Children of Horror,
The undying King of Horror has been unleashed again from his most terrifying collection—Night Shift! May he again terrify you tonight, as he has so many.

A quiet town destroys itself to the Tommyknockers. A doctor resurrects roadkill and far worse in an ancient burial ground. And, a disabled astronaut is going through out-of-this-world changes, as we revive the vampiric corpse of… Stephen King.

Stephen King, is the author of several horror, supernatural fiction, crime, science fiction, and fantasy novels. He’s the rare, undying horror master who has gained immortal fame with sales of over 350 million copies. Stephen’s works have been adapted into films, television series, miniseries, and comic books. He’s published 61 novels, and over 200 short stories.

Like his mentors Richard Matheson, Joseph Payne Brennan, and others, Stephen King has won numerous awards. King was awarded several Bram Stoker Awards, World Fantasy Awards, and the British Fantasy Society Awards. He received the Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters from the National Book Foundation. Further awards were the Grand Master Award from the Mystery Writers of America, the National Medal of Arts from the U.S. National Endowment for the Arts, and World Fantasy Award for Life Achievement.

Tonight, we bring you the terrifying "I Am the Doorway". “I Am the Doorway” is a science fiction and horror short story by Stephen King. It was first unleashed in the March 1971 issue of Cavalier Magazine. Stephen later placed it in his 1978 horror masterpiece collection “Night Shift”. The story focuses on Arthur, a disabled former astronaut, and his account of the terrifying change occurring to him. Arthur was exposed to something during his space mission to Venus.

What is the secret to the terrifying change occurring in Arthur? Can his friend Richard see his way to close the door on Arthur and his strange companions…before it’s too late?--JL

Children of Horror,
Nyarlathotep— “The Dark Messenger” comes out of the desert to bring destruction and death. A scientist using alchemy and sorcery attempts to reanimate the dead. And, grave robbers unleash a hellish beast as we rattle the bones of the master of horror—Howard Phillips Lovecraft.

H. P. Lovecraft was a horror and weird fiction master who achieved posthumous fame through his influential works of horror, science fiction, fantasy, and poetry. Many of Lovecraft’s greatest works were first published only in pulp magazines. And strangely, he was virtually unknown as a writer during his lifetime and died in obscure poverty.

Among his most celebrated tales are “The Rats in the Walls”, “The Color Out of Space”, “The Call of Cthulhu”, “At the Mountains of Madness”, “The Shadow Over Innsmouth”, and “The Shadow Out of Time”. These were just some of the stories making up the canon of Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos.

Tonight, the moon is full and gibbous as we present Lovecraft’s most terrifying tale— “The Hound”. This horrific story was one of the most terrifying tales ever published in Weird Tales.

"The Hound" was written by H.P. Lovecraft (September 1922) and published in the February 1924 issue of Weird Tales. “The Hound” was the first story to mention of Lovecraft's fictional text the Necronomicon.

Lovecraft noted the story was inspired on September 16, 1922, after he had toured the Flatbush Reformed Church in Brooklyn and… its graveyard with his friend Rheinhart Kleiner.
In a letter, Lovecraft wrote:
“Around the old pile is a hoary churchyard, with internments dating from around 1730 to the middle of the nineteenth century.... From one of the crumbling gravestones--dated 1747--I chipped a small piece to carry away. It lies before me as I write--and ought to suggest some sort of horror-story. I must place it beneath my pillow as I sleep... who can say what thing might not come out of the centuried earth to exact vengeance for his desecrated tomb? And should it come, who can say what it might not resemble?”

Lovecraft wrote "The Hound" shortly afterwards.

Edgar Allan Poe’s mangled corpse runs red throughout the “The Hound”. Influences such as the "oblong box" taken from the grave, the mysterious "knock on my chamber door", and the "red death" introduced by the Hound are all from Poe's collection of the macabre.

A baying howl in the dark has made the hairs on your neck stand up. There’s a deathly chill in the foggy air as “The Hound” lumbers in to rip you apart.

“The Hound” focuses on a terrified narrator recounting his ghoulish time with his friend St. John. Both have a deranged interest in the occult and robbing graves. They constantly defile crypts and often keep souvenirs of their morbid, nocturnal expeditions. The narrator and St. John set up a private ghastly museum of bones, skulls in various forms of decomposition, paintings, jewelry, and the like in their basement collected from the various graves. Unfortunately for these ghouls, the last grave they rob has a terrifying outcome for our hapless desecrators of the dead.

Can our ghoulish grave robbers bring the vengeful Hound to heel? Or…will they get all torn up about the hellish pooch … licking its paws?--JL

Children of Horror,
A terrified son tries to save his hypnotized father from the god Anubis. In New Orleans, a disillusioned writer attends the Mardi Gras and dinner with the Egyptian god Sebek. And an archaeologist takes a pyramid tour with the evil god--Nephren-Ka, as we continue to decipher and dig our way through a series of Egyptian tales from Robert Bloch. The Egyptian gods hope you won’t climb the walls with our latest Weird Tales.

Our fifth episode is “Fane of the Black Pharaoh”. Our horrific story was published in the December 1937 issue of Weird Tales by our resurrected mummy--Robert Bloch. Our dark master commands you to dig deeper through his Egyptian series.

The creeping introduction of “Fane of the Black Pharaoh” as stated by Weird Tales says:
"Those eyes shone through the shadows; unwinking, unchanging, omniscient in this little world of the dead."
But…Robert Bloch’s introduction brought more blood and fang:
“Terrible was the fame of Nephren-Ka, and more terrible still was the destiny that Captain Cartaret read on the walls of the red-litten underground corridors.”

Our story concerns Captain Cartaret and his exploration to an unknown hieroglyphic wall beneath the pyramids of Egypt. The hieroglyphics are in the forbidden catacombs of Nephren-Ka. Captain Cartaret’s guide may…or may not be all he claims to be.

What is the prophetic secret of the Black Pharaoh? Can our Captain Cartaret decipher the wall in time to fulfill his destiny?--JL

Children of Horror,
A tentacled dark god calls his cult for an apocalyptic awakening. A scientist using alchemy and sorcery attempts to reanimate the dead. And, a man gets more than frost bite with his cooling machine, as we unleash the Hound to bring forth the bones of the master of horror—Howard Phillips Lovecraft.

H. P. Lovecraft was a horror and weird fiction master who achieved posthumous fame through his influential works of horror, science fiction, fantasy, and poetry. Many of Lovecraft’s greatest works were first published only in pulp magazines. And strangely, he was virtually unknown as a writer during his lifetime and died in obscure poverty.

Among his most celebrated tales are “The Rats in the Walls”, “The Color Out of Space”, “The Call of Cthulhu”, “At the Mountains of Madness”, “The Shadow over Innsmouth”, and “The Shadow Out of Time”. These were just some of the stories making up the canon of Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos.
Tonight, we present his most endearing tale— “The Outsider”. This tale is cherished by horror fans the world over. This story was one of the most popular works ever published in Weird Tales by any horror writer.

"The Outsider" is a short story by H. P. Lovecraft written between March and August of 1921. It was first published for Weird Tales in 1926.

The story combines the best elements of horror, fantasy, and gothic fiction to create a nightmarish story. Central to the story are its themes of loneliness, the abnormal human, and the afterlife.

The inspiration for the story, according to Lovecraft, came from Edgar Allan Poe. But it was also influenced by Nathaniel Hawthorne, Mary Shelley, John Keats, Oscar Wilde, and others. He said that, of all his tales, this story most closely resembles the style of his idol Edgar Allan Poe. In a letter H.P. Lovecraft wrote the story "represents my literal though unconscious imitation of Poe at its very height." It’s clear that the opening paragraphs echo Poe's "Berenice". The horror at the party recalls the unmasking scene in "The Masque of the Red Death".

Is the "The Outsider" an autobiographical account of H.P. Lovecraft? Studying the life of Lovecraft, it’s obviously evident he drew from incidents of isolation, loneliness, and rejection shadowing his life. But, in “The Outsider”, Lovecraft’s acceptance of his hideousness, the proclamation that he accepts his place in the world of darkness, roars through in the powerful, heartfelt quote:

"I know always that I am an outsider; a stranger in this century and among those who are still men."

“The Outsider” is the story of a mysterious narrator who has been living alone in a castle for as long as he can remember. The isolated individual decides one night to break free in search of companionship and adventure.

What is the story of this lonely outsider? Can he shine a light on his terrifying secret to his new friends?-JL

Children of Horror,

Tonight, powerful winds sweep across ancient alien wastelands. Fantastic worlds glimmer in all manner of cosmic luminescence. And something in the shadows drips slime then spiders or slithers into the dark recesses of caverns as we revive the horror, science fiction, and fantasy sorcerer, Clark Ashton Smith.

Smith was a self-educated American poet, sculptor, painter and author of fantasy, horror and science fiction short stories. Clark Ashton Smith achieved early local recognition, largely through the enthusiasm of George Sterling, for traditional verse in the vein of Swinburne. As a poet, Smith is grouped with the West Coast Romantics alongside Joaquin Miller, Sterling, and Nora May French and remembered as "The Last of the Great Romantics" and "The Bard of Auburn".

Smith's science fiction and cosmic horror work was praised by his contemporaries. H. P. Lovecraft stated that "in sheer daemonic strangeness and fertility of conception, Clark Ashton Smith is perhaps unexcelled", and Ray Bradbury said that Smith "filled my mind with incredible worlds, impossibly beautiful cities, and still more fantastic creatures".

Clark Ashton Smith, along with Robert E. Howard and H.P. Lovecraft was one of the big three of Weird Tales. However, some of Weird Tales readers objected to his morbidness and violation of pulp traditions. For example, we enjoyed the fantasy critic L. Sprague de Camp remarks about Clark Ashton Smith which stated," nobody since Poe has so loved a well-rotted corpse."

Like Robert Bloch and Frank Belknap Long, Smith was a member of the Lovecraft circle and his literary friendship with Lovecraft lasted from 1922 until Lovecraft's death in 1937. This is evident in numerous letters between these horror masters. Clark Ashton’s works as well as his colleagues Lovecraft and Bloch, are marked by an extraordinarily rich and ornate vocabulary, a cosmic perspective and a vein of sardonic and sometimes ribald humor.

Of his writing style, Smith stated: "My own conscious ideal has been to delude the reader into accepting an impossibility, or series of impossibilities, by means of a sort of verbal black magic, in the achievement of which I make use of prose-rhythm, metaphor, simile, tone-color, counter-point, and other stylistic resources, like a sort of incantation."

"The Dweller in the Gulf" is a short story by Clark Ashton Smith, first published in Wonder Stories (1933). The story focuses on three explorers on the planet Mars who investigate an ancient underground cavern finding a strange troglodyte cult and something terrifying.

Who is the Dweller in the Gulf? Will our intrepid explorers "blindly" go to their doom after their encounter beneath the surface of Mars?--JL

Children of horror, follow me as we cross the ghoul guarded gateways, the labyrinth of the lost, and the decrepit crypt into that cherished abyss that is moonlight, swamp, and darkest night. Forever are we outsiders to this world and the coil that is man. And, for that relish in the strange, the grotesque, and the unnerving as we push ever farther, without a torch, flashlight, or candle into shadowed waterways, fog-fetid bayous, and amongst moss-covered oaks. These truly are our home.

Our name is LEGION horror fans for we are many. My LEGION, walk the cobwebbed, cyclopean stairs with me. Climb the bat filled bell tower on the expanse of endless night wind. And fly through mists into ancient cypress as we learn the mysteries of creatures in the dark.

I promise, as we splash and lumber through the darkness, to protect you from the ghastly ghouls within.
Well…maybe.

After howling at a leprous moon, we went digging deep into a vampire’s grave for tonight’s horror master. Our undying master’s time is long overdue. May he terrify you tonight as he has so many.

A quiet town falls prey to a plague…of vampires. A doctor resurrects roadkill and far worse in an ancient burial ground. And, a comatose man awakens with a supernatural gift to save humanity. These are just a few of the terrifying creations by the “King of Horror”, Stephen King.

Stephen King, is the author of several horror, supernatural fiction, crime, science fiction, and fantasy novels. He’s the rare, undying horror master who has gained immortal fame with sales of over 350 million copies. Stephen’s works have been adapted into films, television series, miniseries, and comic books. He’s published 61 novels, and over 200 short stories.

Like his mentors Richard Matheson, Joseph Payne Brennan, and others, Stephen King has won numerous awards. King was awarded several Bram Stoker Awards, World Fantasy Awards, and the British Fantasy Society Awards. He received the Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters from the National Book Foundation. Further awards were the Grand Master Award from the Mystery Writers of America, the National Medal of Arts from the U.S. National Endowment for the Arts, and World Fantasy Award for Life Achievement.

“One For The Road” is a terrifying tale by Stephen King first published in the 1977 March/April issue of “Maine”. Later the short story was placed in the 1978 collection “Night Shift”.
The tale focuses on an elderly man named Booth and the strange rescue of a stranded family in a blizzard. The family’s vehicle is stuck in a snow drift…near…Jerusalem’s Lot.

Can Booth and Tookey Tooklander recover the Lumley family in time for last call? Or will Salem’s Lot sink its teeth into new victims?--JL

"That Hell-Bound Train" is a short supernatural story by Robert Bloch. It was originally published in The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction in September 1958.

The creation of “That Hell-Bound Train” is a curious story. Originally shaped by William Tenn, who at the time had an editorial position at Fantasy and Science Fiction salvaging stories that had been selected by Anthony Boucher as "not quite good enough to be published, but still too good to have been rejected". From an interview in 2001, Tenn explained that the original version of "That Hell-Bound Train" had been "an absolutely fine piece of work that just didn't have a usable ending"; consequently, he devised a new ending "and persuaded Robert Bloch to write it".

"That Hell-Bound Train" won the Hugo Award for Best Short Story in 1959. “Comic Book Resources” has described it as "a classic deal-with-the-devil tale with a nice twist at the end". The story centers around Martin, a young hobo with a fondness for trains, considering whether to abandon crime when a strange train pulls up beside him on a desolate train track. The train conductor offers Martin anything he wants, in return for which he will "ride that Hell-Bound Train" when he dies.

Will Martin take our devilish Conductor’s offer? Can Martin beat the odds and....shame the Devil?--JL

Leonid Andreyev was a Russian playwright, novelist and short-story writer. This horror writer is considered to be a father of Expressionism in Russian literature. Andreyev was one of the most talented and prolific representatives of the Silver Age period. As Richard Masterton, Stephen King, and many others, Andreyev's style combined elements of realism, naturalism, and symbolism in his works.

As a horror writer, Leonid’s work garnered him the honored distinction as “The Russian Edgar Allan Poe”.
This terrifying introduction to “Lazarus” still gives us a frightening chill.
When Lazarus left the grave, where, for three days and three nights he had been under the enigmatical sway of death, and returned alive to his dwelling, for a long time no one noticed in him those sinister oddities, which, as time went on, made his very name a terror.
—Leonid Andreyev
Tonight, we present his most terrifying work— “Lazarus”.

What secrets from beyond Death do Lazarus’s eyes hide? Will Lazarus ever find the warmth of Life again before his second death…and come in out of the desert cold? --JL

We received quite the stir in our tomb recently. We were honored with a verification by The Horror Writer’s Association for “Wolves, Wings, & Other Things”. We’re keeping our claws crossed and breaking a wishbone or three for luck in the hope of further advancement. Hopefully, we get to howl at the moon if we win.
In the meantime, we’ll keep slithering on to new novels and quite a few new stories for the channel and collections.

Nathaniel Hawthorne was a novelist, dark romantic, and short story writer. His works such as “Young Goodman Brown” and “The House of the Seven Gables” often focus on history, morality, and religion. It can be said his works are still photographs of the dark elements of humanity during his times.

He was born in 1804 in Salem, Massachusetts, to Nathaniel Hathorne and the former Elizabeth Clarke Manning. His ancestors include John Hathorne, the only judge involved in the Salem witch trials who never repented of his actions.

Hawthorne published several short stories in periodicals, which he collected in 1837 as Twice-Told Tales. He worked at the Boston Custom House and was a member of Brook Farm, a transcendentalist community. After 1842, he and his wife moved to The Old Manse in Concord, Massachusetts, then later moved to Salem, the Berkshires, then to The Wayside in Concord. It was during these latter years that Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter was published in 1850, followed by a succession of other novels.

Much of Hawthorne's writing focused on New England. And many of his famous works featured moral metaphors with an anti-Puritan inspiration. Nathaniel Hawthorne’s works are considered part of the Romantic Movement. They are specifically known as dark romanticism for their reflective themes of the darker elements of society. Hawthorne’s fascination with community was evident in his writing which centered on the inherent evil and sin of humanity. However, his works at times have a preachy moral message contrasted with an ingenious deep psychological complexity.

Tonight, we celebrate the spirit of Christmas in grand fashion with Nathaniel Hawthorne. Nathaniel Hawthorne invites you to a special Christmas banquet where guests are invited in a most curious manner. One guest in particular may give you a chill as you cast your shadow on his wall.

What’s the great secret of the Christmas Banquet? Will our Gervayse Hastings ever find what he is looking for and … come in out of the cold.-JL

Children of Horror,
Commanded by a child, Civil War ghosts stalk silently through moonlit forests. A son, a crazed lunatic, and a sad ghost each tell how a woman was murdered. And, a man comes to terms with his permanent residence, as we bring back the ghost of Ambrose Bierce…just in time for Christmas.

Tonight, we present in the Christmas spirit, “An Inhabitant of Carcosa”. This short story by master storyteller Ambrose Bierce was first published in the San Francisco Newsletter of December 25, 1886. Later it was reprinted as part of two of Bierce's collections—"Tales of Soldiers and Civilians” and “Can Such Things Be?

The story is told by an unknown narrator traveling in an unfamiliar wilderness. He hails from the ancient city of Carcosa and awakens from a fever-induced sleep to find himself lost.
Can our narrator ever find his way back to Carcosa? And, if he should, will he re-kindle a little of the ghosts of Christmas past?--JL

Children of horror, follow me as we cross the ghoul guarded gateways, the labyrinth of the lost, and the decrepit crypt into that cherished abyss that is moonlight, swamp, and darkest night. Forever are we outsiders to this world and the coil that is man. And, for that relish in the strange, the grotesque, and the unnerving as we push ever farther, without a torch, flashlight, or candle into shadowed waterways, fog-fetid bayous, and amongst moss-covered oaks. These truly are our home.

Our name is LEGION horror fans for we are many. My LEGION, walk the cobwebbed, cyclopean stairs with me. Climb the bat filled bell tower on the expanse of endless night wind. And fly through mists into ancient cypress as we learn the mysteries of creatures in the dark.

I promise, as we splash and lumber through the darkness, to protect you from the
ghastly ghouls within.

Well…maybe

Civil War ghosts stalk silently through moonlit forests. A horrific creature attacks a man’s dead wife in the dark. And a soldier literally has his life pass before his eyes as he is hanged. These are just a few of the horrific stories by Ambrose Bierce.

Ambrose Bierce was an American short story writer, journalist, poet, and Civil War veteran. He is the author of the comedic “The Devil's Dictionary” which was named as one of "The 100 Greatest Masterpieces of American Literature" by the American Revolution Bicentennial Administration. Bierce’s most horrific and anthologized work, "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge", has been described as "one of the most famous and frequently anthologized stories in American literature".

His best short story collection by far though is Bierce’s “Tales of Soldiers and Civilians”. This horrific work was cited by the Grolier Club as one of the 100 most influential American books printed before 1900.

Bierce was regarded as one of the most influential journalists in the United States. He was a pioneer in realist fiction influencing such authors as Richard Matheson, Edgar Allan Poe and H. P. Lovecraft. And, just as Poe, Ambrose Bierce was considered an influential and feared literary critic.

Ambrose Bierce’s greatest story was his own. In December 1913, Bierce traveled to Chihuahua, Mexico, to gain first-hand experience of the Mexican Revolution. While traveling with rebel troops he disappeared. He was never seen again.

As we read tonight’s story, we look on the peaceful, fog filled forests and fields near Chickamauga Creek. Ancient cannon, monuments of stone, and looming graves stand as silent sentimental to a horrifying past of bloodshed and murder. A time when brother fought brother blinded by insanity. Hopefully, people are taught or remember the violent history of the Civil War. Unfortunately, after over a century, I see the demoniacal blood lust for a new civil war has reappeared. The lumbering possibility has oozed up once again in our current time.

Are we caged animals doomed never to learn peace and destined always to repeat our atrocities?

Chilled by icy, misted night…on this desolate field of Death… I wonder.

"Chickamauga" is a horror story written by Ambrose Bierce on January 20, 1889. It first appeared in the “San Francisco Examiner” and later in the collection “Tales of Soldiers and Civilians”.

The tale focuses on a child playing war in the woods. He strays off and becomes lost on the former battlefield of Chickamauga.

Can this little boy find his way home? Or will the child become another ghostly casualty to Chickamauga?--JL

Children of Horror,
A terrified son tries to save his hypnotized father from the god Anubis. The curse of Scarabaeus crawls out for a reckoning on a mummy thief. And in New Orleans, a disillusioned writer attends the Mardi Gras and dinner with the Egyptian god Sebek, as we continue to slither through a series of Egyptian tales from Robert Bloch. The Egyptian gods desire you to “pass a good time on the bayou, che” with our latest lurid tale.

Our fourth episode is “The Secret of Sebek”. This terrifying tale was published in the November 1937 issue of Weird Tales and continues our crawl through the Robert Bloch Egyptian series.
As stated by Weird Tales:
What grisly horror, spawned in prehistoric ages in ancient Egypt, stalked through the weird house in New Orleans? A tale of the Mardi Gras!
This slithering story concerns our narrator’s visit to New Orleans during Mardi Gras. While kicking off the festivities he is invited to Henricus Vanning’s special party for “The Coffin Club”. Our narrator is asked to settle a dispute over a stolen mummy for the god Sebek.

Can our narrator warn “The Coffin Club” in time to avoid the wrath of Sebek? Or will he just run away after dinner…crying crocodile tears? --JL

Children of Horror,

We dedicate tonight’s tale to horror fan Brian Fry! Brian, thank you for pointing us to the Postal 2: Paradise Lost Intro. The creative team did a great job on that project!

A sled dog watches his owner freeze to death in the Yukon. A scientist is sacrificed by head hunters to an alien. And, eerily in the time of the COVID-19 pandemic, a society battles the Scarlet Plague, as we beat Death with Jack London. His first horrific, science fiction tale may bring back the dead!

Jack London was a journalist, novelist, and social activist. He was also an innovator in science fiction and horror with such tales as “The Scarlett Plague” and “The Red One”. London is one of the first American authors to become an international celebrity and earn a large fortune from writing.

“A Thousand Deaths” was written by Jack London in 1899. It’s his first published work. The story focuses on an unnamed narrator who has suffered through experiments by his mad scientist father to induce his own death. And, then to be resurrected. This is one of the earliest science fiction stories obviously influencing movies such as 1939’s “Torture Ship”, 1980’s “Altered States” and 1990’s “Flatliners”. And we’ll thankfully skip the 2017 Flatliners which should long stay buried…and forgotten.

Tonight, you are a prisoner onboard your mad scientist father’s vessel. Daddy has been conducting some killer experiments on you…literally. Will you find a way to escape his crazed experiments? Or will you continue to die a thousand deaths?--JL

And now RUMBLE!!!

Children of Horror,

A terrified man encounters the curse of Scarabaeus after stealing a mummy. A father and son pay a terrible price for angering the god Anubis. And a robber of tombs is left to die alone in the desert after encountering the Faceless God, as we unwrap a series of Egyptian tales from Robert Bloch. These may make you want to call your mummy.

We present our series “The Egyptian Tales of Robert Bloch” which focus on Robert Bloch Egyptian tales published from 1936 to 1938 for Weird Tales. It’s no doubt the 1932 script by John L. Balderson for Universal’s “The Mummy” cursed Bloch to write his own horrific canon.

For our first episode we present “The Faceless God”. This lurid tale published in the May 1936 issue of Weird Tales began the Bloch Egyptian series.
As stated by Weird Tales:
A tremendous story of a fearful trek across the Egyptian desert, and the malignant stone idol that waited for the doctor’s return.

The story concerns an evil dealer in antiquities, Doctor Stugatche, and his expedition to a forgotten statue in the desert. The statue belongs to a god so vile that all record of the being was erased.
Can Dr Stugatche and his team find the statue of the Faceless God? Or, will he become another victim to Nyarlathotep?--JL

An aged cloak turns a man into a vampire. A hotel clerk has trouble controlling his murderous “Mother”. And a lunar flower causes people to howl at the moon…as werewolves, as we stalk around the Bloch—Robert Bloch that is. His latest tale is sure to offend the gods…of darkness.

Our “From-the-Grave Mentor, Robert Bloch, was a fiction writer with a diverse array of stories in crime, horror, fantasy and science fiction. He is best known as the writer of “Psycho” that led to Alfred Hitchcock’s masterpiece, many great tales on Rod Serling’s “Night Gallery”, Weird Tales, Strange Stories, and others. Our personal favorite is Bloch’s script for the Hammer horror film classic, “The House That Dripped Blood”.
Horror and comedy were his trademark. Robert Bloch’s fondness for humor in horror was evident in puns. It could be seen in the titles of his story collections such as “Tales in a Jugular Vein”, “Such Stuff as Screams Are Made Of” and “Out of the Mouths of Graves”.
And of course, there’s the classic Bloch favorite line that tickles our funny bone, “I have the heart of a child. I keep it in a jar on my shelf.”
A protégé’ to H.P. Lovecraft, Robert Bloch was in a select group known as the Lovecraft Circle with such greats as Frank Belknap Long, Robert E. Howard, Clark Ashton Smith and many more. Learning with these masters, Bloch created hundreds of short stories and over 30 novels.
Robert Bloch won numerous awards in writing. He won The Hugo Award ("That Hell-Bound Train"), The Bram Stoker Award, and The World Fantasy Award. Bloch served a term as president of The Mystery Writers of America (1970). He was a member of The Mystery Writers of America, Science Fiction Writers of America, The Writers Guild of America, and The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Most notably, there is one society he probably still is an undead member of --The Count Dracula Society.

“The Seal of the Satyr” is a short story written by Robert Bloch and published for Strange Stories in 1939. The horrific, sacrificial tale certainly has led many horror writers to borrow heavily from this incantation. However, Bloch’s version is on a whole more psychotic, and far more terrifying level.
This lurid tale centers on Roger Talquist and his journey with Papa Lepolis to an ancient Greek altar that had once served to worship the gods of the forest.
Will Roger find the altar with Papa Lepolis? How will such a discovery change him and seal his fate?--JL

Immortal Jack the Ripper is loose in Chicago. Hotel clerk Norman Bates still has trouble with his murderous “Mother”. And, a man witnesses a vampiric feast in an abbey, as we crawl out of Hell and down the Bloch to another fiery tale from Robert Bloch. His latest flamethrower may shame…the Devil.

Robert Bloch was a writer of horror, fantasy, science fiction and mystery. He won numerous awards for stories in all genre. Horror master, Lovecraft Circle member, and former president of The Mystery Writers of America were just a few of Robert Bloch’s many achievements. He was the writer of Psycho that led to Alfred Hitchcok’s masterpiece, the Hugo Award winning That Hellbound Train a fan favorite on our channel, terrifying Egyptian stories, and the eternally popular Jack the Ripper tales.

We dedicate tonight’s tale to horror fan--Thomas Swafford! Thank you for bringing tonight’s classic Bloch tale to our attention. And, we must agree that the 1964 Alfred Hitchcock episode “The Sign of Satan” based on this story, is a devilish gem with a youthful Christopher Lee as Karl Jorla.
Robert Bloch’s “Return to the Sabbath” was published in Weird Tales for the July 1938 issue. As stated in Weird Tales:
A shuddery weird tale of Hollywood and the film industry—a story of the gruesome thing that emerged from the burial crypt.
This evening, you are in a Hell of a town—Hollywood, unravelling a mystery. Our narrator may have found a rising horror star to rival Bela Lugosi. Or, has he found a nut case who truly believes he is in the fight of his life with… a witch’s coven?
What fiery secrets do the eyes of Karl Jorla hide? Can our narrator stop the coven from killing Jorla in time for his closing act?-JL
