The fang gang at FM are introducing a new magazine, one which will broaden the spectrum of coverage to sci fi and fantasy. As you may have surmised, it is called Shock Theater Classics.

For quite some time now, FM has been lauding the eventual arrival of a companion mag to FM, and we are but mere weeks away from that realization.

There are questions as to why this is coming out now, in the heat of the FM Trademark dispute, as Ray Ferry says FM will go forward in some capacity. Ferry's response is that he works on his timetable, and this was due to happen anyway. Regardless, the first two issues of SCT will carry the Shock logo as well as the FM logo, and it will be incorporated into the run, much like Monster World was back in the day. STC 1 is FM248, STC 2 is FM249, and the hallmark FM250 will follow shortly thereafter.

As for the new mag, love the look, love the logo, and am pumped there is yet another monster mag on the horizon.

Go to Masters of Horror to read more about it, or click on the FM logo on the MOH homepage.

I have ballyhooed a couple times about performing at this years Riverdays Festival, and I'm quite excited we are now on the heels of it happening.

Have been working on some new tunes (well, old tunes, new to me), and think I have a good mix of Rock and Pop. And just for Nolan and his sensibilities, I will be doing Breaking the Law sometime during the event. Perhaps after Donny Osmond's Puppy Love, which I'm doing for Mike.

If you happen to be around Orland Maine, come and join us this fourth of July weekend!!

Rock on.....

Have just uploaded a new home page graphic and updated Latest News.

I've learned some links in 'Surfing the Monster Web' are now inactive, and am working toward fixing that issue. Hey, what can I say, people change their domain names.

Take care and God Bless,
