  • Lots of words about M-G-M's 1960s 'Midwich Cuckoos' films due out in May

    Due out in May

    I'm not going to make any grand statements about this publication - two years' work and lots and lots of research - it is what it is.

    I would just like to thank everyone who helped with the project and hope that the finished work reflects their generosity.

    This is a low resolution copy of the cover.

            No - nearer the publication date there will be details on the 'Little Shoppe of Horrors" site (US and international) and "Hemlock Books" site (UK).

            And anyone who wants one in New Zealand - they can send me a P.M.

              For those who remember the original British screening I edited the cover slightly - this is not an official version - apologies to Steve Karchin, the original artist

                  Still proof reading (March deadline) - aiming for May publication - Hemlock books will probably hold off taking orders until we are actually ready to press.

                  It's taken me 6 hours to proof read the main article - I've still got to re-visit the side-bars - biographies - interviews etc. - so I'll reiterate - there are a lot of words!

                    Due to the amount of text we have decided to publish the 'Children of the Damned' half of the research in LSoH #43 (October Issue ) - were were looking at having to drop some important text and there being no room for illustrations. Spreading the article over two issues gives the material room to breath.

                        The magazine can now be ordered direct from the publishers.

                        Details of other distributors should be available within the week.

                          I'm told that the magazine be finished by the weekend - so there should be some US reviews available on-line by next week.

                          Once the magazines have been collected from the printer orders from Hemlock Books will open - but the magazines still need to be shipped to London from the US.

                          http://www.hemlockbooks.co.uk/Shop/category/4

                          UK complimentary copies will be shipped from within the UK - so it may well be the end of the month before they appear on doormats.
