Harlan Ellison – Dangerous Visions
– 5 Pages
“He’s a pussycat in a bad-ass zoot suit, an enfant terrible, a ‘difficult’ writer, and his moth has made him more enemies than most.  For the first time in nearly two decades, the legendary fantasy and science fiction author Harlan Ellison takes time out to give a major interview.  Pete Crowther sharpens his pencil and his wits and sallies forth to meet the man ‘they’ love to hate.”

Fiction Files:
Daniel Weiss – Fiction File 12
– 0.5 Pages
“Is Unnatural Selection the most revolting book of the decade, or has the hype once again taken over from reality?  FEAR’s strong-stomached Liz Holliday grabs her sick bag and does lunch with controversial American author Daniel Weiss.”

Diane Duane – Fiction File 13 – 0.5 Pages
“Spock’s World was the first Star Trek hardcover, and it didn’t take long for this continuation of the word famous SF saga to hit the New York Times bestseller list and for fans to hail its author, Diane Duane, as a literary messiah.  In the midst of all the hysteria, FEAR’s Liz Holliday managed to keep her head and asked the scribe some tough conceptual questions about her novel.”

Zombie Holocaust – 5 Pages
“Since 1968, when George Romero changed the word by giving us The Night of The Living Dead, zombies have been the spare-part surgeons in hundreds of splatter films.  But Tom Savini, FX creator for the original is now directing a remake, and he prefers to think of his new zombies as realistic walking corpses rather than rotting meat mincers.  FEAR’s David Kuel travelled to Pennsylvania to find out just what else has changed down among the living dead men.”

Graphic Detail – 2 Pages
“Can he swing from a thread?  No, but Warren Lapworth is able and willing to give his views on a selection of comics and graphic novels.  Watch him fly...”
