Read full description of the books The Scarf:From the dustjacket: Fame had come early to Daniel Morley. At 27 he was a famous novelist - attractive, intelligent, and intuitive.People liked him at sight - especially women - and to the world at large he was a man much to be envied. But deep inside himself lurked a frightful and never to be revealed secret which made his life a nightmare. For Daniel Morley knew that he was a pathological murderer who had already struck twice, neatly and undetectably, and that he might do so again... Here in a gripping, nerve shattering story is the portrait of a man who was quite normal except for a few minutes of his entire adult life. What occurred during those crucial ten minutes? And what influence did the red scarf have on his destiny?
Read information about the authorRobert Albert Bloch was a prolific American writer. He was the son of Raphael "Ray" Bloch (1884, Chicago-1952, Chicago), a bank cashier, and his wife Stella Loeb (1880, Attica, Indiana-1944, Milwaukee, WI), a social worker, both of German-Jewish descent.
Bloch wrote hundreds of short stories and over twenty novels, usually crime fiction, science fiction, and, perhaps most influentially, horror fiction (Psycho). He was one of the youngest members of the Lovecraft Circle; Lovecraft was Bloch's mentor and one of the first to seriously encourage his talent.
He was a contributor to pulp magazines such as Weird Tales in his early career, and was also a prolific screenwriter. He was the recipient of the Hugo Award (for his story "That Hell-Bound Train"), the Bram Stoker Award, and the World Fantasy Award. He served a term as president of the Mystery Writers of America.
Robert Bloch was also a major contributor to science fiction fanzines and fandom in general. In the 1940s, he created the humorous character Lefty Feep in a story for Fantastic Adventures. He also worked for a time in local vaudeville, and tried to break into writing for nationally-known performers. He was a good friend of the science fiction writer Stanley G. Weinbaum. In the 1960's, he wrote 3 stories for Star Trek.
