The 190th issue of UK horror magazine The Dark Side is due out on 15 February, and features my interview with actress Jenny Hanley. We discuss her appearances in such films as Scars of Dracula, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, The Flesh and Blood Show and Soft Beds, Hard Battles, as well as her work as a presenter on Magpie.

Touch wood, the following issue will include my interview with Ashley Thorpe, director of the new ghost movie Borley Rectory. I’m also working on a profile of the late Brian W Aldiss for its sister magazine Infinity.
