NEED HELP FROM FM READERS of the 70s
« on: November 30, 2011, 09:07:39 PM »
Please excuse this cross-post that is also found in the "Memorable Memorabilia" section, but...

If any UMA member had their letter or picture featured in FAMOUS MONSTERS OF FILMLAND in any issue from 1975 thru 1982, I need to hear from you for a magazine article! I'll need your name, what issue # you appeared in, and your favorite science fiction monster in any film up to 1983. Must be a monster, not a dinosaur, not a robot that  looks completely human, not something invisible. Tell me what you remember about it and/or why you are fascinated by it.

Need within a week or so.

Write me at drunkenseveredhead[at]gmail[dot]com or message me here.

Thank you in advance!

I had a letter published in a FOR MONSTERS ONLY, but I'll be damned if I remember the issue.  Sounds like this is gonna be a cool article, Max!

I had one of my masks printed in Fango #84 but alas never in FM. Just took this chance to show off a little, LOL.

I'm pretty sure I had a letter in FM#110... probably was raving about Godzilla. I used to hook the "J" in John and to FM it looked like a "D" so my name appears as "Dohn."

My photo's in FJA's Monsterama #2, wish I could help. I don't know why, but it never occurred to me to write Fang Mail or send a photo back-in-the-day.

CORRECTION: my entry was in Fango #26 ... duh... senior moment.

 I WISH I had written to Famous Monsters though. I called them one time in about 1966 wondering where my back issue was that I sent for. Wanted the one that said Chaney Unmasked! on the front cover but instead they sent me the one with the plastic model of Kong smashing a train on the cover, LOL.
