The first book-length analysis of the work of Robert Bloch (1917-1994).

Best known for writing Psycho, the novel the Hitchcock thriller was based upon, Bloch has written all manner of short stories and thriller novels since the 1930s. This book covers them all in intricate detail through 1986.

"A book-length study was long overdue, and Randall Larson's book fills the gap admirably. Readable, informed, and balanced, it deals with all the sides of Bloch, the writer whose professionalism never disguises his pessimism, the humorist with a grin as wide as a skull's, the master of the macabre who advances the genre into darker territories..." - Ramsey Campbell

"The Reader's Guide to Robert Bloch is a remarkable achievement. Randall Larson's criticism is enthusiastic, informed, and consistency on mark, and should prove the definitive work on one of horror fiction's few genuine grandmasters." - Douglas E. Winter
