For fifty years literary circles have referred to them as "The Group"--twelve supremely talented writers from what was dubbed "the California school". They defied convention. They changed our expectations. They were the rebels and non-conformists who gave us Something Wicked This Way Comes, Logan's Run, I Am Legend, Deathbird Stories, and Psycho. Their stories amazed, delighted, and terrified. They established the roots of today's literature of the fantastic, but their range was extraordinary--from science fiction to fantasy, from crime to horror, from the Wild West to contemporary small town America. Now these twelve talents appear together in a single anthology, with nine original stories, and three classic reprints (including a contribution by Robert Bloch which has been out of print for more than 50 years). Featuring a revealing "Group portrait" of each author, California Sorcery offers a magic blend of untethered imagination and dazzling skill--a book of wondrous surprise and rare pleasure provided by some of the world's most brilliant storytellers. Welcome to the Group: Ray Bradbury; Richard Matheson; Harlan Ellison; Ray Russell; Charles Beaumont; George Clayton Johnson; Robert Bloch; John Tomerlin; Chad Oliver; Charles E. Fritch; William F. Nolan; and Jerry Sohl.

From the back cover: The only riches Texans had left after the Civil War were five million maverick longhorns and the brains, brawn and boldness to drive them north to where the money was. Now, Ralph Compton brings this violent and magnificent time to life in an extraordinary epic series based on the history blazing trail drives. THE CALIFORNIA TRAIL Gold fever had hit California, and suddenly, the land was full of hungry pioneers. For Gil and Van Austin, two Texas brothers, it meant the chance to sell well grazed longhorns after years of hard ranching and a treacherous cattle drive up through Mexico. The only trouble was that California was on the other side of a searing desert, swollen rivers, a barrage of Indian attacks, and a whole passel of outlaw trouble.
