    Robert Bloch Signed Typed Manuscript: The Chamber of Horrors. This lot includes the typed manuscript for The Chamber of Horrors, as well as a three-page story line for the idea. This is the document that features the signature of Bloch. It is signed, "Robert Bloch '82" on the top of the page. Bloch is the mastermind who brought us over 200 stories and 22 novels including, Psycho, which was the basis for Alfred Hitchcock's blockbuster. This manuscript contains a wonderful story about five people who meet their fate at the British amusement park, "Blackpool."
    The manuscript and story description are in Fine condition, with no major flaws. The signature is in bold, dark red ink and is very legible and clear. After all, this lot is a boy's best friend! Just ask Norman. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
