Voyage of the Astrals By Francis T Laney; Correspondence Piece By Bob ( Wilson ) Tucker; The After Life By Oliver E Saari; The Mirror By Nils Frome; -----The really great thing about this fanzine is the front cover by Pat Patterson. It illustrates a man in a graveyard in the DEAD of NIGHT digging up the graves of Les Croutch, Phil Rasch and Robert Bloch. The really unique thing about this is that I had Robert Bloch sign his gravestone. I met Mr Bloch at a convention in London, Ontario and being the incredibly gracious man that he was, he signed the gravestone and even recognized the humour in doing so. (I'm not 100% sure but my feeling is that the figure rising out of Bloch's grave is actually a caricature of Mr Bloch). At the most, there were only 125 copies of this fanzine printed ----who knows how many survive today. I would bet that this is the only copy with a signed gravestone tho' ---a real unique item. Bloch was a contemporary of H P Lovecraft, had books and stories published by Arkham House, and is most famous for his book, Psycho, made into a classic Alfred Hitchcock movie with Anthony Perkins as the ultimate in creepiness, Norman Bates---, there is no specific contribution from Bloch in this issue , any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo,
