about

A selection of the Psycho author’s many macabre contributions to the great Weird Tales Magazine, as published between 1935 and 1952.

THE SUICIDE IN THE STUDY
The story first appeared in Weird Tales in its June 1935 edition. It tells of a modern sorcerer, and his efforts to obtain a state of 'dual personality'.

THE MANDARIN'S CANARIES
This one first appeared in Weird Tales in its September 1938 edition. It tells of a torture-mad Chinese ruler, and his aptly named Garden of Pain.

DEATH IS AN ELEPHANT
Published under the pseudonym, Nathan Hindin, the story tells of the circus, and a series of deaths involving a sacred white elephant.

THE GHOST-WRITER
The story first appeared in Weird Tales in May 1940, and tells of an ambitious weird fiction writer, whose insatiable desire for success leads to his doom.

THE FIDDLER'S FEE
First appearing in Weird Tales back in July of 1940, this one tells of a young musician who enters into an unholy pact in order to become the greatest fiddler that ever lived.

HELL ON EARTH
This rare novelette, which debuted in Weird Tales in March 1942, tells of a strange experiment involving the Prince of Darkness atop a New York skyscraper.

BLACK BARGAIN
The story first appeared in Weird Tales in its May 1942 edition. It tells of a situation involving a man who is quite literally afraid of his own shadow.

THE STRANGE ISLAND OF DOCTOR NORK
This one first appeared in the March 1949 edition of Weird Tales Magazine. A parody of H. G. Wells' "The Island of Doctor Moreau", the story tells of an eccentric doctor, and his 'comically' odd experiments...

LUCY COMES TO STAY
Debuting in Weird Tales back in January of 1952, the story was later adapted by Bloch as a segment of the 1972 anthology film, "Asylum", starring Peter Cushing. It tells the story of Vi and her friend, Lucy, who can only be described as a 'bad influence'.
