On the Fringe for Thirty Years: A History of Horror in the British Small Press

Edited by David Sutton, Shadow Publishing 2000. 

Reviews the distinctive decades during which horror in the UK small press developed. In the 30 years since 1965, the independent presses and the small press 'empires' such as The British Fantasy Society and The Haunted Library receive a much  overdue appraisal by an editor and author who was in the thick of it. £3.50

ISBN 0953903206. Copies still available, please contact me.

Shadow: Fantasy Literature Review

Edited by David Sutton

I designed and edited Shadow from 1968-1974, publishing 21 issues in total. Originally a hand-duplicated fanzine, I moved to litho printing from issue 18. Two covers are shown here, artwork by Jim Pitts and Dave Fletcher.

Shadow featured in depth articles on all aspects of horror and fantasy fiction, author profiles, book reviews, fiction and artwork. My aim with the magazine was to publish knowledgeable articles on all aspects of the genre, along with reviews of new horror and fantasy books. As a small press magazine it provided the other side of the small press in the 70s in dealing with horror fiction rather than horror films and Science Fiction.
