GRAVEYARD RENDEZVOUS 37 â€“ FAN FICTION CHRISTMAS SPECIAL, self-published, magazine, Â£3.00, http://guynsmith.wordpress.com
Reviewed by Stewart Horn
A Christmas edition of the Guy N. Smith fanzine, and quite entertaining for what it is.Â It features the usual GNS-themed articles, features and reviews, some short fiction by the man himself, and four very short stories by fans.
The fan fiction is the most fun â€“ all Christmas-themed and appropriately macabre.Â There is an old-fashioned ghost story, a contemporary ghost story, and nice graphic EC comic style piece, and a guest appearance by Satan and his festive fairies.Â The whole Christmas package really.
The quality of the writing is uneven, often clumsy or clichÃ©d, but there are ideas here not directly filched from Smithâ€™s books.Â As far as I know.
A harmless and seasonal way to pass half an hour.
