Happy St. Patrick's Day and also a Happy Easter Season to everyone with this, the first SS issue to almost fill a borderless cover with one photograph.  Still counting in at 116 pages (including the front and back) this issue #14 concludes an interview with friend Curtis Harrington, and also includes interviews with John Waters, Robert Bloch, Ann Blyth, Barbara Shelley and of course, much, much more!

*I will always remember with great affection my evening with Mr. Harrington.  Private screening of a fellow director's film and dinner and then a little drive about town with him as he showed me some of his favorite places in Los Angeles.  Thank you so much, Curtis, for a memory that I will cherish to the end.
