    Mysteries of the Worm is a collection of short stories by Robert Bloch Psycho that involve the Lovecraft mythos Being an avid fan of this mythos, I felt compelled to get as many perspectives from the authors involved as possible.As with other collections, I will give my thoughts on the individual stories.The Secret of the Tomb involves a man going into his ancestral burial vault to face his destiny At only a few pages in length, it served to entertain me without getting old Not too shabby.T Mysteries of the Worm is a collection of short stories by Robert Bloch Psycho that involve the Lovecraft mythos Being an avid fan of this mythos, I felt compelled to get as many perspectives from the authors involved as possible.As with other collections, I will give my thoughts on the individual stories.The Secret of the Tomb involves a man going into his ancestral burial vault to face his destiny At only a few pages in length, it served to entertain me without getting old Not too shabby.The ...

    Mysteries of the Worm made me think back to a lot of the strange Egyptian stories I couldn t get enough of as a kid and absolutely loved mummies returning for vengeance, strange curses that fell on people who opened tombs, etc While not all of Bloch s writing in this volume consist of his Egyptian tales, the book as a whole left me with inner squeals of delight Sure, there are some pieces that are not so hot, but overall, this is a great read Robert Bloch was not just the author of Psycho, Mysteries of the Worm made me think back to a lot of the strange Egyptian stories I couldn t get enough of as a kid and absolutely loved mummies returning for vengeance, strange curses that fell on people who opened tombs, etc While not all of Bloch s writing in this volume consist of his Egyptian tales, the book as a whole left me with inner squeals of delight Sure, there are some pieces that are not so hot, but overall, this is a great read Robert Bloch was not just the author of Psycho, the...

    Technically not all of Robert Bloch s Cthulhu Mythos stories There s about 5 or 6 missing that were added in a later version of this book However these are the cream of the crop and a must for any Lovecraft enthusiasts out there Bloch was the youngest of the Lovecraftian Circle and these stories could almost be called fan fiction For the most part the tales were written in the late 30s for the magazine Weird Tales.They represent a young developing writer who would later leave his Lovecrafti Technically not all of Robert Bloch s Cthulhu Mythos stories There s about 5 or 6 missing that were added in a later version of this book However these are the cream of the crop and a must for any Lovecraft enthusiasts out there Bloch was the youngest of the Lovecraftian Circle and these stories could almost be called fan fiction For the most part the tales were written in the late 30s for the magazine Weird Tales.They represent a young developing writer who would later leave his Lovecraftian ...

    One of my reading goals is to read as much of the material from the original Weird Tales magazines as possible, especially the big name authors I enjoy these old stories from the Unique Magazine, even when they re not masterpieces they re fun and have a certain charm.And speaking of not masterpieces, that s the case with many stories here, there s a lot of early work here, and one can see Bloch improve as he goes along Some of these stories, especially the early ones can run together a b One of my reading goals is to read as much of the material from the original Weird Tales magazines as possible, especially the big name authors I enjoy these old stories from the Unique Magazine, even when they re not masterpieces they re fun and have a certain charm.And speaking of not masterpieces, that s the case with many stories here, there s a lot of early work here, and one can see Bloch improve as he goes along Some of these stories, especially the early ones can run together a bit with t...

    Judging by the average level of horror and dread, Robert Bloch might be best author of Mythos stories beside Lovecraft himself, one of his biggest contributions being the enrichment of the Nyarlathotep lore by means of adding elements from egyptian mythology Since this is an anthology spanningthan 20 years, the quality of the stories differs While some are decent Fane of the Black Pharaoh, others, like Notebook Found in a Deserted House are amongst the best and most chilling tales eve Judging by the average level of horror and dread, Robert Bloch might be best author of Mythos stories beside Lovecraft himself, one of his biggest contributions being the enrichment of the Nyarlathotep lore by means of adding elements from egyptian mythology Since this is an anthology spanningthan 20 years, the quality of the stories differs While some are decent Fane of the Black Pharaoh, others, like Notebook Found in a Deserted House are amongst the best and most chilling tales ever written

    Robert Bloch wrote voluminously across a variety of fiction genres during his life To many, he may be best known for writing Psycho as well as episodes of The Twilight Zone and Star Trek The Original Series The latest version of this collection contains all or at least the bulk of his weird fiction work, including the stories set in turn of the century Egypt discussed by H.P Lovecraft and his lovecraftian mythos stories as well.This was a second time around on some of these stories for me Robert Bloch wrote voluminously across a variety of fiction genres during his life To many, he may be best known for writing Psycho as well as episodes of The Twilight Zone and Star Trek The Original Series The latest version of this collection contains all or at least the bulk of his weird fiction work, including the stories set in turn of the century Egypt discussed by H.P Lovecraft and his lovecraftian mythos stories as well.This was a second time around on some of these stories for me, and o...

    One of the many slightly unusual things about HP Lovecraft was his willingness to share his creations with other authors Not only was he willingly to, but he often invited others to come and play in his sandbox, which is one of the things that makes the Cthulhu Mythos such a rich tapestry, as each author would add to the overall mythology.Robert Bloch started his writing career as a teenager, having been encouraged by Lovecraft to write weird fiction And the first story of his accepted for p One of the many slightly unusual things about HP Lovecraft was his willingness to share his creations with other authors Not only was he willingly to, but he often invited others to come and play in his sandbox, which is one of the things that makes the Cthulhu Mythos such a rich tapestry, as each author would add to the overall mythology.Robert Bloch started his writing career as a teenager, having been encouraged by Lovecraft to write weird fiction And the first story of his accepted for pu...

    An amazing read that has all of Robert Bloch s Cthulhu Mythos short stories in it They are all arranged chronologically and you can easily see the change and evolution of his writing of the Mythos It starts out similar to Lovecraft s style and quickly turns into his own style that gives it a very unique and differing feel from Lovecraft Bloch s characters are many of the time writers or treasure hunters Like Lovecraft, his characters are educated, but unlike Lovecraft whose characters tended An amazing read that has all of Robert Bloch s Cthulhu Mythos short stories in it They are all arranged chronologically and you can easily see the change and evolution of his writing of the Mythos It starts out similar to Lovecraft s style and quickly turns into his own style that gives it a very unique and differing feel from Lovecraft Bloch s characters are many of the time writers or treasure hunters Like Lovecraft, his characters are educated, but unlike Lovecraft whose characters tended ...

    A collection of Cthulhu mythos tales by Robert Bloch Not all of them are great some are quite badly written In general, the later stories are better than the earlier ones, as Bloch gradually finds his own voice instead if trying to imitate HPL s writing style Quite a few of the stories are familiar to Call of Cthulhu players, as they have been used as source material and inspiration for role playing game scenarios Recommended for HPL fans and nerds in general.
