About this Item

SCREAMS marks the first hardcover publication of three unusual tales of psychological suspense: The Will to Kill, Firebug, and The Star Stalker. The anguished protagonists of The Will to Kill and Firebug struggle (often unsuccessfully) against the dark and repressed elements of their own psyches. The Star Stalker shares a somewhat similar plot: an anguished killer haunts the protagonist and his social circle. But instead of those earlier novels' guilt-ridden, intensely internal focus, The Star Stalker's narrative is more concerned with the outer world--in this case Hollywood in the Golden era. Bloch's thirty year career as a screenwriter (most famously for PSYCHO) lends an authenticity to this behind-the-scenes novel, the coming of age of a young screenwriter. Bloch established a uniquely mordant approach to the macabre. His writing has influenced the modern psychological horror novel. As new, unread copy in red cloth boards, in fine, mylar-protected dust jacket. MODLIT1. Bookseller Inventory # 18999
