Thank you for March 2016. All of you. It was my biggest month ever since writing for people other than myself, with an estimated 100,000 copies of publications with content I'd written being released during the month (plus thousands of web visits). It was both humbling and a little surreal. Knowing that so many people have been so kind as to check out things I've written is an incredible feeling for a socially inept dreamer like me.
Here's what came out through March 2016 that I was lucky enough to grace the pages of:
Featuring my latest VHS ATE MY BRAIN column, continuing the VHS love which began in my book of the same name.
As well as the usual VHS nostalgia, the films I talk about this issue are ELVES, THE KINDRED, MICROWAVE MASSACRE and NECROPOLIS. Plenty of magnetic mayhem to sink your fangs into – available in print at HMV and Fopp or as a digital edition!
DOCTOR WHO ADVENTURES 12
A very proud moment indeed for me as a Doctor Who fan since 1988 was the arrival of DOCTOR WHO ADVENTURES 12, which contained my Paternoster Gang story 'The Case Of The Curious Fugitive'. What a pleasure it was to write!
I hope I can return to the pages of DWA one day soon.
POWERPLAY ROCK AND METAL MAGAZINE 185
The latest issue of Powerplay contains an interview I did with Metal Church about their superb new album, the vintage metal blast that is 'XI', along with a number of album reviews.
Metal Church were an early favourite of mine when I first got into rock and metal, so the interview was a blast to do. It's a damn fine issue, and the Metal Church piece is in very good company indeed!
The new issue of Femforce became available to order at the end of the month, and it promises to be a heck of a read for fans old and new.
My contribution in this new issue is 'The Final Days Of Sirius Quinn', a story starring the jungle adventurer/superhero giantess Tara! Pencilled by Daniel Gorman with inks by Scott Shriver, it's an old-school romp inspired by the b-movies of yesteryear. Once again, AC have been so much fun to work with!
I was also lucky enough to get to interview scream queen/actor/writer/director/Vlogger Jessica Cameron for HorrorNews.net, during which we talked horror movies, acting, film production, life and her movies TRUTH OR DARE and MANIA.
After 8 years of interviewing musicians, this was a fascinating change and a pleasure to do. You can find the full interview here.
The coming months will see more varied releases to come, but I'll talk about those another time. Right now I just wanted to say a massive THANK YOU for my biggest and most exciting month ever!
