Early Tales of the Cthulhu Mythos by the Author of Psycho
“H.P. Lovecraft - like his creation, Cthulhu - never truly died. He and his influence live on, in the work of so many of us who were his friends and acolytes. Today we have reason for rejoycing in the widespread revival of his canon. . . . If a volume such as this has any justification for its existence, it’s because Lovecraft’s readers continue to search out stories which reflect his contribution to the field of fantasy. . . . [The tales in this book] represent a lifelong homage to HPL . . . I hope you’ll accept them for what they were and are - a labor of love.” - Robert Bloch
Robert Bloch has become one with his fictional counterpart Ludvig Prinn: future generations of readers will know him as an eldritch name hovering over a body of nightmare texts. To know them will be to know him. And thus we have decided to release a new and expanded third edition of Robert Bloch’s Mysteries of the Worm. This collection contains four more Mythos tales - ”The Opener of the Way”, “The Eyes of the Mummy”, “Black Bargain”, and “Philtre Tip” - not included in the first two editions.
