Rue Morgue has just published a follow-up piece about Snuff: Real Death and Screen Media on its website. The article features both Neil Jackson and Shaun Kimber and proclaims, rightly so, that the book is "the first-ever compendium of academic essays dealing with the topics attendant to real death on film."
The article, "Delve Deeper into Snuff: Real Death and Screen Media" can be accessed here.
I've known about this for sometime, but I'm now finally able to spread the word. Dr Xavier Aldana Reyes of Manchester Metropolitan University is now editor of a brand new series for University of Wales Press, Horror Studies: "the first academic series dedicated to Horror in all its fictional manifestations."
This is clearly an exciting time for those of us with research interests in horror. Xavier's new series, I am sure, will nicely complement mine and Austin Fisher's Global Exploitation Cinemas series with Bloomsbury.
I am very honoured to have been included as a board member alongside so many highly-regarded scholars. Proposals are being accepted now!
