– 2 Pages
“After years of character acting on stage and in film, British thespian Roy Dotrice has suddenly found fame in a new television adaptation of the classic fantasy, Beauty and the Beast, Juanita Elefante-Gordon talks to the man who brings wit and wisdom to the role of Father.”

Richard Matheson – I Am Legend – 3 Pages
“As a writer, Richard Matheson has done it all.  His classic novels include The Shrinking Man and Hell House, and his screenplays have been produced by the likes of Steven Spielberg.  However, as FEAR’s Stanley Wiater discovered, this veteran writer is at odds with some of the things that have been done in the name of fantasy.”

Neil Gaiman – Cold Colours – 2 Pages
“Neil Gaiman has become a comic book writing legend in his own short lifetime with such supersellers as Black Orchid and The Sandman.  But here he serves notice that he is not a one medium man.  Steve McGinty reports.”

Ray Harryhausen – The Man, The Myths And The Models – 4 Pages
“His startling animation techniques brought the monsters out of the closet and onto the cinema screen.  Now Ray Harryhausen’s achievements are on show at London’s Museum of the Moving Image.  FEAR’s  Stan Nicholls went along for a personal tour of the exhibits, and talked to the man behind the models.”

J G Ballard – Memoirs For A Space Age – 2 Pages
“J G Ballard is one of the most highly acclaimed authors of our age.  In works spanning SF, fantasy, horror and reality he charts the course of our short histories, but portrays characters and situations that belong to all times and places.  In this, the first instalment of a rare two-part interview, he talks to David Pringle about the science, mysticism and politics behind his fictions.”

Richard Laymon – Keep The Campfires Burning – 2 Pages
“Horror is the forerunner of all types of fiction, according to author Richard Laymon.  Primitive tribes people gathered around camp fires to tell tales of evil spirits, carnivorous creatures and violent death.  Now the author of The Cellar, Flesh and the recently released Funhouse tosses another log onto the flames for FEAR’s David Whitehead.”

The Fear Factor:
Cannibal Films - One Man’s Meat
– 4 Pages
“Cannibal films have a surprisingly prolific history which dates back to the early days of silent cinema.  But today, fictional images of cannibalism are viewed with fear and loathing by the guardians of public decency.  At what point did the old-fashioned jungle movie turn into a serious threat to morality?  In the first of two articles, Julian Petley looks at the most controversial of all the sub-genres of the horror film.”

Revenge Of Billy The Kid - Where There’s Muck There’s Smoke
– 4 Pages
“Revenge of Billy the Kid has the lot – Satanic monsters, blighted love, corpses and dung heaps.  FEAR’s Patience Coster visited the MacDonald family’s farm to experience a day in the shoot of a new British independent movie.”
