From 1988 to 1997, The Scream Factory: The Magazine of Horrors Past, Present and Future provided an exhaustive and often irreverent overview of all aspects of horror – from fiction to film and beyond. It became a go-to reference for horror aficionados around the globe. Twenty years after the magazine ceased publication, editors Peter Enfantino, Robert Morrish, and John Scoleri have sifted through the contents of the magazine’s 20-issue run to assemble this epic collection.
The Best of The Scream Factory reprints more than 70 articles from the magazine’s golden age, covering such diverse topics as: the best horror novels of the ’80s; a viewer’s guide to Godzilla movies; horror in the pulps; the worst in horror; dark suspense fiction; the influence of The Night of the Living Dead on fiction and film; horror on old-time radio; sci-fi/horror hybrids; western horror; werewolf fiction; British horror fiction and films; Canadian horrors; and horror in the comics.
In addition to the nearly 600-page selection of “greatest hits,” the editors have penned a brand new 25,000 word introduction, diving deep into the sordid history of the magazine as well as the books published (and even a few unpublished!) under the Deadline Press imprint.
