MONSTER! #30 is the better part of 164 pages thick, and just as chock-a-block with monstrous goodness as ever. As for the contents, it's the usual unusual mash-up of more modern and vintage monster material; a tasty smorgasbord/cornucopia of the old, the new and the not-quite-so-old-or-new. As per our hunky three-eyed cover boy (the title critter from his newest movie TRICLOPS!), we've got lashings of loving reportage on the DIY-with-TLC creature features of regional American filmmaker Brett Piper, one of whose many specialties in practical special effects is stop-motion animation (forget CGI!). In addition, we have an in-depth essay on the early works of David Cronenberg, with an especial focus on his still-disturbingly-effective 1979 "monster kid" shocker THE BROOD. Also in this issue, by way of a moving and touching Special Tribute/Remembrance by someone who knew him, we pay our last respects to the much-loved and sadly recently late Vince Rotolo, "King of the Monster Podcasters" and a MonsterBash regular who shall be sorely missed. We've also got the second and final part of our feature article "Bathed in Blood", covering the cinematic excesses of notorious vampiristic aristocrat Countess Elizabeth Báthory. In addition to all this, we've got oodles of creature feature reviews and eye-catching original artwork besides. Just for the record, our roster of talent for MONSTER! #30 is: Stephen D. Sullivan, Eric Messina, Michael Hauss, Dennis Capicik, Christos Mouroukis, Stephen R. Bissette, C. Michael Hall, Andy Ross, Martín Núñez, Kinshuk Gaur, Salvatore Tarantola, Tony Strauss, Brian Harris, Steve Fenton, and Tim Paxton. Detailed video availability (most of it correct, as per usual, we hope!) rounds things out. Enjoy!

Bedtime means brushing your teeth, putting on pajamas, snuggling, and kissing your family goodnight. For monsters, bedtime looks a little different. They brush their teeth, but not with a toothbrush. They get dressed for bed, but not in slippers and nightcaps. They snuggle, but not with a blankie or a teddy bear. Monsters Go Night-Night takes readers through the bedtime rituals of seven friendly monsters while making each step of the routine a guessing game. Getting ready for bed has never been so much fun!

Ten creepy monsters met ’neath a gnarled pine. One blew away, And then there were nine. And so the countdown begins . . . A mummy, a witch, a ghost, a werewolf, a vampire, and others all gather, but one by one their crowd diminishes. At last there is only one creepy monster left. But what kind of monster is it? Squeals of laughter are sure to accompany the reading of this book from bestselling illustrator Carey F. Armstrong-Ellis, as 10 creepy monsters set out for fun. Praise for Ten Creepy Monsters "Armstrong-Ellis injects just the right amount of humor into her portrayals of the ghoulish bunch, keeping the tone appropriately light." —Kirkus Reviews "Generously detailed acrylics provide a touch of nefarious charm, while a tender surprise ending should gratify trick-or-treaters." —Publishers Weekly "Fun for Halloween or for counting anytime." —School Library Journal "Armstrong-Ellis’ textured images, full of spooky spirit and clever detail, add to the fun. A happy Halloween outing." —Booklist "With rich language and a delightfully dark nighttime palette, this pleasing rhyme begs to be acted out or performed with puppets. The illustrations are appropriately ghoulish." —BookPage "A perfect Halloween read-aloud but a great way to relieve malaise on any day, this picture book also helps young readers learn to count as the monsters fall by the wayside in gruesome fashion." —Reading Today Online "Author/artist Carey F. Armstrong-Ellis clearly had fun crafting this silly, lighthearted Halloween tale of monsters who disappear…" —The Seattle Times "Carey F. Armstrong-Ellis delivers a delightful rhyming lesson in subtraction." —USA Today

Although the horror genre has been embraced by filmmakers around the world, Japan has been one of the most prolific and successful purveyors of such films. From science fiction terrors of the 1950s like Godzilla to violent films like Suicide Circle and Ichi the Killer, Japanese horror film has a diverse history. While the quality of some of these films has varied, others have been major hits in Japan and beyond, frightening moviegoers around the globe. Many of these films—such as the Ringu movies—have influenced other horror productions in both Asia and the United States. The Encyclopedia of Japanese Horror Films covers virtually every horror film made in Japan from the past century to date. In addition to major and modest productions, this encyclopedia also features entries on notable directors, producers, and actors. Each film entry includes comprehensive details, situates the film in the context and history of Japanese horror cinema, and provides brief suggestions for further reading. Although emphasizing horror as a general theme, this encyclopedia also encompasses other genres that are associated with this theme, including Comedy Horror, Science Fiction Horror, Cyber-punk Horror, Ero Guru (Erotic Grotesque), and Anime Horror. The Encyclopedia of Japanese Horror Films is a comprehensive reference volume that will appeal to both cinema scholars as well as to the many fans of this popular genre.
