Stephen Haffner from Haffner Press reminds us that April 5, 2017 will be the 100th birthday of Robert Bloch and invites us to celebrate it by posting about various Bloch works. Anyone who would like to post a piece on my blog on the 5th is very welcome.

I always liked STRAIT-JACKET and THE NIGHT WALKER (both William Castle movies), Joan Crawford and Barbera Stanwyck were so good in those films.

They were made to make that kind of movie as they got older.

I'll post a review of a Robert Bloch book on my blog April 5. Thanks for the heads up!

Favorite quote:

“I have the heart of a small boy. I keep it in a jar on my desk.”
―Robert Bloch

Though Crawford was in charge of what she was doing...the Pepsi "[copulate] yourself" money certainly didn't hurt.
