From Booklist:

In a Festschrift for the horror writer best known for the novel Psycho, 30 friends and colleagues offer warm tributes and 20 of Bloch's writings complete the volume. The 20, each introduced by one of the tribute-bearers, include some of Bloch's most famous, such as "That Hell-Bound Train," "Yours Truly, Jack the Ripper," and "I Do Not Love Thee, Doctor Fell" ; less-renowned ones, like "The Pin" and "The Pied Piper Fights the Gestapo" ; and part of a never-produced screenplay about science fictionists Gordon Dickson and Poul Anderson's Hokas, a race of anarchic teddy bears. The tributes are full of affectionate memories, and their authors constitute a who's who of modern sf and horror writers. In all, a good selection of Bloch's stories accompanied by plenty of good feelings about a lovable man. Roland Green

Review:

Tributes to and fiction by horror writer Robert Bloch are compiled in an excellent anthology which profiles contributions for thirty renowned authors influenced by Bloch. These sometimes-personal reflections supplement Bloch's own fine short fiction pieces in a commemorative collection which will especially attract new Bloch fans. -- Midwest Book Review
