Writer’s Bloch

As a kid I was big fan of Robert Bloch’s novels and short fiction. Psycho was just the tip of the iceberg. The novels Firebug and The Scarf were equally chilling and, of course, his Hugo award-winning story "That Hell-Bound Train." I thought I’d read everything but then, the other day, while browsing at Hard Case Crime, I discovered two books I’d never heard of: Spiderweb and Shooting Star. Originally published in a double-novel edition from Ace, they’re back (back-to-back) as a Hard Case reprint.

This double edition is buried deep in the publisher’s list, but worth the scroll. You can also read a sample which ought to entice you to order if you’re looking for some cheap holiday thrills. LINK
