Mike Ashley


Explores the reemergence of the horror fiction magazine following the success of writers like Stephen King and Dean Koontz, but now the emphasis was as much on the horrors of scientific development as they were the supernatural. As a consequence many of these magazines, notably TWILIGHT ZONE, NIGHT CRAY and THE HORROR SHOW were arguably as much sf magazines as horror. In the wake of cyberpunk the more extreme magazines created splatterpunk.
