Publisher: Chaosium, Incorporated

One, the original Mysteries was a collection of Bloch's stories featuring the fictitious book Mysteries of the Worm or Der Vermis Mysteriis, a Necronomicon-style book which would be much referenced in Cthulhu mythos stories from then on( remember, Bloch was one of H.P. Update: I've realized that what is even more important is the people have to be made aware of these wonderful stories before they disappear forever. Last night I finished Mysteries Of The Worm, the Mythos Tales of Robert Bloch (**** out of 5). Weist has authored numerous books, including Bradbury: An Illustrated Life, the first two editions of The Comic Art Price Guide, and a book on Frank R. Strange Eons (1978) (a Cthulhu Mythos novel) There Is a The Complete Stories of Robert Bloch: Volume 3: Last Rites (1987) Fear and Trembling (1989) Mysteries of the Worm (rev. I read first three of those books a way back and I remember, faintly, thinking about how cool a game based on a moving steampunkish city would be. He is of course most famous to the general reading public as the “AUTHOR of PSYCHO! But assuming you do, either from reading the works of Lovecraft and the mythos or maybe just from watching Evil Dead and Army of Darkness, you know that it's a book of ancient knowledge that can send a man mad from its There are so many in the Cthulhu mythos, and many are just as madness inducing as the Necronomicon itself. Bloch wrote hundreds of short stories and over twenty novels, usually crime fiction, science fiction and, perhaps most influentially, horror fiction (Psycho). This collection Bloch would become known for his frequent injections of humor into his horror stories, but you really have to wonder how intentional some of this early stuff was. I enjoy both authors' Mythos tales quiet a bit, so I might just do some tweaking. I'm thinking of running a four session Call Of Cthulhu series this spring and early summer. In addition to his science fiction novels and short stories, he also wrote numerous horror and ghost stories, including several in the Cthulhu mythos. Some of the films he scripted, such as “The House that Dripped Blood” and “Asylum” are also among my favourites since my early teens. These stories attracted a small following among the readers of Weird Tales and other pulp magazines, and his correspondents included a formidable roster of early horror writers. You know I was very unfamiliar with Bloch, outside of him writing the book and then the screenplay for Hitchcock's flick Psycho, but I have to say this makes me want to seek out his other Mythos works. And it's really no surprise, A UK edition of Opener of the Way (1976), as well as Mysteries of the Worm (1981), collect Bloch's Weird Tales/Cthulhu Mythos stories of the 1930s, which he admits were maybe just a little too amateurishly Lovecraftian to be of much interest years later. In addition to his work as an author, Maryson organized the Paul Harland Prize for fantasy, science fiction and horror stories. Paul, which he was updated at the time of his death. Others discovered Lovecraft indirectly, through the stories of August Derleth, who in his own additions to the 'Cthulhu Mythos', as it came to be known, turned Lovecraft's essentially amoral creations into the evil "Great Old Ones", who are opposed by the protective "Elder Gods. Bas-lag would be a good setting but I doubt any of the actual stories would fit. This book of ancient evil was created by Robert Bloch, best known for being the author of Psycho, Alfred Hitchcock's masterpiece. Early works like the crime novel The Scarf (1947), or The Opener of the Way (1945) originally from Arkham House, have it on their later mass market paperback resissues.
