Anne Rice – The Rice Papers
– 4 Pages
“Split personalities have never been so successful.  Anne Rice, author of the Vampire Chronicles and Rameses The Damned, shares her life with alter-egos who are also busy producing subtly different novels and erotica.  FEAR's Stanley Wiater had an audience with the Queen of the Pseudonym to find out all about passion, pornography and idiot editors.”

Wes Craven – The Body Electric – 5 Pages
“Wes Craven, creator of Freddy Krueger, sings the praises of his latest horror film anti-hero, television repair man and mass-murderer Horace Pinker, to FEAR’s Mark Westerby.”

Whitley Strieber – Kingdom Of The Soul – 2 Pages
“Whether he’s a messiah or a maverick, Whitley Strieber believes that an alien culture is seeking to bridge the awareness gap between the real and the illusory.  In Majestic, his latest book, he argues that world governments may already hold information about meetings which have taken place but, he tells FEAR’s John Gilbert, the results may be more wide-reaching than those the authorities fear.”

Peter Straub – Shadows – 2 Pages
“The horror genre has long relinquished its vice-like grip on American author Peter Straub.  Novels such as Ghost Story, Shadowland and Floating Dragon have recently given way to Koko, a thriller, and his latest hardback, Mystery; but he is still interested in chilling readers’ bones and, as he tells J B Macabre, this can be achieve beyond genre boundaries.”

The Fear Factor:
Roman Polanski – Raising The Very Devil
– 3 Pages
“An entire generation has forgotten the debt modern horror films owe to Roman Polanski, the man who dragged the beast from the depths of collective unconsciousness to the surface where it has festered successfully ever since.  FEAR’s Roger Kean puts the record straight.”

Comics & Graphic Novels - Graphic Detail – 2 Pages
“Warren Lapworth begins a quest through comics and graphic novels...”

Movie Mainline:
Society - Paranoia
– 5 Pages
“Orgies, incest and social injustice: Society is a horror film more jam-packed with messages than a dozen mainstream movies.  Director Brian Yuzna unravels just a few of them for FEAR’s John Gilbert.”
