"Temple of Schlock [was] a photocopied cut-and-paste fanzine that I co-founded with Paul DeCirce in Syracuse, NY back in July of 1987. At the time, I was 16 years old and Paul was 15. Heavily influenced by Steve Puchalski's Slimetime, which was published across town and distributed in the Syracuse University area, Temple of Schlock reviewed new and old horror, action and exploitation movies that were being released to theaters and videocassette.
During the four years of the Temple's existence, we produced 24 issues and accumulated close to 150 subscribers from all over the world. We also had a good roster of contributing writers, like Jeff Smith (of Wet Paint), Dave Szurek, Kris Gilpin, and John W. Donaldson, and cool graphic artists including Barry Wooldridge and Jeff Gaither doing stuff for us.
Paul and I edited the first 16 issues together, then Paul took a break and I did #17 and 18 on my own. Paul returned for #19, then left for good. I edited the next five issues and started a sixth, but called it quits in December of 1991. #25 was never finished.
Paul and I have recently reopened the Temple as a MySpace page. We can be found here: www.myspace.com/originaltempleofschlock. All of the covers are scanned on the site, and we're slowly scanning the original issues and posting those as well (but only #18 is up as of now). Come by and say hi!"
