If all goes according to plan, the next issue of The Dark Side — due out on 29 March — will include a lengthy feature I’ve put together on the new drama-documentary Borley Rectory, directed by Ashley Thorpe and starring Jonathan Rigby as the notorious ghost hunter Harry Price. I interviewed them both for this piece, and there are also quotes from co-star Reece Shearsmith.
Unfortunately, work on this article coincided with my friend Chrissie and myself having to make several stressful trips to the local veterinary surgery with her elderly dog, Fred. Hours after I e-mailed the text to my editor, we walked Fred to see the vet one final time.

I guess the first appearance of Chrissie’s and my comic strip ‘The Lighter Side’ didn’t prompt readers to march towards the Dark Side offices waving burning torches like a scene from the 1930s horror movies we lampooned, because the January issue features our second collaboration, this time a nod to a more recent British classic.
As previously mentioned, you can see more of Chrissie’s work at her own website, Chez Chrissie, and support her webcomics via Patreon.
It’s still early days, so any support from Dark Side readers is very welcome. You can contact the editor, Allan Bryce, via firstname.lastname@example.org.

Didn’t pick up the November issue of Britain’s longest-running horror magazine, The Dark Side? In that case, you’ll have missed the first instalment of what could become a regular comic strip if we can just persuade editor Allan Bryce he has room.
The artwork’s by my regular collaborator Chrissie Harper (you can see more recent illustrations at her own website, Chez Chrissie, where you can also support Chrissie’s webcomics via her Patreon page). The idea is to lampoon a different horror or science fiction movie each time, and we’ll be concentrating on older films because too many of the more recent releases are already laughable without any input from us.
Anyway, if you like this debut effort, particularly if you’re a regular Dark Side reader, please let Allan know via email@example.com.
