From Publishers Weekly:
Pulp icon Bloch (1917–1994) left his mark in many genres—crime fiction, fantasy, science fiction, mystery—but his most notable work was arguably in horror. The prolific volume, consistent quality and historic significance of Bloch's collective work in the genre, especially his considerable short form output, is unparalleled. Subterranean's second Reader's Bloch collection (after 2004's The Fear Planet and Other Unusual Destinations) features some of his best short horror stories. The Bat Is My Brother revolves around a newly unearthed vampire's quest for release; the satirical Tooth or Consequences pits a dentist against an undead bloodsucker with a cavity; and the decidedly Lovecraftian Black Lotus chronicles a wisdom-seeking sultan's drug-induced journey into madness. While many of these macabre tales are clearly dated, their influence on contemporary horror cannot be overlooked. Although young horror readers may find the language and plot conventions outmoded, genre aficionados will find this collection pure pulp gold. (Oct.)
