(2/2) Lookit that pear-shaped civil servant. Inside that cheap suit surges beautiful darkness:
(1/2) My late grandpa, I just discovered, was an unpublished poet. Found this in a scrapbook. Goth as FUCK:
Steven Weber just referred to Trump as "Mousselini" and now I'm so happy I can't stand it.
@jennimi @JessicaJones Hope that helps? Not presuming I understand that kind of trauma. But @JessicaJones is fiction that aids empathy.

31 HORROR STORIES -- "A Toy for Juliette" (1967)

@ 1:00 PM

Look, please PLEASE don't list the other Robert Bloch's I should've listed here. "Yours Truly, Jack the Ripper", "Sweets to the Sweet", etc. The man's a master. I picked the one I liked the best. There are others -- probably better, probably worse. You should read everything. Anyone who can crank out PSYCHO, and still love those godawful puns the way he did was working on an exotic plane of thought.

But a story like "Toy", which combines science fiction, fantasy, magic realism and, in the end, bloody honking horror, deserves a spot at the top. As does Bloch.
