About this Item: Golkonda Verlag, Germany, 2012. Paperback. Condition: New. 1. Aufl.. Language: German. Brand new Book. Die junge Mary Crane soll für ihren Chef, einem unsympathischen Immobilienmakler, 40.000 Dollar auf die Bank bringen und beschließt stattdessen, in einem anderen Bundesstaat ein neues Leben anzufangen. Auf dem Weg in das kleine Städtchen Fairvale, wo ihr Verlobter wohnt, verfährt sie sich jedoch, sodass sie sich gezwungen sieht, in einem abgelegenen Motel zu übernachten. An der Rezeption begrüßt sie ein etwas linkischer Mann mittleren Alters. Sein Name ist Norman Bates.Psycho erschien erstmals 1959 und wurde knapp ein Jahr später von Alfred Hitchcock kongenial verfilmt. Der Roman wurde mit dem 'Edgar Allan Poe Special Award' ausgezeichnet und sein Autor über Nacht weltberühmt. Die vorliegende Neuübersetzung stellt unter Beweis, dass dieses Highlight des psychologischen Horror-Thrillers auch im 21. Jahrhundert noch unübertroffen ist. Seller Inventory # LIB9783942396288

About this Item: Simon and Schuster, New York, 1959. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. FIRST EDITION of Bloch's masterpiece, the basis for the classic Alfred Hitchcock film. "There was a murder case in a small Wisconsin town near the one where I lived -- I had no details concerning it at the time, but I knew that it involved a middle-aged man who murdered several women. Realizing how much gossip there is in a small town and how neighbors tend to pry into every else's affairs, I wondered just what kind of man, and what circumstances, might be involved in such a crime without anyone suspecting, working from these questions, I came up with the plot of PSYCHO. Years later I learned that I'd come pretty close to the actual situation, as brought out after investigations were completed -- except that the actual murderer was also a cannibal, and even more disturbed than my imaginary character" (Robert Bloch). New York: Simon and Schuster, 1959. Octavo, original half-cloth, original dust jacket. Browning to paper as always (poor paper stock); just a hint of edgewear to beautiful dust jacket. An outstanding copy. $2800. Seller Inventory # 37

About this Item: Simon & Schuster, New York, 1959. Condition: about Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First edition. A fantastic inscription from Bloch "For Alvin Germeshausen - This fragment of autobiography with much affection - Robert Bloch." Sir Alvin Germeshausen inducted Bloch into the Praed Street Irregulars, a society celebrating August Derleth's "Solar Pons" series. Germeshausen was a well known figure around the Hollywood art and literature scene. Book just about Fine due to browning of the pages (as usual). In a dust jacket with small chips and tears at the extremities and an old tape repair on the verso. The small defects to the jacket far outweighed in our estimation by the fantastic association and inscription from the author."Psycho" was inspired by the actual serial killer Ed Gein, who ended up being arrested in Wisconsin, near where Bloch was living. The book is famous for Bloch's focus on the inner psychology of the character to create horror as opposed to relying on supernatural tropes. According to Harlan Ellison, Bloch "was surely on a level with Poe" and "set the tone for the modern dark fantasy."Psycho" was adapted into a film by Alfred Hitchcock in 1960 after the book was brought to his attention through his assistant. "Psycho" is considered one of the greatest of his films - and by extension one of the greatest films of all time. Anthony Perkins, Janet Leigh and Hitchcock would all receive Academy Award nominations and "Psycho" would go on to influence countless others both in and out of the horror genre. The film was declared aesthetically significant by the Library of Congress and marked for preservation in 1992. "Now, in his sixth suspense novel, Psycho, he is more chillingly effective than any writer might reasonably be expected to be."
