A non-sibilant hiss

"You!" said Sir Roderick finally. And in this connection I want to stat that it's all rot to say you can't hiss a word that hasn't an "s" in it. the way he pushed out that "You!" sounded like an angry cobra, and I am betraying no secrets when I mention that it did me no good whatsoever.
