Anyone who lasted the distance listening to me on Bill Ackerman’s Supporting Characters podcast would have heard mention of my first steps into print with Fatal Visions.
The brainchild of editor/writer/legend Michael Helms, Fatal Visions is largely unknown by cineastes outside Australia but, I would say, is definitely something that should be sought out by anyone who loves films of a less-than-commercial nature from a bygone era.
The individual editions themselves are as rare as hen’s teeth. BUT, in his infinite wisdom, Michael has released two volumes as a ‘best of’ Fatal Visions – Fatal Visions: The Wonder Years (1988-1989) and Fatal Visions: The Golden Age (1990-1998). I appear in the latter book, of which you can see the back cover and a couple of insider pages below.
The feature image for this blog post is the cover of The Golden Age – Michael Helms sporting a bullet to the head (fine title for a film).
