Cover Story

I am pleased to report that my review of The Darkening Garden. A Short Lexicon of Horror  by John Clute is the cover story of the March issue of NYRSF , with the witty portrait of Clute by Jason van Hollander (see under FUSTIAN ).

Send for a copy of the issue ; send for a copy of the book.

Another post this evening.
