The second volume of Tom Brinkman's excellent BAD MAGS book came out, and I just cracked it open and started enjoying it.

Tom has been very helpful to me during the 4 years that I've been writing THE WEIRD WORLD OF EERIE PUBLICATIONS and it's great to FINALLY see his work completely released. His chapter on Myron Fass will be of great interest to fans of Eerie and bad mags in general.

The two volumes of BAD MAGS are essential for fans of sleazy fun!

Thanks for pointing this out. I believe he wrote an article in Headpress a few years back about Ed Wood's secret career as a sleaze/porn/horror fiction scribe - a truly great tribute to a side of the man I had no idea about. Much luck on your book - it sounds intriguing!

BAD MAGS has a chapter on the Ed Wood magazine output. There is also a chapter on sleazy movie mags in Vol. 2 that many Maniacs (myself included) will drool over. Can a new collecting obsession be far behind?!

I bought the first one, the second volume looks way better for content. Lots of Manson stuff.

I tried repeatedly over ayear go to get BAD MAGS from AMAZON and HALF.COM. With NO LUCK. Orders were cancelled!

It now says on the BAD MAGS site, that Vol 1 is SOLD OUT.

>>>Volume 1 - Publisher SOLD OUT!

Yet, I'm now finding listings on AMAZON and HALF again... Hope my order goes thru this time!

I'd like to hear more about Eerie Publications. Those cheapo B&W mags sold at my local pharmacy rack when I was a kid and I spent too much time reading them.

Mark- I think that Amazon is all set now. They had it for pre-order for 2 years while it was still being worked on. (I guess Headpress jumped the gun or something...) Headpress's store is sold out but I'll bet Amazon is OK.

Tim- the book is almost done and I'm preparing my pitch. Wish me luck!
