My Fortean Times feature on Slenderman

So, this happened… I wrote the cover feature for this month’s Fortean Times.

Ever since I first read FT as a kid (when it was still a fanzine rather than a professional monthly), I had a dream that I’d be in its pages some day – maybe in an article about weird shit, possibly in a review or even a memorial in the Strange Deaths column!

To not only be commissioned to write for them, but to get the cover first time out, is literally a dream come true – and the highlight of my writing career so far.

Huge thanks to FT editor David Sutton for asking me to write for them, Jenny Coleman for her interesting alternate view of Slendy alongside my piece and Etienne Gilfillan for the beautiful cover art.

Issue 317 of Fortean Times is out now.

  1. Posted 2 stories about this issue on my forum and one on my paranormal blog,

    http://www.themeowisoutthere.blogspot.com

    as well as on my Google + page.

    I reported on the Slenderman phenomenon on my forum in March long before the mainstream media latched on to it & have had multiple posts on it since then.

    And I just posted your blog mention on my forum and my Google + page as well & I did 2 videos on You Tube on the subject too.

    I will be doing another video and commenting on both articles when I get the FT issue with them on Wednesday.
