Cover Preview

Pulp Horror No. 7 coverJustin Marriott publishes a whole line of zines about paperbacks and series under his Paperback Fanatic banner. He shared news of what’s coming in the second half of the year for the News Digest section of the June 2018 edition of TDE, including a cover preview of The Sleazy Reader No. 8. A day or two after our deadline, he shared this great cover of Pulp Horror No. 7, with art by Rik Rawling of the mummy. The issue is coming this summer.

THREE NEW TITLES AVAILABLE THROUGH AMAZON NOW

The Paperback Fanatic 39
Now available through Amazon UK, Europe and US. Although the back cover states it’s issue 37, because I am an imbecile, it’s definitely issue 39! 100 pages, all colour, ALL NEW, an eclectic mix of articles and contributors.

Pulp Horror 5
An abridged reprint of the out-of-print issue designed as a tester for Amazon and for those that might want to try the title – DO NOT ORDER IF YOU ALREADY OWN AN ORIGINAL COPY

Pulp Horror 6
An abridged reprint of the out-of-print issue designed as a tester for Amazon and for those that might want to try the title – DO NOT ORDER IF YOU ALREADY OWN AN ORIGINAL COPY

TWO NEW TITLES FOR FEBRUARY

The Sleazy Reader 7
A reprint of the drugs and biker material from issue 35 of The Fanatic designed for the new audience available through Amazon, DO NOT ORDER IF YOU ALREADY OWN AN ORIGINAL COPY OF 35 OF THE FANATIC

PLANNED FOR SPRING

Hot Lead
In collaboration with Paul Bishop, I will finally publish a zine dedicated to vintage western paperbacks. Yee-haw!

Men of Violence 2
A reprint of the issue dedicated to Manor Books and their men’s adventure paperbacks. I expect this to be very different to the original, and in colour.

Monster Media (not sure about the title, but it’ll do the job for now…)
A zine dedicated to monster mags, but casting the net more widely than Famous Monsters to take in some real obscurities and even fanzines
