A horror 'zine, it features some fiction and poetry but really shines in the area of non-fiction. Heavy contributions by practitioners in the genre. An interview with short story master Thomas Ligotti (Song Of A Dead Dreamer and Grimscribe) reveals his influences to include Bruno Schulz, E.M. Cioran, Thomas Bernhard. The section on Ligotti includes a story and an essay by Ligotti, a bibliography and two critical looks at his work. Cover artist Harry O. Morris is featured and also interviewed. Terrific art, good critical reviews, and articles entitled "Vampires: Why They Matter," all add up to a pretty good read.--John Stickney
