WORLD OF HORROR . . . FOR ONLY 30p
ONCE UPON A SLIME, THERE WAS A BRITISH MONSTER MAGAZINE CALLED "WORLD OF HORROR". Existing for only about a year, "WORLD OF HORROR" lasted sadly just 9 issues from 1974-1975. It was a fun little mag whose limited run, I suppose, was due it being published during the tail-end of the "horror boom" which had been going since the late 1950's -- and was only awaiting the release of STAR WARS in 1977 to blow horror off the entertainment map for several years. Being British, "WORLD OF HORROR" also included frequent coverage of DOCTOR WHO and his gallery of monsters; a show which was completely unknown over here in the States at that time. Over the next few days, I thought it would be fun to post some palpitatin' pages from several issues of "WORLD OF HORROR" for your petrified perusal! Today, I thought I'd begin with a horror quiz printed in one of the issues . . . the answers to the quiz will appear at the bottom of this post. Don't peek!!!
