Short Story #388: The Shambler from the Stars by Robert Bloch
Title: The Shambler from the Stars
Author: Robert Bloch
ReflectionThis tale was written by Bloch in dedication to Lovecraft--which is why I've included in here. Lovecraft wrote The Haunter of the Dark in response to this tale--with each other using a character sketch of the other author as their protagonist. It was an early work by Bloch (who would go on to write Psycho--yes, that Pyscho), but it's clear here that he definitely can work with psychological horror pretty well.
Rating: 3 (out of 5 stars)
