Overview

Best known as the author of "Psycho", Robert Bloch is world-renowned for his stories of horror, mystery, fantasy, and science fiction. Many of the 25 stories in this first volume of "The Complete Stories of Robert Bloch" have been unavailable for decades. The stories are in his classic style of gripping suspense, science fiction and fantasy.

As Bloch writes, "These stories in this collection have a common theme; they deal with monsters. Some of the monsters are human, some are not-- but all of them embody, in one way or another, the fears common to us in our dreams. We call these monsters by many names-- ghosts, vampires, extraterrestrials, changelings. But we recognize them for what they are; manifestations of the secret dreads and desires which lurk beneath the surface of consciousness."

"Bloch has become a virtual fixture on the popular culture landscape." --Publishers Weekly

"If you're not familiar with Bloch's short fiction, find someone to borrow this from; if you already are familiar, you know that you want to own these volumes." --Locus

    Something for everyone!

    Ever since reading Psycho, I've been a huge fan of Robert Bloch. I've read many of Mr. Bloch's novels, but I have to say, I enjoy his short stories the best. Each story in this collection is dramatically different than the stories preceding it. Few authors have Mr. Bloch's ability to write in so many different styles and genres.
