Martin Jones (ed.) – Bedabbled!: British Horror and Cult Cinema # 1 (B!, Feb. 2011)
Rik Rawling: image taken from Mumsy, Nanny, Sonny and Girly.
Martin Jones – Editorial
Martin Jones – Whatever Happened To Tony Chestnut. The very English Gothic of Mumsy, Nanny, Sonny and Girly.
Sean Crossey – It’s Only A Game: The atmospheric tale of demon worship, self-mutilation and murderous children that is Blood On Satan’s Claw
Julian Upton – Never Never Land: Social realism meets something like horror in Bloody Kids.
Johnny Mains – Further Tales Of Unease: interview with prolific tie-in novelist John Burke.
i’m currently reading through a low-res pdf proof copy and thought i’d best prepare you for the coming of Bedabbled!. Martin Jones’s new publication will appeal to our many British Horror film fiends, particularly those who, all these years later, still carry a torch for Vanessa ‘Girly’ Howard and the scary skull with the wandering eye from Blood On Satan’s Claw. The debut is a ‘Bloody kids’ special (#2 is Cult of Satan!) – and Martin writes in his introduction:
“The canny amongst you may have already guessed that Bedabbled! isn’t going to venture much further than, say, An American Werewolf In London in terms of years covered. You’d be right. Sorry, no Hellraiser, Dust Devil, etc. I can’t speak for other contributors, but it’s my intention to create a new mythology of British screen horror, and within these pages it’ll be done through what I consider to be the most interesting periods of film production this country ever encountered. Aside from the well-documented ‘big three’ (Hammer, Tigon, Amicus), there is a wealth of imaginative material to mine from countless movies (and TV productions) and the insane figureheads of this mag – Mumsy, Vampyres. Goodbye Gemini, Deep End, The Shout – will be featured in some form or another, alongside other works familiar and surprising.”
With the recent British Fantasy Journal howler fresh in mind, i’m not gonna attempt any kind of “review” until i know hard copies have made their way into the customers’ clutches, but i’m predicting a big future for this lively 32 pager. Our friend and colleague, Justin ‘Paperback Fanatic’ Marriott looks after the layout and print management duties, but he’s keen to stress that Bedabbled “is most definitely Martin’s baby” and as babies go, this one has more than a touch of the It’s Alive!‘s about it.
The magazine has no internet presence just yet, but you can order a copy from Martin from:
bedabbledAThotmail.co.uk (as ever, substitute the AT with an @)
Price is £3.50 post-paid UK/ £6.00 world-wide

News from Justin’s trash morgue bolt-hole, aka Fanatic HQ
Justin Marriott (ed.) – Paperback Fanatic #15 (July, 2010)
Is back from the printers and will be posted by Wednesday at the latest, so UK subscribers should have their new issue by next weekend. Overseas subscribers should allow 10 days for air-mail. Any problems, please do let me know.
Two new one-off publications from The Fanatic
I plan to issue two specials, both of which will be printed strictly to demand so I require you to lodge your interest. This means I can work out if demand makes them financially viable, and then to work out a final price/format etc. Details of the planned publications are below, but if you are interested I need an e-mail from you for each publication. Respond to this mail and place either “NEL” or “Pennington” in the subject. Responses required by the end of July. If you want both, I require two separate mails.
By responding you are not 100% committing to purchasing the publications, but you are saying “If the price is right, the content looks good and my finances haven’t drastically changed by the time of publication, I have every intention of paying for one.” As a ball park, I would expect both publications to be in the region of 90 pages, A5, perfect-bound (i.e. with a spine), 50% full colour, and costing in the region of £7 post-paid in the UK, and $15 international. (I’m hoping I can offer them cheaper, or include more colour for the same price- it all comes down to demand)
Bruce Pennington Special
Giant interview with the master fantasy artist, covering every aspect of his career The stories behind his iconic covers for Stranger in a Strange Land and Dune. Rare documents and photos supplied by the artist. A checklist of every single one of his paperback covers. At least 150 reproductions of his art and covers, with most in colour.
The Visual Guide to New English Library
A lavishly illustrated guide to the legendary publishing company. Key genres in the 1970s paperback industry are given a chapter each.
Including – horror, science fiction, sleaze, historical adventure, crime, youth cults, slavers and the MEWS imprint. Each chapter contains an overview of the genre, notable titles and authors.
Full checklists including pseudonyms and artists.
At least 150 reproductions of covers, with many in colour.
I appreciate your ongoing support.
The new issue literally dropped through the door as i was formatting the above. Presented in a wraparound of Kane covers, this typically eclectic issue features an overview of Guy N. Smith’s extracurricular horror work for Hamlyn, Arrow, Pitakus, Grafton & Co: an interview with Warren Murphy, co-author of not very laid back mens adventure series The Destroyer: Rob Matthews on Fu Manchu in Pyramid (Stephen Sennitt also devotes his now regular column to Rohmer). Holger Haase on ‘Paul Kenyon’s sexy spy series The Baroness: Justin’s overview of Karl E. Wagner’s immortal acid goth sword & sorcery legend (who i never really got on with!); plus the usual lively exchange of information and opinion in the mighty Fanatic Thoughts. seems to me #15 boasts the most color pages yet?
