Unearthing the History of Fangoria: Schlockmania on Issue #7

If you've been enjoying the Starlog Project here on this blog, but you like your genre magazines a little more ... wet, then you should check out Don Guarisco's ongoing exploration of the early issues of Fangoria, Starlog's unruly younger brother.

Don's just posted his writeup for Fango issue #7, which was something of a turning point for the horror film magazine. As then-editor "Uncle Bob" Martin notes in a comment he posted to the article, it was the first issue of the magazine to actually make money. It was also the issue (if you ask me) where Fango's horror specialization started to gel.

Read Don's description of the issue, and Uncle Bob's additional background info, for more.
