Book Review
Lovecraft is "the American writer of the twentieth century most frequently compared with Poe, in the quality of his art ... [and] its thematic preoccupations (the obsessive depiction of psychic disintegration in the face of cosmic horror)," writes Joyce Carol Oates in the New York Review of Books. Del Rey has reprinted Lovecraft's stories in three handsome paperbacks. This first volume collects 16 classic tales, including "The Rats in the Walls," "The Call of Cthulhu," "The Dunwich Horror," and "The Colour Out of Space." Introduction by Robert Bloch. Wraparound cover art by Michael Whelan.

This is the collection that true fans of horror fiction have been waiting for: sixteen of H.P. Lovecraft's most horrifying visions, including Lovecraft's masterpiece, THE...


Lovecraft's Legacy
Robert E. Weinberg

Apr 1996
Paperback

From Publishers Weekly
No works by the eponymous legator himself are included in this tribute to the master of horror in his centennial year. His "legacy" is the theme around which these 14 stories are assembled, with an introduction by Robert Bloch, who acknowledges his personal debt to Lovecraft, and afterwords to each of the tales by such authors as Gene Wolfe, Hugh B. Cave and Ed Gorman. Gahan Wilson's "H.P.L." manages to sustain Lovecraft's antiquated and baroque style. F. Paul Wilson invokes the concept of "cosmic horror" in the afterword to final story, "The Barrens . " Indeed, the progression of the stories suggests that they were arranged to lead up to this "concept of another reality impinging on ours," giving rise to an all-encompassing fear that lies beyond humanity's comprehension. These tales feature, among other things,...

Book Description
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...


Tales of the Cthulhu Mythos
H. P. Lovecraft
034542204X

Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
H. P. Lovecraft (1890-1937) was the premier horror writer of his time, and continues to exert an influence on practitioners of that dark art. Most of his work is unified by a common theme--the Cthulhu (kuh-tool-ew) Mythos--in which gods furtively control the fate of mortals, and a mere glimpse of the universe, by nature hostile, is enough to drive a man insane. A number of Lovecraft's peers borrowed the Mythos for use in their own stories, launching a tradition that continues in our day. This generous volume, commemorating the 50th anniversary of the founding of Arkham House (established to preserve Lovecraft's work in hardcover), features 22 Mythos stories by Lovecraft and 15 other writers, including the poetic Clark Ashton Smith, the action-oriented Robert E. Howard (creator of Conan the Barbarian), Arkham's...

Book Review
This crackling psychological thriller introduces police detective Jack Caffery, who is on the hunt for a serial killer the British tabloids have nicknamed "The Millennium Ripper."

The Ripper is behind the murder of five prostitutes, whose bodies are unearthed beneath the rubble of a Greenwich landfill. All the victims have been raped and their bodies horrendously mutilated--but not until after being killed by a dose of heroin injected directly into their brainstems. What stuns Caffery even more is the one detail of the murders the public doesn't know; the hearts of the women have been replaced with live birds sewn into the victims' chests.

Caffery himself is a tortured man, still burdened by guilt over the decades-old murder of his younger brother and frustrated because he cannot bring the man he knows is responsible...

Book Description
It was a dark and stormy night when Mary Crane glimpsed the unlit neon sign announcing the vacancy at the Bates Motel. Exhausted, lost, and at the end of her rope, she was eager for a hot shower and a bed for the night.

Her room was musty buy clean and the plumbing worked. Norman Bates, the manager, seemed nice, if a little odd....

Murder and Mystery in Chicago: Stories from Sara Paretsky to Robert Bloch
Carol-Lynn Rossel Waugh (Editor)
074349315X
May 2004
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
This collection of 11 previously published mysteries set in Chicago follows Dembner's Murder and Mystery in Boston. The stories range in original publication date from 1938Richard Connell's "Brother Orchid,"about a gangster who takes refuge from his enemies in a monastery (which was made into an Edward G. Robinson movie)to 1986 with Sarah Paretsky's female private eye, V. I. Warshawski, trying to help an old school friend suspected of treason. In Robert Bloch's "The Play's the Thing," set in the '20s, an actor moves ruthlessly to get ahead. A collection about Chicago would be incomplete without a story about newspapermen. A police reporter solves a hit-and-run killing to get a scoop in James L. Ullman's "Dead Ringer." The last, longest and best story, "The Spotted Pup" by Dorothy B. Hughes, tells about a recently...
