Author
    (April 5, 1917-September 23, 1994)
    Raised in Wisconsin
    Best known for his novel 'Psycho (1959)'
    Wrote 'The Opener of the Way (1945),' 'The Scarf (1947),' 'Kidnapper (1954),' 'Tales in a Jugular Vein (1965),' 'Fear Today, Gone Tomorrow (1971),' 'Strange Eons (1978),' 'Psycho II (1982),' 'Lost in Time and Space with Lefty Feep (1987),' 'Once Around the Bloch: An Unauthorized Autobiography (1993)' and 'The Early Fears (1994)'
    Screenwriter for 'Alfred Hitchcock Presents,' 'Star Trek,' 'Rod Serling's Night Gallery' and 'Tales from the Darkside'
    Despite a long, successful career, he never became a household name.
    He cracked a lot of corny jokes.
    He used some terrible puns in his titles ('Fear Today, Gone Tomorrow,' 'Once Around the Bloch,' etc.).
    He was divorced.
    He wrote the novelization for the wimpy sequel 'Psycho II.'
    He read a book per day.
    He liked to say: 'I have the heart of a small boy - I keep it at home in a drawer.'
    This quote is often wrongly attributed to Stephen King.
    As a teenager, his pen-pal was H. P. Lovecraft.
    Although they corresponded for ten years, they never met in person.
    His novel 'Psycho' (based on the serial killer Ed Gein) inspired one of the most successful films in history.
    He loved doing horror and sci-fi conventions.
