Quite by chance, the result of a chat with author and ComicSceneUK writer Martin Dallard, I came across The Fantastic Fifties magazine published by Hemlock Books, which has been going for a while now.
A magazine for lovers of retro cinema, The Fantastic Fifties is exclusively devoted to what the publishers describe as one of the richest and most exciting periods in the history of the movies.
Issue 7 – available now – included features such as “Teen Screams”. “Rebels Without a Cause” and “Beware the Blobs” while Issue 8, on sale soon, is very much a Hammer Horror special, with features on Dracula and Hammer Films Glamour Girls.
Neither Hemlock Books nor the magazine have much of a social media presence, with accounts rarely updated and some Facebook pages branded with the magazine’s logos but run by entirely separate entities who apparently no longer have any involvement with the title. Your best point of information is the Hemlock Books site itself.
