Since becoming a member of the Horror Writers Association, I've collected all of the anthologies they've come out with. One of my favorites is Robert Bloch's Psychos, a disturbing collection of short horror stories featuring a lot of twisted characters. Among the lineup, Stephen King's story,Autopsy Room Four, puts the reader into a very uncomfortable position as the main character is about to go under the knife. Knacker Man was another fun read, one that will chill the blood, written by Richard Parks. Charles Grant introduces us to a homeless man who is in search of a killer and then shows us how he deals with him. Clark Perry offered us a very disturbing tale any horror fan could appreciate - I know I did. My favorite of the twisted tales was a piece called Grandpa's Head, written by Lawrence Watt-Evans. This was a confession-type story where grandpa is discovered as a very dark individual. This creepy story goes to the HEAD of the class as one can never tell what is stored up in the attic. Of course, there are many others but you'll just have to buy the book to read them. Trust me, if you're into horror and psychos, you'll surely enjoy a walk down this haunted road. Also, this book was edited by the creator of Norman Bates, Robert Bloch. Unfortunately, Mr. Bloch passed away back in 1994 before the book was published. Mr. Bloch, thanks for all the chills and thrills. After reading his famous book, Psycho,I've never quite looked at mother the same way.
