The excellent movie zine, available through Amazon, has a 20-page article on when animals attack pulp novels in the latest issue. Written by horror illustrator Stephen Bissette, it focuses on Eat Them Alive, quoting a chunk from the Vault (with credits) and lauding a line from, I think, Dem. "Bring on the lampreys!"
So Dem is now being quoted by the legendary artist behind Swamp Thing, Tyrant and Taboo.
It won't be long before rabid fans are passing print outs of the Vault under toilet doors to a bethroned Dem for signing at the London Book Fair in October (legend has it, this did happen to Alan Moore)
Not sure about that but notice issue includes, amongst much else, a piece on "Richard Mansfield’s newest shadow puppet short, THE STORY OF A DISAPPEARANCE AND AN APPEARANCE"
Thanks for the tip off, Mr. Fanatic.
From the first, I set myself against "literature"; the story was the thing, and no amount of style could persuade me to select a story that lacked genuine, unadulterated horror. For those who wanted something high-brow there was plenty.
