    This December, FM pays tribute to one of cinema's most legendary monster makers: Ray Harryhausen. From friendly mechanical owls to misunderstood Venusians to giants bent on death and destruction, Ray Harryhausen took lumps of clay and didn't simply animate them, but breathed life into them, imbuing each with a unique soul. Films like Jason and the Argonauts, The 7th Voyage of Sinbad, 20 Million Miles to Earth, and Clash of the Titans made him a legend. But the man himself was just as dynamic as his work. Cover by Terry Wolfinger. Cover price $9.99.

    When we lost Richard Matheson, the world lost one of its titans. From literary works and films like I Am Legend, A Stir of Echoes, and Hell House to TV classics like William Shatner's episodes of The Twilight Zone, Matheson was a writer who could work brilliantly in any medium. FM #272 looks at his life, work, and influence, and includes a special, exclusive memorial from members of his family. It also takes a look at the long and wonderful history of Sci-Fi literature. Our founding editor wasn't nicknamed "Mr. Sci-Fi" for nothing! In honor of his greatest love, we hit the high points and see how it all evolved, from Wells to Asimov to Crichton and beyond. With "History of Sci-Fi" cover by Jason Edmiston. Cover price $9.99.
