Yup, I did the first review for the next BiB tonight so it's official now: Banned in Britain #3 is on its way! The movie btw is 'GATOR BAIT, hah! Next up is 'GATOR BAIT 2: CAJUN JUSTICE!! I've also got an editorial so all I need now is another 36 pages (I'm opting for 40 pages this time). Woo-hoo!! 'The missiles are flying', as the president says in Cronenberg's THE DEAD ZONE. I've actually had an outline of the mag laying around on my computer for quite some time (like, forever), complete with cover, editorial, and another 37 empty pages! In my editorial I had explained why I was going to deliberately change BiB from being a horror/splatter movie mag to an overall psychotronic movie mag. However, as I mentioned in my last post, to the best of my knowledge, there are NO fanzines left in the world of this sort, and so I thought it over and, well, decided to do what I originally set out to do; make a full-on, hardcore horror 'n' gore movie mag!! Yep, back to the old days! If no one else is gonna do it I will. Uh, and incidentally I stumbled over a British eBay seller who was selling out from his collection of pre-cert video tapes that has been sitting on his shelves for 25 years! Obviously I had to buy some (too many!!!) of them!! Fortunately (!!!) they were Betamax tapes (!!!!!) so they were cheap and although pre-cert tapes usually are an arm and a leg these ended up being... not very much. Ahh, it's a good day to start off another BiB!
