Overview

In his lifetime, Robert Bloch wrote more than four hundred short stories and a dozen novels, including some of the most celebrated works of psychological suspense and horror of the twentieth century. When Robert Bloch was dying, hundreds of people - fans, fellow writers, people he had been close to for decades, and others whom he had never met - wrote to thank him for his work and his impact on their lives. Their words were the inspiration for Robert Bloch: Appreciations of the Master. This book, then, is a collection unlike any other. Thirty writers, filmmakers, and actors have opened their hearts to speak about Robert Bloch, his influence on their careers, and his friendship. The book presents examples of the very best of Bloch's short fiction, including the rarely reprinted "The Dead Don't Die!" An excerpt from an unproduced screenplay by Bloch, adapting Poul Anderson and Gordon R. Dickson's Hoka!, appears here for the first time anywhere. Bloch's nonfiction is not neglected, for this volume also includes one of his articles on the role of violence and gore in film, "The Clown at Midnight."

Bloch's greatest fans, his fellow writers, share their memories of the man and his writing. This volume collects essays, personal reminiscences, and reflections on Bloch and his work by many of the people whose lives he touched and careers he inspired, including William Peter Blatty, Ray Bradbury, John Carpenter, Arthur C. Clarke, Wes Craven, Stephen King, and Peter Straub.
