RARA-AVIS: Re:Robert Bloch

 I think that Bloch's best work was in the area of morbid (and sometimes ironic) fantasy. He began as a correspondent of, and imitator, of H. P. Lovecraft, and wrote a great deal for WEIRD TALES. His best work may be the short stories "The Skull of the Marquis de Sade" and "Yours Truly, Jack the Ripper." In the mystery field, I like his novel THE NIGHT OF THE RIPPER--which is unrelated to the Ripper short story.
