I received the latest issue yesterday, and spent last evening sorting through another fantastic compilation of things dark and wonderful. Ii did see in the back of the magazine where you are going to discontinue Dark Realms with the Halloween issue. I hate to see the publication stop, but i completely understand and wish only the very best for you in all of your current, and future, endeavors. Ii have all of the issues, save the very first one. that I still cannot seem to find. They'll certainly remain a treasured part of my personal library.
Dark regards, John

In Starring the Plaza, a labor of love conceived and created by pop-cultural historian Patty Farmer, the hotel shines in a new light: a Klieg light, as it were. Page after page of moments captured from movies, plays, TV shows, parties, premieres, and press events form a new kind of chronicle of New York’s favorite landmark. Readers will find all their favorite Plaza-on-film moments here―plus a few they might not have been aware of. There are even some Hollywood recreations of the place included―Plaza Pretenders―but it’s clear that no amount of movie magic could ever beat the real thing.

Though she’s looking forward to her move, Katie is wary about mingling in her boyfriend’s East Coast elite circles. She soon discovers Southampton isn’t all that it seems to be on the surface—and neither are the people who live there.

Short, emotional, literary, powerful―Tears We Cannot Stop is the book that all Americans who care about the current and long-burning crisis in race relations will want to read.

In a way, this makes sense. A recent Guardian article describes how women have historically been drawn to the genre. Many beloved horror films have strong female leads: “Carrie,” “The Descent” and “The Witch,” to name a few.

To many, this isn’t exactly news. The lack of women in film – in front of and behind the camera – has been at the forefront of Hollywood criticism in recent years, with scholars and writers detailing the various ways women tend to be underrepresented or cast in stereotypical roles.

Bobby Comfort and Sammy “the Arab” Nalo were highly skilled jewel thieves who specialized in robbing luxury Manhattan hotels. (They once robbed Sophia Loren’s suite, relieving the Italian actress of over $6 million in gems.) With the blessing of the Lucchese crime family, their next plot targeted the posh Pierre Hotel―host to kings and queens, presidents and aldermen, and the wealthiest of the wealthy.
