This is the new home for the old website Monster Magazines - The First Decade (which you may have noticed has been shortened to just Monster Magazines, as the old sutitle no longer applies). The old site, along with all other Geocities websites, will be deleted (or was deleted) on Oct. 26, 2009.

I chose the blog format over the website format because I thought the advantages outweighed the disadvantages (which are mostly of a cosmetic nature). On the plus side, we now feature large views of the magazine covers in the cover galleries (and of any other pics on the site, by clicking on the small ones) and updates will be much easier to do (and therefore more frequent).

The blog is actually two blogs. This is the main blog, which will contain all manner of monster mag info, musings, updates, notices and whatever else I think might be of interest to someone who visites a site like this. The other blog ( is where the cover galleries reside.

The cover galleries (as on the old website) will, for the most part, be limited to English language titles from the late '50s to the late '70s that had newsstand distribution and who's content was mostly film related. There have been, literally, hundreds of horror/sci-fi film magazines and fanzines, from around the world, published over the last half century, but ya gotta stop somewhere.

Posting will be a little light, here, as I work putting up the rest of the cover galleries. The 1950s and 1960s mag galleries are already done. The 1970s mags (including The Monster Times, House of Hammer and others) are yet to come.

Use the links, in the right hand column, to go to the cover galleries, or to the websites of current print magazines, webzines and other places of interest.

Thanks for visiting!
