He looks like his own prototype for Norman Bates.

It was an autobiography. 🤔

Funny you say that. Around the late 40s, he published a novel by the name of 'The Scarf'. It's about a writer who moonlights as a serial killer who strangles his victims with a scarf. Do check it out! It has the seeds for what became Psycho.

If they'd cast him to play Norman Bates there'd be no mystery.

Yeah, that guy did it.

Jeez I really don’t miss typewriters. Absolutely hated doing papers on the those things. I was correcting more than writing. Word Processors were my salvation

Just for an interesting conversation… you notice how novels have ballooned in size since typewriters went away? I feel like tracing the Harry Potter books is an illustration of this. Something like 200 pages for the first one in the early 90s to 800 by the end. (Too lazy to actually look up page counts).

Hell of a good short story writer.

Hell of a writer, aside from Psycho.


Horrorlover656 OP t1_j22jxwk wrote

Definitely underrated! If you can, read The Scarf(basically where the seeds of Psycho came from). It's about a post world war ii serial killer who strangles his victims with a scarf and is a writer by daytime.

Then: what kind of person comes up with a character like that?

Now: ah yeah that makes total sense


PepeMoli t1_j2173yd wrote

He kind of reminds me of Coraline's dad


burrbro235 t1_j217qei wrote

Is he related to Nigel Bloch?


laser_red t1_j221tbw wrote

Name sounded familiar, had to look it up. He wrote some episodes of Star Trek, TOS.
