No. 34 / 1999

Happy Holidays from Scarlet Street Magazine!  I'm pleased to say that I kept to my schedule this year and have now scanned all 55 issues of this wonderful collection and they'll be ready to post through to the end of 2019.  This coming year's schedule will include moving ahead in finding the supplemental photos that I like to include along with the post of each issue.  It's just something that I like to do which, I believe, connects the archival material with the present, probably because I feel I'm adding something 'new'.

This issue, SS #34, covers the two most famous 'frat houses' that any real gothic fantasy lover would ever hope to be a part of:  "House of Frankenstein" & "House of Dracula".  What a festive holiday treat!  Although I wasn't able to come up with much in the rare photo department, at least you can see some of your favorites in a high quality format.  Remember, each page and photo can be selected individually for easier reading and inspection!  

So please have fun with Scarlet Street #34 from 1999, and 'we' all wish you a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year of 2018.  (I'll be back in February with SS #35!)
