Pyramid F-839 Bogey Men FAIR
By Robert Bloch
Cover by John Schoenherr
Long before King, Rice, and other modern practitioners of the horror story, there was Robert Bloch. Besides the (in)famous Psycho, he created little gems of fear and panic in short stories, which were published all over the genre map. Here are ten of the best, mostly from the late 1950s.
A Matter of Life
The Model Wife
The Skull of the Marquis de Sade
Memo to a Movie-Maker
The Thinking Cap
The Man Who Collected Poe
The Ghost Writer
The Man Who Murdered Tomorrow
PLUS a long essay describing (and criticizing) Bloch's career by Sam Moskowitz, entitled, appropriately, "Psycho"-Logical Bloch.
First book publication, 1963. Wrapper is dull, with edge and corner wear. Rubbing at both ends of the spine. Pages are off-white. Binding is tight and square.
