Burgess, Reference Guide to Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror 178. This unique association copy is inscribed and dated in the year of publication to Edward Wood by the author, Evertt F. Bleiler, on front free endpaper. Edward Davis "Ed" Wood, Jr. (October 10, 1924 - December 10, 1978) was an American screenwriter, director, producer, actor, author, and film editor. In the 1950s, Wood made a number of low-budget science-fiction, horror, and cowboy genre films, intercutting stock footage. In the 1960s and 1970s, he made sexploitation movies and wrote over 80 pulp-crime, horror, and sex novels. In 1980 he was posthumously awarded a Golden Turkey Award as Worst Director of All Time, renewing public interest in his work. Wood's unsuccessful career and camp approach has earned him and his films a cult following.--Wikipedia Among Edward Woods notable movies: Plan 9 from Outer Space (1959), Jail Bait (1954), Bride of the Monster (1955), and Glen or Glenda (1953). Wood's legacy and cult following lives on with, for example, the University of Southern California holding an annual "Ed Wood Film Festival" for which students are charged with writing, filming, and editing an Ed Wood-esque short film based on a predetermined theme. His movies has been spoofed on Mystery Theater 3000 and many have been remade as pornographic movies. Additionally, many of his bizarre transvestite-themed sex novels have been republished.--bio. 2013 A+E Networks. A most important association copy being signed by the author to Ed Wood.
