While some 'zines appear to be struggling with their publishing schedules (FANGORIA, DIABOLIQUE, VIDEO WATCHDOG), Canada's RUE MORGUE keeps delivering on time. One of the best-designed of the monster/horror magazines, RM, headed by Dave Alexander, maintains a strong fan base. Here is the contents of the latest issue:
