    Q&A: Chuck Palahniuk on “BEAUTIFUL YOU”

    Brilliant madman author Chuck Palahniuk (FIGHT CLUB) released his latest opus, BEAUTIFUL YOU, this past October, a twisted tale that follows Penny Harrigan, a low-level associate in a big Manhattan law firm who finds herself a test subject for a line of sex toys to be marketed in a nationwide chain of boutiques called “Beautiful You.” But that’s just the beginning of her story, as Penny becomes an unwitting pawn in a maniacal plot for world sexual domination. Like all of Palahniuk’s stuff, the horror hides in the skin of the surreal and socio-political, and FANGORIA caught up with Chuck to discuss…

  • A Message From Managing Editor Ken W. Hanley

    A little over two years ago, I hurriedly made my way through New York, acting like a bucket of nerves as I searched for the offices of FANGORIA nearby Times Square. Having loved the magazine while growing up, I was excited to have learned they were looking for interns and that my unique skill set put me in the peculiar position of qualifying for such an opportunity. So when I finally made my way upstairs through a cramped elevator and found the door adorning the FANGORIA skull logo, I couldn’t have been more anxious, nor more ignorant of the path my life would soon quickly take.

    Ashley Thorpe’s “BORLEY RECTORY” Set To Wrap Campaign

    UK animator and veteran FANGORIA contributor Ashley Thorpe has been steamrolling his Indiegogo campaign to raise the scratch to bring his magnum opus, THE BORLEY RECTORY, to life.

And though the campaign closes on December 15th, he’s still looking for a few more shekels to see the flick through.

    Exodus: “BLOOD IN, BLOOD OUT” (Album Review)

    The first thing that comes to mind when listening to the opening track of Exodus’s new album, BLOOD IN, BLOOD OUT, is, that unlike several of the band’s peers, age has in no way mellowed the band in the slightest. “Black 13” is a crushing example of thrash metal done to perfection, as if the band were frozen in a block of ice in 1987 and then released to terrorize the populace (like Christopher Lee’s Dracula in the beginning of Hammer’s 1968 epic DRACULA HAS RISEN FROM THE GRAVE).

    Farewell, from Managing Editor Samuel Zimmerman

    Maybe it wasn’t my first job, but FANGORIA was my First Job. In 2009, I found luck interning for an institution, under the guidance of Tony Timpone and Michael Gingold, no less. Later, I lucked out again. Tony, Michael and owner Tom DeFeo gave me a real shot by bringing me on board full time. Properly educated in, and particularly ravenous for, film and film history, though I was and may be, I was also still a kid with a developing style and soon, a Slaughtered Lamb tattoo.

    “PRETTY LITTLE DEAD GIRLS” (Book Review)

    Even judged by the ridiculously high bar that Mercedes M. Yardley set and reset via a quick succession of gorgeous, perception-altering releases—BEAUTIFUL SORROWS (2012), APOCALYPTIC MONTESSA AND NUCLEAR LULU: A TALE OF ATOMIC LOVE (2013), NAMELESS: THE DARKNESS COMES (2014)—the rising “dark whimsy” author’s latest, PRETTY LITTLE DEAD GIRLS, serves up a particularly delectable, eccentric feast of inspiring, soul-walloping lyrical beauty in the form of a genuinely affecting outsider love story.

    The lights went down at the Trees Club in Dallas, Texas and the invasion began. Texas was under attack! Ace Frehley’s “Space Invader Tour” had landed and the silvery Space Man from Jendel, now dressed in his undercover civilian attire, began to preach the gospel of Rock-N-Roll to the gathered disciples by way of the sonic barrage from his weapon of choice, the Gibson Les Paul.
