STRANGE EONS. [Chapel Hill, NC]: Whispers Press, 1978 [i.e. 1979]. Octavo, cloth. First edition. "Cthulhu Mythos novel built from the fundamental premise that the horror stories of H. P. Lovecraft integrate to form a vast mosaic which shows a well-wrought conspiracy against Earth and mankind by monsters from beyond space and time ... Bloch was a perceptive pupil who understood the philosophy of cosmic fatalism underlying Lovecraft's horrors better than most of Lovecraft's many disciples ... Not just a contribution to the Lovecraft mythos but also a study of mythos fiction, whose successes and failures are instructive about the limits of the form." - Barron (ed), Fantasy and Horror (1999) 6-41. Barron (ed), Horror Literature 4-48. Tymn (ed), Horror Literature 4-34. A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#161860).
