'Questar' magazine August 1980: interview with Robert Bloch

While the bulk of the August 1980 issue (which actually was on newsstands in late June) of Questar magazine was devoted to the film The Empire Strikes Back, there also appeared an interview with writer Robert Bloch. I've posted it below.

Bloch had some interesting observations on writing for a living during the depths of the Great Depression; the prose styles of the New Wave movement; the lack of critical applause for Bloch's work; and the burden that comes with being best known as the author of the novel Psycho.
