The horror film reveals as much, if not more, about the British psyche as the heritage film or the social realist drama. But like a mad relative locked in the attic, British horror cinema has been ignored and maligned. Even when it has been celebrated, neglect is not far behind and what studies there have been have been have concentrated largely on the output of Hammer, the best-known producers of British horror. But that is only part of the story. It’s a tradition that encompasses work by both celebrated auteurs such as Hitchcock and Polanski, as well as a series of opportunistic, often-unashamed hacks. Frightmares is an in-depth analysis of the home-grown horror film, each chapter anchored by a close study of two or more key titles, consisting of textual analysis, production history, marketing and reception. Although broadly chronological, attention is also be paid to the thematic links, emphasising both the wide-range of the genre and highlighting some of the less-explored avenues. Chapters focus on the origins of British horror and its foreign influences, Hammer (of course), the influence of American International Pictures, notably their Vincent Price films, and other American filmmakers, the ‘savage Seventies’ and the new wave of twenty-first century British horror.

The Life And Times Of A D Blumlein

Burns, a physicist retired to a second career in the history of electrical engineering, presents the second biography of Blumlein (1903-42) this year. He describes how the British electronics engineer contributed enormously to the fields of telephony and electrical measurements, monophonic and stereophonic recording and reproduction, high definition television, electronics, antennas and cables, and radar systems of various types. Because the policy of the company he worked for discouraged publishing, only two learned society papers exist, there is no collection of personal letters, and most his friends and coworkers are dead, Burns has had to draw heavily on the 128 patents granted him between 1927 and 1942, but relegates the technical material to chapter-end notes for the sake of those who just want a good story.

Some of the writers August Derleth published during his 32 year reign at Arkham House have become legends among collectors and connoisseurs of weird fiction. Others have faded into unfortunate obscurity. Peter Ruber now brings 21 writers to life in detailedbiographical essays that document little-known events through exhaustive research, and their long correspondence with August Derleth. These essays and an extensive introduction provide a rare and sometimes controversial insider's history of Arkham House, in which the editor also challenges some of the myths perpetuated by misinformed critics over the last three decades. With the addition of 21 rare stories and letters (most published here for the first time), the 445 pages of "Arkham"s Masters of Horror" form a book within a book. This unique and important anthology is required reading for everyone who enjoys weird fiction, and is interested in learning more about Arkham House, its founder, and the writers who made the era from 1939 to 1971 one of the most exciting in the history of specialty press publishing. Featured writers include: H.P. Lovecraft, Clark Ashton Smith, Robert Bloch, Henry S. Whitehead, Robert E. Howard, H. Russell Wakefield, Seabury Quinn, Vincent Starrett, E. Hoffmann Price, Carl Jacobi, Donald Wandrei, Ramsey Campbell, and many others.
