MONSTER! #30 is the better part of 164 pages thick, and just as chock-a-block with monstrous goodness as ever. As for the contents, it's the usual unusual mash-up of more modern and vintage monster material; a tasty smorgasbord/cornucopia of the old, the new and the not-quite-so-old-or-new. As per our hunky three-eyed cover boy (the title critter from his newest movie TRICLOPS!), we've got lashings of loving reportage on the DIY-with-TLC creature features of regional American filmmaker Brett Piper, one of whose many specialties in practical special effects is stop-motion animation (forget CGI!). In addition, we have an in-depth essay on the early works of David Cronenberg, with an especial focus on his still-disturbingly-effective 1979 "monster kid" shocker THE BROOD. Also in this issue, by way of a moving and touching Special Tribute/Remembrance by someone who knew him, we pay our last respects to the much-loved and sadly recently late Vince Rotolo, "King of the Monster Podcasters" and a MonsterBash regular who shall be sorely missed. We've also got the second and final part of our feature article "Bathed in Blood", covering the cinematic excesses of notorious vampiristic aristocrat Countess Elizabeth Báthory. In addition to all this, we've got oodles of creature feature reviews and eye-catching original artwork besides. Just for the record, our roster of talent for MONSTER! #30 is: Stephen D. Sullivan, Eric Messina, Michael Hauss, Dennis Capicik, Christos Mouroukis, Stephen R. Bissette, C. Michael Hall, Andy Ross, Martín Núñez, Kinshuk Gaur, Salvatore Tarantola, Tony Strauss, Brian Harris, Steve Fenton, and Tim Paxton. Detailed video availability (most of it correct, as per usual, we hope!) rounds things out. Enjoy!

I CANNOT, YET I MUST is the amazing story of ROBOT MONSTER, the legendary 1953 gorilla-wearing-a-diving-helmet no-budget epic that sums up an entire era of film history. Determined to crack Hollywood and fully aware of what he was up against, director Phil Tucker crafted a profitable 3-D feature with very little money and very much ingenuity. Fascinating, surreal, hilarious and an incredible testament to getting the job done even when it is impossible, ROBOT MONSTER is now documented in detail. From the ballyhoo of producer Al Zimbalist to the eccentric life of writer Wyott Ordung, from Phil Tucker's previously unpublished memories to the significantly different script, I CANNOT, YET I MUST is the book that finally explores ROBOT MONSTER!

Ten creepy monsters met ’neath a gnarled pine. One blew away, And then there were nine. And so the countdown begins . . . A mummy, a witch, a ghost, a werewolf, a vampire, and others all gather, but one by one their crowd diminishes. At last there is only one creepy monster left. But what kind of monster is it? Squeals of laughter are sure to accompany the reading of this book from bestselling illustrator Carey F. Armstrong-Ellis, as 10 creepy monsters set out for fun. Praise for Ten Creepy Monsters "Armstrong-Ellis injects just the right amount of humor into her portrayals of the ghoulish bunch, keeping the tone appropriately light." —Kirkus Reviews "Generously detailed acrylics provide a touch of nefarious charm, while a tender surprise ending should gratify trick-or-treaters." —Publishers Weekly "Fun for Halloween or for counting anytime." —School Library Journal "Armstrong-Ellis’ textured images, full of spooky spirit and clever detail, add to the fun. A happy Halloween outing." —Booklist "With rich language and a delightfully dark nighttime palette, this pleasing rhyme begs to be acted out or performed with puppets. The illustrations are appropriately ghoulish." —BookPage "A perfect Halloween read-aloud but a great way to relieve malaise on any day, this picture book also helps young readers learn to count as the monsters fall by the wayside in gruesome fashion." —Reading Today Online "Author/artist Carey F. Armstrong-Ellis clearly had fun crafting this silly, lighthearted Halloween tale of monsters who disappear…" —The Seattle Times "Carey F. Armstrong-Ellis delivers a delightful rhyming lesson in subtraction." —USA Today

Everyone knows about the Ramsays - even those who have never watched a Ramsay film. But who were they really? Where did they come from? Why did they make the films they did? And how? How, really, did they pull it off? In India, the Ramsay name remains synonymous with horror movies. Still, all these decades later. Don't Disturb the Dead is the story of their cinema, their methods and madnesses, the people and the processes, arguments and agreements, about horror cinema as a business model, and more. It is also an open-minded and affectionate ode to the 'disreputable' Ramsay films, and to a family that was once a genre in itself, one whose contribution to cinema deserves to be recognized.
