The Scream and Misty Special is back for a second round https://downthetubes.net/?p=99362. Black Max and Max the Computer return, and there is a new character. There are no details on the Tales from the Mist that will appear. But I sure hope Hannah Berry was able to write another followup to The Sentinels as she hoped for!

Got my copy in Redhill Smiths today. Read one of the Misty short stories. Pretty good.

I noticed majority female protagonists even in the "Scream" stories.

Bookworm I was already familiar with, Mint Condition I didn't realise was a reprint at first, I really liked that story, so glad they decided to reprint.

I think one of the biggest problems with this is that a lot of the stories are set up as continuation rather than completes, which would be great if it was coming out monthly or something instead of yearly, but maybe the goal is to have it come out more frequently, which would be good. Thirteenth Floor, Black Max, (both continuing from last year) joined by Decomposition Jones and Black Beth all seem to be set for regular series.

They are reprinting Mint Condition from the fanzine Misty Special?

Yes, I hadn't read that fanzine before so I was not familiar with it.

Reprinting stuff from the fanzine? That is a surprise.

Ironically, the original Misty never celebrated Halloween. I checked the issues at that date and both are just regular issues.

I really enjoyed it, Black Beth and Black Max were the highlights for me.

This may also be of interest to people "Bite Me" Magazine (which I am not familiar with), is also stepping up to fill the Misty/Scream/Spellbound gap as a new mystery picture paper. Including 2 Misty reprints Who Killed Teacher and Twin Catastrophes . I am quite intrigued and have ordered a copy, look forward to its arrival!

They have reprinted Bookworm in colour rather than B&W from Misty issue 99 as well.
