Dave Golder has been a magazine writer for over 30 years, specialising in science fiction, fantasy, and horror films, TV, comics and books for magazines such as SFX, Total Film and Radio Times, as well as various websites. He’s also written about magpies and Worzel Gummidge for Countryfile Magazine. He’s also authored non-fiction books on movie posters and the history of science fiction and fantasy.
