Alternative Magazine Online reviewed the She Never Sleeps EP in 2012, describing it as “the dull ache and lonesome musicality of Ray Lamontagne with slightly more light at the end of the tunnel”, before going on to say that Zach Hurd is “a singer songwriter that’s crying out to be discovered by the masses and truly deserves to be.” To fund his 4th studio album, he is hoping to raise $10,000 via Kickstarter by the 20th October 2013. AMO is therefore proud to present yet another exclusive online interview with the hugely talented New York City-based musician Zach Hurd!

INTERVIEW – In Conversation With Kim Newman (Author, Johnny Alucard)

By Marty Mulrooney

JohnnyAlucardInterview

Kim Newman is an award-winning author, English journalist and film critic. In 2011 Alternative Magazine Online gave a glowing review of the Titan Books reissue of Anno Dracula: “Kim Newman is a master storyteller, steadily layering multiple details and characters on top of the core narrative without ever losing focus or confusing the reader. A breathless account of a 19th century England ruled by Count Dracula, Newman may have taken inspiration from a number of sources, but ultimately makes this unique story entirely his own.” After an extremely long wait and much anticipation, the fourth instalment, Johnny Alucard (Titan Books, September 2013), has finally been released in the UK. It is therefore with great pleasure that AMO welcomes back vampire fiction expert Kim Newman for an exclusive online interview!

In June 2013, Alternative Magazine Online reviewed The Last of Us (PlayStation 3), describing it as “one of the most emotionally engaging and harrowing experiences ever committed to the video game medium.” A huge part of the game’s success can be directly attributed to the performances of the talented actors involved, who provided motion capture as well as voice acting. Merle Dandridge kindly joined us in 2011 for an interview about her role as Alyx Vance in the Half Life video games. Today, AMO is delighted to welcome her back for an exclusive online interview where she talks about her role as Marlene in The Last of Us, the possibility of Half Life 3, and what it was like working on the Sons of Anarchy set!
