Summer's almost here and the time is right...

...for a roundup of my writing for various websites over the past few months.

Working backwards, yesterday was a big one werewolf-wise thanks to the publication of Werewolves Versus Fascism, in which I have a short piece illustrated by my good friend K. Pease. The whole zine can cost you as little as $1 and it's for a good cause because all proceeds will benefit the Southern Poverty Law Center. I also reviewed The Werewolf Filmography: 300+ Movies by Bryan Senn. This was in lieu of my regular Full Moon Features column for Werewolf News, which so far this year has seen me tackle Neowolf, 2014's Beauty and the Beast, and the Ginger Snaps prequel and sequel.

Earlier this month, I Ran the Series of '60s Christopher Lee-starring Fu Manchu movies for The A.V. Club. This was my second Run the Series article for the site following the one I did on The Howling last summer. With luck, it won't be my last.

In the meantime, I've been steadily contributing articles to Crooked Scoreboard, starting with my appraisal of Kevin Smith's Chasing Amy on the occasion of its 20th anniversary. My other articles for the site include Bloody Valentines: 14 Blood-Soaked and Testosterone-Fueled St. Valentine’s Day Massacres, a roundup of Zodiac Killer Movies written in tandem with the tenth anniversary of David Fincher's Zodiac, and a tenth-anniversary appreciation of Edgar Wright's Hot Fuzz. And I have a major project in the hopper that will keep me up on the Scoreboard for the next month and a half.

Lastly, for Oscilloscope Laboratories' Musings, I wrote In The Loneliest Place: The Allure Of The Homme Fatale In ‘Stranger By The Lake’, which links that film to Nicholas Ray's seminal noir In a Lonely Place. As always, a pleasure to write for them.
