collier/Saki section".[2]
