Retro Fan #17 is here!

Time for another unsolicited, uncompensated, but not unearned plug for TwoMorrows' RetroFan magazine, which for the first time in memory hit my mailbox before the digital copy subscribers get early.  So it was a big surprise this time, and I didn't know much about the contents, either.

This Halloween-themed issue doesn't have a ton of BOTNS-era TV material, but it does feature an interview with Dark Shadows star Lara Parker.  Members of our Facebook group will not be surprised to learn that I just saw her in a two-parter of Galactica 1980 as well (not covered in the interview, much to my chagrin, though her appearance on Kolchak is).

In addition to plenty of other Halloween-themed material, like a piece on Aurora model kits, a history of mad Monster Party, and an extensive look at The Haunting, there's a story on the original George of the Jungle and an appreciation of Jan Smithers (not that we need prompting to appreciate Jan Smithers).

It's all in the usual attractive, colorful package, and each issue comes highly recommended by this here podcast. Check it out, and tell 'em BOTNS sent ya!
