Bloch, Robert: This Crowded Earth (illus.). v1, 25 Sept 2008

Is there anyone here who doesn't recognize the name Robert Bloch. (That's a rhetorical question, so there's no question mark on the previous sentence.)

I guess the first thing one must do when assembling a book is to get the title right, eh? Well, this title is the correct title.

Here's what Amazon has to say about this book:

"Great Sci Fi novel by Robert Bloch! Excerpt: "The telescreen lit up promptly at eight a.m. Smiling Brad came on with his usual greeting. "Good morning—it's a beautiful day in Chicagee!" Harry Collins rolled over and twitched off the receiver. "This I doubt," he muttered. He sat up and reached into the closet for his clothing. Visitors—particularly feminine ones—were always exclaiming over the advantages of Harry's apartment. "So convenient," they would say. "Everything handy, right within reach. And think of all the extra steps you save!" Of course most of them were just being polite and trying to cheer Harry up. They knew damned well that he wasn't living in one room through any choice of his own. The Housing Act was something you just couldn't get around; not in Chicagee these days. A bachelor was entitled to one room—no more and no less. And even though Harry was making a speedy buck at the agency, he couldn't hope to beat the regulations."

Like all books I assemble on MobileRead, this too was assembled to reflect human intervention and artistic judgment.

Note: I located the original cover art, too.

I hope you enjoy it.

Don,

Thanks for posting this! I

've been looking for this book for years. I couldn't remember the author or title, just the story. The fact that you are giving us this for the Sony Reader is icing on the cake.

Thank you very much, Dean. I'm glad you found it!

I like almost all of Bloch's short fiction, but most notably his Lovecraftian short fiction.
