Fiction Files:
Geoff Ryman – Fiction File 38 – 0.5 Pages
“Literary and challenging, Geoff Ryman has been described as one of the few originals working in SF.  Andy Oldfield fills in the details.”

Ellen Kushner – Fiction File 39 – 0.5 Pages

Maggie Greenwald – Fatal Secrets – 1 Page
“John Gilbert, a man who is never happier than when he’s exploring the seamy side of low-life sleaze, chats up a woman making her mark in a man’s world.”

Fear Factor:
Misery – Studies In Applied Misery – 2 Pages
“Humility and altruism are not the attributes you would expect to find in a Hollywood scriptwriter.  Nigel Floyd gives William Goldman a vehicle to show the world otherwise.”

“The Evil Dead are about to walk again.  Our very own soldier of fortune, JB Macabre, reports from field HQ and files an advance intelligence report… an interview with Sam Raimi no less.”

Omen IV – Bad Omens: Signs Of The Times – 5 Pages
“The Devil is alive and well and living in the USA.  Armaggedon is imminent according to Uncle Sam’s fundamentalist whacko contingent.  Well, if it’s the Antichrist they’re after, they need look no further than Steve Biodrowski’s report on the making of Omen IV.”

Graphic Novels – Graphic Detail – 3 Pages
“A rather more eclectic selection than usual as once again Warren Lapworth girds his loins, flexes his critical muscles and plunges into another heavy session of comic reviewing.”
