n.d. [c1978]. Manuscript. Unbound. Near fine. The author's working typescript. Top copy. Signed by the author to first leaf. 198pp, typed recto only. Numerous revisions in pen and strike-throughs (strikes-through?). Evidently a fairly early draft, showing many interesting alterations. Much like his most famous work Psycho, But the Serpent was Coming is a horror novel lacking the supernatural elements most commonly associated with Bloch's work. The book was published first as There's a Serpent in Eden, and then The Cunning. [7162, Hyraxia Books].
