Also, I’ll be chatting on the “Arts Brew” programme on the Z103 Internet Radio again today, around 1.40pm. I’ll be discussing the issue I raised about the under-representation of women in the horror industry, although this is not a problem unique to horror. Women are under-represented across the Arts, and there is even a movement in theatrical circles to try and address this. It will be my third appearance on “Arts Brew”, and I’ve been enjoying the experience so far.
There has been some linkage to my blog post regarding the SFX Horror edition, as well as a post by David Barnett at the Guardian blog.
I wrote a short query to the magazine about the matter, and I received a note from
Editor Ian Berriman last night saying he wanted to take the time to give me a considered response. So, I’m looking forward to reading that.
