Robert Albert Bloch (April 5 1917 - September 23 1994) was a prolific author in the science fiction, horror fiction, and pulp fiction genres, and screenwriter. He was the recipient of the Hugo Award, the Bram Stoker Award, and the World Fantasy Award.
He was a friend and correspondent with H. P. Lovecraft, and was the author of a number of stories that were set in, and extended, the world of the Cthulhu Mythos. Bloch even appears, thinly disguised, as the character "Robert Blake" in Lovecraft's story The Haunter of the Dark.
His autobiography entitled Once Around the Bloch (ISBN 0-312-85373-4) was published in 1993.
