ROBERT ALBERT BLOCH
Hugo-winning horror author Robert Bloch wrote and signed this statement - "we can live in peace if we learn the truth about ourselves" - on his personalized stationery in 1991.
Autograph manuscript signed "Robert Bloch/Dec. 4, 1991" in blue ink. 1 page, 6x7, on Bloch's personalized stationery. In full: "Yes, we can live in peace if we learn the truth about ourselves. And that truth is -- We are not separate races, not separate nations, not separate faiths - we are one family. once we recognize similarities instead of differences, peace will be ours." Prolific American author Bloch (1917-1994) corresponded with horror pioneer H. P. Lovecraft in his teens, and his early stories were inspired by, and often extensions of, Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos. He's probably best known as the author of the Edgar Award-winning 1959 psychological horror novel Psycho, which was adapted by Alfred Hitchcock into his classic 1960 movie of the same name. But his writing career stretches back to 1934, when he sold his first story Lilies to Marvel Tales in 1934, and his works continue to be published today. Bloch won the Hugo Award for his 1958 story That Hell-Bound Train as well as the Bram Stoker Award and the World Fantasy Award. He also has original material or writing credits for over 40 movies and TV shows between 1960 and 1998, including Thriller (1960-1962), Alfred Hitchcock Presents (1960-1962 and 1986), The Alfred Hitchcock Hour (1962-1965), Star Trek (1966-1967), Journey into the Unknown (1968-1969), Tales from the Darkside (1984-1987) and Monsters (1988-1989). Lightly creased. Ink transfer (does not touch signature or statement). Folded in half and unfolded. Otherwise in fine condition.
