Jessie Lilley (editor-in-chief) is still here and delighted that Lynda Williams has redesigned the Mondo Cult website. Doesn't it look great?! Check her out at Baywood Design Studio. Let her know we sent you!
Your fearless editor allowed herself to look like who-shot-Lizzy on camera recently for a Tom Graeff documentary. You can view the clip below, courtesy of eRooster.TV.
In 2010, Jessie was named Editor of Philip Kim's Famous Monsters of Filmland (FM 3.0). In that position she oversaw issues 250 through 256, Famous Monsters Underground, Famous Monsters Retro issue 70 and pulled together the Martin Powell Film Book and Joe Jusko Cover for Retro 71 before resigning her chair when a year had passed. There were many reasons for her leaving Famous Monsters, but the main one was to put her full energy back into Mondo Cult.
Jessie is very proud of her time spent at the helm of Forrest J Ackerman's 'baby' and notes with pride that she stands as the only female editor of that august publication. Her thanks are extended to Philip Kim for entrusting her with such a treasured opportunity.
Jessie is interviewed fairly regularly by various Classic and Current Horror Websites. You can link to them on the Mondo Cult Home Page.
Writing from her lower extremities is what she loves best. Jessie lives in Santa Cruz County, CA at the top of the hill at the end of the road, with her husband, musician David Paul Campbell, 13 cats, a carton of smokes and a bottle of Bushmills. - photo credit: Terry Wagner
