Author of PSYCHO is a Sci-Fi Master Too

I purchased this book knowing nothing of Robert Bloch's work aside from the classic Hitchcock film, Psycho.

Saying that I was pleasantly surprised would be a gigantic understatement. His talent in the field of science fiction is unbelievable. After doing some research on Bloch in my spare time after listening to this audiobook, I discovered that the majority of Bloch's writing WAS sci-fi. It's strange that he isn't grouped in with the forefathers of classic science fiction considering the amount of work he contributed in the early years of the genre.

Grab this title if you're a fan of Asimov, Sheckley, Ellison, Bradbury, PKD, or any other of the classic sci-fi masters.
