“The Fleming Files”

Posted February 5, 2014

At Teleport City, The Gutter‘s own Keith examines Ian Fleming’s historical and fictional lives in espionage. “There were many British celebrities who dabbled to some degree or other in intelligence work during the war: Fleming, of course, but also entertainer Noel Coward[,] occult fiction author Dennis Wheatley, even notorious Ordo Templi Orientis leader Aleister Crowley were counted (or counted themselves) among the ranks of British intelligence agents during the Second World War. It can be difficult, given the protected nature of verifiable documentation in this regard, to ascertain how much each of these men was actually involved versus how much of it was self-aggrandizement. Whatever the case, the world needs a story where those four secret agents are assigned the task of combatting Heinrich Himmler and his mystical Vril Society.”

    At Die Danger Die Die Kill,  friend of the Gutter Todd Stadtman shares a list of fine films to enjoy this Spookoween season! “Halloween movie lists have become a staple of the season. But one has to admit that there’s a numbing amount of overlap between them. I mean, does one really need to cram that much Vincent Price into their cinematic diet all in one go? In response, I have called shenanigans, emerged from my sharecropper’s cabin, stumbled down the hill and perched myself in front of the community center’s battered old Mac to do something that I should have done long ago. Below is a list of movies that, if you can find them, will guarantee you a Halloween like no other.”
