Read full description of the books:
These are stories written in the forties by Bloch, making money at a penny a word. These are really fun stories about a New York gambler, Damyon Runyan guy, who has fantasy adventures. These are lively and wonderful. One of the stories is about a guy who answers magazine ads and everything they promise comes true for him instantly, terrific and weird. I would give it my highest praise but the book production is lousy. There is interviews between the editor and Bloch and you can tell how annoyed Bloch was in the process, it was annoying and useless. Also, Robert Bloch wrote a new 1988 story about Lefty Feep and blew it, he ignored his own good formula and filled it with lame satire. Just awful. Too bad that great greasy pulp writing had to be finished with a lame piece of fiction that he didn't probably want to write in the first place.

Read information about the authorRobert Albert Bloch was a prolific American writer. He was the son of Raphael "Ray" Bloch (1884, Chicago-1952, Chicago), a bank cashier, and his wife Stella Loeb (1880, Attica, Indiana-1944, Milwaukee, WI), a social worker, both of German-Jewish descent.
Bloch wrote hundreds of short stories and over twenty novels, usually crime fiction, science fiction, and, perhaps most influentially, horror fiction (Psycho). He was one of the youngest members of the Lovecraft Circle; Lovecraft was Bloch's mentor and one of the first to seriously encourage his talent.
He was a contributor to pulp magazines such as Weird Tales in his early career, and was also a prolific screenwriter. He was the recipient of the Hugo Award (for his story "That Hell-Bound Train"), the Bram Stoker Award, and the World Fantasy Award. He served a term as president of the Mystery Writers of America.
Robert Bloch was also a major contributor to science fiction fanzines and fandom in general. In the 1940s, he created the humorous character Lefty Feep in a story for Fantastic Adventures. He also worked for a time in local vaudeville, and tried to break into writing for nationally-known performers. He was a good friend of the science fiction writer Stanley G. Weinbaum. In the 1960's, he wrote 3 stories for Star Trek.
