More Good Words on PSYCHO: SANITARIUM (out 4/12)…

My novelPsycho: Sanitarium, is due out in hardcover and e-book from Thomas Dunne Books/St. Martin’s Press on April 12th. It’s the authorized direct sequel to Robert Bloch’s classic Psycho, and tells what happens after Norman Bates is arrested and sent to the State Hospital for the Criminally Insane. You can pre-order it here.

We sent out galleys to a number of fine writers, and this is what they had to say…

Bloch is a favorite of mine and Chet Williamson’s novel captures Bloch’s cleverness, humor, as well as the disturbing aspect of making us sympathize with Norman’s sad background.

A marvelous continuation of Bloch’s character and attitudes that somehow manages to stand tall on its on two feet due to Williamson’s total grasp of the original material.
