    I must say that Chris, at the very least, is a man of his word-I received the free issue he promised today.
    Will post some thoughts once I actually have time to read it.

    I sent an e-mail for the issue as well, as I have been wanting to check out all the various horror mags, and thought this would be a good opportunity to start with Fangoria. Unfortunately he didn't reply to my e-mail... Maybe the offer was only for US citizens!?

    Actually I received my copy and I'm in Mississauga. Chris told me there was a fangoria office in Oakville so I'm sure you will get it. I would email him again if you don't receive it in the next little while.

    He sent me an e-mail back this time and said he will be sending me the issue.

    And it is the same guy that runs the Bloor Cinema showings. Seems like a nice guy. When the MBV viewing got canceled due to the black out, he hooked me up with a free showing on top of the reshowing of MBV, and made sure I got my stuff signed.

    Got my free issue and it wasn't bad. Sure the articles were a little short but Fangoria is never gonna be another Rue Morgue. It has always been Horror 101 and Rue Morgue is more like an advanced class. And that is not a bad thing. Fango got me hooked when I was a teen and I will always be thankful.
    Alexander seemed nice in his return email to me. No one comes off good in an internet pissing contest. I just hope in the words of the great poet Rodney King we can now just all get along. We all love this shit. In fact, we love it so much we argue about it constantly. Thats part of the fun. But in the end, we are more alike than different. We love our fake blood and sadly now mostly fake tits.
    And in the end, isn't that more important than one shitty cover?

    I believe the offer expired. I emailed him a couple of weeks ago and never heard back.

    I just received one on Friday, and have no complaints about anything I've seen so far.

    I received the issue in the mail, thanks Chris! I have no problem with what I've read of it so far, I actually really like the writing and layout of it all, although I haven't checked out other horror issues to compare it to. That being said, I still think $9 or whatever it is an issue is a little too expensive. Especially when they days you can get a 200 page hardcover book on Amazon for the same price.
