The latest issue of Ghastly Phantasms, a digital fanzine described as “a love letter to classic horror films and the people we love who made them happen”, spotlights American actor Brain Donlevy, who played Professor Bernard Quatermass in the first two big screen outings of Nigel Kneale’s fondly-remembered SF saga.

What started as a group of friends around the world coming together to watch classic horror films in a time of global crisis became Ghastly Phantasms, a classic horror fanzine focused on expressing love for classic horror and preserving the stories of those involved with the beloved genre.

A new issue is released online for free each month and the team will soon be printing twelve-issue volumes that will be sold online and in some physical stores.

Issue 14 leads with a feature written by Ava Maddox documenting actor Brian Donlevy’s career and assessing his approach to the character of Bernard Quatermass. The feature includes an illustration by multi-award-winning artist Mark Maddox, who leapt at the chance to draw the heroic scientist.

Mark is an eight time recipient of the Rondo Award for Artist of the Year and once for the Pulp Factory Award for Cover of the Year, and has created illustrations for SCREEM Magazine, Doctor Who Magazine, Mad Scientist and many other publications.
