Fantasy and horror author, pal of Philip K. Dick and Tim Powers. Blaylock's characters are often aimless dreamers who stumble into the midst of a supernatural struggle between good and evil conducted by otherwise ordinary folks who live just down the street. His works include The Paper Grail, All The Bells On Earth, and The Last Coin.

(He's also done more traditional fantasy stuff, but I'm afraid I haven't read any of it.)
