Chilling Monster Tales
Entry updated 4 April 2017. Tagged: Publication.
Letter-size saddle-stapled Cinema Magazine printed on newsprint-quality paper. One issue only: August 1966. Published by MM Publishing Ltd from New York. No editor named.
Chilling Monster Tales consisted chiefly of uncredited summaries of classic Monster or Horror films including House of Frankenstein (1944) (see Frankenstein), Them! (1954) and The Day of the Triffids (1963), heavily illustrated with stills. An unusual feature was the use of red ink throughout much of the magazine. There was also some reprinted fiction including "Dracula's Guest" (in Dracula's Guest and Other Weird Stories coll 1914; vt Dracula's Curse 1968) by Bram Stoker, with an introduction by Sam Moskowitz; this was purportedly the story's first magazine publication.
