Charlton Publications Inc: CT. 1981.
First edition.
Magazine.
All three issues published of short-lived monster movie magazine edited by Roger Elwood that also contained fiction. All three issues are very uncommon.

US letter-size saddle-stapled Cinema magazine. Publisher: Charlton Comics. Editor: Roger Elwood. Three bimonthly issues, July to November 1981. ''a final attempt by Charlton at a Monster Movies magazine, this title covered such films of the period as Clash of the Titans (1981), Escape from New York (1981) and Venom (1981). It differed from most such publications in that each issue also carried several short horror stories; despite Elwood's conservative Christian bias, some interesting material was published. Fiction appeared from Steve Vance and George Zebrowski, the latter having a story in every issue. Perhaps the most notable fiction was ''The Witch of the Marsh'' (in Diogenes in London, coll 1893) by H B Marriott Watson, reprinted in no 2. Charlton was already experiencing distribution problems as the company neared the end of its existence, and as a result this magazine is now difficult to locate'' (Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).

''ranges widely through the literature of the future from its earliest days to the most recent forecasts of futurology, and takes in much work which tends to be ignored by historians of genre sf. This book broke new ground in the history and sociology of ideas, focusing on the interrelation between differing expectations and predictions of the future in different historical periods and the characteristic future images they yielded, in pictures as well as in words'' (Peter Nicholls/Encyclopedia of SF).
