Magazines & Media

From the early 1970s I contributed pieces to many magazines, as well as newspapers.   In the beginning these writings were primarily about modern-day witchcraft, and appeared in publications such as Titbits, Witchcraft which was latterly renamed New Witchcraft, New Occult, L’Inconnue, L’Autre Monde, Nostra and even Penthouse (which in those days used to publish some fairly serious articles believe it or not!). In later years as more and more independent titles sprung up I also contributed to magazines such as Kevin Carlyon’s pagan Beltane Fire, The Gothic Society’s Udolpho magazine co-ordinated by Jennie Gray , Athene, a mysteries magazine which was the brainchild of Trevor Beer, and The Unexplained magazine amongst others. Some of these and other submissions by myself to magazines can be found under Articles. And of course let us not forget my own magazine – or rather, that of the Highgate Vampire SocietySuspended in Dusk.

I have always preferred writing for and being interviewed for magazines as opposed to newspapers. There is usually much less room for error on behalf of interviewers, and of course the benefit of dedicated and specific kinds of readership. It is great to be able to reach out to new readers via this medium, and you can find some of the many interviews which I have been asked to give below.   I shall make sure that more are added in the near future – a promise which I did not fulfil on my last website, but which I swear on oath to adhere to with this new relaunch. As long as people keep hitting this page that is!
