World of Horror

Country: UK
Total Issues: 9

British horror magazine, mostly concerned with horror films but occasionally dipping into horror fiction. They ran a couple of stories per issue and, for a couple of issues, also ran true-life adventures (probably reprinted from elsewhere).

The first issue was titled The World of Horror and had "bimonthly" emblazoned on the cover but was undated; from issue 2 it was titled World of Horror and was "monthly", although the editorial indicated that there was a gap in the run between issues 3 and 4 due to industrial action.
