Psychotronic Video (1989 - 2007)


Recommended Posts

Voilà un thread qui arrive un peu tard…et oui malheureusement la revue s’arrête…je viens seulement de le comprendre (je faisais un petit tour juste pour voir si il y avait un nouveau numéro mais sans jamais descendre un peu plus pour lire la triste nouvelle).


Michael J. Weldon

Meanwhile after 18 years and 41 issues - Psychotronic is finished for now as a magazine. This very difficult decision shouldn't have taken me so long to make but I was still trying to restructure and keep going. I

had been planning to publish the very overdue issue #42 (pictured) but too many things have changed.

Dommage, dommage pour ce défenseur du bis... purée, ça commence à sentir le sapin pour les revues US, après Cinefantastique et une autre dont je ne me souviens plus du nom, c'est l'hécatombe !


Sinon il y a moins d'un mois à NY, je tombe sur la fameuse "Psychotronic Encyclopedia of Film" à 11$ dans une librairie d'occase... j'hésite, me disant que j'allais repasser après le boulot... bonne idée car en revenant quelques jours plus tard, le livre avait été "déclassé" des étagères pour échouer sur les étales à l'extérieur à... 1$ !!!
