The BBC, in the United Kingdom, showed three/6 part serials
based on the the British Experimental Rocket Group, lead by
Prof. Bernard Quatermass, from 1953 to 1959 (written by Nigel Kneale).
Hammer films would make film versions of the first two (QUATERMASS
XPERIMENT/THE CREEPING UNKNOWN and QUATERMASS 2/ENEMY
FROM SPACE) in the 1950s. But it would be 1967 before they made their classic movie
version of QUATERMASS AND THE PIT.

This is gonna be great!  I'm especially looking forward to Meikle's article, but it's a whole smorgasbord of good stuff.

Are you still planning to at some point write a Zine History article on LSoH itself?

Well, "Little Shoppe of Horrors" isn't dead yet. And the 'zine histories I've done are
for mags no longer published. My plan is to re-write/expand on the history I did
for Gary Svehla's issue #79 of MIDNIGHT MARQUEE.

I still have a huge addition to Calvin T. Beck/CASTLE OF FRANKENSTEIN I need to
publish. There is a "chance" in this issue, but we've got so many illos for Marie Devereux
and QATP that there might not be room. Still planning on MONSTER TIMES and Raymond
Young's & Derek Jensen's zines (THE MAGICK THEATRE/THE MAGIC THEATER and
CHILDREN OF THE NIGHT)

NEVER TAKE SWEETS FROM A STRANGER(uk)/ NEVER TAKE
CANDY FROM A STRANGER (usa) is a very tough films to sit through.
Hammer probably never did anything more affecting or powerful. That
it did not do well, financially, is no fault of the film but of a film company -
Columbia - who did not know how to advertise it. And were eventually shut
down by American moral forces.

Looks sensational. As always. But this time you're actually giving the LSoH business to a great and favorite film. QUATERMASS AND THE PIT. 

Marvelous movie, marvelous magazine, perfect combination. Can't wait.

I certainly didn't mean to imply otherwise!  Looking forward to your "history so far" when you update it.

Wonderful news about the Marie Devereux interview!  I'm very happy and excited that she consented to do it.  Can't wait to read what she has to say about her life, and her film, TV, and modeling work.  I've never seen an interview with her, ever.  So this is just super!

LSoH has been a part of my life since issue #4 in 1978.  As a Hammer fan it was like I found The Grail and each LSoH issue has remained a source of joy. So yes, I'm looking forward to this one in a big way! 

Many thanks Dick!

Sounds great!  Any possibility of further info/articles on Quatermass II as well? Is one of the better early
 Hammers and quite action packed for the time (those scenes in the gasworks with the driving Bernard music).

I doubt if I could find anything new to say about QUATMERASS II, although maybe a future
feature about  director Val Guest might go into it.
