Fangoria magazine had been a mainstay of horror fandom for 38 years, but this year they shut their doors. 

I remember when Fangoria started, and how fun it was to have a magazine dedicated to horror in all its facets. 

In this episode, I talk about Fangoria, how it came to be, and what it meant to the fans and artists in modern horror.  The magazine not only had articles that are still worth looking back to, but the letters to the editor section are a lot of fun to revisit too. 

Join me in this look back at Fangoria magazine.

Thanks for listening.
